One of my favorite Character Dining experiences is at the Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom. The restaurant itself is so light and airy. We go there for breakfast on just about every trip and the morning sun pours through the windows making the white and green decor glow. It sits right between Main Street USA and Cinderella’s Castle and fits beautiful into the decor of Americana from Main Street as well as the romantic whimsy of the castle.
The characters at the Crystal Palace are our pals from the Hundred Acre Wood, Winnie the Pooh and friends. As someone who doesn’t like hunting down characters in the parks themselves, this is always a great way to see some of my all time favorites and enjoy a relaxing meal to begin the day.
I’m not much of foodie, but I go on a lot of Disney trips with little ones and they can be very picky eaters. The Crystal Palace is buffet dining, so even little picky eaters can see and pick out food they will like (including the all too tempting dessert area). As of yet, we have never had a hard time finding something everyone will eat there. I’ve never had a bad meal either.
If you are on a dining plan, this is a sit down dining credit, but for the opportunity to meet these characters for a nice breakfast to begin a epic Magic Kingdom, I don’t think you can go wrong. Always a credit well used for us!
