    Ken from RI Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    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!
