Would you say an hour for dinner as well, or does that take longer?
thanks

We have done this a few times, and we were in and out fast. Like an hour.

The only princess you don't see while eating is Cinderella as mentioned by pp. The other princesses are while you are eating. We were more near an hour and a half sometimes two hours but this included check in, Cinderella photo, waiting for table, and eating/princesses.

Last year some angry woman who didn't have an ADR who was right in front of me at check in and thought it was ridiculous that you would need a ADR got seated about 20 minutes before our party. When I approached the CMs as to why our seating was taking so long after she got in ahead of us with no ADR I commented that I guess only *****ing gets you in....but I did not yell just pointed out the flaw.

Last Sunday we saw Jasmine, Snow White, Aurora and Ariel, with Cinderella being downstairs.

We were hoping to see Belle since that's where we saw her the year before. We actually didn't see Belle at Akershush the next morning either. Cinderella was at Akershush instead, and Aurora was doing the photo with families. Was really a bummer to not see Belle at either of the character meals.

Because you meet Cinderella before you sit, does she sign? My DS isn't too excited about going to CRT (we are going for nieces 3rd birthday dinner) but he loves getting autographs!

That really is a bummer, given how hard it is to see Belle these days. But she definitely is gone from CRT. Akershus sounds like a real fluke.

So did you see the same exact set of princesses at both locations? We have seen Cinderella at Akershus many times, but have never missed finding Belle there. Still, I have heard that it happens on occasion.

We didn't see Jasmine at Akershush, but the rest of the princesses were the same. We ended up not seeing Belle at all during our trip due to ETwB having very long lines.

It is certainly rare not to have Belle at Akershus, though has been known to happen - you should have still gotten 5 princesses there, I'm shocked that it was downed only 4.

I'm working on our touring plan and trying to decide if we should hit the princess meet and greet or skip it since we'll be doing CRT for breakfast.

DD is probably going to want to see Rapunzel, is the Town Square Meet and Greet the only place she appears?
You never know. We do it early every year so that we can find the ones we didn't get. Never Rapunzel, and rarely but sometimes, Ariel.

We have seen Ariel at CRT every single time we've been there in recent years. I think she's even more common now that Belle is gone from there.

I know I've complained about this before, but it makes no sense to me that they took Belle away from CRT, presumably because she has her own attraction now, yet they left Ariel as a human there, and Ariel now has her own M&G area where she appears as a mermaid. It's total hypocrisy. IMO, having Ariel as a human in one place in the park and having her as a mermaid in another is potentially more confusing to kids than having two Belles in the park, especially because the storyline of ETWB is that you're traveling back in time. There's not reason for her not to appear at CRT.

Sorry, this is my issues place. LOL.

We were lucky to see her three times this trip... Once at ETwB, once at Akershus and once in her blue dress in France. I agree, Thur need to have her at a M&G in her yellow dress, we had to pay for dinner to meet her in the yellow
