Dining Spotlight: Character Meals at Disney World

Character Dining at Walt Disney World Have you ever dined with characters at a Walt Disney World Restaurant? Dining with characters is a must-do during our Walt Disney World family vacations! There is no easier way to meet characters, get pictures and autographs! Most meals require one Table Service credit from the Disney Dining Plan and a few, like Cinderella’s Royal Table, require two table service credits. Reservations are not required, but HIGHLY recommended if you want to dine at one of these fabulous restaurants. Reservations can be made 180 days prior to your check in date. Now, let’s go over the different restaurants and always remember that characters are subject to change.
