    Hi Lindsey!Considering dining at Crystal Palace this Fall.It's buffet style right?Is it"all you can eat" and are all the buffets at Disney the same way?Can Pooh Bear&his friends be met elsewhere or is this meal the best way?Thanks!

    Well, Hello there, Mary! Sounds like you have a rumbly in your tumbly just like Pooh Bear! Yes, the Crystal Palace is a light, airy, and delicious place for an “all you care to enjoy” meal, as Walt Disney World Resort puts it! (You're right; All buffet meals are all-you-care-to-enjoy!)

    The thing I like most about Crystal Palace for a family dinner is there is something for everyone. Kid’s buffet sections boast veggies, mac n cheese and some of the most delicious nuggets I’ve ever eaten (anyone can grab food from here!). The big buffet has roasted veggies, several kinds of meats, a HUGE salad and chilled section, fruits, breads and more. I always get the roast beef; it’s so good! Top that meal off with a soft serve machine with toppings, and my family has full bellies and happy smiles. Pooh, Piglet, Tigger and Eeyore work their way around the room to every table, pausing for photos, autographs and more. I love not having to wait in line for all of these characters - it’s a huge time saver to have at least one character dinner at Walt Disney World Resort!

    If your family doesn’t like buffet dining (come hungry to get your money’s worth!), you can also try your luck near The Adventures of Winnie the Pooh Attraction and the Playful Spot, where you will often see Tigger and Pooh waiting to share more hugs and greet you. The lines here can sometimes be long, so that’s another reason to hit up The Crystal Palace if Pooh and Friends are high on your list. Make sure to ride Pooh’s attraction; the standby queue is LOTS of fun for kids. There are tons of interactive games and plenty of shade for adults. I hope you get Pooh’s autograph, and give Eeyore a hug for me! ~ Lindsey P.
