The meals are also a character meal that feature some of your Mousekatot’s favorite pals including Chip, Dale, Pluto and the big cheese himself, Mickey Mouse.

Make sure that if you are celebrating something to let your server know. We went here on our honeymoon and we received a “Marriage License” autographed by all the characters. It was truly a magical experience.

Even though The Garden Grill offers a wide variety of foods, all-you-can-eat, and is a character meal, it is often overlooked when it comes to places to eat on property,

If you are on the dining plan, the meal is one table service credit. If you are paying out of pocket, it is $15-$34.99 and  $35 to $59.99 per adult.
