The one and only character breakfast at the Walt Disney World (WDW) theme park is officially returning in March. Who else is excited?

Since fall 2020, park visitors have been able to enjoy modified character dining at Hollywood & Vine with Minnie’s Seasonal Dine, which only serves lunch and dinner.

But, now, all three meals will once again be served at the Table Service restaurant. Here’s everything you need to know, including which other character dining options across WDW are available to book.

First, and most important, you can make reservations beginning Friday, Feb. 26.

Which characters can you meet? Well, an official list wasn’t given at the time of the announcement, but usually diners can meet Vampirina, Fancy Nancy, Doc McStuffins, and Roadster Goofy.

There will also be an À la Carte menu with what sounds like some tasty dishes. You can try the following:

  • Caramel monkey bread and mini muffins
  • All-you-care-to-enjoy pancakes made with signature house-made batter
  • French toast stuffed with chocolate-hazelnut spread
  • Toasted open-faced salmon bagel
  • Four-egg scramble
  • Four-egg cheese omelet
  • Plant-based egg frittata

Now, remember, this is a modified character dining experience. This means that not only are the continued health and safety protocols implemented (like masks when stationary and eating), but characters do not give autographs or side-by-side photos.

Rather, you can take socially-distanced pictures with characters, as seen below.

If you’d like to know where else you can book character dining at WDW right now, go no further! There are only a few options, but they are still good ones.

They include:

Again, there are only a small number of character dining options available, but hopefully the return of Play n’ Dine is a good sign that more is to come!
