    We will be traveling with our 22 month old and want to do lots of character dining. Which ones do you recommend? And do you recommend them for Breakfast or Dinner?


    I think the breakfasts are better with younger children. They are more likely to be awake, excited, and ready to get the most out of the experience. For dinner there is always the chance they are tired from a day at the parks, ready for bed, etc.

    My favorites would include;

    • Chef Mickey's (Contemporary Resort)
    • Donald's Safari Breakfast (Animal Kingdom)
    • Crystal Palace (Magic Kingdom)
    • Hollywood and Vine (Hollywood Studios)
    • 'Ohana (Polynesian)
    If you have a 22 month-old princess in training, you should also consider
    • Restaurant Akershus (Epcot)
    • Cinderella's Royal Table (Magic Kingdom)
    • 1900 Park Fair (Grand Floridian Resort)
    I listed both groups in order of preference, but they are all great!

    I am glad to answer any follow-up questions!

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
