    Hello, we'll be arriving on 10/16 and staying through 10/21. Can you recommend the best character dining (breakfast or dinner) for 7 yr old boys? I want to surprise them. We are first timers to Disney and can hardly wait!

    Hi there Chris,

    There aren't many things my daughter loves more than than dining with her favorite princesses at Disney World.  That being said, boys are a whole different story, and could care less about tiaras and magic wands!

    My top Character Dining Experience for boys are as follows:

    Chef Mickey's: A fun and vibrant buffet style experience that features soothing for everyone...even a make your own sundae bar!  Your little ones will enjoy spending time with Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto, and Donald!  Open for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner.

    'Ohana Best Friends Breakfast:  Aloha!  You're boys will love sharing a family style breakfast amidst the Island-inspired beauty of the Polynesian Resort!  The beloved rascal Stitch, along with pals Lilo, Mickey, and Pluto, will visit your table and there is even a really fun parade in which the boys can participate! Characters only appear at Breakfast!

    The Crystal Palace:  This is among the most popular character experiences.  The buffet features a wide variety of yummy options and the setting is beautiful!  The characters at Crystal Palace are Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore, and Piglet!  Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner.

    Tusker House:  Dine with Safari Donald, Goofy, and Daisy amidst the jungle-inspired backdrop of Disney's Animal Kingdom Park, before heading out for a day of WILD exploration!  Characters appear at Breakfast and Lunch!

    To make reservations up to 180 days in advance, call Disney Dining at (407)WDW-DINE, or visit

    Best Wishes,
