    we are goning to be in epcot for my daughter 8th birthday I want her to have a character lunch or dinner where in epcot can we go on a tight budget?

    Hi Lorena,

    What a fantastic way for your daughter to spend her Birthday, if you haven't done so already click HERE to register her for a free Birthday gift from Disney World such as a park ticket, gift card or special fast pass.

    There are two character dining restaurants in Epcot, you can either dine with the Princesses at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Norway which starts at about $29 per adult and $18 per child (3-9) for breakfast. Or the Garden Grill with Mickey, Pluto, Chip & Dale (characters subject to change) costing about $29 per adult and $14 per child (3-9) for dinner. Both of these options are quite expensive and as you say you're on a tight budget I have one more suggestion for you. I know you said you'd prefer lunch or dinner but there is a great breakfast over at Cape May Cafe. This is located within walking distance of Epcot at the Beach Club Resort. It is quite a bit cheaper than the other restaurants, costing about $19 per adult and $11 per child (3-9) and the characters that are often there are Minnie, Goofy and Donald. It serves breakfast from about 7.30am to 11am and what I would suggest you do is book the latest breakfast reservation possible. As they serve sausages, bacon, eggs, breakfast pizza, potatoes, doughnuts, pastries etc you could make this an early lunch at a cheaper price. Doing this would also allow you to ride your daughters favourite attractions at Epcot early and pick up some fast passes to use later. It literally is only a 5 - 10 minute walk via the International Gateway to get to the Beach Club and you can return to the park afterwards. You can book this up to 90 days in advance by calling 407-939-3463

    Hope that helps and your daughter has a fantastic Birthday trip,
