    While you should choose the restaurants that are convenient and have characters that you want to meet, remember that all characters are subject to change without notice.   All character dining can be booked up to 90 days in advance at (407)WDW-DINE.   These reservations fill up very quickly, so make your plans as soon as you hit your 90 day window.

    To learn more about character dining, go to and search Character Dining.   You can see a list of characters and find menus.   Have a great time dining with all your Disney Pals!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
