Current Character Dining Options at Walt Disney World

| | |

Character Dining at Walt Disney World is a Table Service meal (sit-down option) accompanied by visits from Disney Characters while you stay seated at your table. Guests can enjoy their meal while the characters make their rounds, visiting each table and interacting with both adults and children. You can even once again hug your favorite pal!  During your visit, characters will make the rounds at least once, if not more than that.

Updated 10/20/2022: This page will be a regularly updated list of current character dining options at Walt Disney World.
