The Crystal Palace is a character dining location located over at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World!

As the sign indicates, The Crystal Palace is “A Buffet With Character” — in this case, Winnie the Pooh and all his friends!  Piglet, Tigger, and Eeyore (as well as Pooh) all come by to see you, and you can get your picture taken with them, get autographs, and even march in the parade with them!

Sophie has been drawn to the Crystal Palace since her early trips.  This restaurant is more often than not a mainstay in our Disney Dining planning.  We didn’t eat there on our last major trip, but something tells me we will eat there in June when we are on our vacation with our great friends!

While the Crystal Palace is just your standard buffet, there’s something about the restaurant that keeps drawing us back time and time again.  For starters, it is one of the few places to meet and get pictures with the gang from the Hundred Acre Woods.  Another thing that it’s got going for it is the incredible charm of the restaurant.  Take a look at some of these pictures and tell me what you think!

I think Pooh is always going to be Sophie’s favorite — the look says it all!

These pictures are from 2007, the first year that we stayed on property at Disney World.  We have also eaten there in 2008, 2009, and 2010 before taking a break in 2011.  For us, we love the Crystal Palace for so many more reasons than just the food.  For me, the beauty of the Crystal Palace is how we all are able to just spend a little time with our favorite childhood friends, and share a hug like the ones that Sophie has done in these pictures.  If you have never eaten at the Crystal Palace, I highly recommend that you give it a try!
