    Keep up the good work. My question is, I notice that some character dining is only offered for certain meals, such as only lunch, or only dinner. Do you the general time frames those cover? Will 4:30pm work for dinner?

    Hi Matthew,

    The time frames covered by the character meals are usually quite generous, and will allow for early, late and "in between" breakfast, lunches and dinners!  While the actual times meals are offered vary by location, and are subject to change, there are several character meals that usually start serving dinner by 4:30.  Crystal Palace (which features Winnie the Pooh and Friends) starts dinner at 4:00pm on most evenings, for example.  Cinderella's Gala Feast at the Grand Floridian generally starts at 4:30.  Some dinners do start later, however.  Chef Mickey's for example, usually begins at 5:00pm.  The Cast Members at (407) WDW-DINE (939-3463) will gladly help you pick a character meal that is offered at a time that is convenient for your family.  Eating early often helps secure reservations, so it looks like you have a good strategy!

    Have a wonderful vacation!
