9. Crystal Palace—Location: Magic Kingdom—Main Street—Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
The Crystal Palace is just that, a crystal palace, brimming with light from the glass windows all around the dining areas. This exquisitely designed restaurant is reminiscent of the Victorian-style greenhouses of the late 1800’s, with topiaries and tropical palms everywhere you look. The décor and furnishings give the impression of what you would find in a turn of the century garden party. This whimsical dining experience includes a visit by such classic Disney characters as Winnie the Pooh, Eeyore, Tigger, and Piglet. These cute, cuddly characters will visit every table, interacting with children and parents in a delightfully charming way, as if they had just stepped out of the Hundred-Acre Wood. The kids really get a kick out of being silly with Tigger, shy with Eeyore, and lots of hugs for Winnie and Piglet. The elaborate buffets are all-you-can-eat style, and there are plenty of delectable choices to fill your plate. Here are some buffet choices: Breakfast: fresh fruit, cereals, pastries, potatoes, and other comfort food, including a scrambled egg and omelet station; Lunch: salads, carved meats, soups, freshly baked breads, fish and vegetables or pastas, and yummy desserts; Dinner: same as lunch, with a few extras, like spice-boiled shrimp, chicken, beef, fish, and vegetable creations, plus super luscious desserts. Come join some of the inhabitants of the Hundred-Acre Wood for a willy, nilly, silly good time.
