    I purchased a character dining experience with my hotel and park tickets package and am wondering how it works?

    Hi April,
    You made a great decision by purchasing a character dining experience with your vacation package!
    I'm thrilled you'll be visiting the Disneyland Resort, especially now that California Adventure is celebrating the grand opening of Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission BREAKOUT! You will love it.
    In terms of your Character dining experience, it's very easy.
    Once you've purchased your vacation package with the Character dining experience as an add-on, all you have to do is wait until the 60 day advance reservation window opens to book a table at one of the restaurants offered as part of this package.
    You can make your reservations online or by calling (714) 781-DINE.
    Make sure you include all members of your party when you make your reservation, even if you have small children who will not be eating from the menu. Cast members need to have an exact count for seating arrangement and planning purposes.
    Finally, don't forget to get a Disney PhotoPass!  Disney PhotoPass Photographers are available at certain Character dining experiences and trust me, you don't want to miss out on the chance of having your magical memories captured in photos.
    Have fun at the Happiest Place on Earth!
