i agree - I just can't see the majority of people paying premium price for a buffet without characters.

I was going to add to our plus vouchers for a character dinner there on our first night, but looks like I won't be doing that, and the only other character dining experience we'd be interested in is Plaza gardens breakfast. But thats pretty expensive for what it is too, and I can't use any dining vouchers for that. Its all a bit meh now isn't it?

That is a dreadful decision! The food at Inventions is superb but not worth the price they are charging if there are no characters. And with Cafe Mickey closing that would mean no character meals in the evening at all. I really can't believe that is the case.

I would absolutely love to be wrong on this occasion! I couldn't find any references to it here on anywhere else either so I thought I must be reading it wrong hence why I called.

I then asked if we can get a refund on our premium half board meal plan as they are now not offering what I originally booked for and I can't even get a full refund! 😕 When I originally booked she said we could do character dinners every night if we wanted to!

It seems like a really stupid thing to do IMO... That means less time in the actual park as it would be spent doing a proper sit down lunch.

I have been checking other sites and cannot find it confirmed anywhere.

I appears that you can not book dinner as part of your package, though you can book lunch and brunch. You can only book dinner 60 days before arrival.

But nothing about characters leaving Inventions, only Caf Mickey.

In the brochure in the dining section of the Disneyland Hotel description it says

"Inventions: elegant international buffet restaurant in the company of Disney Characters at lunch and dinner"

(The bold is mine).

yep - and then the brochure contradicts itself on page 53 in the "dine with disney characters" paragraph, where it makes no mention of dinner at all, only character lunch at Inventions.
