    I was looking at booking Crystal Palace for character dining but wasn't sure if the characters had returned for lunch & dinner yet?

    Hello Chloe,

    As the current UK-based Panelist here at planDisney, it truly is my pleasure and delight to welcome you here to our pixie-dusted spot.

    Oh my goodness Chloe!  Your whole family is sure to love dining on some smackerals of food with Winnie the Pooh and all the adorable Hundred-Acre Wood pals at The Crystal Palace within the Magic Kingdom Park.  Plus, I'm so very pleased to share that yes characters do indeed join Guests once again at Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner for an all-you-care-to-enjoy buffet meal at The Crystal Palace.

    Guests are welcome to make Advanced Dining Reservations up to 60 days ahead of time via My Disney Experience.  Additionally, Guests who are staying within a Disney Resorts Collection hotel may make Advanced Dining Reservations 60 days prior to check-in, PLUS for up to a further 10 days into their magical stay. 

    Chloe, I must share with you that my youngest daughter was only little she just loved meeting Winnie the Pooh.  That love for the "Tubby little cubby all stuffed with fluff" has continued over the years, and just recently whilst on holiday at Walt Disney World Resort my now grown-up daughter simply squealed with utter delight when she had the magical opportunity to Meet Winnie the Pooh and Tigger at The Thotful Spot within the Magic Kingdom Park.  It was such a beautiful character interaction and one that just goes to prove that none of us ever truly grows up and that we all stay forever young at heart!

    Please feel free to drop back to me here at planDisney if you should have any further questions concerning your 2023 plans to holiday within the magic of Walt Disney World Resort.

    Have a great Disney day ~ Jane
