King Stefan’s Banquet Hall opened on October 1, 1971 – the same day at the Walt Disney World Resort as a whole! The restaurant was located inside of Cinderella’s Castle, however, it was oddly named after Sleeping Beauty’s father. Although Disney designers have not been able to explain why the restaurant was named after King Stefan, it is speculated that this was to give the restaurant a regal name.
