    Hi We are making our first family holiday in December this year so obviously have chosen WDW! Can anyone recommend a character meal for our 11 yo son and 8 yo daughter? Thank you

    Greetings Kay!

    How exciting to be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort in December!  You will love seeing all of the festive Christmas decorations adorning the parks and resorts.

    As a mom of four children, I highly recommend Chef Mickey's for your 11-year-old son and 8-year-old daughter. This fun Character Dining experience is located at Disney's Contemporary Resort and features the Fab 5.  Another one of my family's favorite Character Dining experiences is Best Friends Breakfast featuring Lilo & Stitch at 'Ohana, which is located at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. This tropical dining experience traditionally features Mickey and Pluto as well. Please know that Character appearances are subject to change. 

    Guests may begin booking Advanced Dining Reservations 180 days in advance by calling Disney Dining at (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463, via My Disney Experience app or by going online. 

    I hope this information is helpful in making the best decision for your family.  If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to visit us again. Best wishes for a magical and merry trip, Kay!

    Bon Appétit,
