    What are the best character meals available for each of the parks. We will be visiting all the parks and Magic Kingdom twice. I am trying to plan ahead for our June 2015 trip. Thanks in advance. I am going to be traveling with children ages 6,5, and 2.

    Hi Austyn! Planning ahead is definitely a great way to get started in preparing for your magical vacation to Walt Disney World. I'm so glad to hear that you are doing just that. Here are my pics for favorite character meals in each park (and a few favorites in the resorts, too).

    In Magic Kingdom, Crystal Palace is a fantastic option. You'll meet Pooh and his friends from the Hundred Acre Wood while dining on a delicious buffet. This is one of the few locations that offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Norway at Epcot also serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and you are able to dine with the princesses. I, personally, prefer this location over Cinderella's Royal Table and sometimes it is easier to get an advance dining reservation for this princess meal. The food is quite delicious with Scandinavian specialties such as the Lingonberry Muffins at breakfast and Kjottkake (Norwegian meatballs) at dinner. When you are at Disney's Hollywood Studios, there is the Play 'n' Dine character breakfast and lunch at Hollywood & Vine featuring Disney Junior favorites, Sofia the First, Doc McStuffins and Jake the Neverland Pirate. This meal does feature kid favorites at their children's buffet that is just their height! Over at Disney's Animal Kingdom, you should definitely try Tusker House for breakfast and lunch where you'll meet Mickey and his pals all dressed up in their safari best! This happens to be one of my kids' favorite meals.

    If you'd like to venture to the resorts for a character meal, I highly recommend 'Ohana at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, where Lilo, Stitch and many of their friends are ready to greet you for breakfast. Last, but certainly not least, is Chef MIckey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort. This lively place is full of fun with Mickey and his pals and is situated right under the monorail that makes for a unique view from many of the tables in the restaurant.

    Have a blast!
