Vote of the week: What's the best meal for character dining?
Written by Robert Niles
Character dining provides a great way to multitask on a theme park visit. Shell out the extra bucks for a character meal and you can take care of two tasks at once - eating a meal and seeing some of your favorite characters.Tweet
(I mean, your kids' favorite characters. Right.)
But when to enjoy your character meal? Do you book a character breakfast, and ensure that you'll meet your favorite characters right away? Or does booking what might be the highlight of the day for some kids (or adults) make the rest of the day seem too anticlimactic?
What about dinner, then? But what happens if you meet those characters in the park earlier in the day? Does that make the character meal less special, and not worth the extra cost?
That leaves lunch. But do you really want to spend all that potential ride time stuck in a restaurant?
Let's put it up for a vote, then. And after you vote, please click the link to comment and tell us about your dream character experience. Who would the characters be? The restaurant? Would there be a show, or just walk-around characters? And if you've already been to a character meal that you'd consider perfect, let us know about that instead.
