Another buffet experience is returning to Walt Disney World! Starting today, September 12, the all-you-care-to-enjoy buffet is returning to The Crystal Palace at Magic Kingdom! This dining spot is a magically wonderful experience and if you have never been prepare to be dazzled. The Crystal Palace is inspired by Victorian greenhouses of the late 1800s. It brims with light, topiaries and tropical palms. It’s an enchanting spot to dine in the heart of Magic Kingdom park with views of Cinderella Castle and Main Street, U.S.A.

Normally The Crystal Palace is a character dining experience where friends from the Hundred Acre Wood mozy on over for a visit, however due to the pandemic this is one spot where characters have not returned quite just yet. We are hoping Disney makes an announcement on characters returning to this location soon!
