    Hi we have dinner reservarions at Crystal Palce at 8.45pm in Walt Disney World. Will the characters still be there? It's the only time available! Thank you

    Hello, Madaleine!

    When my girls were young, no trip to Walt Disney World was complete without a meal at the Crystal Palace. I mean, really, Piglets and Tiggers and Poohs - oh my!

    You won't have to worry about the characters. There will still be characters in the restaurant, even at that dinner hour. You'll usually see them there right up until the restaurant is closing its doors for the night, so don't even feel rushed. Enjoy your dinner, take your photos, and have a great time.

    When you are finished eating, take your time as you walk down Main Street, U.S.A. back towards the exit of the Magic Kingdom. Some of the most amazing photographs of Cinderella Castle can be taken late in the evening, as the park is closing (or has closed). With waning crowds, you may even be able to get a photo that makes it look like you are the only family left in the park. Now that's magical!

    Enjoy a wonderful visit, Madaleine.
