Under an airy Victorian-style skylight canopy that emulates a hall from an 1853 New York City world’s exhibition, Winnie the Pooh greets diners at what’s probably the prettiest in-park restaurant in all of Walt Disney World. The refined air doesn’t stop Pooh and his buddies (Tigger, Eeyore, Piglet) from jamming the aisles with a conga line. Being slightly smaller than many other character dining locations, you’re likely to get some face time with the characters. This restaurant’s been open since Day One and offers three daily all-you-can-eat buffets of changing, crowd-pleasing standards from meats to vegetables. There’s a make-your-own-sundae bar for lunch and dinner. Prices are lowest at breakfast (the best time anyway, since you’ll have the rest of your day free) and scale up. Characters are careful to make an appearance at every table, so don’t worry about missing out. The glassy Victorian setting is a boon, too. If you can’t get into Cinderella’s Royal Table, this is a worthy substitute. Main Street, U.S.A. Buffet $25 to $38 adults, $14 to $18 children.
