Character meals are an integral part of any Disney vacation. After all, who can resist eating a meal with their favorite Disney friends while in the happiest place on earth?
That said, many people have a hard time choosing the character meal that is best for them. The resort offers plenty of options, and considering the cost of one of these meals, you will want to be sure to choose the ideal meal for you and your family. This leaves many guests feeling overwhelmed.
Of course, you could go the obvious route and pick one of the two in-park character dining options. However, this isn’t always the best way to go. The in-park options tend to become more crowded more quickly, and because of this, they don't always offer the same amount of character interaction as their out-of-park counterparts. Therefore, we highly recommend considering an out-of-park character meal on your next Disneyland Resort vacation.
Where do you find these out-of-park options? In the Disneyland Resort Hotels, of course! Each of the three Disney-owned lodging options offers a character meal, and each one is a unique experience.
In order to help you decide which resort hotel character experience is best for you, we have outlined the three options below. Read on to learn more about each of these meal choices.
