    when can i book the character dinning


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    Character dining is such a wonderful experience, and not just for kids! Getting to meet so many of your heroes, whether it is Mickey Mouse and his friends, or a parade of princesses, the experience makes for lifetime memories. 

    Dining reservations, including those for character meals, can be made by anyone up to 60 days in advance of the day you plan to dine. If you happen to be staying at a Disney Resort Hotel, you can make reservations for up to 10 days of your vacation, meaning you could be booking some meals as far in advance as 70 days out!  

    But what character meal should you try out? There are a lot of great choices, but here are a few of my favorites.

    Mickey Mouse and Friends
    Chef Mickey's
    Tusker House

    Disney Princesses
    Cinderella's Royal Table
    Akershus Royal Banquet Hall

    There are many other great venues to dine with characters at Walt Disney World. Don't think of these as your only choices, just the ones that my kids request every time we visit!

    Dining reservations can start to be made beginning at around 5:45 am on that day, 60 days out from your vacation. If you are looking to make a reservation for a particularly popular meal, you may want to consider calling right at that time.

    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
