    My Boyfriends Favorite Character is Goofy and his Favorite movie is Lion King. What can I do involving either Goofy or Lion King into his First time Visit?

    Hi again Erin!  Thanks for writing me back with your boyfriend's likes.  If he's a Lion King fan, you will definitely not want to miss the incredible live show at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, The Festival of the Lion King. This is such a great show, and is a must-do for my family every visit. I'm a huge fan of Lion King myself, so I know he will love it!  He may also enjoy having a special african-themed dinner, and there are some really great dining options at Animal Kingdom Lodge such as Boma or Sanaa, or for fine dining, Jiko is amazing!

    For meeting up with Goofy, you might want to consider booking a meal at Chef Mickey's in Disney's Contemporary Resort.  It's a really fun, buffet-style character meal where Goofy and friends meet each guest at their tables for autographs or pictures.  I am not usually a fan of buffet meals, but Chef Mickey's is an exception - their food is great and very diverse and they have an awesome dessert bar!  Advance reservations are a necessity here.  Also, Goofy can be found in all 4 theme parks for meet and greets throughout the day - just check your park times guide when you arrive to find out exactly where and at what times Goofy will be making appearances.

    Erin, I hope this gives you a starting point for planning.  Just let me know if you need any other help!
