    I've just made character dining reservations for each day that we are there. Where can I find the price per person so I can ensure that I am still staying within our budget? Thanks in advance!!!

    Hello Sandra,

    Character dining at Walt Disney World, is a wonderful time  to meet some of your favorite Disney characters and an even better way to fill that rumbly in your tumbly. And I completely understand the need to budget for your Walt Disney World trip.

    Budgeting for table service meals, at Walt Disney World can be a little tricky. Prices vary and are adjusted according to regular and peak season, along with weekdays and weekends. While the Walt Disney World website does provide Guests with a broad range of prices, it does not offer a more specific range for breakfast, lunch or dinner buffet prices. is a wonderful and informative site, which can guide you in estimating a food budget for these restaurants. I, always, take the higher end of the price range because I would prefer to over budget than under budget. Head over to and in their search engine, type in the restaurant of interest, for example Chef Mickey's. Select the breakfast menu and you will see what is offered on the menu along with price ranges (Adult price range: $33.01 - $40.46; Child ages 3-9: $18.10 - $21.29) Keep in mind tax and gratuity are not included in these price estimations. From here, I recommend using the higher end of the prices, I prefer to over budget. 

    If I can be of any further pixie dusted assistance feel free to ask and may your upcoming stay at Walt Disney World be filled with many magical and memorable moments.
