    Hi Moms! We are planning to take my niece to the Walt Disney World sometime within the next year. She will be a toddler. Which character dining would you recommend, Garden Grill or Crystal Palace?

    Hi Jacqueline!

    Character Dining
    is one of my family's very favorite things to do when visiting Walt Disney World. We have tried them all and there isn't one we wouldn't jump at the chance to do again. They are all fantastic! 

    Garden Grove is so much fun and if you are planning to be at Epcot for the day, it is a perfect place to spend some time with Chip 'n' Dale and friends. I must admit that The Crystal Palace is one of our top places in all of Walt Disney World. I love the location--right in the shadows of Cinderella's Castle. The food is yummy and the characters are some of our favorites (Winnie the Pooh and Pals!) It is one of our first stops anytime we visit the Happiest Place on Earth!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Please let us know how we can assist you as you make plans for your Walt Disney World vacation with your little one.

    Have a magical day!
