When it comes to deciding where to eat at Disney World, you are going to have many choices. One of the most popular things to do is dine with Disney characters. It gives you the chance to meet your favorite Disney characters, get autographs and pictures while eating a meal. There are several options for you and choosing the best character dining at Disney World is not easy!
We have eaten at many of the Disney character dining experiences at Disney World and have come up with five places that what we consider the best character dining at Disney World.
What to Expect with Character Dining
You will have to arrive on time to the restaurant as these meals work on a rotational dining schedule. If you arrive late, you might not be able to be seated until there is a lag to fit you back in.
Disney characters will come to your table while you eat. The only problem with that is that you will need to pay attention to order in which characters make their way to your table.
That way you don’t go to get more food when a character is on their way!
Cost of Disney Character Dining
Character dining at Disney World is one of the most expensive restaurant experiences to have.
This is partly because of the buffet where food is limitless and partly because you are able to meet Disney characters.
If you are planning to do a few character meals, you really should think about getting on the Disney Dining Plan.
This will make the cost of eating meals far less because most Disney character dining is worth the same amount of dining credits as non-character meals.
Getting Disney Character Dining Reservations
When it comes to character dining, you are going to want to make sure you book your meals with Disney characters in advance.
These restaurants tend to book quickly, so as soon as you know which ones you want to eat at, be sure to make reservations.
If you are unable to get the reservations for the places you want to eat, don’t give up.
Check in the system frequently because people change their reservations all the time, even up to days before!
