    We are planning a trip to WDW in July with out 4 yr old daughter and 6 yr old son. I'm trying to plan one of the character meals for us. I am just trying to figure out which one they would both enjoy.

    Hi Susan,

    I love character dining!  How great is it to have the characters come to you rather than your waiting in line to see them?  

    When it comes to which character meal, I always selected meals that allowed my children to dine with their favorite characters. One of our favorites was a villain dinner at 1900 Park Fare (sadly, it is no longer offered); it was a perfect match for my family of boys.  However, there are lots of other great options:

    Lilo & Stich: 'Ohana at the Polynesian Resort for breakfast
    Mickey & Friends:  Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary Resort for breakfast & dinner
    Goofy & Friends: Cape May Cafe at the Beach Club Resort for breakfast
    Chip 'n Dale & Friends: Garden Grill at Epcot (PS, this restaurants slowly spins in a circle) for dinner
    Winnie the Pooh & Friends:  The Crystal Palace at the Magic Kingdom for breakfast, lunch, dinner
    Donald Duck & Friends:  Tusker House at the Animal Kingdom for breakfast and lunch
    Disney Junior Characters like Little Einsteins & Jake the Pirate: Hollywood & Vine for breakfast & lunch
    Princesses and/or Mary Poppins/Alice:  1900 Park Fare at the Grand Floridian for breakfast & dinner; Akershus Royal Banquet at Epcot for breakfast, lunch & dinner; Cinderella's Royal Table at the Magic Kingdom for breakfast, lunch & dinner

    Finally, the Garden Grove at the Swan Resort has a rotation of characters for breakfast (weekends) and dinner.

    Happy planning; please let us know if we can help again.
