There are a few different options available for character dining at Disney World that are spread out across the parks and Disney World hotels. The best character dining option for your trip will likely come down to which parks you'll be visiting, which characters you want to see and the type of food you'll want to enjoy during the experience. 

We just returned from a trip to Disney World and enjoyed a Halloween themed character dinner at Minnie’s Seasonal Dining at Hollywood & Vine inside Disney's Hollywood Studios.    

For Minnie's Seasonal Dine Dinner at Hollywood & Vine, breakfast lunch and dinner character dining options are available.  For breakfast, you'll meet with Disney Junior Stars and for lunch and dinner, you'll meet with Minnie and friends at seasonal dining parties.

For our experience, we enjoyed a character dinner at Hollywood & Vine on the day we planned on visiting Disney's Hollywood Studios.  After a long hot and exhausting day of exploring the park and going on rides, it was nice to have a sit-down table service buffet-style dinner to end the day.  

If you haven't experienced a character dinner here, the restaurant is setup as an old-school diner with seating on both sides of a central buffet area.  Once you're seated, you can order drinks (specialty or alcoholic drinks not included in standard price) and begin grabbing dinner at the buffet.  During the course of your dinner, characters will make their way over to your table to sign autographs and take pictures.

Is character dining at Minnie’s Seasonal Dining at Hollywood & Vine worth the cost?

  • The main reason why I like to book character dining while visiting Disney Parks is for the experience for the kids and being able to meet your favorite Disney characters during the dining experience to save valuable time while in the park for other attractions.  
  • For example, instead of waiting in line to see Mickey Mouse while visiting Disney's Hollywood Studios, you could schedule a Dinner visit to Minnie's Seasonal Dine Dinner at Hollywood & Vine and see him there. 


Overall, I would highly recommend booking at least one character dining experience during your Disney World visit, especially if you have younger kids.  The joy in meeting their favorite characters and being able to interact more with them here, is worth the cost in my opinion.  Plus you'll get to enjoy a nice meal along the way, making for a very memorable experience for everyone.
