    Are there character dining experiences ? we are arriving May 7th

    Hello Carol! Thank you so much for popping in to see us here at planDisney!

    Walt Disney World Resort isn't called The Most Magical Place on Earth for nothing!  Everyone loves to plan, plan, plan (me included!) but sometimes we find that our best memories come from the spontaneous and uncontrollable moments! I think you'll find that even though some things may be a little bit different on your trip to the Resort this year, you're still going to feel every bit of the pixie-dusted magic that surrounds you! 

    Character Dining Experiences are one of my family's favorite ways to see our pals up close, and while some dining experiences with characters may not have reopened yet, there are so many that are ready to welcome you for food, fun, and friends! Right now, restaurants such as Chef Mickey's, Garden Grill Restaurant, Hollywood & Vine, Story Book Dining at Artist Point with Snow White, Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera, and Tusker House Restaurant are all available for booking an Advanced Dining Reservation and all have characters coming out to play! 

    As I said before, some things may be a little different than you remember, but the experiences are still just as memorable! While characters are not yet sharing hugs or autographs, they do make their way around the restaurants, interacting with Guests and posing for practically perfect pictures! 

    Since your trip is inching closer by the day, I suggest starting to look for Advanced Dining Reservations now, as your 60-day booking window is already open! If you can't seem to find what you're looking for, don't lose hope! Definitely keep checking all the way until the day of your intended reservation, as many people cancel last minute, opening up a slot just for you and your family! 

    Enjoy the rest of the planning process! Feel free to come back if you need help with anything else before you head out on your magical vacation!

Meet the Panelist: Ashley, Massachusetts

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
