Everyone know that character meals are more expensive but this is expected and i think if you have little ones should budget at least one character experience meal. The look on there faces is priceless when characters come around.

We had several character dining experiences. My favorite is the Crystal Palace for breakfast. We have done this one several times and it is always a hit. We also had meals at Cinderella's Royal Table and at Chef Mickeys. I think for the price, breakfast...More

Ate at both the Tusker House in Animal Kingdom and the Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom. Each had very good buffet style food and the thrill of characters that visit the tables. At Tusker it was Mickey, Donald, Daisy, and Goofy in jungle garb....More

Three of us was over 150 dollars. That is just crazy. Service was average because it was crazy busy. Feel sorry at times for the staff. Cost wasn't worth it to me.

11 of us did the Breakfast Character Dining Experience at the Boardwalk resort. Disappointing in the number of characters that were present, mainly Donald Duck, Goofy and Minnie Mouse, but the buffet was excellent. The cost is rather high, but you pay to see the...More

The Garden Grill Restaurant at EPCOT's the Land is a character dinning experience. The food was good and is served family style. Taking pictures with the characters was fun. But, just like most Disney World Character dinning, it is expensive..
