    What if i make a reservation for a character dining breakfast at 955 at Epcot but we didn’t want to visit that park? Can we only eat for our reservation then leave? Is there a catch?

    Hi Taylor!

    Character dining at Walt Disney World is a great way to get some quality time with some of your favorite pals without having to visit them in the parks, plus you get a delicious meal! 

    Character dining restaurants that are located inside of a park require theme park admission since you are actually entering the park to eat.  If you are planning on dining in one park, but visiting another park that same day, you'll need to have a park hopper ticket to do so.  If you do not have a park hopper ticket or are not planning on visiting another park that day, you'll need to make a character dining reservation that is outside of a park.

    One of my favorite character dining restaurants for breakfast that is outside of a park is the Best Friends Breakfast featuring Lilo & Stitch at 'Ohana located in Disney's Polynesian Village Resort.  Not only are Lilo & Stitch greeting guests, but you'll also see Mickey and Pluto.  This is an all-you-care-to-enjoy meal served family style where the food is brought to your table.  My favorite part are the Stitch waffles.  Yum!  *Characters are subject to change.

    Please stop back by if you have any additional vacation planning questions or if you'd like more restaurant recommendations.

    Have a magical day!
