Imagineering Some New Character Meals

Character meals are a great experience for both young and old.  It is a great place to meet a lot of characters in a short period of time while getting fed.  Some time back, I posted my top 5 Character Meals.

Create a Character Meal

In the vain of previous Dad For Disney games, I’m going to roll out a new one: Create a Character Meal

This game allows you to put on your Imagineering hat. You get to decide everything. The location, what characters are present, and even what and where the food will be served. You want to eat food from Via Napoli with Peter Pan, Wendy, Mr. Smee and Captain Hook at Columbia Harbor House. That’s fine. There is no out-of-bounds. All Disney characters are eligible. You can even bring in appetizers from one restaurant, entree from another restaurant, and dessert from a third.

The only boundary is your imagination. Have some fun this afternoon and create a Disney character meal of your very own.

What would dream character meal be?  Who would it include?  What would you eat and where?  Leave a comment on the blog or on the Dad For Disney Facebook page.
