    Crystal Palace question.... Website says breakfast (character dining) ends at 10:45. If we book at 10:40, do we only get 5 minutes of characters? Also, does buffet close at 10:45? Thank you

    Hi Julie!

    The Crystal Palace at Disney's Magic Kingdom is one of my favorite restaurants at Walt Disney World! 

    The food selection at this all-you-care-to-eat buffet is amazing and offers something for everyone. Don't worry about meeting the characters because Winnie the Pooh and his friends will make their rounds, ensuring that they spend time with guests at every table, even if your reservation time falls near the end of the breakfast dining window.

    The breakfast ends at 10:45 AM, but that is reflective of the last time that Guests will be seated. The food and characters will remain until the last Guests seated are able to enjoy both.

    When characters make their rounds throughout the restaurant, they start at one end and make their way around in a specified order to make sure that they greet every Guest. If for any reason, you haven't been able to meet one of the characters, just let your server know and they will make sure to take care of you!
