    Looking for expert advice on where we should take our 4 yr old girl to experience the character dining? We are leaving last minute 3/1-3/8, we have the DDP and I would like to book as many Character dining experiences as possible. Any suggestions?

    Hi Roiale,

    I just "interviewed" my four year old and am pleased to provide you with his top character dining picks:

    • Play n' Dine at Hollywood Studios gets ranked first.  He is a big Playhouse Disney fan and loved having breakfast (they also have lunch) with some pals from the Little Einsteins, JoJo and Goliath from JoJos Circus.
    • Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary - this is a great place to have dinner after a day at the Magic Kingdom.  You can walk directly from the park or hop on the resort monorail and get off at the first stop.  Mickey, Minnie and Donald and friends entertain guests in what might be the most quintessential Disney Character Meal.
    • Cape May Buffet at the Beach Club has a great breakfast with Minnie, Chip n' Dale and Goofy all decked out in beach ware. 
    • If your daughter likes princesses, and the Castle is booked, try making reservations at 1900 Park Fare at The Grand Floridian or Princess Storybook Dining at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in the Norway Pavilion at Epcot.
    • The Crystal Palace at the Magic Kingdom is the spot for Winnie the Pooh & Friends Fans. 
    • Tusker House at the Animal Kingdom features "Donald's Safari Breakfast" with Donald, Daisy, Goofy and Mickey.

    Whichever dining experiences you select, I strongly recommend making advanced dining reservations as soon as possible, because they tend to fill up quickly.  You can call (407) 939-3463 up to 90 days in advance.  I hope you and your princess have a wonderful vacation!
