Disneyland Resort: Best Spots to Dine with Characters

Hey! Pass the Mickey Waffles. Thinking of  dining with Disney characters? It’s a great way to get interactive time and photos with your favorite Disney Characters. Bring your camera and don’t forget your autograph book as there are many up close and personal encounters with Disney Characters. One big perk is booking a Character meal means you won’t have to stand in a long line waiting to see the Character in the Park if you’ve spent time with him or her during breakfast. Also, birthdays are extra special when celebrated with your favorite Disney friends! All the members of our family enjoy these meals and it makes for some memorable moments for sure. Traveling to WDW?  Here is the 411 on Character Dining at Walt Disney World

Here’s a Tip: If your child has never seen the Characters “in person” you might try introducing them slowly. Try watching a parade in the park, where they can see the Characters at a distance before your Character Dining. Some kids freak out their first time while others love them and can’t get enough.

The Disneyland Resort offers reservations at select restaurants. To make reservations, call Disney Dining at: (714) 781-DINE or (714) 781-3463
