A Guide To Every Disney Character Meal In The USA (WDW, DL & Aulani) (Updated 02/19)

The first time I ever went to a character meal at a Disney park was Walt Disney World, in February 1979. At the time, WDW had 1 park, 3 hotels (Golf Resort anyone? Beuller? Beuller?), a shopping area and a campground. That’s it. Oh, and a golf course or two (but I didn’t play golf, so…) Anyway, I know we went to Minnie’s Menehune Breakfast at the Polynesian Resort Hotel during that trip but still and all, character dining options were pretty limited. Although I didn’t make it to Disneyland until the mid-1990s, I know the same story hold true; it was years before there was a variety of character meals to choose from.

Prince CharmingTimes have changed since then and there are nearly 20 character dining options at WDW alone, to the point that if you have a particular character you want to have breakfast with, you practically can (*cough* especially if you want to eat with princesses or one or more of the Fab Five *cough*).

Here are the current character meals available at Disneyland (California), Walt Disney World (Florida) and Aulani Resort (Hawaii). Please note that although there are other meals that have characters at times (i.e. “Be Our Guest”), Disney does not include them as “character meals” on their websites, therefore neither have we on this page ;-). Remember that all character appearances are subject to change.

One Of The Latest On Instagram? A Site Devoted To Rating Airplane Food

Airplane food is nothing like it was in days gone by, but it’s still something we (kinda sorta, sometimes) enjoy. Maybe it’s because it’s a welcome break while spending hours on the plane, or because it’s food you won’t find on land (and most of the time that’s probably a good thing), but whether it’s something from the snack cart or a full meal with real silverware in first class, it’s still something people generally look forward to, even when you know it’s usually not going to be very good. I guess that’s why the website that can tell you what will be served on your flight is so popular.

On the rare occasions that Joe and I fly business or first class, we almost always take a picture of the meal. We’ve been doing it for much longer than we’ve had this blog – usually just for the memory of what we ate. A lot of people were apparently doing the same thing, so Henry Wu, originally from Chicago, took that one step further and started an Instagram site devoted entirely to what’s served at 35,000 feet.
