    i want to make plans fot dinning with caracters

    Hello Natalia! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. I have good news to share with you as you plan for your January visit! There are some great Disney Character Dining Experiences awaiting you at the Walt Disney World Resort! Let's take a delicious tour of your options!

    Chef Mickey will be returning to Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort beginning on December 16th! Mickey and Minnie have even cooked up a few new menu options for Guests! The "Celebration Pancake" is going to be a favorite for my kids, while my eyes (and stomach) are looking forward to the Loaded Potato-Cheese Casserole! However, I can never get enough Mickey waffles. Chef Mickey's will host Guests for breakfast! Be sure to make your advanced dining reservations 60-days prior to your vacation arrival date! This celebratory breakfast is very popular!

    As we continue our tour of character breakfasts, we arrive at the new Disney's Riviera Resort! Here, Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Daisy host another delicious breakfast for their Guests at Topolino's Terrace! I love this breakfast! Not only are the food and views amazing, but I love seeing the Fabulous Four dressed in their most stylish outfits ever! If you end up loving these European-arts inspired outfits as much as I do, you can visit the gift shop in the main lobby and pick-up a plush of your favorite character (or all four) dressed in their outfits!

    Our next stop happens to be one of my favorites at the Walt Disney World Resort! Be Our Guest Restaurant is situated inside of Beast's Castle at Magic Kingdom Park! While not technically considered to be character dining, the Beast has been known to make appearances through the dining rooms within his castle. The dining rooms include the Grand Ballroom where Belle and Beast shared their famous dance, the Castle Gallery where Belle keeps her treasured books, and the enchanted West Wing where the magical rose can be seen on display. I never miss this restaurant! Be sure to try the "Grey Stuff!" As Lumiere says, "It's delicious!"

    Finally, our tasteful tour arrives to Garden Grill Restaurant in EPCOT! Here Chip 'n' Dale and some other Disney pals, host Guests for lunch and dinner! This is a very unique dining experience as dinners actually revolve around the Living with the Land attraction which is absolutely beautiful! It makes for a very enjoyable dining experience!

    Natalia, all three of these character dining experiences are in high demand! I strongly encourage you to make your reservations at the 60-day advanced dining reservation date! During your dining experience, the characters will parade through the restaurants to wave and greet Guests! You can take pictures with characters in the background as they make their way around! You can make your reservations 60-days prior to your vacation arrival date!  

    Happy (character) dining to you! I hope you have a delicious visit in January!

    Hakuna Matata!  Jonathan G.
