With friendly characters and amazing buffet, it's a must place for families and couples. It has its own bathrooms, and we appreciate the AC every time we go here. If you're on a Disney dining plan, go here for dinner to maximize your value.

This is a great character buffet. We had the deluxe dinning plan and decided to visit three character buffets. This one is our favorite. The american food is delicious and Winnie the Pooh and gang always make our kids happy.

I would say it is possible to still make rope drop, just not at the very front of the line. Because it is a buffet you will be able to eat right away and should be done in well less than an hour. Also, if you fast past a... More
