    Hello I am trying to schedule a character lunch or activity and was unaware of the booking dates. Could you help me find an activity for my four year old daughter. Our date is May 17 through May 20th? Your help is greatly appreciated!

    Hi Monty,

    The great thing about Disney is that you can still find magic even if it is not scheduled months in advance. I would keep checking the website for reservations for a character meal. Crystal Palace in Magic Kingdom is one of my favorites. You can also check Hollywood & Vine for a meal with Disney Junior friends. 

    What about a character breakfast? Cape May Cafe has a great breakfast and my favorite is at Tusker House in Animal Kingdom. For dinner, try 1900 Park Fare in the Grand Floridian.

    Also, depending on the size of your party, you might be able to get a walk-up reservation. Try very early or very late for lunch. This will give you the most options.

    As for other character experiences, you can look for FastPass+ options now using your My Disney Experience or check at the kiosks in the parks the day you are touring. Also, many characters are throughout the park so just have a look at the park maps for these meet and greets.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
