    What are best character dining experiences for children ages 4 and 6? We are actually only two months away from trip so there are limited options :( What other ways would be good to see characters if we can't get in dining (without enormous wait time)?

    Hi Lauren!

    Hooray for your June vacation! There is still plenty of time to plan some fun with a character dining experience or two. In fact, character dining experiences are my favorite way to interact with our favorite Disney friends and capture some pretty adorable photos. 

    There are a couple of options on our favorite's list that you may just find available still. First, my kiddos adore The Garden Grill. The food is delicious, the characters are sweet, and the setting is fun and keeps the kids entertained in between character visits. Breakfast at 'Ohana is another family favorite and is only a monorail ride away from Magic Kingdom Park. The Tusker House Restaurant at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is also a great (and delicious) experience.

    I hope you find that one of these options will work for you. If there is anything else we are able to assist you with, please let us know.
