WDW Character Meals
You should make reservations for at least one character meal during your WDW visit. Basically, you are paying for you and your children to get up close and personal with many Disney characters. Characters come around to all tables for hugs, autographs, and photos. Prices for character meals range from $18 to $23 per adult and $10 for children three to nine years old.
