    Hi, we are booked for 14 nights from May 17th. Is there a list that i can refer to of which restaurants hold character dining sessions and which characters may be present at each one? Many thanks

    Hello there, Glynn, and welcome to planDisney!

    Dining at my Happy Place, Walt Disney World Resort, is my number one reason for visiting. These dining experiences can take you to the heart of a galaxy far, far away or even to a rooftop to watch Magic Kingdom Park’s fireworks. And the best spots? The ones where you get to dine with lovable characters like the Disney Princesses or Mickey Mouse and his pals. Let’s get into what some of your options are. 

    Keep in mind that the characters at any of the character dining locations are subject to change, but for the most part, it is pretty consistent. Character dining locations (and the fun characters that will greet you) are the following, in alphabetical order:

    1900 Park Fare at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa (Reopens on April 10, 2024)
    • Breakfast and Dinner with Princess Tiana, Cinderella, Mirabel, and Aladdin

    AN EXTRA GEM: You can begin booking advanced dining reservations up to 60 days before your visit. If you’re staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you can also book reservations for up to 10 days after the arrival date. Be logged in to your Disney account and ready to go at around 5:45 a.m. EST 60 days before your grand adventure to be among the first to grab a seat at a restaurant.

    Glynn, please don’t hesitate to revisit us here at planDisney if you have additional questions about your upcoming holiday. Have a magical time!

    Magic always,
