I’ve had character dining on my mind lately, reminiscing about the days when my children went to the buffet with Goofy and when Stitch stole my son’s pancake in a hilarious little game they had. It has me thinking about the characters available at dining opportunities in Walt Disney World and the ones I would like to see. We’ve tackled this subject before, reviewing which characters would make for some epic new experiences at the parks, but I thought we might take this a step further. Let’s play a little game, shall we?
If you could choose any character across all the Disney horizons, I’m talking Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and everything in between; who would you invite to dinner? Don’t just give me a name on this one; I also want to hear the rationale behind it. Would it be a group setting sharing laughs with Mickey or a quiet booth for two sharing dark secrets and strategies with Darth Vader?
Choose one Disney Character to invite to dinner, and tell us why you chose them.
While others might think the obvious answer will be Mickey or Minnie Mouse, my sights are set a little further afield. I’d love to have dinner with Genie from Aladdin, hearing all about the places he has been, the crazy wishes that have been granted, and maybe even score a bonus one of my own? No harm in trying, right?
