Dine at Crystal Palace with Winnie the Pooh & Friends!

A trip to Disney or a day at Magic Kingdom is not complete without a trip to our favorite restaurant at Walt Disney World – a character dining experience with Winnie the Pooh and friends at the Crystal Palace!

We go to Crystal Palace on pretty much every Disney trip. Usually we save some money by eating a late lunch which is quite a bit cheaper than dinner. Even at that, our late-lunch (2:15 reservation) for five ended up being over $160 including tip.

While definitely not cheap, the food is delicious, the service great, and nothing beats lunch with Winnie the Pooh (and Tigger, Piglet, and Eeyore too!)

Winnie the Pooh character diningThe Crystal Palace, located just off Main Street U.S.A. at Magic Kingdom is a beautiful restaurant inside and out. The architecture is gorgeous and the large atrium at the center of the restaurant is stunning… and don’t forget the all-you-can-eat buffet!

The lunch menu features chicken nuggets and macaroni and cheese for the kids, but sadly Crystal Palace dropped pizza from the menu. The menu includes ham and flank steak sliced to order, ratattouilli, and assorted pastas and salads. The dessert bar is huge and includes various cobblers, pies, cakes, and other assorted baked goods, as well as a self-serve ice cream sundae bar! Yum!

Winnie the Pooh and friends circulate through the restaurant regularly, and you’re sure to get at least one visit from each during your stay. Be sure you’re at your table when the characters get close because you won’t want to miss meeting them! They’ll be happy to pose with you for pictures, and are you to offer a high-five, fist-bump, or a hug to the kids. Kids young and old will really enjoy this experience, and their trip to the Crystal Palace!

About DisneyDad

Two things I love are travel and writing. It only makes sense that the two should come together in the form of a Disney website, Blog, and eBook travel guides. My first book, "Discover the Magic: The Ultimate Insider's Guide to Walt Disney World" captures the essence of the happiest place on Earth- Walt Disney World! There is no place like Disney for a magical, mystical vacation. Though I was never able to visit as a child (we didn't take 'big' vacations like that) I fell in love with the place the first time my family and I walked through the gates of Magic Kingdom several years ago. Now, I just can't get enough of it! I published my book because I wanted to share my knowledge and experiences with others in hopes that they too would enjoy the Magic of Walt Disney World as much as I do. Hopefully the tips, park guides, and other details in the book will help make your vacation to Disney even better!
