Where else but Walt Disney World can you dine with your favorite characters! The popularity of character meals has grown so much that you can eat breakfast, lunch and dinner with the characters.
The meals are served several ways.
- Traditional buffet-style -- available at most of the participating restaurants.
- Family-style -- the server brings large bowls/plates/skillets of food that you serve yourself and pass around the table.
- Pre-plated meals --These meals are served to each guest and each plate includes the same meal.
Most options are all-you-care-to-eat and have one fixed price for the meal. At the family-style and pre-plated meals you need only ask to have seconds of anything.
As a rule, you need to make Advance Reservations for character meals. However, during slow seasons it is sometimes possible to attend a Character Meal without an Advance Reservation. Advance Reservations are available for all character meals and can be arranged by calling 407-WDW-DINE (939-3463).
For all of the Character Meals -- the characters make their way around the room, stopping at each table. You don't have to run after the character or wait in a special line. In fact, the characters generally will not stop for you if you chase them. If you stay seated and them visit you, it lends a great deal of order to the fun.
