Characters Are Returning to Crystal Palace in Magic Kingdom

Slowly but surely, Disney World began resuming normal operations after the park closures.

Cinderella Castle!

We recently saw the return of traditional meet and greets throughout the parks, and even MORE characters are returning soon. Character dining has returned to normal as well, although not all character dining spots have come back just yet. But, Disney just announced that more character dining is returning to a popular Magic Kingdom spot soon, and we’ve got all the details!

Get ready for a trip to the Hundred Acre Wood, because The Crystal Palace: A Buffet with Characters featuring Winnie the Pooh and Friends is coming back to the Magic Kingdom!

Crystal Palace

Beginning on September 20th, 2022, guests can enjoy both lunch and dinner surrounded by the greenhouse-inspired decor and Winnie the Pooh and Friends at the Crystal Palace. In the past, we’ve seen Pooh, Tigger, and Piglet, but Disney hasn’t yet confirmed who will be at this character dining experience.


The Crystal Palace will be serving up items like Carved Prime Rib, Seasonal Ravioli, and Peel & Eat Shrimp!

We’ll keep an eye out for more details, but for now, mark your calendars for September 20th if you want to dine with Winnie the Pooh and Friends. You can make reservations in the My Disney Experience app! Be sure to stay tuned to AllEars for the latest Disney news.
