One of my favorite Character meals is at Disney’s Crystal Palace in Magic Kingdom®. The Crystal Palace is located at the end of Main Street, turn left at Casey’s and then just past the First Aid building. You will not be able to miss it since the building itself is so astonishing! When you walk up to the building it is beautiful, and with its bright lights at night it looks like it glows. In my opinion, it is another architectural marvel of Walt Disney World® and it was fashioned after San Francisco’s Conservatory of Flowers.
There are gardens across from the benches where you can wait for your table to be ready. While you are waiting, walk across the path for a nice picture of the pond, Cinderella’s Castle and gardens during the day. At night, shoot a beautiful picture of the Castle. In addition, you might want a beautiful picture of the Crystal Palace at night with all of its lights. It always reminds me of Christmas! The wait time is usually about 15-20 minutes. This is a very busy restaurant and I have never gotten in as a walk-up. Do not forget to make reservations!
This restaurant is also fun for adults and has great food! It is a buffet with carved meats, has many choices of food, and desserts at lunch and dinner. Breakfast has a variety of different items. The characters at this dining location are Pooh, Eeyore, Tigger, and Piglet. Adults go ahead, get a picture with the characters, and show you’re Disney Side! I never miss a chance to have my picture taken with the characters. We have been eating at the Crystal Palace since my son was just a baby, and it is now one of the spots we go to on every trip.
The inside of the building is very large with tables, Victorian style indoor gardens, hanging greenery, and flowers. It is very beautiful! It is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast runs about $26 for adults and $15 for children 3-9. Lunch costs about $30 for adults and $16 for children. Dinner costs $40 for adults and $20 for children. Children under 3 are FREE! I think that you will enjoy any meal here in this fabulous palace!
