Other Places to Meet Disney World Characters

Below, we share a few other places to meet characters at Disney World, including character meals, resorts, seasonal parties, and rare character sightings.

Character Dining Experiences

Whether you’re looking to enjoy breakfast with Winnie the Pooh and Friends at Crystal Palace or dine with princesses at Cinderella’s Royal Table, there are plenty of character dining restaurants at Walt Disney World.

So many that we’ve put them all together in a separate guide. It’s important to note that all character restaurants require advanced dining reservations. But we do believe that planning at least one or two character meals is a must for anyone interested in meeting characters.

Character dining allows everyone to have a fun interaction with their favorite Disney characters in a more relaxed setting. However, character meals are an investment in time, and they can be costly.

Our character dining guide will help you discern which character meal will work best for your group. We recommend planning a meal based on which characters you want to meet.
