Character Dining to Return to Crystal Palace Breakfast at Magic Kingdom

Crystal Palace character breakfast

Walt Disney World has announced that character dining with Pooh and Friends will return to the Crystal Palace at Magic Kingdom for breakfast, joining a previous announcement of their return for lunch and dinner.

While the restaurant has been open for dining, the characters have been absent since the restaurant reopened from the pandemic closure.

Here’s what you need to know about the 100 Acre pals return:


The newest announcement says that Pooh and his friends will return for character dining breakfast at Crystal Palace starting October 25, 2022.

Start your day off with Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, and Tigger as you enjoy a buffet breakfast. I’ve done it, and it’s a lot of fun, especially in the beautiful and elegant Victorian-theming of the restaurant.

Reservations for breakfast with Winnie the Pooh and friends are available beginning September 22, 2022, according to Walt Disney World.

Lunch and Dinner

Can’t wait until October to see the characters? As we told you this summer, “The Crystal Palace: A Buffet with Characters featuring Winnie the Pooh and Friends” will return for lunch and dinner at Crystal Palace next week on September 20, 2022.

Enjoy a buffet with dishes like Carved Prime Rib, Seasonal Ravioli, and Peel & Eat Shrimp while the characters mingle and meet everyone. And yes, photos are encouraged.

Reservations are currently available for lunch and dinner.
