Hi Paula and welcome to the DIS!! You will love this place. It is my home away from home!!

Character Dining is one of the best ways to see and meet the characters without having to stand in a long line in the hot weather or miss out due to rain. We love Character Dining.

Depending on who are your favorites and if you have any children, I would suggest going to Chef Mickey's first. You can do breakfast or dinner there. I am not sure about lunch. It is at the Contemporary Resort and is a wonderful place to dine and interact with Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and Donal. They dress in chef's gear and will spend a few moments at your table. The food is pretty good to and it is a buffet.

Our other favorite is the Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom and it to is a buffet. You get to meet Winnie the Pooh and his gang and you don't have to leave the park.

My other personal favorite is O'hanas for breakfast at the Poly Resort. You get a family style breakfast ( not sure on dinner as we have just done breakfast) and you meet Lilo, Stich, Mickey and Pluto! They have fun stuff for the kids to do during your meal.

Of course for princess interaction there is Cinderella's Castle which is a wonderful treat. At breakfast you meet several other princesses to and at dinner you will meet the Fairy GOdmother. You can also do a meal at the Akershus Princess Storybook meal in the Norway Pavillion at Epcot. You get to meet five princess and they do change a bit. Last time we were there was Belle, Jasmine, Pocohontas, Cinderella and Ariel. It was a lovely time.

There are many other options to, but these are my favorites. Oh, the dinner at 1900 Park Faire is wonderful. This is at the Grand Floridian resort and is with Cinderella, Prince Charming and the Stepmother and Step Sisters! It is a riot to see them and your kids can dance with Cinderella and the Prince!

Have fun planning!

Suz

Hello everyone!

Just found this forum after a long time of searching! Great to be here - I have always loved Mickey and Minnie and in total my collection stands at just under 2,000 bits and have never been to a Disneyland park (yet!)

Speak to you all soon!
