“Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.” A famous quote from Winnie the Pooh himself, and the perfect way to describe the amazing character dining experiences offered throughout Walt Disney World. While only a meal – the experiences of the character meet and greet are personal, beautiful, and a wonderful way to create special memories that commemorate a magical day in the parks.
Winnie the Pooh and Breakfast Too
The dining experience at the Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom features everyone’s favorite friends from the Hundred Acre Woods including Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, and of course – Tigger too. It’s a fun experience that simply cant be missed (especially for little Pooh fans!).
The restaurant features breakfast, lunch and dinner options with a beautiful all you can enjoy buffet and dessert bar. The friendly characters roam around the Victorian café while you eat, and personally stop at each table to pose for photos, laughs, autographs, and a personal meet and greet.
The Crystal Palace
The Crystal Palace is located just steps within the entrance of Walt Disney World, and overlooks the courtyard of Cinderella’s Castle.
Inside the Palace
Inspired by Victorian greenhouses seen in the late 1800s, The Crystal Palace is full of beautiful sunlight, tropical trees, and a gorgeous place to celebrate a special meal with family.
Love the topiaries that stand in the center of the restaurant.
The bountiful buffet has an endless array of foods. We visited for breakfast – options included delicious omelets, breakfast meats, freshly baked pastries, fruit, cereal and more. There was something for everyone’s taste and palate.
Magical breakfast dreams are made of these! How cute are these Mickey waffles?!
