Best Character Meals

We've tried most of the character meals, but just wanted to see if there were any great ones we've missed!

I should rephrase...what are your favorite character meals?

Cape May Cafe breakfast and Garden Grove in the Swan are excellent and often overlooked =).

Tusker House was my favorite. We went for breakfast and thought both the food and the character interaction were very good!

We love Tusker House and it is the one meal that we ALWAYS do. We try to get one of the first reservations so that we get to walk through the park before it opens. Then we can ride Kilimanjaro Safari right when it opens- that's when the animals seem to be the best!

Plus, the food and characters are great!

My favorite character hands down is Tusker House. My son really enjoyed the characters at O'hana but we didn't like the food.

We've only ever done two. Crystal Palace and Tusker House. Personally we loved Crystal Palace, most likely because I can't resist a good Eeyore snuggle. We really hated Tusker House. We felt awkward and out of place without kids, the characters basically just walked around our table....I think one waved at us.

We did Tusker House, 1900, Cinderella RT, Chef Mickeys, and Ohana's. The best by far was Cinderella RT. Worst Tusker House where the food was cold and service bad. Cinderella RT was awesome because of its location, food, and service.

Our favorite is Ohana for breakfast. A close second is Chef Mickeys. We did breakfast at both locations and really enjoyed the food and the characters.

If you are referring to Tusker House? It is located in AK.

I hated 1900. They had the tables so close to each other and there were so many people - felt like a sardine in a can. People were bumping into each other the entire time we were there. The Mad Hatter was awesome, so was the strawberry soup, but I can do without ever setting foot in 1900 again.
