There may also be a few disadvantages to character dining. For one, they are not cheap. All of the character meals are fixed-price, with adult prices range from about $35 -65, plus tip. While there are more expensive meals at Disney World, character dining is not the way to go if you are on a strict budget.
Your options for dinner are 1900 Park Fare, Chef Mickey’s, The Crystal Palace, Cinderella’s Royal Table, Garden Grill, Hollywood and Vine, and Tusker House. Of these options, 1900 Park Fare is the least expensive meal . Here you can see Cinderella, Prince Charming, and the evil stepmother and stepsisters.

The Verdict We saw plenty of the characters during our time in the theme parks and really didn’t have a need to pay for a character dining package just to have time with the characters . For some families, especially those with a princess obsessed little girl, the character dining could be worth every penny.
If you want an authentic in-castle dining experience or a character meal, choose Cinderella’s Royal Table . If you want a meal that more or less captures the essence of Beauty and the Beast or you’re simply on a tighter budget, choose Be Our Guest Restaurant.
UPDATED September 25, 2020 : Disney is actively making progress towards the worldwide closures and reopenings of their theme parks. The theme parks of the Disneyland Resort have been closed since March 14, 2020 due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.
But, Disney has recently announced that Park Hopping will be returning, with some modifications, in 2021 . So, it seems Disney is very much aware of the things that have been discontinued in the parks and may be looking at ways to bring some of them back. It’s possible that FastPass+ is on that list for consideration.
As Walt Disney World continues its phased reopening process, the Contemporary Resort has now welcomed guests back and with it, Chef Mickey’s is once again operating. However, unlike Garden Grill at Epcot and Topolino’s Terrace at Riviera Resort, Chef Mickey’s is not offering a modified character meal.
At Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek , guests can now enjoy more time for family fun with Disney’s Extra Magic Hours benefit.
