Good Buffet option

One of our Magic Kingdom favs is lunch at the Crystal Palace. They offer a good selection of options to satisfy most palettes. I love the Winnie the Pooh characters who come by during the meal. Servers bring drinks and we have always had good service from them.

We loved the Crystal Palace! The food was better then we expected and tasted great! It was my favorite meal of our trip. Our toddler loves Pooh, so this was a home run! Nice place to eat and rest in the Magic Kingdom. Expensive, but it was fine for our family. Definitely recommend to ppl using disney dining plan. $41... More

You would think that breakfast would be a simple affair. At a Disney restaurant it should be pleasurable. Well, on this morning, the Crystal Palace closed early but not before we tried to eat. My omelette was over-cooked. Bacon was way too thin. I don't know what caused such a poor experience but breakfast is out at this place.

Perhaps there's a difference between dining at the Crystal Palace with young children and dining with only adults. Or maybe we were just seeing it though different eyes this time. When our daughter was young, we did the breakfast buffet, meeting Pooh and friends. Had a fantastic visit and great breakfast. This time, we went as adults (two were having... More

This is the best way to meet and greet characters and in air conditioned seated comfort and no long waits in line for fidgety kids (or adults). This is a place you go to to meet the characters. It isn't really about the food. The setting is beautiful. Grand high ceilings and light airy windows and everything is elegant and... More

Made reservations here for character dining 3 weeks in advance. The place was packed. Tigger,piglet came around for pictures which was sweet. Great variety on the buffett. The food was good. Ended up paying $150.00 for myself and 2 teenage girls to eat dinner here. Will eat some where else next time.

We recently visited for dinner with our two kids under 4. The food was 3/10. Mini corn dogs, over-sauced Mac and cheese, dry carved turkey, bagged iceberg lettuce salad bar, decent chicken thighs, and a dessert bar. Let's just say, don't go for the food. However, Winnie the Pooh, Eeyore, Piglet, and Tigger were great. Each one came to the... More
