2. Should your family do a traditional, pre-plated dining or buffet option?
Character dining is often associated with buffets at Walt Disney World. While the buffets are certainly impressive there are plenty of pre-plated and traditional deluxe dining options with characters as well. Traditional deluxe dining options allow guests to order off a menu but still enjoy character interactions; princess dining at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Epcot is a great example. Pre-plated meals can be the perfect fit for families with small children. Restaurants like Garden Grill in Epcot or Ohana character breakfast offers bottomless options that offers the volume of a buffet without necessitating small children travel to a crowded buffet with a parent to serve their plate.
