Character Meals in Walt Disney World can be a tricky thing to figure out. Luckily, Erin Foster created a great breakdown to help you decide exactly which character meal is going to fit your family’s needs! The focus of this page is on the variety of food and serving style offered at each character meal, so if you value maximizing your food choices (especially if you have a picky eater), this is for you!
Here the delineations are between All-You-Care-to-Enjoy Pre-Plated meals (served Family Style) where there is no choice of food outside of Special Diet requests, Prix-Fixe Menu meals, and Buffets where there are dozens of options.
