    We are planning to dine at Chef Mickey on my son's birthday. And Crystal Palace the next day. Is there a list of characters which restaurant they will be at.

    Hi Jan,

    You have picked two of the most popular (and fun) character meals on property!  I'm sure your son will be delighted.  My boys love Chef Mickey's and the Crystal Palace.

    Disney states that characters are subject to change without notice, but for as long as I have been going (a long time!) the characters at the Crystal Palace have been Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Piglet and Eeyore.  In my experience it takes about 40-50 minutes for all of the characters to make their way to your table.  There's also a "parade" with the characters and children about every twenty minutes or so that's really cute.

    At Chef Mickey's the characters change for breakfast and dinner.  Again, they are subject to change, but currently at breakfast, you'll find Mickey, Chip, Dale and Goofy and at dinner Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Pluto and Goofy (the fabulous five!)  For dinner, Chef Mickey's has a great "make your own sundae" bar complete with Mickey sprinkles.  The evening is very festive, with many of the patrons visiting for a special occasion.

    If you are interested in ordering a special cake for your son (Disney just released these great pirate cakes that are very reasonable), let the folks know at (407)WDW-DINE, and they will arrange for one to be delivered to your birthday boy!

    I hope your son has a Disney vacation and birthday as magical as he is!
