Not Eating at Character Meal

My husband is on a special diet, it's his last week and he can not have breakfast, Just coffee.... Do we still have to pay for the character meal? LTT used to have a character fee I think $15 if you didn't eat, But it's been awhile, anyone know... I have 3 morning meals planned but he will not be eating at all.

thanks,
Wendy

No more character fees. At all buffets, all you can eat restaurants and fixed price restaurants, including all character meals, everyone pays full price, whether they eat or not. This is the prevailing policy. You may also want to check the DisABILITIES forum but that information is probably more relevant to guests who are physically incapable of eating, not those who don't partake of certain types of food. But I have seen examples where exceptions are not made for persons who are incapable of eating. You may also want to find out if the restaurant can prepare something for him that he is able to eat.

Yes, if he goes into a restaurant (character meal) and sits there without eating, he will most likely be charged whether or not he eats. It depends on which server you get, but most of them will charge you no matter what.

Liberty Tree doesnt have character meals anymore just so you know.

We had someone in our party who was just getting over a stomach bug and didn't eat. And we told the server up front that she would not be eating and we were still charged full price for her buffet.
Your best bet is to switch to a non-buffet meal.

You can switch to a non- buffet meal - but you'd have to give up character meals. All of them are buffet, all you can eat family style, or fixed price.

How about he has his coffee at a nearby quick service location and you can still go to the character meals with the kids. I know my DH wouldn't go for this as the reason for vacation is to be together but maybe it would be an option for you

For example at chef Mickey the Contempo Cafe is right next door

How long does he have to fast (?) in the morning? You said just coffee and no breakfast, so I'm assuming he can have lunch or a mid-day meal. Can you change your character meals to lunch (or dinner)? Or even a last seating for breakfast?
