Garden Grill Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Harvest Feast Character Meal Review

As lines for Walt Disney World character meet and greets grow, a character dining experience like Garden Grill Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Harvest Feast is a great way to save time by combining meals and favorite characters. See why the food and character experience at Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Harvest Feast exceeded our expectations.

Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Harvest Feast Location

Find Garden Grill at Epcot inside The Land Pavilion. Garden Grill overlooks the Living with the Land ride and is on the upper floor at the back of the building opposite from the entrance. Scenes from the ride on the lower level make a cool backdrop while dining.

Epcot’s Garden Grill Restaurant

Garden Grill is a unique, slowly rotating restaurant that offers character meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. The restaurant rotates very slowly with one rotation taking over an hour.

The seating at a Garden Grill character meal is broken into two areas: a lower section with booths facing out and an upper layer of tables.

The booths are really cool when overlooking Living with the Land, but can feel exposed when facing the main walkways. Tables on the upper level don’t provide views of the attraction below, but feel more like a traditional restaurant.

Outside booths make the rotation more obvious, but the inside table movement is almost impossible to notice. Although the movement feels a little odd at first I didn’t have any motion sickness issues.

Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Harvest Feast Menu

Many character meals are buffets, but Garden Grill Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Harvest Feast is served family-style in faux cast iron pans.

Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Harvest Feast Breakfast

Breakfast platters have breakfast pastries, fresh fruit, Mickey waffles, backyard grilled steak with ranchero sauce, bacon, scrambled eggs, and skillet potatoes.

There’s also a plant-based breakfast platter and allergy-friendly options designed for guests with gluten, egg, fish/shellfish, milk, peanut/tree nut, sesame or soy allergies.

Those with a less common food allergy, like my daughter before outgrowing her corn allergy, may struggle at Garden Grill. At that time our chef said Garden Grill has a limited kitchen and supplies compared to other restaurants. This means finding unique substitutions can be challenging.

Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Harvest Feast Lunch and Dinner Menu

On our most recent Garden Grill character meal we tried lunch, which is the same menu as dinner. Start your meal with cornbread, honey butter, and harvest-inspired garden salad. Kids can choose carrots and celery with ranch as an appetizer.

The main course is better quality than I expected. Roasted turkey breast, gravy, mashed potatoes, grilled steak, green beans, seasonal vegetables, plus mac and cheese provide a tasty and hearty meal.

Backyard grilled flank steak with chimichurri sauce, thin sliced and tender, was our surprise favorite. However, we enjoyed everything and our portion size was perfect.

Chip ‘n’ Dale Plant Based Harvest Feast is available for vegetarians. Plant-based menu items include salad, carrots and celery, mashed potatoes, green beans, seasonal vegetables, smoked “sausage”, and pulled “pork”.

We tried the pulled “pork” which is actually made of jack fruit. Although the texture is different from meat the flavor is similar to a vinegar-based sauce pulled pork.

Guests with common food allergies have several allergy-friendly options for lunch and dinner.

Finish your meal with a farmer’s seasonal pie, in our case a skillet apple pie with vanilla ice cream. Served warm it was a delicious end to our feast. Kids can choose a farmer Mickey cupcake which is chocolate cake, buttercream frosting, and cookies ‘n cream crumbles.

Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Harvest Feast Characters

There are generally four characters at Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Harvest Feast at Garden Grill: Chip, Dale, Pluto, and Mickey Mouse. The characters make their way around the restaurant stopping at each table to interact with guests and sign autographs.

Budget about an hour for all of the characters to stop by your table. We actually saw each character once and a couple twice before our meal was over.


Chip is always extremely sweet with hugs for everyone and insisted on taking pictures with everyone including my hesitant mom.

Pro tip: You can identify Chip by his small black nose. Some say his nose resembles a chocolate chip.

Dale is Chip’s silly sidekick and our interactions with him are quite funny. When autographing he seems so proud of his work despite always writing the “e” in his name backwards.

I also asked Dale to pose in front of the Living with the Land farm house. Instead of posing he insisted it was for sale and tried to get us to buy this iconic attraction.

Pro tip: Dale’s big red nose makes him easy to distinguish from Chip.

I always look forward to seeing this sweet pup. Pluto’s nose is so large he uses it as a desk when signing his autographs. Notice Pluto’s cute bandanna collar which is not the one he usually wears around the parks, but is exclusive to Garden Grill.

Mickey Mouse

Previously at Garden Grill we had one of our sillier interactions with Mickey. After signing my daughter’s autograph item Mickey kept pretending to hand the marker back but then moving it just out of reach each time she grabbed for it. This gave us the giggles.

On a recent visit Mickey, dressed in overalls and a plaid shirt, leisurely leaned on the railing to “talk” to us before taking pictures together.
