    What character dining recommendations would you recommend that would be enjoyable for both an 11 yr old girl and a 6 yr old girl - we will be purchasing the DDP. Thank you so much the board is very informative!

    With the exception of the Play 'n Dine meal at Disney's Hollywood Studios, really any of the character dining experiences would be fine for your girls. (Play 'n Dine has a preschool-age orientation.) I would make your decision on which character meal to enjoy based primarily on the characters and your location in the parks. For example, if your girls are princess fans, then Cinderella's Royal Table or the Princess Storybook meals are the way to go. If they like classic Disney characters, then Chef Mickey's is the class Disney character experience.  If you're in the Magic Kingdom and don't want to leave, then try the Crystal Palace with Winnie the Pooh and friends.

    One other thing to think about is whether your 11-year-old is in a phase where she thinks she's "too old" for character dining. (I have a just-turned-12-year-old in my house, so I'm aware of the challenges of the age. :-)  If the 11-year-old is feeling squeamish about character dining, you might want to select a smaller character dining venue such as the Cape May breakfast buffet at the Beach Club.

    For reservations at any of these meals, contact Disney Dining at 407-WDW-DINE.
