    We are going to Disney World for the first time. I'd like to know your favorite character meal because we plan to only do one or two sit down meals to save time. Any suggestions?

    Hi Jen!

    Primarily, let me wish a heartfelt congratulations on planning your first trip to Walt Disney World! The memories you will make will be ones you will cherish for years to come!

    My favorite character dining experience would be the buffet at Crystal Palace. Located in Magic Kingdom, Crystal Palace offers a dining experience with Winnie the Pooh and friends. You are able to enjoy a plethora of foods available throughout the day. From pancakes, bacon and freshly made-to-order omelets at breakfast to pizza, carved meats and vegetables for lunch and dinner, the food is always superb and excellent quality (try the breakfast pizza, it's DELICIOUS). The location cannot be beat, directly across from Cinderella castle, and the characters visit each table several times to make sure that guests have the chance to take a photo with the beloved Winnie the Pooh or Piglet (my personal favorite). At night, guests are treated to a lovely view of Cinderella Castle, and if you time your dinner right, you could have a front row seat to enjoy Wishes, Nighttime Spectacular right from the comfort of your dining table. I have had the blessing to have photos done with my children every year at CP, and it holds a very special place in my heart, as I'm sure it will yours.

    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation! -Malanie
