    How much is it for character Dining?

    Hi Beverly,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It sounds like you might have plans to dine with Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Let the happy dance begin!

    Dining prices can fluctuate depending on the time of year. I always call and speak to a cast member in dining at 407-939-1947 prior to my visits to be sure I know how much the character meals will cost for the exact dates of our stay.

    To give you an idea of the prices, I will share some information from our prior trip in July. Just know that the prices could be slightly different depending on the dates of your visit. Our children were also over 9-years old on our last visit, so they were charged as adults when dining. When we dined at The Crystal Palace, it cost us about $159 for the four of us including the tip. In contrast, our meal at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall cost us closer to $200 for our family of four. So be aware that each character meal is different. 

    Having said this, we adore the character meals. Some of our favorites are Chef Mickey's, The Crystal Palace, Cinderella's Royal Table and Hollywood & Vine. The girls still love getting their autograph books signed and we all appreciate not having to wait in line to see the characters!

    Beverly, I am sending pixie dust your way as you research those prices! And, if you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, consider a dining plan. We love the Disney Dining Plan and the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan.

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
