    We have a 5-day parkhopper, but will be in the Orlando area (staying off-property) for 6 full days. We want to get 1 character dining experience in, but want to stay within our budget. What is the best experience for the money?

    Hi Stacy - I'm sure of the ages of your children, but two of the character dining experiences that I'd like to recommend are the Crystal Palace (breakfast, lunch, & dinner - although breakfast and lunch are the better deals) and the Garden Grill (just dinner). 

    Breakfast and lunch at the Crystal Palace are less than $22 at this time and dinner at the Garden Grill is less than $30 (excluding tax and tip, and keep in mind that prices do change).  While dinner at the Garden Grill is more expensive, the food is excellent and worth it, in my option.

    To really save money, eat at the Crystal Palace for a late lunch, and have a light breakfast and dinner.  As a buffet, Crystal Palace definitely has loads of options to fill you up!

    Have a great vacation!
