The experience was fantastic but we didn't get our free photo that was promised.
Limo ride was good sharing with two other goups. Downtown Disney drop was a long way from the shops so be prepared to walk. Dinner at Chef Mickeys was up to the normal Disney standard. Driver was in a noticable hurry to drop everyone after picking up from the restaurant. Be warned that this is an early pick up, 1.15pm for us and an early dinner 5pm. Overall a very good experience and would do it again for a special occasion.
The limo arrived on time, the driver was pleasant and interacted with the children . The schedule was rushed , however, being in Davenport may be the reason for that. Food quality was excellent, and characters were patient. It is a great memory for the children .
The overall experience was excellent and the girls throughly enjoyed themselves. A couple of moans i have is that when confirming the booking on arriving in Orlando, i was told that they were not able to collect is from our destination as this was to far. On booking i had checked and double checked the itinery and that we could be picked up from where we were staying. A second phone call the next day said it was not a problem, could have done without the hassle of this!! Plus we had not drunk all our champagne and the bottle had gone after visiting downtown disney.
Our Disney Character Dinner was wonderful. We took our whole family--there were nine of us. Did their eyes ever light up when the limo pulled into our resort. The limo picked us up at the time they said they would. We even had champagne, which we didn't expect. The dinner was delicious and all the characters gave us plenty of time to take pictures The picture our driver took of our family by the limo is really a nice memento. The only down side was with the scheduling of the dinner. I checked on-line to see which dates of our vacation were available. The website showed availability on the 26th, 27th, and 28th of October. I called and scheduled the 28th, gave my charge card info, and was given a confirmation number . Done deal right. No! The next evening I'm checking my e-mail around 10:00 pm (pretty busy getting ready for vacation) and I find an e-mail stating there are no openings for the 28th--website still shows availability. I call and, of course, it is too late, however, there may be availability on the 29th. I am told they will call me back the next day at 8:00 am. No call. I finally call and to make a long story short, we were able to book the 29th.
My grandchildren really enjoyed the experience but I do not think 1 hour 15 minutes to eat is long enough. Choice of food excellent but with the excitement of the characters visiting the table the boys aged 5 and 6 didnt really have time to eat much and were requesting food within 1 hour of being picked up. The Limo was exciting for them but again was not told that there were going to be others picked up so the half bottle of champers that we saved for the second part of our journeywas either thrown or removed for when we got back in the limo.
