Three of the most popular character dining experiences are coming back to Walt Disney World (with hugs too). Find out where and when in this week's episode of the Disney Travel News Podcast, your 15 minutes of Disney magic.
If you want a hug with your meal, you're in luck as several character-dining experiences are getting ready to bring back Disney characters. Here's what we know about which restaurants are bringing back characters and when they're reopening.
Magic Kingdom Park
The ‘Ohana Best Friends Breakfast featuring Lilo and Stitch is a worthwhile breakfast experience and it's scheduled to return on September 27, 2022. According to Disney, you'll be able to once again get some hugs while you feast on dishes like the Pineapple Coconut Breakfast Bread and Mickey Waffles and sip on the iconic Lilikoi Juice and Moana Smoothie.
Cape May Café, a New-England inspired dining room, is an all-you-care-to-enjoy buffet and it will be back with characters on October 4, 2022 for the Cape May Café Minnie’s Beach Bash Breakfast. In the past, this one has featured Minnie, Goofy and more friends and is a fun way to start the day. There's lot of great food from which to choose, including Salted Caramel Beach Buns and of course Mickey and Minnie Waffles.
Parties will take place at both Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World.
