First Look: More Character Dining to Return at Walt Disney World


70097323-2EE5-4167-94C6-CCBF25D25695.jpeg

Across Walt Disney World, some of our guest-favorite restaurants are gearing up to welcome popular pals back, including Stitch for breakfast at ‘Ohana at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, Minnie and her friends for breakfast at Cape May Café at Disney’s Beach Club Resort, and Winnie the Pooh and friends at The Crystal Palace in Magic Kingdom Park for both lunch and dinner.

Get ready for some hugs, laughs, and lasting memories because here are the places getting character dining back soon!

Let’s start with a trip to Magic Kingdom Park, where there are some special characters coming back for a friendship celebration nestled within Main Street, U.S.A. On September 20, some friends from the Hundred Acre Wood will be rejoining the celebratory feasting for lunch and dinner at The Crystal Palace: A Buffet with Characters featuring Winnie the Pooh and Friends. This greenhouse-inspired beauty is the perfect place to spend your day with some hugs and a feast, with options like Carved Prime Rib, Seasonal Ravioli, and Peel & Eat Shrimp.

At Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, get ready for some relaxing vibes as you treat yourself to some breakfast classics at the ‘Ohana Best Friends Breakfast featuring Lilo and Stitch, coming back on September 27! Nothing beats getting some love from everyone’s favorite mischievous friend, Stitch, to start off your day. Get your hugs in as you enjoy tasty treats like the Pineapple Coconut Breakfast Bread and Mickey Waffles and sip on the iconic Lilikoi Juice and the yummy Moana Smoothie.

Over at Disney’s Beach Club Resort, you’ll find Cape May Café, a New-England inspired spot serving up some tasty eats in an all-you-care-to-enjoy buffet! On October 4, the Cape May Café Minnie’s Beach Bash Breakfast will be making its exciting return. Have some fun with Disney friends as you enjoy your morning favorites at this feast, including the mouthwatering Salted Caramel “Beach Buns.” And what breakfast is complete without the famous Mickey and Minnie Waffles? Fuel up for your day the right way with these unforgettable characters and dishes.

You can see Lady Lily posing with some Disney Wish cast members in the image above. Who is Lady Lilly you ask?
Well according to Schrader, she is part of a new character experience being developed for the ship. She will be popping up throughout your sailing to give you all the gossip you may have missed about the other Disney characters you’ll encounter during your visit.

Great news! I hope to see some for 1900 Park Fare next. Was one of my favorite character meals and I wanted to do it on my December trip (crossing my fingers).

It has not been announced yet if it will have the same restrictions as Riviera, or if it will be part of the same association. I’ll definitely post any new information once it’s released!
It DOES say 'expansion' on the DVC website when trying to book at the Polynesian.

Every refurbishment announcement makes me even more happy I chose the first weekend of august dates.
I was just thinking the same thing we are going to Disneyland Aug 10-15th so we will still be able to ride this and HM. I remember this ride when it was the horrible paparazzi ride as we went to CA for our honeymoon right after it opened.
