    hi i am looking for a dining experience wirh a character for my daughter wondering whatg one is the best to go too and also is there anything other than dining liketea with princesses or something like that?

    Hi, Carolann! Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!

    Character dining is a ton of fun and one of the best ways to meet numerous characters during your trip. My all-time favorite character meal is the Minnie & Friends – Breakfast in the Park at the Plaza Inn! I just can't stop gushing about this meal because I am still stunned at all the different characters we met the last time we dined there. While we were enjoying our breakfast that included so many different options from the buffet, we met Chip, Dale, Rafiki, Max, Captain Hook, Eeyore, Tigger, Winnie the Pooh, Honest John, and, of course, Minnie. Character line ups are always subject to change, but this meal is known for having oodles of characters. Since the Plaza Inn is located in Disneyland Park, you can often get a reservation for slightly before the park opens or any time until 11:00 a.m. What I like to do is to get in the park as early as I'm able and enjoy a few attractions with minimal waits. Then, sit down for our breakfast around 9:30 or 10:00 a.m.

    If you had a character dinner in mind, then you will want to book a reservation at Goofy's Kitchen located in the Disneyland Hotel. This is the only character dinner currently at the Disneyland Resort. You will even be treated to an appearance by Mickey in addition to Goofy and his pals. This meal is also a buffet and has just about every food option a kid could ask for!

    Advanced reservations for both meals are highly recommended and can be made online, on the Disneyland app, or by calling (714) 781-3463. I hope this helps give you some ideas of where to dine on your upcoming trip! Bon appetit!
