As I've probably mentioned before, one of the special things you can do while at Walt Disney World is to pick a few very special restaurants to enjoy your meals and dining with Disney characters is a very special thing to do. Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom park is not only beautiful architecturally but a wonderful place to eat breakfast, lunch or dinner buffet style. The very pleasant interior design is warm and welcoming and comfortable, there are always special flower arrangements or displays which follow the seasons. There is a very large variety of food choices for all meals served here, but the lunch and dinner offerings are really special, and everyone should find something they like.

Try the Mickey-shaped waffles for breakfast along with some of your favorite American breakfast classics. For lunch you will find everything from appetizers to salads, to entrees and all types of desserts. You'll have to try a little of everything in that department IF you have any space left in your stomach after you've had one of the following: citrus marinated flank steak, BBQ tenderloin, flame roasted chicken, Atlantic salmon, green Thai chicken curry, vegetable pasta, pizza, etc. I'm sure you'll have room for Chocolate Marble Cheesecake, Mango Flan, Double Chocolate Brownies, Tres Leches Cake, Apple Cobbler, Banana Bread Pudding with Bailey's Irish Cream Sauce, soft-serve ice cream, etc., etc.,


Breakfast Buffet is served 8 - 10:30 am; $18.99 for adults; $10.99 for children 3 - 9
Lunch Buffet is served 11:30 - 3pm; $20.99 for adults; $11.99 for children 3-9
Dinner Buffet is served 4pm to park closing; $27.99 for adults; $12.99 for children 3-9

Favorite Dish: You wouldn't particularly call the food here gourmet, but they do a very nice job of offering a well-rounded menu and very good food. Reservations are strongly recommended and I can tell you from experience you will definitely need reservations unless you are prepared to wait for a while to get in.

Disney characters from Winnie the Pooh
and most all of Winnie the Pooh 's friends such as my favorite, "Tigger" they will come around to delight your children, and you too! Love those Mickey Waffles!!

    Sylvia! You will have to stop these food descriptions, especially seeing I have just had boring cereal for breakfast!
