    We are visiting Disney World for the first time in October with our 2 boys- ages 7and 1. What are some budget friendly restaurants? Preferably restaurants with character dining?

    Hi Kayla!

    Your boys are going to love Walt Disney World! Dining with the characters is one of the most fun activities to experience. For budget-friendly options, keep in mind that breakfast is generally less expensive than lunch and lunch is less expensive than dinner. If you'd like to experience character dining and keep the cost down, explore booking a breakfast character dining meal. I like to book at in between meal times to try to stretch my meal into two meals. Try booking brunch at Chef Mickey's at 10:00 a.m. This may keep you full for both breakfast and lunch. Another great option is Crystal Palace at Magic Kingdom with Winnie the Pooh and Friends. Book your reservation for 2:00 p.m. for a late lunch/early dinner and you may only need a snack to tide you over at night.

    1900 Park Fare has a great breakfast character dining experience with Mary Poppins, Alice and the Mad Hatter and it's one of the most reasonably priced. 'Ohana at Polynesian for breakfast is another great option (and my kids' favorite), as you can dine with Lilo and Stitch.

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
