    Our daughter will be 4 1/2 when we visit Disney over Labor Day. Last year she was very, very timid around the characters. Which top 3 character events/dining would you most recommend & top 3 you'd least recommend? Thanx!

    Hi there, Alysha!

    I have a couple of ideas to help make your daughter's experience with Characters fabulous!

    I'm thinking that it would be a good idea for you to take her to a Princess dining experience first because she'll actually be able to have a conversation with those Characters. I would recommend trying to get an Advanced Dining Reservation for dinner at 1900 Park Fare located at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa or breakfast, lunch or dinner at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall located in Epcot. That would be a great way to start her off!

    Next, I would take her to watch the Disney Junior - Live on Stage! performance at Disney's Hollywood Studios. I think she'll just love seeing some of her Disney Junior friends on stage and then you could go to either a late breakfast or lunch at Hollywood & Vine. Honestly, I don't have any least favorite Character Meals because I've never been to one that my family didn't absolutely love! It really depends on which Characters you want to meet!

    Also, please keep in mind that reservations for Table Service restaurants are accepted 180 days in advance. With your trip coming up right around the corner, you'll want to check availability often as Guests do cancel at the last minute pretty regularly. You can make reservations online or by calling 407.WDW.DINE [939.3463].

    I sure hope this helps, Alysha! Let me know if I can help with any other question you have!

    Have a Pixie Dusted vacation!
