Dining with the characters at Disney World is a great way to enjoy a meal. And it is not just for kids! We've looked into the different character meals with help from our friends at the Disney Food Blog and have come up with some more adult friendly character meals!
There are a lot of things to take into consideration when booking a meal with the characters, what meal, how much do you want to spend, who do you want to see, where do you want to eat, and more! We have taken into consideration what makes a dining experience more enjoyable for adults and want to share it with you!
Noise Level. If you are one of those people who just can't stand a noisy restaurant then we suggest you skip Chef Mickey's and Play n'Dine. Opt for the Garden Grill, Cinderella's Royal Table, Princess Storybook, or the Cape May Cafe instead.
Food Quality. While all of the Disney character meals are good, a few stand out in terms of food quality. The Crystal Palace, Ohana, and the Cape May Cafe all got the highest ratings in the Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World.
Characters. This category is totally subjective because it is truly your choice! Some people know what characters they want to dine with and that can pretty much make the decision for you but for others who aren't sure check out the Disney Food Blog's breakdown of which characters are at what meals.
Time of Day. From personal experience I would say that the breakfast and lunch character meals are more crowded and a little bit louder, but at dinner you run the risk of having a child at the table next to you break down from exhaustion and that could really ruin your meal. My vote would still be for dinner with a later dinner reservation which means your options include Chef Mickey's, Crystal Palace, Garden Grill, Princess Storybook, Cinderella's Royal Table, and 1900 Park Fare.
My top picks for adult-friendly character dining are Cinderella's Royal Table, 1900 Park Fare, the Cape May Cafe, and the Crystal Palace. I have to say the ultimate character dining experience is Cinderella's Royal Table. What girl doesn't dream of being treated like a princess?
