    I would like to know what are the best character dining locations for 3 year olds B,L or D thank you we are coming first week in December

    Hi, Cynthia!  I think this depends on who your three year old's favorite characters are.  My girls always had a great time at Chef Mickey's - any meal.  The atmosphere is fun and vibrant, and there are plenty of food options for even the pickiest palate.  We have had good character interaction here as well, so it was always a must do for my kids.

    If your little one is more of a Pooh fan, you can usually find Pooh and his Pals at the Crystal Palace at the Magic Kingdom.  You can enjoy a buffet for breakfast, lunch, or dinner at the Crystal Palace, and there is even a section of the buffet geared primarily toward kids, with kid friendly options like mac and cheese and chicken nuggets.

    With a princess fan, I love the Princess Storybook Meals at Restaurant Akershus.  I just love the atmosphere here, and we have experienced the best character interaction at this location.  On various visits, we've seen just about every princess here, so you never know who you'll bump into!

    Another family favorite is 'Ohana.  Lilo and Stitch often join Mickey and Minnie for a pre-plated family style breakfast.  It's a good location if you are heading right into the Magic Kingdom or planning a day to enjoy the resorts.  Lively and fun, I find I can often find a table here if I don't get to make my reservations at exactly 180 days in advance.

    December is really the most magical time at the theme parks.  I hope you enjoy every twinkling, sparkling moment!
