Would I be able to book a table for 18.00 ish ? , or is it timed sittings throughout the day. :)

Would I be able to use half board vouchers at face value there , and pay the difference in cash.

:love:

I think they start booking at 18:00 for the evening. I'm not sure if it is the same always but our friends booked for 18:00 and didn't see many of the princesses where as we booked for 18:30 and spent lots of time with Ariel, Belle, Cinderella and Snow White plus the two mice.

I'm sure you can use the vouchers at face value. We had the premium vouchers though.

Auberge is only set up for lunch in low season so a 6pm booking wouldnt be allowed, but i think is open for dinner in the Summer when the parks close late.

When are you going?

Park shuts at 7 so it won't be open for dinner only lunch then. Lunch starts at 12, not sure when last seating is...

Just to mention, the best time at lunch to do Auberge is immediately they open at 12, as the characters start straight away but the restaurant is not immediately full - from about 12.45 onwards it gets full with multiple sittings and it's harder for the characters to get round all the tables. If you do go for a 12 o clock reservation, start queuing outside from about 11.50 as then you will be among the first to have a photo with Cinderella and get into the restaurant for the characters to visit you.

I'm booking luch for 1.30 next time, as i have noticed that on all the trips i have been on that everyone arrives at 12, when we leave Cinderella is all by herself lol.

Really? We've been 3 times and every time the restaurant has been heaving the whole time from about 12.30 onwards. Just goes to show, there's no right or wrong it's just luck! Sorry OP I have to retract my previous post!!:goodvibes

we found it really chaotic when we went in february. we had booked for 12 and arrived at 11.45. We waited outside for 5 mins then another family went in so we followed. We were told to wait to one side in the area where Cinderella stands. More people arrived and were also directed to that area.

Another CM then arrived and was obviously annoyed that we were all standing there - but we had been directed there so tried to make us all queue up at the door but by now it was really busy with a massive queue waiting to get in so there was no where to stand.

saying that though it was worth going early as we got more time with the characters as the restaurant was emptier. One of the mice escorted DD to the table and sat next to her asking the waitress for a menu for herself and was looking at it with DD. She then returned and danced with DD

Maybe it depends when you go, I've always been in low season and it seems everyone books for 12pm lol.

It depends when the park is open till - if the park closes at 7, as it often does in low season, Auberge won't be open for dinner.

We went end Sept which I guess is fairly low season and booked for 12 noon and I have to say I think it was the best thing. It was busy going in and we did have to queue up outside but the CMs made sure you all got decent time with Cinderella as you went in for photos etc - we didn't feel rushed at all. Also, the characters spent more time with DD1 as a result of us being early and they even came around twice as we stayed sooo long in the restaurant - just because food took it's time etc and we finished the wine etc. They were truly lovely with her and spent so much time with her :goodvibes

The restaurant certainly got busier, we found, by 1 pm ish. But it probably does just depend I guess.... If I were going again I'd probably go for the same time.
