Dining at 1900 Park Fair

Many people come to Walt Disney World to meet their favorite characters, and we are just the same. We have found that dining with the characters allows you to meet and interact with characters and get a good meal to boot. On location that offers two character meals each day is 1900 Park Fair at the Grand Floridian--breakfast and dinner--both buffet style.

The easiest way to find 1900 Park Fair is to take the monorail to the Grand Floridian, unless you are fortunate enough to be staying there. Once you exit the monorail, go forward into the grand lobby. You are now on the second floor of the grand lobby. The elevators are to the left and the stairs are to the right. Either way down is OK. Just know that when you come into the grand lobby, 1900 Park Fair would be to the left, just one floor down.

Characters at breakfast have some variance, but typically include at least one Winnie the Pooh character. On they day we were there, both Pooh and Tigger were about. To read more about where to find Winnie the Pooh characters, click here.
Also on hand at breakfast were Mary Poppins, Alice, and the Mad Hatter.




Breakfast is fast paced, noisy, and fun! The Mad Hatter enjoys making jokes and it is great that he and Alice circulate throughout the restaurant together.
Dinner at 1900 Park Fair has a different feel. There is more pomp and circumstance as royalty are on the line-up. Again, the meal is served buffet style. At first, the Tremain Family joins your table. If you haven't met the Tremain's, there is Lady Tremain, mother to Anastasia and Drizella and step-mother to Cinderella. Once the Tremain Family has circulated, the music flares and out come Cinderella and Prince Charming for a lovely dance around the restaurant. Guests are invited to join the dance. . . so the boy and I joined.







Ah, two princes!






Two mothers, but which one is wicked?


Dining at 1900 Park Fair can be a lovely treat. The food is tasty and satisfying. Just be careful not to leave your seat as the characters are about to approach. If you miss them, it could be another hour or more before they pass your table again. The atmosphere is whimsical and lovely. The characters provide much interaction which is nice and there is a variety of characters at the meals, some of which you may not find easily in the parks. For that reason only, plan to dine at least one time at 1900 Park Fair.
