PLEASE NOTE: The Crystal Palace currently features a new meal served family-style for lunch and dinner during its initial reopening, and Disney characters are not greeting guests. You can read our review of the updated dining experience at The Crystal Palace here.
Below we have also kept information on the typical experience at The Crystal Palace for your future planning reference, and we will continue to update this page accordingly.
Though there is a new dining experience without characters during the restaurant’s initial reopening, The Crystal Palace is usually my favorite place to see all of my Hundred Acre Wood friends — Pooh, Eeyore, Piglet, and Tigger! We will update this page accordingly if character dining returns to this location. In the meantime, you can find the current list of Character Meals here.
The Crystal Palace features a stunning location: a building in the middle of the Magic Kingdom resembling England’s Crystal Palace, which was erected in Hyde Park to house the Great Exhibition of 1851.
