    We are staying off property and for our first day of vacation we will not be going to a park. Are there any restaurants we could still go to that have characters for the children to see?

    Hi Beth!

    Whether you are staying on or off property, you will still be able to experience character dining at many of the resorts at Walt Disney World Resort!

    I have provided you a list of some of the available resorts that have character dining in place:

    1900 Park Fare for breakfast and dinner buffets at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.

    Storybook Dining at Artist Point with Snow White for dinner at Disney's Wilderness Lodge.

    Chef Mickey’s for breakfast, lunch and dinner buffet at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.

    ‘Ohana for breakfast at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.

    Cape May Cafe for breakfast at Disney’s Beach Club Resort.

    Trattoria al Forno for breakfast at Disney’s Boardwalk.

    I hope this helps. Have a magical character meal!
