  1. So I’m actually a cast member at Walt Disney World and I work at Cinderella’s Royal Table. The Fairy Godmother no longer makes appearrences at the restaurant and neither does Belle. Cinderella is the only Princess that we are guaranteed to have.

  3. Is Sophia a walk around character in addition to dining? We are going in May 2014 and are trying to limit character meals to 2 and get the best character bang for our buck. 5yo is in love with princesses of course so based on your blog we are trying to go with Askerhus for breakfast and 2yo would love traditional characters like Minney, Mickey, etc. and I think we will try to go to the dining for lunch a different day at Animal kingdom. Any other suggestions?

      1. Thank you! I thought I saw on your blog somewhere (Awhile back) that there is a dining location that is less popular/busy but great to see Mickey, et. al. Is that Tusker House or somewhere else?

        Love your site by the way (And I’ve been to Disney twice as an adult and still learning new stuff from you!)

  4. Good luck with that! I’ve called three times, gotten a confused – I don’t think so, let me connect you here…. and then a voice mail with never a reply. I’m hoping Wyndham, as I have many guests that stay there.

  5. Kenny- I’m having a hard time finding confirmation of any character breakfast at any Wyndham property, much less Wyndham Bonnet Creek specifically. I’ve confirmed the Hilton Buena Vista, BuenaVista Palace, And of course Garden Grove. But– nary a whisper on any Wyndham or any Bonnet Creek properties.
    Help?

  6. FYI, Donald is not at backyard BBQ, except for special holiday editions (like 4th of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving) when they add a bunch of other extra characters too. Regular set is just mickey, minnie, goofy, chip, dale.

  7. Hey Kenny,

    I was trying to find some info for “Be Our Guest” but can’t find it on your site. Any idea what kind of food they serve, is there a show, etc…?
    Thanks again 🙂

    1. French inspired food. No show. Beast will walk through the restaurant occasionally then take his place near the exit. It’s Table Service and requires reservation. I’ll have menus and such in the future. We have that info in our new app.

    1. Sophia will begin making meets soon. It’s possible that she could join the HV lineup. Doc McStuffins isn’t even a walk around character yet.

  8. Kenny – First – thank you for providing this very useful info, your website really helped with my planning our trip last year. Never heard of characterpalozza before I found your site!! Thank you!
    Got a question or two about where to find Belle in her yellow ball gown in the MK. Is she only in Fantasy Land at Storytime w/Belle? Also, is she no longer at CRT in her blue dress? One more question – which princesses are meeting at Town Square now? Thanks again 🙂

    1. Belle in gold gown is only at Enchanted Tales and Akershus. She does not appear at CRT any longer. Rapunzel, Aurora and Cinderella are regulars in Town Square Theater and are on the Magic Kingdom schedule. You’re welcome! KtP

      1. Thanks for your quick response. We are going in July & DD7 wants to pick a princess dress for BBB & diner at CRT.

  9. Just a word of advice for those booking Princess meals. I’ve never been to Askershus, but we had breakfast at the castle right at 8 on my sisters sweet sixteen earlier this month. The character interaction was TERRIBLE. Cinderella and Ariel were okay and I honestly don’t remember a single thing that happened with Aurora and Snow White, other than Snow White left after only taking one picture that didn’t turn out very well. Belle was great, though.

    Over all, it was probably my least pleasant character dining experience, interactionwise. It’s worth it to go and eat inside the castle once, but I don’t think I’d ever go back.

    From what I’ve heard Askershus is better for character interactions. And there’s so many other great character dining experiences, usually with better food! (Which was just okay, by DIsney standards.)

    1. I’m sorry you had a bad experience. We’ve only done breakfast there a number of times and quite enjoyed the meal and the princesses were very accomodating for us. Always feel free to request the manager if things are going as you wish, he or she will try to accomodate you. Thanks for sharing though!

      As for the food, I’m not terribly fond of most WDW dining experiences.

  10. Hello! My daughter, Aurora, loves Sleeping Beauty. I booked the Akershaus breakfast. Do you know for certain if Aurora goes there?

  11. We have a breakfast scheduled at Cinderella’s Castle June 1. Our reservation is at 8:20, park doesn’t open until 9…do you know how that works? Also, our confirmation says “Cinderella, Belle, Snow White, Jasmine” as confirmed Princesses…does this mean the others you named above will not appear? Any information you have is appreciated. I love this site…very helpful. Thanks for providing it!

    1. Michelle,
      Congrats on your first CRT breakfast! It’s our favorite meal there. You’ll be able to enter the park as early as 7:45 am with that reservation, which will give you time to take photos with the castle. They will have one gate marked for character meals, you just enter there. Make your way up through the castle and you’ll find crt on the right as you are about to exit. Check in there and enjoy breakfast. You get one free photo package for 1-4 people and 5-9 so on.
      The first three princessses are pretty much a given, the fourth character rotates, so no guarantee as to who it will be.
      Have fun!
      KtP

      1. Thank you for the information. When I made the reservation, I did not even think about the Park being near empty and all the great photo ops that would afford us on our ‘leisurely’ stroll to the castle. Great to know about the princesses as well. Our daughter wants to meet them all, so if we can see 4 all at once, that helps our time situation immensely. Thanks again!

  12. Thank you for compiling this info in one place! However, there are a couple of small errors: Minnie does not appear at Tusker, Pluto does not appear at the BBQ, but Peter Pan does appear at P&P. H&V is breakfast and lunch only, no dinner.

    1. I forgot to mention, Garden Grove is not a Disney Restaurant… so if you want to include other Operating Participants; Buena Vista Place has Goofy, Minnie, Pluto for Sun Breakfast; Hilton has Br’er Bear, Br’er Fox, Minnie and Pluto for Sun Breakfast; Garden Grove has Chip, Dale, Goofy, Pluto for Sun Breakfast and Goofy, Pluto for Sat Breakfast; Wyndham has Goofy and Pluto for Tue/Thur/Sat Breakfast.

  13. Question, is Minnie at Tusker House lunch? Under the Character Meals tab, Minnie isn’t listed, but on the Minnie section under the Master List, Tusker House as shown as a location for her. We have an ADR at @ TH, and I’m just trying to determine if I also need to make time for Camp Mickey & Minnie to see Minnie. Thanks!

  14. On WDW web site, they say that Hollywood and Vine has characters only at breakfast and lunch. Is dinner also part of the character meal ? Bt te way, AMASING blog !

  15. The Garden Grove Restaurant at the Swan and Dolphin also offers character meals with Goofy and Pluto. In 2010 we enjoyed a good quality meal in a very low key setting (compared to other character meals such as Chef Mickey).
