    Hello, I wanted to do a character dining experience with my 4 year old and infant. I was thinking Chef Mickeys, Crystal Palace at Magic Kingdom with Winnie the Pooh or Hollywood & Vine. Which one would you recommend? Thanks.

    Hi, Jahaira!  I think it's going to depend on which characters your family prefers.  My family personally lists Crystal Palace as our favorite character meal.  My kids love the characters (usually Winnie the Pooh and friends), and the character interaction has always been really great.  We also like the food selections.

    Also ranking pretty high up there for my girls is Chef Mickey's.  They love the characters, and the buffet there is wonderful.  I think on the times we've been there, the character visits to the table are a little quicker, but still time to snap a picture or two and grab an autograph.

    I don't know if you're considering breakfast as your character meal, but we also really enjoy 'Ohana.  The preplated meal is a favorite with my girls, and they love parading around the restaurant with the characters.

    You can't really go wrong with any of the character meals, but these are our favorites!  I hope you find one your family loves!
