    How do I book character dining?

    Hello there, Monica!

    A warm welcome to planDisney and thank you for stopping by with an excellent Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question. I'm thrilled to hear you'll be visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth so soon! As you count down the last few days before your enchanting escape, let's chat about Character Dining experiences at the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Monica, dining with Disney Characters is a must-do for my family on every Disney Parks vacation. Dining reservations can be booked on the Walt Disney World Resort website by navigating to "Make Reservations" under the "Things To Do" tab. You'll select your travel party size, the date, and the time you'd like to search for availability. When the results are displayed, filter by "Character Dining" to view availability for these experiences. Alternatively, you could use the My Disney Experience mobile app to search for availability. Guests can begin making dining reservations, including Character Dining experiences, 60 days in advance, so I encourage you to secure your booking as soon as possible!

    A couple of my family's favorite Character Dining experiences can be found at The Crystal Palace inside Magic Kingdom Park and Garden Grill Restaurant at EPCOT. The Crystal Palace offers a bountiful breakfast buffet amidst Winnie the Pooh and friends, featuring the ultimate sweet breakfast treat: churro Mickey-shaped waffles! At EPCOT, Garden Grill Restaurant is my top choice for dinnertime with farmer Mickey Mouse and pals. The food is wonderfully fresh - and prepared with ingredients grown in the Living with the Land attraction!

    Monica, I hope this information helps you secure a dining reservation with Disney Character friends during your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation. If planDisney can help you with any additional planning questions, please feel free to revisit us anytime! We're all ears.

    See ya real soon,
