There are character meal opportunities everywhere at Disney World (just about a dozen, in fact) and they are all different. If you have limited time on your vacation, you will likely only be able to enjoy a couple of them. How to choose the best character meals for your family? I break each one down below to help with your planning.
Disney divides their restaurants into two categories – Table Service and Quick Service. Table Service restaurants are generally sit down restaurants with waiter/waitress service at your table. Quick Service is generally serve yourself or counter ordering.
Disneyland and California Adventure have some excellent, amazingly themed Table Service restaurants located all over the parks. To make your vacation planning easier, I’ve organized and detailed out the Table Service options available for you in the table below. Remember – make reservations at these locations as soon as your window opens (60 days prior to your trip)!
WDW Academy Tip: Try to plan where you will be each day around meal times so you will be in the general area of your desired restaurant to avoid unnecessary crisscrossing the park – which is a waste of value time.
There are five character meal opportunities in Disneyland. I believe at least one or two character meals are part of the essential Disney experience! I’ve outlined information about each character meal, menu links, and pricing below. Remember to plan ahead and make reservations!
