    Best character dining experience with a 2 year old boy that we can't find in DL?

    Hi there Jennifer,

    All of the dining experiences at Disney World are completely different than those at Disneyland.  If you're looking to meet some unique characters that don't normally appear at the Disneyland Character locations, I think you'll enjoy these suggestions:

    1) Crystal Palace:  This buffet style experience is located inside the Magic Kingdom and features Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, and Eeyore in a fun and whimsical setting.  Each of the beloved characters will make their way to your table for hugs, photos, and autographs!

    2) Hollywood and Vine:  Is your son a Disney Junior fan?  If so, you'll definitely wanna check out the Play 'n' Dine at Hollywood and Vine, located at Hollywood Studios.  You're little one will have a blast meeting with his favorite DIsney Junior pals including  Jake the Neverland Pirate, Handy Manny, and Special Agent Oso!  This lively experience is perfectly tailored toward younger guests and even features singing and dancing!

    3) Chef Mickey's:  Dine amongst the Fab 5 (Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, and Pluto) in this fun and exciting atmosphere while enjoying a delicious and colorful array of buffet style eats!  There's even a kids buffet which offers something yummy for even the pickiest eaters!

    All of these experiences are extremely popular and advanced reservations are usually necessary!  You can reserve your table ONLINE or by calling Disney Dining at (407)WDW-DINE!

    Best Wishes,

    Amanda F.
