Just woke up from a bad dream...so to get myself outta the nightmare jitters im thinking about WDW...question..character dinners a must do for every trip or do you skip? I've done it in the best but im thinking about skipping this trip...thoughts?

We do character meals every trip. We really like them plus it better to meet them there instead of waiting in long lines. Just my opinion - Schramke  545.8 #15 12:41AM
** past not best..ughh autocorrect & not just dinners just character meals in general - AB1288  15.9 #189 12:16AM
Sometimes I feel the character meals are soooo rushed. After tusker house last year we had to find tums we all.had indigestion from rushing and our friend felt so bad he went back to room. So we have decided we don't mind waiting in line for chatacters. Just my opinion on things. - Bakerjars  251.6 #35 2:28AM
Oh, I'm sorry to hear that! You should definitely try again...maybe it was just a bad experience and not the norm. We have had wonderful over the top experiencies!! - mrsincredible  1096.6 #6 2:59AM
I think it just depends on the person or family and how they like to spend their time. We do character meals every trip, and at least one per day per trip. Breakfast ones, to us, are a great way to start our days at WDW, and a way to see all the main characters up close and personal (avoiding long lines in the parks to try and see them). One we have done them all at least once, then we'll just pick our favorites to revisit every year and maybe not go everyday. I enjoy them myself, maybe moreso than our kids, lol! We always get great pics during the meal meet and greets, and I am a sucker for capturing all our memories on film!! :) - mrsincredible  1096.6 #6 2:56AM
I hate bad dreams.....hope you were able to go back to sleep! - disneychk  23.1 #156 3:15AM
We do character meals every trip, they are fun! - perdita  71.2 #86 3:29AM
Love character meals!!! - HannahBanana36  46.4 #110 3:32AM
We love them even if we didn't have a Lil one we would still do several of them! - girlonfire  54.1 #102 4:53AM
We enjoy the character meals but don't do them every trip. When we spend over 4 days on the trip we usually do them with the table service dining plan. - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #20 4:59AM
On a few trips we did one every day. They are too time consuming, we now do one per entire trip, would maybe do two. - DizneyGirl  892.3 #7 6:07AM
We only do one to two a trip. - Ariel42  262.9 #30 6:18AM
We do one character experience each day of our trips. I think it just depends on how many days you are there. Also, I think sometimes, depending on of you have kiddos, that determines if you have a character dining experience*+.*+.*+. - CinderellaPrincess85  194.6 #44 6:20AM
We do the same thing! However, I might still do the best ones even without my kiddos, lol! I know, I know... my name is Maggie, and I have an addiction!! :) - mrsincredible  1096.6 #6 6:29AM
I don't think it's a must unless it's your first trip . - skcanfield  550.5 #14 9:25AM
Thanks everyone...im gunna have to think about it...i dont have any kids but I do love meeting the characters...it won't be my first trip but my friend & her boyfriend are going with us & its their first time....gunna have to look into - AB1288  15.9 #189 6:24AM
I like your thinkin'!! :) - mrsincredible  1096.6 #6 6:30AM
