Great interactions with the characters here. Food is standard buffet type stuff, but always tasty and lots of choices. We really go here for the characters and are never disappointed.

On a recent trip to Disney World with my parents, brother, sister, her husband and their two children under the age of 3, we enjoyed a great family breakfast at the Crystal Palace. The food is excellent, with a range of dishes to please almost anyone and good options for the kids. There's a custom omelette station, pancakes, egg dishes,... More

During our recent family vacation to Disney we had many character meals and The Crystal Palace was by far our favorite. The largest difference is space and ambiance! I know these dont seem to be that important but it made a huge difference for us. The room is open with lots of light and beautiful decor. No squeezing out of... More

One of my favorite character meals in Disney! We have always done breakfast here, it is more economical and delicious! The Pooh puffed french toast is wonderful, Mickey waffles are always tasty as well! There is the standard Disney buffet fare: cereal, pastries, fruit, bagels and lox, potatoes, eggs, bacon, sausage, corned beef hash, etc. I like that this buffet... More

My party came here to see Winnie the Pooh and friends for dinner, and that's the best part of the whole evening. The staff was pretty attentive, but the food was sub-par. We liked Chef Mickey and the Grand Floridian's buffets way better.

A hot, fresh breakfast buffet (all you can eat, and you WILL eat a lot!) makes this character breakfast really worth it. While you wait to meet Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, and Eeyore, go back for seconds! I recommend the puffed french toast and cheddar-bacon scones. They will also make you a custom omelet!

We came here for a sit down meal and to meet Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, and Eyore. The food was very good and the experience was top notch for the kids. The buffet was full of many, many choices. Our favorites were the steak and the butternut squash soup. The kids loved the sundae dessert bar. Would definitely eat here again.... More

We did the character dining at the Crystal Palace with Winnie the Pooh and friends. We waited about 30 minutes for a table on the early side of the normal time window for dinner. Food was typical buffet fare, heavy on the starches and just plain heavy. Though the freshly carved roast and turkey was surprisingly moist. Salad offerings weren't... More

We had dinner here last year and loved it. This year we all felt it was not nearly as good. The turkey last year was outstanding while this year was only average. Don't know what the trouble is but it was a let down.
