If your child loves Winnie the Pooh you will not want to miss this lunch with Winnie the Pooh and his friends at Walt Disney World.

img 5465Add some magic to your next Disney World trip by having lunch with Winnie the Pooh and his friends at The Crystal Palace!

My daughter had so much fun at this lunch. She was three years old at the time, so of course we were big fans of Winnie the Pooh.

The Crystal Palace is an airy, whimsical restaurant conveniently located right off of Main Street, U.S.A. right inside the Magic Kingdom. It provided the perfect backdrop to meet Pooh Bear and his friends from the 100 Acre Wood without having to stand in line.

Unlike, Meagan who is too frugal to do this stuff, I 100% recommend character meals. They are the perfect way to take a break from walking, lines, and heat without having to miss any of the Disney magic. They also give you the chance to meet the characters without having to wait in line! Meagan takes her kids to see them over at the Animal Kingdom. She swears this is the best place to see Winnie the Pooh, Tiger, and Eeyore without paying for a character meal because the lines are always short.

*Make reservations early when you plan your trip so you don’t miss out! Reservations can be made up to 180 days before. Lunch costs $15-34.99 and dinner costs $35-59.99 per person.  The Disney Dining plan can be used for this lunch experience.

Lunch With Pooh Bear and Friends

Lunch is a buffet-style to suit everyone in your party’s appetite. They even had a couple of stations just for kids featuring “kid” food: Mac ‘n cheese, chicken nuggets, etc. Each group gets its own waiter to take care of drinks and anything else you might need. Our waiter was so nice and even took a few pictures for us!

Pooh Bear, Tigger, Eeyore, and Piglet take turns, stopping by your table. Each character spent quite a bit of time interacting with my daughter and taking photos which I really appreciated. They also give out autographs if your kiddo likes getting those! It was incredibly cute and they even made the rounds twice. She kept hugging them and giving out lots of high fives! Her favorite character to meet was Tigger, but I’m pretty sure she loved them all.

Near the end of lunch, all the kids get to join in a little parade around the restaurant with Pooh Bear and friends! The kids got really into dancing around the restaurant with all of the characters.

Get Travel Insurance

Unfortunately, there are a lot of things that can go wrong on any trip. Be prepared for the worst with travel insurance. We use Travelex or Safety Wing (often cheaper).

Book Flights

I use Skyscanner to find flights. I use it so much, I wrote an entire guide to finding cheap flights with Skyscanner!

Book a Place to Stay

I recommend using Expedia.com or Hotels.com for most hotel bookings. I prefer to book directly with Marriott when I stay there because of their excellent military discount.

If you prefer staying in a vacation rental instead, I recommend VRBO.

Rent Clothes

Rent clothes for your trip with Travel Style Expert for only $50 a month! The first 30 days are free!

Choose Activities and Tours

To find great activities in any area I use Get Your Guide and Viator. If we are visiting a city with lots of popular attractions I always check CityPass and GoCard to see if they have discount cards available. Groupon also tends to have a lot of local travel deals.

When I want to book a full-on multi-day tour I use TourRadar. They’ve got fantastic weekly deals. If I am going somewhere in Mexico or the Caribbean I use Apple Vacations.

Rent a Car or Take a Lyft

More often than not Lyft is cheaper than Uber. Use my Lyft link for an $18 credit! For a car rental in any country, I recommend Hertz or Discover Cars.
