Dining at Auberge de Cendrillon with the Disneyland Paris Princesses review – October 2018
Auberge de Cendrillon is the only restaurant within Disneyland Paris you can dine alongside the Disneyland Paris Princesses. AUB is open from 8 am for breakfast and from noon for dinner. AUB is located in the heart of Fantasyland and within one of the most picturesque buildings in this land, Cinderellas glass carriage is inside the restaurant’s courtyard. The decor of this restaurant does take your breath away and the most decadent treat for your little Prince and princesses and let’s be honest the princess within us all.
Disneyland Paris Princess Dining Experience : Inside Auberge De Cendrillion
On arrival, we were warmly welcomed by our host and guided through the stunning restaurant to our table. the entire restaurant is Cinderella themed with Large tapestries displaying key scenes from the classic film. The theming of the restaurant is almost like a fairy tale / medieval banquet hall. The hosts are especially helpful, English speaking and really do enhance your experience.
Tip: Request to be sited within the main part of the restaurant to see more of the princesses as they float throughout.
Disneyland Paris Princess Dining Experience : Princesses within the restaurant
during our meal, the princesses we met were Ariel, Belle, and Cinderella along with Cinders mice Perla and Suzie. you are almost guaranteed to see Cinderella and her mice but more rare princesses like Rapunzel, Tiana, Merida, and even Prince Charming do attend from time to time. Each princess took the time to chat with both me and my daughter, sign our autograph books and pose for endless pictures. The princesses are interactive and do not rush off or make you feel rushed at all. What I liked is how the princesses host maneuvers the princesses around the restaurant so no 1 table is left without a princess or disturbed too often as you eat your meal.
Disneyland Paris Princess Dining Experience :The French Fine Dining – Adult Menu
I love my food but I wasn’t overly impressed with the food served but the experience outweighs the food for me anyway. I chose wild prawns with saffron butter as my starter which was very very messy due to the prawns having their shells on which I felt hindered my interaction with Belle as she arrived just as I finished and I was not provided with a finger bowl of water to wash my fishy-smelling fingers and I dint want to make her wait while I ran off to wash my hands in the toilets!! (First world problems I know!!) For my main, I had Chicken Fricassee with morel mushrooms which were very tasty but the chicken was on the bone which I hate but the dessert was delicious and the best part of the meal for me.

Gracie was not overly impressed with her food either but she is VERY fussy. she chose the amuse bouche to start followed by the chicken breast with vegetables and a creamy tomato sauce which was surprisingly dry but again the desert made up for this a white chocolate glass slipper stuffed with a chocolate mouse. As you can tell we have a very sweet tooth in our house!!
Tip: you can book up to 60 days prior to your arrival which I highly recommend to get a time that suits you and to avoid disappointment.
Disneyland Paris Princess Dining Experience : Our experience
the whole experience cost 45 euros for Gracie and 77 euros for myself which is the most expensive restaurant in the park although you can eat her inclusive if you have a premium dining plan. If this experience is within your budget as it is NOT cheap I do 100% recommend as for me we got to meet 3 princesses whom if we had queued up to meet within the Princess pavilion this would have seriously eaten into our time within the park itself. we stayed at the restaurant for roughly 90 mins which could easily have been spent queuing to meet just 1 princess. The downside is you have no idea which princess will be inside until you are sat down, but I genuinely loved every minute.
