    This is our first trip to Disney World.I have two boys, ages 4 and 6. What are the best character meal locations for boys? Do I need to reserve in advance? We are purchasing the basic meal plan, and hope to do a character meal each of our 4 day stay.

    Hi Karen,

    I have two boys too!  Mine are 5 and 7 and both think no trip to Disney is complete without a character meal, or two (or three)!  My kids' current favorite dining spots include:

    • Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary Resort
    • Donald's Safari Breakfast at Tusker House at Animal Kingdom
    • The Garden Grille at Epcot
    • Cape May Cafe (for breakfast)

    As you can imagine, character meals are very popular and often completely booked.  I strongly recommend making advanced dining reservations to ensure that you secure the times and locations  your boys are most interested in by calling 407-WDW-DINE (939-3463) up to 180 days before your trip.

    Have a magical vacation!
