Hi everyone! Sorry to interrupt all these wonderful posts from the New Fantasyland but for those of you that have done character dining, which is your favorite place? How was the food, what characters did you see etc? Going to WDW in December and want to know which dining experience is best so I can make a reservation asap. Thanks in advance :)

Most of the character ones are a buffet with the usual food , carved meats , veggies , pizza , Mac n cheese ect , for dinner for breakfast the same , eggs , pancakes , French toast and lots of other yumminess , chef mickeys at the contemporary is really good , that has Mickey Minnie , goofy, Pluto and Donald , crystal palace in mk is good as well and Winnie the Pooh characters - tracsant  1502.7 #2 1:19PM
I didn't read your post before i posted mine.lol. U like the same character buffets! I highly agree with you:-) Are you visiting any of the character buffets during the rest of your trip btw? - mickeynme  178.1 #52 1:34PM
Great food' - lghr  48.8 #108 1:54PM
Garden grill in spot was really good food and Mickey, Pluto, chip and sale came by our table twice. Cinderellas royal table has princesses and enjoyed that. Ad hear Ohana has LILO and stitch at breakfast, ad good food (had their dinner and was really good, will be trying the breakfast in feb) - TinkTinkTink  264.9 #34 1:13PM
For us, we really enjoyed all the character meals we've experienced, and that's quite a few. We really prefer ordering from a menu though, buffets aren't our thing and most character meals are buffets. My opinion is: pick the characters you'd like to meet the most and go there. - DizneyGirl  968.0 #8 1:16PM
Chef mickey's:-) I like dinner there but breakfast is great too. I don't have specifics on the menu because i haven't been there in awhile,but they have everything and cater to everyone's different tastes. Mickey,minnie,goofy,donald,pluto are there (not sure if they still have chip n' dale..i would double-check on that) Also,crystal palace is great if you love the winnie the pooh characters. Food choices are similar to chef mickey's. Both spots have excellent meal choices at the buffet for both breakfast and dinner. Chef mickey's is located at the contemporary and crystal palace is located at MK near the castle. Enjoy wherever you choose:-) - mickeynme  178.1 #52 1:30PM
We have done 3 places. All were for breakfast and enjoyed them all. Crystal Palace which has Pooh,Tigger,Piglet and Eeyore. Chef Mickeys which has Mickey,Chip,Dale, and Goofy. 1900 Park Fare which has Mary Poppins,Alice in Wonderland and the Mad Hatter. - disneycm  712.0 #11 1:34PM
I've always wanted to try 1900 park fare! Is that where they have the evil stepsisters from cinderella? Lol - mickeynme  178.1 #52 1:37PM
I think they do but we did not see them at breakfast. Maybe it's at dinner. I'm really not sure. - disneycm  712.0 #11 12:30PM
Also,check on liberty tree tavern in frontierland. I heard it's cute because the characters dress in colonial outfits. Not sure how it is though because i've never been there. Heard it was okay - mickeynme  178.1 #52 1:36PM
I don't think they do character dining there anymore. :( - mrsincredible  1317.8 #4 1:50PM
Boooo:-( lol - mickeynme  178.1 #52 5:49PM
Liberty tree is not character no more but food is great. In sept we did Hollywood and vine for lunch it was a buffet alot of selections and very good. Characters were jake from never land pirates , oso, handy Mandy , June from little Einstein s. great fun they have a dance party right in the resraunt. And we did garden grill at Epcot for dinner. It was family style dinning all you can eat. Mickey, Pluto chip and dale. Very good. Highly recommend both - mmddgp  1064.3 #7 1:48PM
Really? No more character dining at liberty tree tavern? I wondered why they stopped it. Thanks for that info..i didn't know that..lol - mickeynme  178.1 #52 1:55PM
We have done Chef's Mickey for breakfast. 1900 Park Faire for dinner and Cinderella's Royal Table for lunch. Enjoyed the food buffet at both Mickey's and Park. Park was hilarious watching the step-sisters run around. CRT, I did not like what I had. My son liked his food. I would not go there again. - Lelundrial  711.3 #283 1:56PM
I really want to try Park! Have to see those step-sisters! Lol - mickeynme  178.1 #52 2:01PM
Our first night there we are meeting the step clan!! Soooooo excited!! - mrsincredible  1317.8 #4 1:51PM
We enjoyed the step mother and step sisters at 1900 Park Faire, but I didn't think the food was very good - lala03  76.5 #85 3:00PM
Please post pics of those funny step-sisters mrs i!! If u don't mind:D lol..would love to see them!! - mickeynme  178.1 #52 5:50PM
I will try!! - mrsincredible  1317.8 #4 6:41PM
If not,no worries!! I plan to track them down next time i go! :D lol - mickeynme  178.1 #52 6:44PM
Any other input? :) - misseeyore  538.0 #403 12:19PM
Hello!  I had posted a comment that is now gone.  We have enjoyed all our character meals, which we've done quite a few.  We aren't big fans of any buffet (Disney or otherwise), we prefer a menu, which there are a few character meals you can.  My opinion is go to the meal that has your favorite characters and/or go to a character meal that is in a resort you'd like to visit and walk around, this is how we've seen so many resorts, by going to their restaurants! - DizneyGirl  968.0 #8 12:46PM
How come no one recommends Akershus??? I will go for Akershus for the princess character meet-up. Its cheaper compare to Cinderella royal table (but if u really want to see the interior of the castle, go for it)... Akershus got appetizer buffet though. - otilegna  2783.0 #51 1:39PM
Misseeyore! Nice to see you here. I will add that you get a photopass plus card (its a good deal, and you and your sis loves pic so much) - otilegna  2783.0 #51 1:40PM
Hello! How much is it? haha We do like photos but I hope to depend on my Canon Rebel T3i to take good pictures. - misseeyore  538.0 #403 5:09PM
If tou pre-order it, its 169. 14days before your trip. Also the plus aide of that is select dining photo package are included... And also the digital copy of attrction pics - otilegna  2783.0 #51 7:25PM
Breakfast at Cape May at Beach club. Great good great characters. 😄😃😀 - lghr  48.8 #108 1:53PM
This is, by far, the best breakfast buffet we've been to. - DizneyGirl  968.0 #8 1:56PM
I was just researching about that place because the characters are in beach attire. They look so cute! :) - misseeyore  538.0 #403 5:11PM
We have done Chef Mickey's, Crystal Palace, Donald's Restaurantosaurus at AK (which has now moved to Tusker House), Cape May, and Hollywood & Vine. Loved them all!! This time we are adding to our list: 1900 Park Fare (breakfast and dinner - different characters), O'hana's, and CRT!! :) - mrsincredible  1317.8 #4 1:58PM
1900 Park Fare is wonderful!! So many character. - Deppsfan  37.7 #125 5:14PM
We really like Cape May for breakfast, Crystal palace was good. The Norway princess breakfast was fun but the food was not really my cup of tea. - TheDad  111.0 #68 5:15PM
We have done 1900 Park Fare for dinner. Chrystal Palace for breakfast and O'Hana for Breakfast. All were very good. - Pooh147856  381.8 #23 5:18PM
Just had dinner at 1900 Park Fare. The food was very good, Prince Charming & Cinderella were great, Drizella seemed to be the most interactive with the older children. - TheDad  111.0 #68 6:32PM
Do you happen to have any pictures? :) - misseeyore  538.0 #403 6:57PM
Not on my phone, I will try to upload some from the camera in a few days. It is a beautiful resort. - TheDad  111.0 #68 7:20PM
Alright. Cool! Thank you. - misseeyore  538.0 #403 7:23PM
Thank you all for your input. I really appreciate it :) - misseeyore  538.0 #403 5:27PM

Easily manage the social side of MouseWait for Disneyland and Disney World with our new mousetopia app for iOS. Post to the DL or WDW side, use your Stickers, and utilize our new MouseWait Messenger. Optimized for iOS 8 and the iPhone 6! See what's new here


MouseWait COUNTDOWN for iOS is here! Countdown the days to your next Disneyland or Disney World trip with our images OR your pics! Your Countdown also displays on Apple Watch and is beautiful on iPhone 6 screens. Secure the discounted launch price for a limited time.

So from the looks of it, there is not even one app made for those of us on android. You know there are millions of people who do not own iPhones. Its kind of rediculous these days not to offer an android version of apps. Would love to help this site grow by donating, but I see no point in that when there appears to be no intrest by the app builders here to support android. I mean how about atleast a partialy functional app so we can feel that the android users are even wanted as a part of the mousewait community. I see lots of requests and sad posts about no android, but dont see any replys by the site to the fact that anyone is even working on it.I've checked back here every so offten to see if there is anything for android users, but never bothered joining until today.I just wanted to rant a little, and now I am done.Unfortunalty, at this point I think I am officaily giving up on mousewait. Thanks for reading  and understanding my frustrations ( i hope ) and please everyone........Have a Disney-tastic day!Mark - molney14u  0.1 #105863 11:05AM
I have an iPhone and an old droid. I use the old droid for wait times when my iPhone can't connect and it works fine. There's so many droid phones to have  separate apps for but I hope android makers would start using the basic same code and security but I'm probably wishing on a star for that . I miss my droid but a lot of apps don't work the same.  - secretagentangel  6439.3 #20 8:10PM
I have the countdown and I love it! - tree320  0.6 #0 9:26AM
Doesn't everyone have a countdown clock on the top of one of their pinball machines?  Unfortunately mine is blank because our DL trip was weeks ago :( - awhittle  0.0 #127504 10:15AM
