    A friend was telling me that you can book a Disney experience where you can enter the park before it opens and have breakfast with the characters but I couldn't find anything on that. Do you know of anything like that?

    Hi Tara!

    I'm guessing your friend is talking about Character Dining inside the Parks. Hop on over to the Dining page of the Walt Disney World website to see what is available during your visit. Locate the Dining Experience box towards the top of the page and use the drop down menu to choose Character Dining. You will then see all of the possibilities. You are able to book these experiences in the Parks before the Parks actually open. We actually like to book an early time so we can finish before the Parks open and have plenty of time to get a jump on the day. By the way, my family's very favorite Character Dining spot in any of the Parks is The Crystal Palace at Magic Kingdom. But all of them are amazing! Be sure to make an Advanced Dining Reservation as these popular spots fill up quickly.

    Thanks for stopping by. Please let us know if we can do anything else to help you as you plan. Have a wonderful day!
