    How long does dinner take at the Crystal Palace?

    Hi there, Amy!

    The Crystal Palace is one of our favorite character meals at Walt Disney World!  Winnie the Pooh and Pals host a practically perfect meal in a lovely setting adjacent to Cinderella Castle inside Magic Kingdom Park.  

    As far as how long your dining experience will take, here are some thoughts...  Once you have been shown to your table, you are free to begin enjoying the buffet.  The experience is "all you can eat," so you are free to stay as long as you like, or leave when you are ready.  If you haven't seen all of the characters by the time you are ready to go, simply let your server know.  He or she will make sure that you visit with that/those character(s) promptly.  Typically, I would say that the experience lasts about an hour for our family.  Regardless, please keep in mind the thoughts I have shared above.  Enjoy your time!

    Magically yours in 2018,
