Would your little princess like to meet Cinderella, plus her entire family? 1900 Park Fare located within the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa offers a wonderful character dining experience for just 1 table service credit.

This meal has plenty of perks. For starters you will be dining within one of Disney’s finest resorts. A little upscale for most park goers, but definitely worth a walk around the lobby and grounds of the Grand Floridian before or after you dine. 1900 Park Fare is a buffet style meal, so plan on eating all you can enjoy from yummy salads, two-three meat choices and plenty of desserts. Not to mention the famous Strawberry Soup, which you can only treat yourself to at this restaurant!

{we promise it is really good!}

Throughout your meal you’ll be treated to visits by Cinderella, Prince Charming, Anatasia, Drizella, Lady Tremaine/Fairy Godmother. Usually Lady Tremaine and the Fairy Godmother are not present on the same nights. The step sisters are in true character, as is their mother. Don’t be alarmed when they tell your daughter her Cinderella gown is atrocious!

A photo opportunity is also available before you are seated. Sometimes Cinderella or the Fairy Godmother are present for the picture. This is not included in the meal, so if you’d like to have these pictures there is an extra charge.

When we arrived for our dining reservations we were seated right away, but near the door for entering and exiting the dining hall. We asked to be moved since we had several young children in our party. The cast member accommodated us with no problem. The food was wonderful and there were lots of things to choose from: Ceasar salad, several pasta salads, chicken stew, prime rib–just to name a few. The kids station had corn, cheese pizza, and mac n cheese. There was also a great fresh fruit station available. We left room for dessert and there were several choices there also: brownies, cookies, and a variety of mini cakes.

If you are not staying at the Grand Floridian you may be wondering about transportation to 1900 Park Fare. If you are visiting Magic Kingdom just hop on the monorail (or ferry). If you are at any other park take the bus to Magic Kingdom then get on the monorail. If you are at your resort you can take a bus to Magic Kingdom, then take the bus, monorail, or ferry to the Grand Floridian. If you prefer you can take a taxi for around a $10ish fare from any of the resorts. Allot yourself at least 45 minutes of travel time if you choose to use Disney’s transportation.

All in all we give this character meal two thumbs up. The food is great and the characters are a must see. The only negative is the noise level. This is a large dining hall with lots of people and movement. Perfect for those dining with children, maybe not so great for couples.
