4. Ensure that character dining is a suitable option for your party.
Not every group will enjoy character dining. If your group includes sticklers that would rather not clown around with characters and would prefer to focus solely on their meal, character dining may not be the best value. Now that there are no more small children in my family we often skip character dining for some other delicious Disney dining options. Opting out of character dining could be the right move for some travel parties and there is no shame in that game!
