4 Off-Walt-Disney-World-Property Hotels With Character Dining Experiences

Lake View Character Breakfast

1. Wyndham Lake Buena Vista

At the Lakeview Restaurant in the Wyndham Lake Buena Vista, guests can interact with Pluto and Goofy while enjoying an expansive breakfast buffet. And here’s the bonus: this is probably the most reasonable Character Dining experience you’ll ever find, with a price of $27 for adults and $13 for kids four and up (that’s right, kids three and under are free here). Unbelievable! Character Breakfast at the Wyndham is available from 7:30-10:30 on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, and it’s recommended to arrive early since the restaurant services the Wyndham Garden guests as well. 


Swan Resort

Most people know about the Swan and Dolphin hotels, located within walking distance to Epcot. So this one is definitely located on-property, but since the Swan and Dolphin are not technically owned by Disney, sometimes folks forget about the opportunity to dine with Chip and Dale, Goofy, or Pluto at the Garden Grove Restaurant. Character Dining is available at the Garden Grove each night during dinner as well as for breakfast on the weekends. Reservations can be made directly through the Disney website. 

Next time your venture to Disney World, take a look at one of these lesser-known off campus options for your Character Dining experience. The combination of characters, availability, and pricing is sure to add magic to your visit!
