    We will be at Disney 2nd week of june. What is the best character dining for a 2 and 5 yr old boys... thanks

    Hi Brandi,

    You and your family must be getting so excited for your vacation!

    There are several great character dining experiences that I think your boys might enjoy.  Which one you ultimately decide to go with depends on a couple of things: 1)which characters do you think your boys want to see most, and 2)do you prefer to do character dining for breakfast or lunch/dinner?

    I know several people who shy away from character breakfasts, because they think the cost is just too much to pay for eggs.  While I can see their point, character breakfasts are my favorite option.  I find it a great way to start the day.

    Some of our favorite character dining includes:
    • Crystal Palace - located at the Magic Kingdom.  Winnie the Pooh and his friends are the featured characters.  The food is excellent for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
    • Chef Mickey's - located at the Contemporary Resort.  Mickey and friends are the featured characters.  Again, it's a great place for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
    • Hollywood & Vine - located at Hollywood Studios.  If your boys are fans of Playhouse Disney, they'll enjoy meeting characters like Little Einsteins and Handy Manny.  I would probably only go to this restaurant for breakfast.  Lunch isn't horrible - just not my favorite.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
