    Is there any character dining at the WDW resorts? Can you dine at the resort if you're not staying there? Any special birthday celebration ideas at a WDW resort restaraunt?

    Howdy, fellow Texan!

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    Character dining opportunities are located throughout Walt Disney World Resort and everyone is welcome!  You do not have to stay at a particular Resort hotel to eat at any of the restaurants. Below, are some of the options available:
    Chef Mickey’s (breakfast and dinner) at Disney’s Contemporary Resort 

    ‘Ohana (breakfast only) at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort 

    1900 Park Fare (breakfast and dinner) at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa

    Cape May Cafe (breakfast only) at Disney’s Beach Club Resort 

    Reservations to these restaurants are highly recommended.   You may make an online reservation here or call (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463.
    If you are looking to celebrate a special birthday, I personally like to accompany my character meal experience with a delicious custom bakery cake made just for the birthday boy or girl.  To order a custom bakery cake, please call (407) 827-2253.   To learn more about other ways to make your day extra special, click here.

    I hope you find this information useful.  If I can help you with anything else, please let me know!
    Have a magical trip!
