    Ken from RI Asked

    good morning, We are visiting Disney world from May 18th to May 21st and I was wondering if any restaurants in Animal Kingdom, Epcot, or any of the Disney resorts are doing character breakfasts/lunch/dinner during our visit? Thank you!

    Hello, Ken and welcome to planDisney! 

    Ken, I love talking about dining at the Walt Disney World Resort almost as much as I love eating, so I'm very happy you've stopped by. Character meals are a great way to not only enjoy delicious dishes, but snap a few pictures of some familiar faces. 

    Currently the following restaurants are offering a modified character experience: 
    Garden Grill Restaurant at EPCOT 
    Topolino's Terrace- Flavors of the Riviera at Disney's Riviera Resort 
    Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort
    Hollywood & Vine at Disney's Hollywood Studios

    Ken, I encourage you to check for available reservations HERE. If you do not see any availability, I recommend that you continue checking as often as you can until your arrival. While I can not guarantee a table will open up, guests' plans often change, particularly in the days leading up to your desired date. Another option would be to utilize the Mobile Dine Walk-up Availability. Found in the My Disney Experience Mobile App, many restaurants around the Walt Disney World Resort (including some character meals) now offer a walk-up waitlist that you can join through the app. 

    I hope this helps as you are dreaming about dining with Mickey Mouse and friends! Please come on back to planDisney with any additional questions you might have. 

    Wishing you a vacation filled with unforgettable moments!
