Wondering what character dining experience is best for your family? If so, Touring Plans has put together a very informative series of blog posts detailing each of the character meals. For more information on a particular location/experience, click on the link below. Each particular character dining location features a different assortment of characters, food and atmosphere. Our family has found character dining to be a fun way to meet characters that allows you to enjoy a meal in the air-conditioning and not waste valuable park time standing in line (often out in the heat). While some experiences are expensive (Cinderella's Royal Table and Chef Mickey's to name a couple of examples), we've found them to be worth the splurge. Note that many of these experience fill-up quickly, so be sure to make your advanced dining reservation (ADR) well in advance of your trip (up to 180 days out).
