What is the Marvel Character Dinner?

Feast on a buffet full of salads, pasta, and pizza before coming face-to-face with Captain America, Spider-Man, Wolverine, Storm, and Rogue in a character experience fit for a hero. The superheroes make the rounds from table to table, ensuring that every last patron (whether a kid or just a kid-at-heart) has the opportunity to collect autographs, take photos, and otherwise shoot the superheroic breeze over dinner.

Where is the Marvel Character Dinner located?

Inside Cafe 4, at Marvel Super Hero Island, which is in Islands of Adventure.

Marvel Character Dinner – OI tip

Marvel’s superheroes have been thoughtful enough to think of their vegetarian fans with veggie-friendly salads (marinated artichoke, fresh fruit, and bowtie pasta salads), as well as some meatless entrées (such as pasta with tomato basil sauce).

There is a small selection of items that can be prepared – or already are – gluten-free, including a chef-tossed Caesar salad, tossed house salad, and plant-based penne bolognese.
