    Hi again, Just wondering about character dining. We have done many of them but have never tried Mickey's backyard BBQ. Just wondering if this would be a good thing to try? Also any great character dining you would recommend? Thanks

    Hello again Kim!

    I'm so happy to see that you're wanting to try new things each time you visit Walt Disney World with your family!

    Mickey's Backyard BBQ is indeed a fantastic Character Dining Dinner Show to experience. Set in a casual atmosphere with lots of casual foods on the buffet, it's perfect for young families who are out to enjoy a fun evening together. The younger set even have their chance to get out on the dance floor and dance along with their favourite Disney Characters. It's a knee-slapping good time - guaranteed! Do note that the Backyard BBQ happens only on Thursdays and Saturdays from March to December.

    I'm happy to share a few of my other Character Dining favourites and recommendations. Disney Junior Play 'n Dine over at Hollywood & Vine at Disney's Hollywood Studios is a great way to start your day out right. Consider an earlier breakfast reservation in order to make the most of your day at Hollywood Studios. Another long time favourite of mine is 'Ohana's Best Friends Breakfast with Lilo and Stitch. This family-style breakfast happens at 'Ohana in Disney's Polynesian Resort. Rounding out my list of favourites would have to be 1900 Park Fare's Supercalifragilistic Breakfast at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort. Hosted by Mary Poppins, you'll also visit with the zany and hilarious Mad Hatter along with Alice. An expansive buffet is served and sure to please all tastes.

    I hope some of these suggestions are new to you Kim!
    Please feel free to write back any time. It's always a pleasure to hear from you!

    Wishing you a simply Magical time as you plan your next visit to Walt Disney World!
