    What are the best Character Dining locations and why? Thanks

    Hi Natalie!

    That is a tough decision! Part of a great meal is meeting your favorite characters, so let me give you a few options for fun meals.

    My first, and favorite, character breakfast is at the Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom. Here, you'll have the chance to meet Pooh and some of his friends. Most often, Eeyore, Piglet, and Tigger come to share your meal as well. The variety of food at the buffet is great. Try the Puffed French Toast - you won't be sorry!

    At dinner time, I have to rave about Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary Resort. When you dine at Chef Mickey's (breakfast or dinner) you'll be joined by characters such as Mickey, Donald, Goofy and Minnie complete in their chef gear! AND, after a huge buffet selection for your dinner, a visit to the dessert buffet is in order... save room!

    And, last but never least, if the Princesses are who you'd like to meet, you can't go wrong with a meal at Cinderella's Royal Table located in her Castle at the Magic Kingdom. If you can swing an early wake up call, its a very special experience to make a reservation for before the park's official opening. You'll have the unique experience of entering the park before most of the other day guests and enjoying a nearly empty stroll down Main St. Be sure to stop in front of the Castle for a family photo too- its a great time for a portrait!

    Hope this helps! Have a great time at Disney World!
