    I was wondering what restaurants would be the best/most popular I would like to try character dinning at least once, this is me and my boyfriends 5 years we're very adventurous people and like to try new things and this will be our first visit as adults!


    Often the first consideration is to finding out what characters you want to meet. Since we don't know that, here are my suggestions, by character group;

    Mickey Mouse and Friends
    I have two choices here. For both I recommend breakfast, as these are buffets, and I think breakfast buffets usually work out better since breakfast foods seem more designed for that setting. The choices are Chef Mickey's (in the Contemporary Resort) and Tusker House (in Animal Kingdom Park). The first one is the more traditional, and probably the most locationally convenient. But the second is good for some more interesting breakfast fare and the fun safari costuming.

    The Princesses
    While Cinderella's Royal Table (Magic Kingdom) is the hardest seat to get, you might find that Restaurant Akershus (Epcot) has a bit more menu variety and selection. Still, the first one is something of the "gold standard" in terms of seating demand. I would go with dinner at either.

    There are other locations, with other foods. But these are my four suggestions. If it were me with just with my wife, I would go for Chef Mickey's for breakfast and the Royal Table for dinner. But write me back with more info and I can recommend more options!

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
