Today In Disney History ~ April 28th

Cinderella’s Royal Table is a table service Cinderella themed restaurant for both fine dining and character dining. It has a fantasy like location inside the body of Cinderella Castle and its entrance is located on the backside of the castle. 
The restaurant opened its doors in October 1971 and was named King Stefan’s Banquet Hall after Sleeping Beauty’s father, although it was located within Cinderella Castle. This was due to the fact that Disney Imagineers wanted to give it a regal name, and since Cinderella’s father was unnamed as was Prince Charming’s, it was named after Sleeping Beauty’s. It was not until April 28, 1997, after almost 26 years, that it was renamed to Cinderella’s Royal Table, ending the confusion of its name.
The restaurant features a royal experience: a storybook-like dining room with soaring stone archways, spiraling stone staircases, medieval flags, plush tapestries outfitted in red and purple velvet, and magnificent stained-glass windows that overlook Fantasyland. Each guest will receive a photo with Cinderella herself, when she meets them in the entrance hall, and a princess wand or princely sword and wishing star each, to fantasize the experience. Each table is also visited by Disney royalty. Appearances by Cinderella, her Fairy Godmother, Suzy, Perla (the mice), and other princesses such as Belle, Ariel, Jasmine, and Snow White are expected.
