    Hello, We are staying at Disney's All Start Movies Resort August 31- September 6. We wanted to do character dining, girl (10 yrs) and boy (5 yrs). Any reccommendations? Thanks

    Hi Krishna,

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. Character dining at Walt Disney World is such a great way to interact with characters without waiting in line. If you check out the link that I provided, you can see a list of character dining experiences at Walt Disney World. Let me share with you a couple of my favorites that I think would be good for your family.

    If you are planning to go to Disney's Animal Kingdom, I love a meal at Tusker House Restaurant. This buffet offers tastes of both African and American fare, and you can meet Donald Duck and his friends in their safari gear at breakfast, lunch or dinner. Another favorite of my family is Chip 'n' Dale's Harvest Feast at The Garden Grill Restaurant in Epcot. Again available for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, this meal includes vegetables grown right in the Land Pavilion! If you are looking for somewhere outside of a theme park, I enjoy the Best Friends Breakfast with Lilo and Stitch at 'Ohana at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, which includes platters brimming with breakfast favorites. Please do note that all character appearances are subject to change.

    Whichever dining experience you choose, I do suggest that you go ahead and make reservations as soon as you can as character meals are very popular and can book up quickly. You can do so online using the links I provided, or you can call 407-WDW-DINE (407-939-3463).

    I hope that these thoughts are helpful for you, Krishna! Please do let us know if you have any further questions.
