We did 7 character dinners, yes 7! We hadn't done any dinners before and had the Deluxe dining plan and probably won't do this many again, so why not! We can say that we have done the more popular ones and there were ones that we loved and some, not so much!
Restaurant - Crystal Palace
Location - Magic Kingdom, located on the left side behind Main Street just before you get to Adventureland
Food - We ate the breakfast buffet (fresh fruit, eggs, waffles, cereal, toast, pastries and more!)
Characters - Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, and Tigger
Pros - If you think about how long you would stand in line to meet all 4 characters individually, you might be saving time, plus you get to eat while you wait!
Cons - Lasts an hour, that's a long time for a breakfast with two little ones. We waited 20 minutes, after we were done eating, for Tigger to finally get to our table and they we were out of there!
Tips - Make a reservation before the park opens that day and you get into the park early! No people in front of the castle with you and you feel like you have more time to spend in the park that day. Also, bring your autograph book!
Favorite Memory - I loved seeing my 3 yr old with the characters. You can see the love in her face and how excited she was to meet them! There is nothing better than a momma seeing her baby so happy at Mommy's Happy Place - Disney World!
Would we do it again? - Yes! We liked the food and the location, but next time we will make an earlier reservation!
Any other questions? Just ask!
