    Sherry from MO Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    We have our tickets to DW and are wanting to book a breakfast with the characters and possibly a lunch. Also, interested in info about the “meal plans”

    Hi Sherry! Thanks for bringing your great questions! At the present time, the delicious Disney Dining Plan is currently not available. However, I encourage you to check back often as an announcement has been made that the dining plan will relaunch at a date to be determined later.

    One of the great joys of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is character dining! There are several character dining opportunities available from which to choose! I’ll provide you with a quick rundown of what’s available for you!

    There are currently two character dining experiences available in the Disney Resorts! First up is Chef Mickey’s at Disney’s Contemporary Resort! This celebration-themed dining experience is available for breakfast and dinner. Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Pluto, and Goofy are all on hand during the meal! Next is Topolino’s Terrace at Disney’s Riviera Resort! Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Daisy make their rounds during breakfast at this restaurant! They wear great outfits all inspired by the European arts!

    Other character dining opportunities are available in the Disney Parks! Donald Duck hosts breakfast, lunch, and dinner at Tusker House at Disney’s Animal Kingdom! Of course, Donald is joined by a few pals! At EPCOT, Chip and Dale can be found, along with a few other friends at Garden Grill Restaurant! And, finally, we conclude our tour of Disney Character Dining at Disney’s Hollywood Studios where friends from Disney Junior host breakfast at Hollywood and Vine! Later in the day, Minnie Mouse and friends take over hosting duties for both lunch and dinner.

    Sherry, the characters are always subject to change, but the ones mentioned above are the “headliners” at each restaurant! Be sure to have your camera ready as the characters will pause long enough for some physically distanced photos with Guests. Also, don’t forget to request an autograph card during your meal!

    All character dining locations are extremely popular! You should make your character dining reservations immediately at 6:00 AM, 60-days prior to your vacation arrival date. I recommend using the My Disney Experience app to make your reservations. Have your credit card nearby as it will be needed to hold your reservation.
