    How much time do I need to block off to eat for a table service meal with characters such as Be Our Guest and Royal Banquet Hall?

    Greetings to you, Kara! 

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I am happy to help!

    Dining at Walt Disney World Resort is one of my favorite things to do, and it sounds like you've got some exciting meals planned for your upcoming trip. Character dining definitely takes a little longer since you have to stop eating to give your favorite friends a hug and get a picture taken. And if you've got little ones who will need autographs, then pencil in a little more time for that too. So all in all, I would recommend blocking off about two hours for your character dining reservations. Chances are good that you'll be finished sooner, but you wouldn't want to miss your next Fastpass+ reservation. Better safe than sorry is definitely the best plan!

    I hope this helps you with your planning and if we can answer any other questions for you, just let us know. Have a magical day!
