    We are traveling to Disney in March & Im doing my 'hw' for the trip My son is 3 & I would LOVE to do a character meal Im not sure which is best for him. I was looking at the Crystal Pal & was wondering what the dinner show is

    Hi, Brittany!  The Crystal Palace is a wonderful buffet, featuring Winnie the Pooh and some friends (characters are subject to change).  There are items on a kid sized menu that are friendlier to a little kid's palate, or children can enjoy the variety of items on the rest of the buffet.  The interaction is fun, there are opportunities for photos with the characters, and it's a great way to spend a meal.

    When you say "dinner show", I'm not sure if you're talking about the fun interaction at the Crystal Palace, or if you are referring to one of the dinner shows elsewhere.  The first place I think when I hear dinner show at Walt Disney World is the Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue.  This all you can eat homestyle dinner takes place in the middle of a slapstick, vaudeville type variety show.  Audience members may turn up on stage, the jokes are corny but funny, and it's a really fun evening.  

    Another dinner show is the Spirit of Aloha luau.  You'll see traditional Polynesian dancers on stage as you dine on some luau favorites.

    I hope this helps with the homework!
