    How much is too much when it comes to dining with 3 kids (all girls ages 8, 5, & 2)?? Is a character meal for breakfast AND dinner too much for one day? We have deluxe meal plan & figure we have to eat somewhere so might as well be fun! :o)

    I agree with you completely, when you're at Disney, maximize the fun!

    I have three girls. When they were a bit younger, we often ate at two character meals a day, several days in a row.  In fact, a few years ago, almost all the girls cared about was the characters, not the rides, so we just did everything we could to spend time with them.  I think the way to do this is, as you suggested, at breakfast and lunch. With the character buffets, it's pretty easy to eat a lot quickly. We barely even wanted lunch. We'd just get the kids a medium-big snack in the afternoon and they'd make it from the big breakfast to the big dinner with no problem.

    Sounds like you're going to have a great trip!
