    We have a trip planned for end of July. I made reservations for princess dinning but wondering if characters show up at other dit down dinning meals even if it's not specifically a character meal.

    Hi Laura,

    Character dining experiences at Disney World are extra magical. I love to have Disney friends pop by for a fun interaction and picture while I am relaxing and eating a fabulous meal.

    Only meals that are specifically listed as Character Dining Experiences will include a meet and greet with a Disney World character. Any other table-service dining experience will not include a character meet and greet and there are no character pop-ins at any locations unless they are specifically listed. I see that you already have a princess dining experience planned but if you are also looking to meet some classic Disney characters, the Garden Grill Restaurant at EPCOT is a delicious option. 

    A great way to meet more characters after your exciting princess dining experience is to download and use the My Disney Experience app to find additional character locations throughout the Disney theme parks. To find characters while at Disney World, click the map icon in your My Disney Experience app (the second icon from the left on the bottom of the app). You will see a drop-down menu at the top of the app. Select the down arrow and filter for "Characters." This will show you a list and map view of all the Disney characters currently offering meet and greets throughout the parks. 

    My favorite character meet-and-greets are found throughout EPCOT's World Showcase because the unique backdrop of each country makes for some fabulous pictures. In the UK area of the World Showcase, you can often find Alice hanging out among the gardens taking photos, and making new friends. In France, Belle can often be found posing for pictures with the beautiful lake as a backdrop. 

    Happy Planning,
