    Hello!! I am going to Dinning Character Experiences, Buffet Style, but It seems that there are different types of buffet... Buffet, Full Buffet, Family Style Meal and All you care to enjoy, Im in Disney Dinning plane, which one will I get? thank u!!

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Daniela!

    My family loves using the Disney Dining Plan when we're on vacation at Walt Disney World Resort, and I think that booking a reservation for a Character Dining experience for your family is a great use of those Dining Plan credits. Here is a list of all of the restaurants with Character Dining experiences that accept the Disney Dining Plan at the moment, so let's talk about the differences between the styles of dining.

    Let's start with a buffet, which is exactly what it sounds like! Your party will be brought to your table and a server will bring you drinks, but you'll be able to head up to the buffet and choose whatever you want to eat from a wide selection of delicious dishes. Character Dining experiences with buffets include places like The Crystal Palace, 1900 Park Fare and a handful more. A Family Style meal is like a buffet, where the food comes to you! When you dine somewhere like The Garden Grill, for example, your server will bring a platter or skillet to your table for your family to share. If you finish it or you want more of any specific thing (we always want more Macaroni & Cheese at The Garden Grill!), you can ask your server to bring you more. That's what All-You-Care-To-Enjoy means, and it covers both buffets and family style meals!

    Have a magical day, Daniela!
