    It's our 1st time visiting WDW for our daughter's 4th bday. Since character interactions are ltd, can you tell me some of the best character dining experiences in MK? We're staying at Wilderness lodge, can we still eat at Ohana or other resorts

    Hi! I’m always happy to help a fellow resident of Pennsylvania with their Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning! Especially if it involves character dining for a birthday! We’ve spent many birthday celebrations with some of our favorite characters.

    Guests can book Disney Dining reservations at locations other than their own resort hotel! I have a few recommendations for you! Let’s start with a classic...Chef Mickey’s at Disney’s Contemporary Resort! You can join Mickey and his pals for a celebratory breakfast or dinner! Next, you can head over to the newest resort for breakfast with Mickey and friends. Disney’s Riviera Resort is home to Topolino’s Terrace where the menu is as impressive as the view!

    You can also enjoy character dining in the Disney Parks! Friends from Disney Junior host breakfast at Hollywood and Vine in Disney’s Hollywood Studios! Later in the day, Minnie Mouse takes over hosting duties for lunch and dinner! Over at EPCOT, those mischievous chipmunks, Chip and Dale, host lunch and dinner along with a few other Disney pals at Garden Grill Restaurant! If you want a safari-themed adventure for your daughter’s special day, you can join Donald Duck and his friends for breakfast, lunch, or dinner at Tusker House at Disney’s Animal Kingdom!

    Ashley, I want your little Disney Princess to have a magical birthday! When you arrive at the restaurant, please tell the Cast Member greeting you that you are celebrating your daughter’s birthday! They’ll try to add a little extra Disney magic to the festivities!
