With Disney's "Cinderella" topping the box office in theaters recently, Walt Disney World Resorts found 10 ways kids can enjoy Cinderella-inspired fun every day at its resorts and theme parks. Families can dine, sleep and enjoy the royal treatment at the Magic Kingdom, Downtown Disney and more. Take a look:

1. Dine like royalty at Cinderella’s Royal Table
Meeting Cinderella in her royal castle is a dream come true at Cinderella’s Royal Table, where you can dine with Cinderella and her royal friends. Specializing in feasts fit for royalty, this one-of-a kind dining experience will make you feel like you’re living a fairy tale. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are offered daily. Reservations can be made up to 180 days by visiting DisneyWorld.com/dining.
 
2. Meet Cinderella at Princess Fairytale Hall
Elegantly finished rooms welcome you to the home for visiting royalty in the Magic Kingdom at Princess Fairytale Hall, where you can meet Cinderella and other princesses. Here you can take photos, get royal autographs and hear stories of Disney princesses' many adventures in a spacious gallery adorned with portraits of the princesses, and even catch a glimpse of Cinderella’s famous glass slipper.
 
3. Snap a selfie in front of the Golden Carriage from Disney’s film “Cinderella”
Step in front of the golden carriage used in the production of Walt Disney Studios’ all-new, live-action “Cinderella” to capture a memorable photo at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The Streets of America movie theater facade has rolled out the blue carpet for this special photo opportunity for theme park guests. Decked out in gold leaf and measuring 10 feet tall and 17 feet long, the carriage will be on display through April 11.
 
4. Stay in a Royal Guest Room at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort Riverside
Marvel at the magical details in one of the Royal Guest Rooms at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort. Fit for a prince or princess, the themed rooms immerse you in favorite Disney fairy tales with touches of gold and elegant crystals in the decor, as well as special headboards that create a magical “fireworks” display and special mementos left behind by Disney princesses.
 
5. Get Magical Makeovers at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique
A Fairy Godmother-in-training will transform little princesses with a wave of her magic wand. Girls ages 3-12 can select their hairstyle, makeup, nail color accessories and a Disney princess costume, if they wish, in this enchanted beauty salon. Little princes can even join in on the fun too, as Fairy Godmothers-in-training can transform them into heroic knights. There are two boutique locations to choose from, one inside Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom and one at Downtown Disney inside the World of Disney retail store.
 
6. Pick up your favorite Cinderella-themed merchandise
Pick up some favorite items to tell your Cinderella story, including costume dresses and accessories, a Cinderella Castle playset, dolls and mugs as well as unique items such as a custom phone case at D-Tech on Demand in the Marketplace Co-Op at Downtown Disney Marketplace, a new premium popcorn bucket shaped like Cinderella’s carriage, and a Cinderella-themed retail MagicBand that is coming to Walt Disney World stores this spring.
 
7. Kick off the glass slippers and enjoy a pedicure at Senses Spa
Sit back, relax and choose from signature pedicures such as a 50-minute one that uses organic oils to ease stress and tension at one of the Senses — A Disney Spa locations: either Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort or Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort. You can enhance the rejuvenation session with add-ons such as aromatherapy oil and firming leg treatments, or go big and add on a facial or full body massage.
 
8. Take a stroll through the New Central Plaza area at Magic Kingdom
Feel like a prince or princess yourself by taking a relaxing stroll or making a selfie in the new Magic Kingdom Central Plaza area designed to be reminiscent of castle gardens. The sculpted gardens, charming fountains and new pathways are part of the ongoing transformation surrounding Cinderella Castle in the Magic Kingdom

9. Spend supper with Cinderella at Cinderella’s Happily Ever After Dinner
You’re the honored guest of Cinderella and Prince Charming at this enchanting dinner buffet at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa’s 1900 Park Fare restaurant. The Princess’ storybook friends join in the festivities as you choose from seafood, salad, pasta and beef dishes, representing several “kingdoms” from around the globe, plus kid-friendly options as well.

10. "Wishes" come true every night at Cinderella Castle
Well before the clock strikes midnight, you can watch the nightly dazzling “Wishes” fireworks display at Magic Kingdom. The night sky plays host to a wish-granting fireworks spectacular synchronized to an unforgettable musical score. Brilliant colors wash over Cinderella Castle as bursts of light and pyrotechnic effects take center stage high above the castle.
