    When is it planned for character dining to return? I’m trying to plan for it or without it.

    Hello Cheryl! I’m glad you brought your question to us! I’ve got great news to share with you! Character dining has already returned to the Most Magical Place on Earth! You can find character dining in the Disney Parks and in some of the hotels in the Disney Resorts Collection!

    Let’s begin in the Disney Parks! At Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Guests at Hollywood and Vine can enjoy breakfast with the stars of Disney Junior! Later, Minnie, along with some familiar friends, assume the hosting duties for lunch and dinner! Over at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Donald Duck gets top “billing” (get it?) at Tusker House during breakfast, lunch, and dinner! Of course, Donald is joined by some Disney pals who are ready for a dining safari! At EPCOT, Guests at Garden Grill will see the mischievous Chip and Dale, and a few other fun characters, during lunch and dinner!

    Now, we’ll take our character dining tour to the hotels in the Disney Resorts Collection! Chef Mickey’s at Disney’s Contemporary Resort finds Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, and Pluto all busy keeping Guests smiling happy during breakfast or dinner! Over at Disney’s Riviera Resort, the newest resort hotel, Guests can enjoy breakfast with Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Daisy at Topolino’s Terrace

    Cheryl, in addition to the dining locations mentioned above, there are two other special dining experiences that I want to recommend! While not technically considered “character dining” the two castles located in Magic Kingdom host dining experiences during which Disney royalty might appear! Cinderella has been known to greet Guests of her castle at Cinderella’s Royal Table. Additionally, Beast has been known to roam the rooms of his castle at Be Our Guest Restaurant!
