    Good morning! We are planning our 4 and 6 year olds' first Disney trip and would like to know which character breakfasts and other dining experiences we should book and how far in advance we should do so.

    Welcome Kimberly! Thanks for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
    I am glad to hEAR you are considering a Character Dining Experience for your kids’ first Disney vacation. These experiences are absolutely magical, I usually include at least one of them while planning my own vacation.
    Character Dining Experiences are very popular, and reservations can be made up to 180 days prior to your visit. I encourage you to make your reservations as soon as possible. 
    There are many options, inside the theme parks and at some Disney Resort Hotels. Chef Mickey’s is my favorite one for a magical breakfast. Located at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, this restaurant is the right place for meeting Mickey Mouse and friends. Tusker House Restaurant, at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park offers delicious food and a great encounter with Donald Duck and his pals, wearing their cute safari outfits.
    If you want to meet Disney Princesses, Cinderella’s Royal Table at Magic Kingdom Park or Akershus Royal Banquet Hall at Epcot are the perfect options. If you are looking for something different and special, try a delicious breakfast at 'Ohana at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. There you will meet Lilo and Stitch. 
    There are many options but I am sure your family will have a blast at any of them!
    Hope this helps your planning. Please, don’t hesitate to come back if you have further questions.
    Have a magical day!

I am totally a Disney maniac! Since childhood, I have been a big fan of all things Disney, especially the theme parks. I have never visited any other place that gives me the same feeling that I get at the Walt Disney World Resort. You can become a child again there! With so much to explore, I would love to help you plan your next Walt Disney World vacation and discover all the fantasy and magic this special place has to offer. Learn More About Gina
