    We have stayed at the Floridian, Contemporary & Wilderness Lodge. Now my. daughter wants to stay at Animal Kingdom Lodge & wants to try "Prime Rib." If Minnie is part of the dinner that would be a Huge Plus. THANK YOU!!

    Hi Catherine! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I am sure that you and your daughter will absolutely love staying at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, with its stunning lobby, wonderful atmosphere and the opportunity to see a giraffe or two strolling by!  While Minnie will probably not be stopping by any of the restaurants at your hotel, she can be found at other character dining locations.  Your best chance of meeting both of your daughter's requirements is probably at Chef Mickey's, located at Disney's Contemporary Resort.  Although menu items are subject to change, prime rib is often found at the Chef's Carving Station, as part of the buffet menu for dinner.  Minnie is usually there, along with Chef Mickey!, Pluto, Goofy and Donald (please remember that characters are also subject to change).  It's a really fun experience, and one that my family enjoyed many times.  You can also find the same characters there for breakfast and lunch, but not the prime rib!  Minnie can also be found at Cape May Cafe, for Minnie's Beach Bash Breakfast only, at Disney's Beach Club Resort.  Character dining is a really nice way to meet your favourite Disney characters without having to stand in line, or search for them at any of the theme parks.  All the characters will visit with your table for photos and autographs, making it a really fun experience for the whole family.  Dining reservations are highly recommended, up to 180 days in advance - you can make these online, or by using your My Disney Experience mobile app.

    While you are at Magic Kingdom Park, you can also find Mickey and Minnie at Town Square Theater - where they will greet you for a hug and a photo, and FastPass+ reservations are available.  

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World. ~ Sue
