What You Need to Know About Character Meals at the Walt Disney World Resort
One of the highlights of any Walt Disney World vacation is the opportunity to rub elbows with your favorite Disney characters. Luckily, Disney gives you opportunities all over the theme parks to get some face time with the characters.
One great way to have a relaxing character experience is to plan a character meal. Disney offers many character dining meals that adults and children can enjoy together. What I really mean is that your children will get to see the characters and you will get to relax in a pleasant, air conditioned restaurant while someone waits on you. Yes, this really is the best of all worlds. You get to be the parent hero, your children are happy and you get waited on…does it get any better than this?
At any character meal, the Disney characters will stop by your table to take pictures, sign autographs, hug and interact with your family. Each character stops for a few minutes at each table. The characters are spread out so that you see all of them but you have a few minutes in between each one. This is a great way to get some priceless pictures and most children really enjoy the experience. Of course, you will want to let the littlest ones in your family know what to expect in advance so they aren’t frightened of the characters.
Character dining offerings change and Disney has instituted seasonal pricing. To give you an idea of what to expect here are some ranges from April 2013:
Tusker House Donald’s Safari Breakfast Buffet in Animal Kingdom
Crystal Palace Buffet Breakfast with Pooh and Friends
Cinderella’s Royal Table Dinner with the Disney Princess’s in the Magic Kingdom
Chef Mickey’s with Mickey and Friends at the Contemporary Resort Buffet Dinner
