would you do Aubergn if...

You had a easi access pass?? Anyone i know who has done it said its worth it to meet the princess without having to que in the pavallion. But will have an easi access pass for dd1 so wont have to spend hours queing in there. This is the first time we will have the pass as i always felt between us we could manage. We share the carrying of her in ques. But this time ill be on my own and she is nearly 8 and ive been warned about lifting her as i put my back out 3 times this winter alone!!!. So is the experience worth the huge cost or are they better value places to eat instead.

For the experience alone i would eat at the restaurant. The interaction would be far better. I can comment on queing at the pavillion, we never did as we <3 having dinner with the princesses instead

Will your pass not allow you to use it at the pavilion? We used one in Novemeber and queued in an alternative line, for about 15 minutes. I believe you could come back every 2 hours or something. Is that an option?

ETA: I think I read your question wrong...lol...you seem to be able ti use your pass...so I'd say no, I'd just keep trying with the pavilion.

We have been to the pavillion and it is lovely. They chatted to the girls and there was plenty hugs and of cource the photo.
We might nt bother with the meal and just use the easi access pass at the pavillion instead. I knoe they would enjoy the meal but not sure its worth the money!!

With your pass you can visit the pavilion every hour that it's open

I have had the pass twice and still ate at the Auburge. I highly recommend it as you also get to meet one of the prince's and Cinderellas mice and if your lucky catch one of the princess's and prince's dance. You also get more character interaction in the Auburge and its much more relaxed.

You can go every two hours. They are really strict on this. I've seen them make people leave that came too early.

As lilacgems has said, I'd still do Auberge too. Much more relaxed, more than one princess, better interaction.

Oh thats really good that they let you que every 2h . Tho we would prob only que once or twice a day. Im still not decided what we will do. We have met the mice before and they wouldnt be that bothered about the prince tbh. I dont mind paying the child price as the menu is very good but €65 for a adult menu when i wont eat a thing off it is what making question is it really worth it. Anyway going to keep the booking for now and decide.

If you can imagine, my DS (age 10) agreed to go to the Princess pavilion using his pass, and he really liked it (he met Ariel, and she just swooned over him)...bough he was up for going back, we never had a chance to. Since he'd have no interest in the fancy meal, the dinner just isn't an option for us.
But having the use of his pass surely makes it much more pleasant for him.

I would love to do auberge with dd4 but like yourself the menu just doesnt appeal, and its to expensive to pick over
Have you thought about the sunday brunch, you may get a nice theme and and its buffet so everyone should be happy

im very iffy about the auberge. when i first brought my dd i felt it was worth the money. over the years they have cut down on so much with prices only rising i can't help but feel ripped off.

we didn't go last time as my dd said she didn't like the menu. this time round the menu suits so she would like to go again. i still haven't really made up my mind.
