    Hello Everyone! My family and I are planning our trip to WDW this Spring. There are six of us but our kids' ages vary greatly. I have 3 girls (ages 17, 15, and 2) and one boy (age 5). What would be the best/cheapest character dining experience for all?

    Hi Monette,

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I am more than happy to help!

    Since your trip is right around the corner, it's time to get busy booking your dining reservations! With such a wide range of children's ages, I would suggest any of the character meals with Mickey, Minnie and friends. Everyone loves Mickey, regardless of their age! At Chef Mickey's you can enjoy breakfast or dinner with Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto and Donald. Cape May Café at Disney's Beach Club Resort has a great breakfast with Beach Goofy and friends. My family loves Donald's Safari breakfast or lunch at Tusker House Restaurant at Disney's Animal Kingdom. The buffet consists of traditional American fare plus many African inspired dishes. You could also try breakfast at 'Ohana with Lilo and Stitch and friends. This meal is served family style with traditional American favorites plus a little Polynesian influence.

    Breakfast is typically the least expensive meal of the day and dinner is usually the most expensive. Most of the character meals are buffets and therefore have a set price for adults and children. You can check out the approximate prices at

    I hope you and your family have a magical trip and enjoy your special time together! Let us know if we can do anything else to help.
