    Am renting house outside of Disney world, can we still go to the resorts for character meals or other activities (Pirate adventure)? Are there additional charges? Planning trip 9/21-9/30 w/ twins 6yo (B/G) 1st time, are the character meals worth it?

    Hi Theresa - you can absolutely go to the resorts for character meals and the pirate cruises, with no extra fees, even if you don't stay at the resort!  Some of my absolute favorite restaurants are at resorts - 'Ohana at the Polynesian, and Boma/Jiko at the Animal Kingdom Lodge!

    For character meals, I have a few favorites:
    • 'Ohana for breakfast with Lilo and Stitch, Mickey and Pluto
    • The Garden Grill at Epcot with Chip n Dale
    • Chef Mickey at the Contemporary, with Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto, and Donald
    • The Crystal Palace at the Magic Kingdom with Pooh, Tigger, Piglet, and Eeyore
    In my opinion, the character meals are worth it!  It's a great opportunity for the kids to see characters in a more intimate environment.

    Have a great vacation!
