    Has anyone heard if crystal palace breakfast buffet will be coming back soon with characters? We are visiting in October and love that breakfast and Winnie the Pooh.

    Hi Sheri!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney! I'm happy to answer this great question because The Crystal Palace is one of my favorite dining locations in Magic Kingdom (and not just because of its name)! The food options at The Crystal Palace are super tasty and I love that the restaurant offers something for everyone in the family to enjoy.

    As you know, Walt Disney World Resort is still in its phased reopening, which means some experiences are different than they were in the past. Currently, The Crystal Palace is open for lunch and dinner and Character Dining is not available at this location. Unfortunately, we don't have any information about when Winnie The Pooh and his friends will return to The Crystal Palace to celebrate Friendship Day with Guests and we also don't know when breakfast will be available again for Guests to enjoy. I recommend that you keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for the latest announcements and hopefully, you will be able to enjoy breakfast with Winnie The Pooh (and Tigger, too!) during your October vacation!

    Sheri, in the meantime, if The Crystal Palace isn't serving its breakfast buffet in October, you may want to consider visiting Topolino's Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera at Disney's Riviera Resort for breakfast. This beautiful new restaurant offers Breakfast à la Art with Mickey & Friends, where you can enjoy incredible food while seeing Mickey, Minnie, and their friends in adorable, artsy outfits!

    Let us know if you have additional questions as you continue planning. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
