Setting

Described by Disney as ‘Fairytale dining at Cinderella’s Royal Table’ Auberge de Cendrillon is in Fantasyland.  It’s a beautiful stone building with Cinderella’s carriage to admire and have photos in front of.  I regret not having a better look around really so definitely worth taking the time to have a wander.  Inside there is a fireplace, and paintings telling Cinderella’s story.

Service

We were met by a very friendly castmember, who took our name and then took the arm of the youngest member of our family, who was dressed in her Cinderella outfit and led us to our table.  The castmember serving us was attentive and friendly throughout our meal.

Food

I’ve read several reviews where people say that you eat here for the characters and not for the food.  This really wasn’t the case for us.  We had looked at the menus before we went and thought they looked great.  I was going to order the 25th anniversary menu set menu.  My children are classed as adults now so I had been a bit worried about what they would eat but there really wasn’t any need.  We were given little cheese pastries to start and a Prince’s cocktail each.  Both were delicious.  We had premium meal vouchers which also included a soft drink each.

My eldest daughter began with the king prawns, she really loved the little vegetable stir fry that came with this as well.  She then had the turbot which came in a most beautiful sauce and finished with Cinderella’s dessert.

My youngest daughter tried the soup to start, it was quite sweet and she enjoyed it.  She chose the chicken to follow, and we asked for the sauce to be on the side, which wasn’t a problem at all.   She chose mashed potato to go with this, which was cheesy so she only ate a little.  Again, she chose the Cinderella dessert to finish which she loved.  The pillow was made up of lovely layers of yumminess!

I chose from the 25th menu, which I had really been looking forward to.  The softest scallops I’ve ever eaten and a beautifully cooked piece of beef to follow – I like rare so I was pleased to have it as it came without specifying.  My 25th dessert was delightful!

We ate with a friend and her daughter.  The children’s starter was smoked salmon stuffed with some soft cheese and our youngest diner didn’t really eat this – although she was very distracted by the Princesses.  She chose chicken and pasta for her main, again the sauce came on the side.  She ate all of this and it was a good sized portion.  Our final diner had the vegetarian option of soup and mushroom pasta.

Characters

This was our first visit to ADC but our fourth trip to Disneyland Paris.  Belle is my youngest daughter’s favourite princess and we had yet to meet her so I was really keeping my fingers crossed.  We were bounding as Belle, Cinderella, Rapunzel and Gus so were thrilled on entering to spy Rapunzel and Belle alongside Cinderella.  A dream come true! My twelve year old was absolutely thrilled to finally meet Belle and certainly didn’t feel too old for a big hug! Suzy and Perla were fabulous and we had fabulous interaction because of the Gus bound! Perla ran to get Suzy to show her and they both stood and kissed me!

What a fabulous experience this was.  We were there for two hours, didn’t feel rushed at all and were really pleased with the interaction.
