    We have a WDW trip planned for 2/21. I'm starting to make dining reservations and wondering if there are any character dining experiences open yet? I also need vegan dining options. Thanks!

    Hiya, Wendy! 

    Welcome to planDisney! 

    Character Dining experiences are the cherry on top of a good Walt Disney World Resort vacation! While Walt Disney World is continually moving forward with the phased reopening, not all Character Dining experiences are open, but there are a few great options for you to look into! Chef Mickey’s, Topolino’s Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera, and Garden Grill Restaurant are three experiences that have recently resumed Character Dining (with the proper health and safety guidelines in place). Additionally, Cinderella’s Royal Table and Be Our Guest Restaurant have also had special visitors! Though Cinderella’s Royal Table and Be Our Guest Restaurant are not officially “Character Dining experiences”, you may have a good chance of seeing someone magical while enjoying your meal! 

    Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog as additional Character Dining experiences may become available before your vacation to The Most Magical Place on Earth! 

    As for vegan dining options, Walt Disney World Resort is going to become your new favorite location to dine! Here’s an incredibly informative page you should visit: Guide to Plant-Based Dining. I absolutely love the plant-based options that keep premiering at Walt Disney World! And, you’ll be happy to know, that nearly every Table Service restaurant will be able to accommodate your dietary requests. If you don’t see something suitable on the menu while dining at a Table Service restaurant, simply ask your server for assistance and they’ll be able to help you find something that aligns with your needs. 

    I am sending all of the pixie-dusted happy thoughts to you, Wendy! May magic and joy find you on your adventures! We’d love to hear from you again!
