    We will be vacationing in September. I see you have daughters, my daughter will be 4 in October. I would like to book some special dinners for her. Which character dinners are the "must see" events for girls?


    I will list several here, but know that you should not be disappointed if you don't get to the all. Doing all of them in one trip would leave you broke and double your weight! I have grouped them by experience, in order of preference.

    Princess dining
    • Restaurant Akershus
    • Cinderella's Royal Table
    • 1900 Park Fare

    While Cinderella's Royal Table is the hardest table to get in all of Walt Disney World, I think that the princess experience at Akershus is better because it has more variety.

    Mickey Mouse and other Cartoon Characters

    • Mickey's Backyard BBQ
    • Chef Mickey's
    • Donald's Safari Breakfast
    • Hollywood and Vine

    The first two are destination experiences, the second two are ideal if you're in their respective parks.

    Overall Fun time

    • Whispering Canyon Cafe
    • 50s Prime Time Cafe
    • 'Ohana
    • Biergarten
    • Spirit of Aloha
    • Hoop Dee Doo Review

    Some of these experiences are fun for the obvious on-stage entertainment. Others are a joy for the general ambiance.

    Send me a follow up question with more information on what she likes if you want me to shorten the list further.

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
