Making the Most of Character Meals

Whether you are eating at a buffet-style restaurant or one where you order from the menu, the character meals follow the same basic pattern. A set list of characters makes the rounds to each table, stopping for photos and to sign autographs. The characters circulate frequently and are meticulous about hitting each table, so you don’t have to worry about being overlooked.

Character meals can be the single best experience for a child on a Disney vacation. There is something special about Mickey Mouse coming to visit you at your dinner table, as opposed to waiting in line for hours to meet him in a park.

I recommend that if you have kids, you get at least one character meal during your stay. I also think that you can overdo them. Don’t make every dinner a character meal; set aside some meals for discussing the day’s events. It will make you enjoy the vacation even more!
