We recently made our first trip to Walt Disney World as a family of three. We got married at Disney just over ten years ago, so we were very excited to introduce our toddler to our Disney obsession. We did several things differently this trip because we had a tiny human with us. In the past, we did mostly quick service meals and we had never done a character meal! This trip, we decided to try one out!
We highly enjoyed our trip the The Crystal Palace. Winnie the Pooh is Mr. Not So Crafty’s favorite fictional character. We had a hard time deciding what meal to do, but we went with breakfast. We arrived about 15 minutes early for our reservation and were quickly seated. Like most character dinning experiences at Disney World, advanced reservations are highly recommended. There may or may not be day of reservations available, but we do not recommend risking it if the restaurant is on your must do list! While we were waiting, the hostess gave us a little paper that not only had allergy information on it, but it also had a list of foods that we could order from the kitchen custom made to be safe for specific allergies.
The food was delicious and the selection was amazing! Mr. Not So Crafty and our little one really enjoyed the sausage and bacon. There was a really amazing made to order omelette station with tons of choices for fillings. They had more food than we can remember to list! For the allergy safe offerings, I ordered a muffin and mickey waffles. Both these things were delicious. The muffin was Udi brand. This was not listed on the allergy menu, I am just a big fan of their muffins.
While the food was a pleasant perk, the reason we booked this meal was to meet the Winnie the Pooh characters. The characters available were Eeyore, Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, and Piglet. Each character came by individually to each table. They did not rush and spent plenty of time with each family. Out of all the characters, Piglet spent the most time at our table. We didn’t think our daughter was ever going to let him go and he didn’t appear to mind!
We did not dislike a single thing about this dining experience! Everything from the food to the service was amazing. We can not wait to make reservations for our next trip!
