Winnie the Pooh and Friends are BACK at The Crystal Palace in Disney World!

The Crystal Palace has been open in Magic Kingdom for some time now, minus one special restaurant feature.

The Crystal Palace

We’re talking about characters!! Crystal Palace was once home to character dining with friends from the Hundred Acre Wood, including Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, and more, and they’re officially BACK!

Characters are BACK for lunch and dinner at The Crystal Palace! This Magic Kingdom restaurant serves a buffet of American foods like pasta, roasted carved meat, salads, and more, all in an 1800s Victorian greenhouse-designed space with a great view of Cinderella Castle, and now you can visit with Winnie the Pooh and his pals again while you eat!

We’re so excited to see that our friends from the Hundred Acre Wood are back! First, we saw Pooh

…who was walking around greeting everyone!


Then, we saw Eeyore!

Hi, friend!

He was looking a little sad, but that’s pretty normal for Eeyore.

He looks like he needs a hug!

We’ll keep an eye out for the other characters we see and update this post when we do, so stay tuned for more!

Characters will also return for breakfast on October 25th, 2022. Breakfast reservations open on September 22nd, so make sure to mark your calendar if you’re hoping to eat breakfast with Pooh! Reservations are recommended for the Crystal Palace for any meal, so make sure you schedule them as soon as you’re able to.
