    What are some recommended dining options out the parks for a good character experience?

    Hiya Mollie, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    If you are looking for a Disney Character Dining experience outside the Walt Disney World Theme Parks, you are in luck as there are plenty of great options. For a classic Disney dining experience, Chef Mickey's gets my vote. There is good reason this dining experience is so popular, as there is nothing like dining with the “Big Cheese” himself; Mickey Mouse, and some of his best pals! Adding to this the spectacular location in the heart of Disney’s Contemporary Resort, with monorails gliding by overhead throughout your meal, and you can see why this place scores such rave reviews from Guests.

    Minnie's Beach Bash Breakfast at Cape May Cafe at Disney's Beach Club Resort is also a great way to start your Disney day! Your host for this delicious buffet breakfast is none other than Minnie Mouse and special friends, who come to the party decked out in their finest beachwear.

    If you a looking for a more "royal" experience, 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa plays host to Cinderella's Happily Ever After Dinner. Here you can feast from a delicious dinner buffet as Cinderella, Prince Charming and members of the infamous Stepfamily make appearances.

    Wishing you wonderful Character Dining experiences at Walt Disney World, Mollie!
