    hello we are wondering if you can get any pictures with the characters during character dinning?

    Welcome to planDisney, Kimberly!

    We are thrilled to answer your question and help you plan magical memories for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    No visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth is complete without a delicious meal in the company of Disney friends. In my opinion, this is the best way to see and interact with characters. The dining locations currently offering character dining experiences are Chef Mickey’s, Garden Grill Restaurant, Hollywood & Vine, and Topolino’s Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera.

    To promote physical distancing during the current situation, character interactions may look a little different from what we were used to, but certainly not less magical! Although Disney friends will not be coming directly to your table, you will have the opportunity to snap fun selfies as they make appearances during your meal. They will interact and entertain Guests at a safe distance, and you will notice that you will have plenty of time to capture beautiful photos. Please note that character experiences are subject to change without notice.

    Character dining is one of the most popular experiences at the Walt Disney World Resort! Reservations are highly recommended and can be made up to 60 days in advance online or using the My Disney Experience mobile app. If you are unable to book your favorite dining destination, I recommend using the Mobile Dine Walk-up Availability feature of the My Disney Experience app to add your party to the walk-up list at select table-service restaurants including Garden Grill Restaurant, Chef Mickey’s, and Topolini’s Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera. 

    I hope this information is helpful, Kimberly! Come back to visit us if you have additional questions while planning your Disney vacation.

    Best magical wishes,
