    Coming to WDW Sept 28-Oct 2 with DS 7 and DD 3. Have 3 character meals reserved-Garden Grill, Chef Mickey's, and Crystal Palace. Considering canceling one, will 3 character meals take away too much time from the parks, or will it be worth it for my kids?

    Hello, Shelly!  Welcome to the Moms Panel!

    Let me put a bit of a twist on this for you.  I want you know how much time you will waste by standing in lines just waiting to take a picture with a Disney Character.  There are times that you can spend at least 30 minutes to an hour in line just waiting to take a picture with Mickey Mouse and Friends.  Also keep in mind that you will be taking time out of your day anyway to eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  With your character meals, you will be dining on some wonderful food and waiting for the characters to come directly to your table.  It is almost like tackling two MAGICAL issues at once.  You also selected a great time frame to visit. The crowds will not be bad and you will be able to enjoy everything each park has to offer.  I would definitely keep the reservations! 

    Thank you so much for visiting the Moms Panel.  Please join us again real soon should any new questions or concerns pop-up.  We are always ready to help our guests plan the vacation of a lifetime.  May your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation be filled with many new and MAGICAL memories.  

    ~Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON"!~
