The buffet has so many options and is neat and clean. The characters from Winnie the Pooh are at this location. They are personable and go around to each table letting you have autographs and pictures. I really love their different types of food options and it is a great spot at the front of the Magic Kingdom!

Much better food than expected, especially the desserts! The character interactions were really great. Fun for all ages, not just little ones (there were actually two bachelorette parties at Crystal Palace while we were there). Probably the second best Disney character meal we've done (behind only the princess lunch at Cinderella's Castle we did 5 years ago). We would definitely... More

The buffett was not expansive but everything there was good. The characters showed up twice during our dinner and were great making themselves available for pics. Although reservations seem to be advisable, while we were waiting for our time slot, many families were walking up and only waiting 10 minutes. That was a thursday though... As an added bonus they...

I'm not a Disney fanatic and being childless, have missed out on much of the "magic" of Disney. But I accompanied my sister and friend for lunch here last week. Met Pooh, Tigger, Piglet and Eeyore and honestly it was amazing to watch the little ones around us being absolutely enthralled by the characters! As for the actual food, I... More

We couldn't be happier. the food was on par, the service was exceptional. We miss Lisa our "cast member" already. We did not fell rushed like the other places and it was a fun character meal. Bring kids Pooh and the gang may just show up! ;)

The food was very good and the carving station had turkey and flank steak both of which were excellent. Food topped off by visits from Pooh and his friends

Bacon and sausage, make your own omelets - they were good. The philly cheesesteak egg mix was awful, biscuits and gravy no the best, scrambled eggs were over cooked - they got rid of the breakfast lasagne which was like a fruit pastry bake. Very expensive if you are going just for food and to get in the park before... More

As with any sit down Disney restaurant you will need reservations well in advance of traveling. My wife usually books months in advance and sometimes even then seating times are limited. Once there you will enjoy a large buffet where you are sure to find something for everyone. The Disney characters move through the restaurant visiting each table and giving... More

I went with my sister for our big birthday celebration. We did wait for some time but that did not stop us from admiring the beauty of Cinderella's castle set to a beautiful blue sky. As we were seated we started with the buffet which included meeting the characters of 100 Acre Wood (Winnie the Pooh) it was so cute... More

This restaurant is so worth the money! I'm always hesitant about buffets, but all of the food was warm and delicious! They had a large selection of food items for both adults and children. I also really enjoyed the ambiance and beautiful decor. The added benefit of meeting Winnie the Pooh and friends is the icing on the cake. I... More
