    Where (and do) the following give character meals? And if so, what time of day? And what's the dress code? Ariel Tinkerbell Rafiki (Monkey from The Lion King) Belle and Beast

    Hi, Kelly! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you so much for bringing us this great question!

    Disney Character meals are a great way to enjoy some delicious food AND meet your favorite Disney Characters without waiting in a line- HECK they even come to YOU! As for Ariel and Belle, you can meet both at either at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Epcot or Cinderella’s Royal Table in Magic Kingdom Park. Although not technically a “Character Meal”, you can meet The Beast at his castle during dinner at Be Our Guest Restaurant. He doesn’t go from table to table, but you can usually stop by for a quick hello and a photo! At this time, there are no Character meals with Tinkerbell, but you can visit her in Magic Kingdom Park. You can visit Rafiki over at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, but he also does not have a Character Meal. When you download the My Disney Experience mobile app, you can use the Disney Character locator to find the times and locations of your favorite friends!

    As for dress code for Disney Character meals, regular Disney Theme Park attire is just fine! Many children like to dress-up as their favorite princesses or visit a Fairy Godmother-in-training at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique before a Disney Princess Character Meal, which makes for some great photos!

    Have a magical time and please visit us again real soon!
