4. Character dining doesn’t always happen for all meal times
There are some restaurants that offer character dining for one mealtime and then regular full service for another meal time, such as Ohana and Cape May Café. If you want to dine with characters, make sure the time you’re reserving coincides with the character-dining schedule. If you’re booking a character dining experience in the parks, they do normally meet during every meal period, but it never hurts to double check!
