    Hi, we have dinner reservations at 6:15 at Crystal Palace! We also have tickets to MNSSHP at 7:00 ! Do you know how long dinners usually last and will we miss a lot of the party? Thanks

    After dining for years at WDW, I can tell you that most often our character meals take approximately an hour. Sometimes a little longer, sometimes about 45 minutes. We've been doing these meals with our son since he was two years old. Even then, meals lasted about an hour. We've had meals with just the three of us as well as with extended family so I can tell you how to make the most of your meal.

    1. Arrive early. Get to the Crystal Palace around 6 p.m.
    2. Don't rush. Use meal time to relax and rejuvenate the family.
    3. Make sure that all of the characters stop by your table before departing the restaurant.

    You should be exiting the restaurant shortly after the party officially begins at 7 p.m.

    Enjoy your meal with the Hundred Acre Wood pals!
