    Hiya pals, Oh boy are we excited to visit Disney World again. But gwarsh is it hard to find a which character dinning is currently open. Is the are list somewhere? Thanks in advance for making this trip magical.

    Hiya Nicole, welcome back to planDisney!

    I'm thrilled to hEAR you and your cast of characters are planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Your enthusiasm for planning a magical trip is contagious and makes me want to do the Hot Dog Dance! I've already told Mickey to keep an eye out for you at Town Square Theater in Magic Kingdom Park. He and Minnie are also greeting Guests at Adventurers Outpost in Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park.

    Character dining experiences are an excellent way to sit back, relax, and let the characters come to you. I recently enjoyed breakfast with Lilo, Stitch, and friends at 'Ohana at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. We had already finished eating but were waiting for a few more characters to stop by so our time in the "standby queue" was spent enjoying the amazing view and sipping on POG juice.

    I'm pleased as Piglet to share there's a search filter on the Walt Disney World Resort website that allows you to see a list of restaurants that offer character dining experiences. You typically have to view each restaurant's website to see what specific meals offer character dining, but you've got a friend in me so let's see if my magic wand, er, typing fingers can make that information a little easier to access. Character dining is currently offered at the following restaurants/meal times:

    Kindly note that character dining offerings are subject to change at any time so I encourage you to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for updates. Advance reservations for dining can be made online up to 60 days in advance. Disney Resort hotel Guests can book for their entire stay (up to 10 days) 60 days before check-in, which is a significant advantage when trying to book popular character dining experiences.

    Hope to see ya real soon, Nicole!

    Plan magic; planDisney.
