    We are staying at the AOA in June. We have purchased the meal plan + dining for our stay. Are there any good place in that area to dine and enjoy the characters? We have small children and would like to stay as close to our resort as possible for dining.

    Hi Stephanie! Lucky you! I saw the new Art of Animation Resort and it looks amazing! There's a fantastic food court there, where you can use both quick service and snack credits. It will take you about 20 minutes to get to the Magic Kingdom by Disney bus from your resort, where you'll find some great character meals nearby:

    - Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom serves up an amazing buffet (breakfast is my favourite) and you'll share it with Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore and Piglet.
    - Next door at the Grand Floridian Resort, 1900 Park Fare is one of our favourites. For dinner, you're joined by Cinderella and Prince Charming, and her step mother and step sisters, who are hilarious! Breakfast has Alice, the Mad Hatter and several others.
    - Breakfast at the Polynesian's 'Ohana feature Lilo and Stitch, and breakfast served up family style. Yummy and fun!
    - Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary is an extremely popular buffet, with Mickey, Goofy, Pluto, Donald and Minnie are usually there. Tons of fun!

    Hope this helps Stephanie!
