    Hello looking forward to planning our first trip to WDW this coming August with my wife and 2 girls who will be 6 and 2 at the time. We are staying off site but I would like some help/options for reserving a character dining meal. Suggestions/options?

    Hi Joe,

    So happy to hear you’ll be visiting Walt Disney World Resort for the first time and a Character Dining experience would be awesome for young Padawans. 

    Located at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, our family favorite’s has always been Chef Mickey’s, where you may be able to meet Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Pluto, Donald Duck and Goofy. American cuisine meals are served buffet style, perfect for picky eaters.

    For your little princesses, I have to recommend you dine with Disney Princesses at Cinderella’s Royal Table, located inside Cinderella Castle.  It truly is a magical Fairytale experience.

    Dining reservations can be made up to 180 days in advance (a must for Cinderella’s Royal Table) either online or by calling our friendly cast members at (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463. Make sure you sign up at My Disney Experience to keep track of all your planning.

    There are several options to choose from and the Character Dining listing will give you all the options available, be it inside a park or at a resort.  Remember that venues inside a park do require valid park admission.

    Please make sure you come back and visit us again at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with any other questions you may have.  That reminds me, I’m late for my reservation at Mos Eisley Cantina...
