Must See Character Dining!


I am only going to be in WDW with my 4 year old son for 3 days before we head out on a Disney cruise!! This the first time to WDW and cruising for both of us. Can anyone provide suggestions on where I must take my son for a great character dining experience?

Thank you so much!

Chef Mickey's for Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald and they sing and have a parade thru the resturant so there's a little more excitement. Crystal Palace for Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore, and Piglet. Good food- more quiet and relaxing. Both are good-depends which characters he likes best.

Breakfast at Tusker House, Crystal Palace, and 'Ohana are my fave character dining experiences.

My guys LOVED H&V and CM. Its hard to tell which one was more fun. They had a ton of fun dancing with Jake (who also came to our table and sat with us while DH was in the restroom). Its hard to beat the Fab5, but H&V comes close.

Our top 3 are Chef Mickey's, Crystal Palace and Cinderella's Royal Table. I know you have a boy, but there's something super-cool about dining in the castle, even though it features princesses. They make a big fuss about the little princes, and they get wishing stars and toy swords, and the decor in there is pretty masculine. Many of the little guys really get a kick out of it. Mine loved it when he was 5 and 8.

Chef Mickey's, Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto and Donald you can't beat it. The food on the other hand is honestly like any other buffet anywhere. If you had a little girl I would have suggested a princess meal, but for your little boy I would go with Chef Mickey's.
