Being a Kid Again – Disney Character Dining Experience



character dining experience at disney

No one can really understand the love and excitement that grows inside you when it comes to Disney.

This photo says it all in my life. Jay, my husband, loves Eeyore. We went to the Cristal Palace for lunch in Magic Kingdom. It is an all you can eat character dining. The food was good. My husband has several food allergies, and they went out of their way to make him feel normal. He wanted salmon. They had to special cook it for him and the chef brought it to him and assured him he could have all he wanted.

Then we have the characters.

Eeyore is his very favorite from the time he was a young boy. The excitement and anticipation on his face was like a little kid. He became giddy when Eeyore appeared. Could not wait to see him and meet him. I also have the most love for Winnie the Pooh. My grandmother bought me my first Pooh at age 1 and I still have him. You can see the excitement and little kid come to life in us.

This is one of our best memories as DVC owners on a vacation. I would recommend this restaurant to all who love Winnie the Pooh and his friends in the Hundred Acre Woods.
