They don’t get it, and they aren’t going to no matter how much you yammer on about Cinderella’s Royal Table, so let it go for now. You will have to resign yourself to sharing your plans with other Disney friends and family and not dwell on their lack of excitement. If you push it, you may lose them before you even board the Magical Express!
Eat like you mean it. This means, don’t squeeze in every single character meal (especially if you are an adult couple, this just gets weird by the 3rd or 4th one), and don’t feel like you need more than one dining reservation per day. Disney has a ton of dining to choose from, and next time you go you can try new restaurants, but for now try to keep yourself to one table service meal per day. Also, try to coordinate your meals so you are eating quick service meals a bit early or late to avoid crowds. Haters tend to complain about crowds more than anything, so try to mitigate that before it can even become an issue.
