This is one of our favorite character meals. The food is always fresh and the restaurant is very clean, service is very good. The attention to detail here, and at the whole park really, is amazing.

A 2pm reservation saw us seated at 230. That is too long to wait with reservations with children. That is my only complaint. The service was great, character interaction was lively and fun and the food was delicious with plenty of variety. The salads were...More
