    We have had breakfast at Chef Mickey in the past, but have heard good reviews of the Crystal Palace breakfast with Pooh and friends. For anyone who has been to both, how do you think they compare and which would you recommend? Thanks

    Hi Kathleen! I love starting a Disney day with a character breakfast! My family has dined at both Chef Mickey's and Crystal Palace many times, and we enjoy both of them. Since you're already been to Chef Mickey's, you know that it's full of energy with the twirling napkins and visits to your table from the Big Cheese himself, along with Minnie, Goofy and friends. My kids love that Chef Mickey's serves Rice Krispie treats for breakfast!

    Crystal Palace is a bright, cheery restaurant featuring Pooh, Tigger and friends. Although it's not as lively as Chef Mickey's, the characters do periodically lead a parade of children around the restaurant. I love that I can schedule breakfast at Crystal Palace before the Magic Kingdom opens and walk through a near-empty park. While I'm really fond of Goofy's Vegetable Lasagna at Chef Mickey's, my personal opinion is that the food on the buffet at Crystal Palace is tastier and has more unique options than Chef Mickey's. Since you're been to Chef Mickey's but haven't tried Crystal Palace, I recommend you give Crystal Palace a try on your next vacation! 

    Come visit us again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions! We'd love to help!
