    I currently have an 11:40 reservation at crystal palace and fast passes for enchanted tales with belle from 11:50-12:50. Do you think we will be able to finish eating and seeing characters in time to get to Enchanted Tales with Belle in time?

    Hi Stephanie!

    The Crystal Palace is one of my family's favorite Character dining experiences. We love to enjoy the tasty food offered on the buffet. Plus, it's so much fun to enjoy a Friendship Day Celebration (or "Friendship Day Celebrashun", as our friends from the Hundred-Acre Wood spell it) with Winnie the Pooh and Tigger too!

    In our experience, lunch at The Crystal Palace takes a little bit of time to enjoy your meal and enjoy all of the Characters meeting with Guests. While Characters are always subject to change, generally four Characters are making their way through the dining room and you will be able to meet all of them while you are enjoying your meal. One of the nice things about Character dining is that you can take a break from the theme parks to enjoy a break and a tasty meal while the Characters come to you. So I would recommend that you allow one hour for your meal to make sure you have plenty of time and you don't feel rushed during your lunch.

    Enchanted Tales with Belle is located in Fantasyland, which isn't too far from Main Street, U.S.A. and The Crystal Palace. However, you do have to go right through the middle of the theme park, which can get very busy with parades, entertainment and crowds. So I recommend that you allow 15 minutes to walk between The Crystal Palace and Enchanted Tales with Belle. In my opinion, I think your FastPass+ reservation is just a little too close to your dining reservation, so I recommend that you attempt to move your FastPass+ reservations a bit later so that you can enjoy both experiences without stress and without rushing either of them.

    T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
