    We are planning a trip (first for my son 10 & daughter 6) to WDW 6/13-18/09. Arriving late afternoon on Sat & staying at the Grand Floridian. Want to do a character dinner without going into a park that evening. Which do you suggest?

    Hello Jessica! A character dinner sounds like a great way to begin your vacation! If you would like to dine at one of the resorts, you have two options - both would be very convenient for you.

    Your first option would be dinner at 1900 Park Fare at the Grand Floridian. Cinderella's Happily Ever After Dinner is a buffet meal with a wide selection of food. Typical characters at this meal include Cinderella, Prince Charming, and Cinderella's wicked family members - Lady Tremaine, Anastasia and Drizella. A large organ entertains you with music during your meal.

    The second option is only a short monorail ride away at the Contemporary resort. Chef Mickey's is a really fun meal with Chef Mickey and his friends Minnie, Pluto, Goofy and Donald. This buffet restaurant also has a wide selection of food including a huge dessert bar. My family loves the fun atmosphere of this restaurant. Every now and then you will see a monorail glide by overhead and the character interaction has always been great when we dined here.

    Both meals are a lot of fun, with good food and entertaining characters. I think the choice depends on which characters your children would be most interested in meeting. Enjoy whichever restaurant you choose!
