Top 5 Character Dining!

As I’ve said before dining is a big part of the WDW holiday! Even though we don’t travel with young children, we still love character dining, so for this weeks top 5, I bring you my top 5 character dining locations!

  1. Chef Mickeys @ Contemporary Resort
This was the first ever dining experience I had at WDW so it will always hold a special place in my heart. It’s a lively, loud atmosphere! Buffet style, here you can meet the Fab 5, along with Chip n Dale.

  1. O’Hanas @ Polynesian
It can be a little hit or miss depending on where you are seated, but if you time it just right, you can dine and watch Wishes at the same time! Served family style, characters include the Fab 5, Lilo and Stitch.

  1. Cinderellas’ Royal Table @ Magic Kingdom
The chance to dine inside the Castle? Breakfasting with the Princess’? I might not have been completely sold on the breakfast offerings but just being in the castle was enough to put this on my list! Served plated.

  1. Crystal Palace at Magic Kingdom
Fantastic views of the Castle and a brilliant breakfast buffet (try the salmon!). Characters include Pooh and friends.

  1. 1900 Park Fare @ Grand Floridian Resort
A more pocket friendly way to dine with Cinderella, Prince Charming and the Ugly sisters (who are hilarious!), the evening buffet is delicious! I highly recommend breakfast too with Alice, Mad Hatter, Mary Poppins, Pooh and friends, buffet style.

What are your favourite character dining locations?

Until next time,


  1. I had three character dining experiences during my trip in November 2011. I didn't care for Chef Mickeys. I loved Tusker House and Crystal Palace.

  2. Chef Mickeys can definatly be a bit too much atmosphere wise, you really have to be 'in the mood' for it lol!

    Crystal Palace is definatly one of my favourites, especially when you get in before park opening and snap some priceless empty Main Street shots!
