    Thinking of getting an annual pass for our trip next Christmas. Do you get discounts on Character meals like Cinderella’s castle?

    Hi there, Marco! Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    As an Annual Passholder myself, I must say that the dining and merchandise discounts are some of my favorite annual pass perks. There are many locations that participate in these discounts and I feel they really add a lot of extra value to my pass.

    While annual pass perks and discounts are always subject to change, I'm happy to report that as of now the discounts do include many character meals, including Cinderella's Royal Table. There is something very special about dining in Cinderella Castle and it is sure to be an experience you will enjoy!

    Character Dining is a great way to meet and interact with multiple characters. Here are a few of my family's favorites. Breakfast at 'Ohana in Disney's Polynesian Village Resort includes visits with Lilo and Stitch and a meal with a Polynesian touch. The Crystal Palace in Magic Kingdom Park is my daughter's top pick since Winnie the Pooh and friends are the hosts. The Garden Grill in Epcot has a couple of my favorite characters, Chip 'n' Dale, and bonus points for this one ... it is a slowly rotating restaurant with ever-changing scenery! But let's be completely honest here; I have enjoyed every Character Dining experience we've had! These are popular spots, so try to reserve your table 180 days in advance.
