    Am i able to give characters a letter to hand to someone at my table during a character dining prior to the character arriving to my table?

    Hi Angelica! It sounds like you’ve got something special planned for your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! 

    I’m glad to hear that you’ve booked a Character Dining experience! Those opportunities to meet some of our favorite characters have provided some of our happiest memories from the Walt Disney World Resort! While I’m not sure which Character Dining experience you’ve booked, whether it is in one of the Disney Resort Hotels or one of the Disney Parks, I am sure you are going to love it!

    Characters do tend to make their way around to Guest tables throughout the dining experience! However, because they are very busy playing “host” for many Guests at their respective dining locations, I don’t think the characters would be able to make a special delivery. Rather, you might consider asking the Cast Member at the check-in area if your server might be able to make the special delivery on behalf of the character. Or, if that isn’t an option, perhaps you can “sneak” your special message under a plate or menu.

    Angelica, I hope these ideas are helpful as you continue your planning! Enjoy your Character Dining experience, as well as the exciting surprise that you’re planning!

    Happy Planning!
