    Can you please share where a few of the top choices are for character dining at WDW? I have a 7 girl and 2 y.o boy. And, do we need to make reservations? We are traveling 9/1/13 through 9/7/13. Are these locations on the deluxe dining plan?

    Hi Angela,

    Thank you for submitting your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Character dining is one of the great extras offered at the Walt Disney World Resort! Your children will have
    the opportunity to see their favorite characters up close and personal! The most popular character dining is Cinderella's Royal Table located in the Magic Kingdom. Your daughter will love to see her favorite princess in such an elaborate and elegant setting as CInderella's Castle. She will even get a complimentary portrait with her favorite princess!

     The second most popular character dining is Chef Mickey's located in the Contemporary Resort. Here you will join Mickey Mouse and Friends for a delicious all you care to eat buffet! Be sure to try the Mickey Waffles! They are out of this world! These locations are on the Deluxe Dining Plan and reservations are STRONGLY recommended for all character dining as they tend to sell out quick! You can reservations (up to 180 days in advance) online at or by calling (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463.

    If I can assist you with any other planning question, please feel free to ask!

    See Ya Real Soon!
