    Hey JoAnn!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is right around the corner. You must be so excited!

    You can most certainly make an advance dining reservation for a character dining experience of your choice — even if you are not yet a Disney Resort hotel Guest! You do not need to be a Disney Resort hotel Guest in order to eat at any of the Disney Resort hotels.

    As long as you have a valid reservation associated to your name, and can provide valid identification, you will enjoy standard complimentary parking at the Disney Resort hotel where your character dining experience is taking place.

    JoAnn, I highly recommend Cinderella’s Happily Ever After Dinner at 1900 Park Fare. This is by far our favorite character dining experience located inside a Disney Resort hotel. Cinderella and Prince Charming are eager to welcome you to have a “ball” at this enchanting buffet dinner. During our most recent visit we were greeted by Cinderella, Prince Charming, Lady Tremaine, Drisella, and Anastasia!

    We also love hanging out with Stitch and his friends at the “Best Friends Breakfast featuring Lilo & Stitch” at ‘Ohana located in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. Please note: Character appearances and entertainment are subject to change.

    JoAnn, thank you for visiting the Moms Panel. Please visit us again if you have any other questions.

    Wishing you an Unforgettable Vacation,
