This Table Service restaurant offers a Character Dining experience and a delicious buffet. Winnie the Pooh and his friends from the Hundred-Acre Wood roam from table to table, allowing you to take pictures or receive autographs from the characters while you dine. The buffet-style service allows Guests to take all they care to enjoy from the buffet line at their leisure while the characters visit each table.

Due to the high popularity of The Crystal Palace and its Character Dining experience, an advanced dining reservation is highly recommended. Guests can make dining reservations 60 days in advance of their stay. If you cannot get a dining reservation 60 days before your stay, continue to check the My Disney Experience app in case reservations become available closer to the date.

About Megan Losey

As a Disney foodie, I love writing about Disney food and snacks. Some of my favorites are the Carrot Cake Cookie from Trolley Car Cafe, the Mickey Beignets from Port Orleans French Quarter, and the Apple Blossom from Port Orleans Riverside. When I'm visiting the parks, you can find me on Main Street taking in the good vibe of Magic Kingdom or relaxing with a drink at the Polynesian watching the fireworks from the beach. As a previous Cast Member, I will always have a special place in my heart for the Magic Kingdom, especially Main Street U.S.A.
