    Congratulations! We ate there for breakfast on our last rip. We enjoyed it a lot. Winnie the Pooh and friends were there also.

    Elyse, the Crystal Palace is at the end of Main Street on the left hand side. The meals are buffet style and feature the characters from Winnie the Pooh (Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore and Piglet). We always eat there on our first day at the parks. We prefer lunch, but have been for all three of the meals before. You can find the menus here:

    The restaurant itself is very pretty and is a great location for pictures due to all the natural lights from all the glass. I really think you will enjoy this!

    I think the characters are there for all meals.

    We have eaten there several times. It is really nice if you like the buffett style meal. Good selection for both kids and adults. Including PB&J on Rainbow Bread if you want. Great food and Great service...the Disney way.

    One tip for you...We always try to get a seating for about 4:00 to 4:30. And take your time eating. Really stuff yourself silly. That way you can get by with just eating a snack about 12:00, then lunch/dinner at 4:30, and then snacks and churros for "dinner". That's what we do. Just my $.02.

    This is a great place for the Winnie the Pooh lovers. We did last year and we are doing it again this year as well. The food good not great. But it is a great place to take the kids there to eat because there a lot to choose from and they get to see the 100 Acre wood gang.

    We got there every year for dinner. We get a seating around 6 - 6:30. That way, when we are done, we can stand in front of the restaurant and watch some of the parade and have a great place to view the fire works. This year we had a singing waiter, Michael, he was hilarious and really made the meal fun.

    My family loves this place. It is loud, and busy, but we love the visits with Pooh and friends, and for a buffet, find the food quite good. And the restaurant is lovely. Enjoy!
    I am in need of some Disney magic!!
