    Hi. Have ADRs at Crystal Palace, Liberty Tree Tavern, 9 Dragons, Whispering Canyon, SciFi, Captains Grille, Tony's and Chef Mickeys. Also, going to Hoop Dee Doo. Looking to cut one maybe two ADRs. Any suggestions? Thanks

    Yikes Robert! You do have some great Advanced Dining Reservations so to recommend a cut or two is difficult. I don't know how many days you will be visiting but will give you a personal opinion on them.

    You have three reservations for the Magic Kingdom park and possibly here is where you can cut one.  You also have two character dining experiences with Crystal Palace with Winnie the Pooh and friends and then Chef Mickey with all the major fabulous Disney characters.  If I were to cut a Magic Kingdom restaurant I would cut Tony's.  The location is often hard to get to when you are at the others ends of the park and the service can tend to be very, very slow! I keep trying it as the food is normal ok Italian fare but I keep getting service less then desirable.  Liberty Tree is a great central location and food good.

    Of the two character dining choices my first would be Chef Mickey by far.  If your children are really into Winnie the Pooh then keep the Crystal Palace.

    You only have one EPCOT dining selection with Nine Dragons so keep that.  Hoop Dee Doo for me is a must and so different from other shows.  Whispering Canyon is a very casual and guest participant kind of experience but only go for dinner as lunch is quiet. Food is good and atmosphere rousing!  Keep Sci Fi Dine In Theater in Hollywood and one of the best in the park.

    Captains Grille is certainly more of a quiet location in the Yacht Club resort.  Food is good but nothing special as far as atmosphere. For lunch many of the Disney executives hit this location to do business meetings over a bite to eat.

    If I had to cut two from your plan it would most likely be Captains Grille and Crystal Palace.  Hopefully it will all work out and you won't have to cut a thing!
