There is a little sticker shock that came with this meal but then again when we booked it we were not aware that it was a character dinner. We were able to see Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Piglet and Eyeore all while we were at our dinner table. My son was tickled so it was worth it in the end.

The buffet was excellent! The Winnie the Pooh characters were really fun, too. They spent time with the kids as well as the adults! Got a great photo of Tigger with my elderly mother. So cool!

Chrystal palace is found in Disney's Magic Kingdom and the food is buffet style but is great. The selection of food changes from breakfast through to lunch and dinner and all are great. One big tip is go for breakfast at a time before the park opens and as long as a reservation is made they let you into the... More

I made reservations for breakfast at 8:20 (park opened at 9 am that day) for 2 about 3 months in advance. I chose this place because it is the cheapest character dining experience I could find. We were on a buget. It was very easy getting into the park. They will have your name on a list that you check... More

Family if 4 - loved the food, the characters, and the convenience of not having to leave the park. We would be happy to eat here again. It did take a while for the final character to get around to us, but that wasn't a huge deal (the kiddos just ate more dessert while we waited).

We go here every time (several times a year) we use our dvc time share. Food is always yummy. I have only gone for breakfast. We live the Mickey waffles and the other buffet items. Food is always fresh and hot. The characters are cute but can take zing time to circulate. This time a rude cast member chastised me... More

Crystal Palace is a can't miss for our family is Disney World. Winnie the Pooh and friends are timeless characters. The building itself is gorgeous and adds to the magic of Disney. The food selection is top notch and it's all delicious. You may have to wait for a table, but once inside and sitting everything moves along very smoothly.
