If not for the characters here this would be rated one level down. Food is so so and the same every night so if you done this one, opt for a new experience.

Pooh and friends were amazing and really interacted with the children but unfortunately the food and service were not as good.

The food here was better than I remember it from our last trip. We really loved the clam chowder and the boiled shrimp!

However, the main attraction is Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Piglet and Eeyore. The character interactions are pretty good here. Not super rushed which is nice. Eeyore thought it was hilarious my daughter had a stuffed version of him and laughed about it and played with the stuffy for a few minutes. Times like that are super fun!!!

The kids buffet had excellent macaroni and cheese and we all had a bit of that.

I wish the dessert bar had a few more options but we all ended up with ice cream to top off our ridiculously full stomachs from the buffet.

It's pretty pricey, however, so be prepared. For two adults and one kid after tip is about $150. It's fun and worth it if you are craving character interaction and a cool air conditioned place to rest your feet and fill your tummy.

We will return.

Our second visit to the Crystal Palace, this time for breakfast. I have to say I preferred it to dinner. Great choice of breakfast items and Characters were able to spend a little more time with the guests than dinner.
Yes it's a lot of money for a buffet but it's the only place you can meet piglet and eeyore.
Will return again and again!

I will let you in on a Disney secret, get a reservation before the park opens!! Bask in an empty park and a very full belly. This was truly a treat! Reservations prior to the park opening was a wonderful treat, not to mention the food served at the Crystal Palace . This was the day before the hurricane was set to strike , and the crowds where low . The staff super friendly and the manager eager to please . The characters where Pooh, Tigger, Eyore and Piglet . All my children where screaming to meet ! Each made their round more than once and my children where delighted !
The food was amazing . lox and cream cheese , fruit salads , bacon , sausage , biscuits and gravy, eggs , even banana pudding was there for your indulgence . My children are very well, on fruits and meats and even the pudding ! It truly was a wonderful treat :)
