Garden Grill - Inside of Epcot's The Land Pavilion is a semi-hidden character dining gem, Garden Grill. This restaurant features Mickey Mouse, Pluto, Chip, and Dale in their best farming gear as they serve up homestyle food, family style. We had breakfast here and delighted in the character interaction and the delicious food. As someone who travels a lot with small kids, the fact that breakfast is served family style is a nice touch so I don't have to juggle kids at the buffet. Another unique aspect of this restaurant is the fact that it is circular and rotates through the Living with the Land ride. This dining experience is not as crowded as others which meant that the characters really took their time at each table - and farmer Mickey Mouse is adorable! A great tip is to book a character breakfast here before the park opens and you can be among the first in line for popular attractions like Soarin' when you have finished eating.

There are so many places to meet Mickey on your vacation, that it's easy to follow Walt's advice and never forget "that it was all started by a mouse." Happy 88th Birthday Mickey Mouse! See ya real soon, pal!
