More character dining will be returning to Walt Disney World this fall at ‘Ohana, Cape May Café, and The Crystal Palace.

The Crystal Palace

Mark September 20 on your calendar as the date that “The Crystal Palace: A Buffet with Characters featuring Winnie the Pooh and Friends” returns for lunch and dinner at Magic Kingdom.

Enjoy dishes like Carved Prime Rib, Seasonal Ravioli, and Peel & Eat Shrimp with your favorite friends from the Hundred Acre Wood.

A park reservation and valid admission for the same park on that same date are required in addition to the dining reservation for The Crystal Palace.
