Character Breakfast Buffet Returns To Crystal Palace Restaurant

Crystal Palace

Disney World dining locations that typically offer character experiences have been recently returning! The Crystal Palace restaurant reopened in December 2020 offering family-style lunch and dinner after being closed during the pandemic. At first they offered a Family-style dining and in September 2021 they brought back the buffet but not yet the characters.

Friendship Day Card

The ‘Friendship Day Celebration’ parade is a staple at this restaurant, characters walk around the restaurant with balloons and flags, this happens about one time every hour and is great fun for little ones!

This is a big restaurant, so it takes a while for the characters to stop at each table, but don’t worry, you’ll have plenty of time to see everyone and the cast members will also make sure that this actually happens too.

Other 100 Acre Wood characters, like Eeyore, will stop by your table!

This character breakfast is highly recommended! There are options for everyone and all of them are very delicious.

The addition of the new Mickey Churro Waffles was definitely a HIT!! The classic Puffy French Toastis still in the offerings and it’s amazing. The Signature Breakfast Lasagna, which is like a bread pudding with strawberries, banana and custard, is a MUST-TRY.

Advance reservations are highly recommended and can be made up to 60 days in advance.

The Crystal Palace Restaurant is an enchanting spot to dine in the heart of Magic Kingdom park and if you ask our opinion, we recommend breakfast over lunch or dinner!
