    What are the designs for the speciality character drink cups at the Garden Grill??

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Michele!

    Garden Grill Restaurant is one of my daughter’s favorite meals at the Walt Disney World Resort. The “SQUEEEEE” factor is very high during this dining experience – Chip n’ Dale are so cute and huggable, farmer Mickey in his overalls is just too perfect, and Pluto is his super-fun, pup-tastic self. SO many great photo ops, character interactions…and the food is totally yummy too.

    The Specialty Character Drink comes in a souvenir cup with a clip-on character glow cube. The cup itself is a standard-shaped plastic drink cup with a lid, and the design of the cup is based on Disney characters. I’ve seen Disney Fairies, Toy Story, and Cars characters on this cup in the past. I checked in with a Cast Member, who told me that the cup design and clip-on glow light character rotates, so it will be a pixie-dusted surprise when you arrive.

    Michele, you’ll be welcome to ask about the cup design and available clip-on character, and if it’s not a character you’re interested in collecting, you may decline the cup. I had the opposite experience a few years ago at the Bon Voyage Adventure Breakfast at Trattoria al Forno: my kiddos received a clip-on Pascal glow light, and I was able to purchase an extra one for myself because it was just so perfect.

    Enjoy your meal at Garden Grill Restaurant! One of the things I love about this location is that it (very slowly) rotates through sections of the Living With the Land attraction. If you’d like to get a great view, ask to sit on the lower level of the restaurant when you arrive to check-in. Another great thing about dining there is that some of the ingredients are grown right inside The Land pavilion. Talk about locally grown!

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
