    8 year old daughter's 1st trip to Disney will be this October. What table service meals with characters are the best ones to choose from as I'd like to do at least one of those if not more than one. And what other dinner options do you recommend?

    Hi Jennifer! 

    Your little princess is going to have an amazing time at Walt Disney World in October! My daughter and I take a girl's trip every fall and I have a few tips on the best character dining experiences! 

    One of my favorite character dining experiences, Crystal Palace with Winnie the Pooh and friends, is returning on September 20. This character dining experience at Magic Kingdom is one of my favorites because the food is great and the characters are so much fun! There are a variety of options on the all-you-care-to-eat buffet, so even picky eaters will find something they like.

    Another one of my daughter's favorites, ‘Ohana Best Friends Breakfast featuring Lilo and Stitch, is returning on September 27, 2022. Located at Disney's Polynesian Resort, this breakfast character dining experience is only a short monorail ride away from Magic Kingdom.

    For dinner, I think that Garden Grill at EPCOT is a wonderful choice. You can dine with Chip and Dale and enjoy a yummy family-style meal.

    There is so much wonderful food at Walt Disney World that I have a variety of suggestions for you! I will give you my favorite dinner options at each of the parks:

    Magic Kingdom: Tony's Town Square
    Hollywood Studios: Mama Melrose Ristorante Italiano
    EPCOT: La Hacienda de San Angel
    Animal Kingdom: Tusker House

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
