    Got CRT dinner res for DDs7&5. Making other character meal choices. Don't want to use credits for breakfast unless convinced otherwise(best time for rides). Can pick 2 of CM, TuskerHouse, or Crystal Palace. Also, 2 of H&V, GGrill, or Akershus. Ti

    Hello Ryan! I think I can convince you to have breakfast at Crystal Palace.  If you make your reservation for just after 8:00 (I believe the first reservation is 8:05) on a day the park opens at 9:00, you will be allowed into Magic Kingdom early, you can eat breakfast with Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore & Piglet and be finished before the park opens.  I imagine you'll want to head to the new Fantasyland first so after breakfast you'll want to head that way until you reach a rope that will block your path.  The rope will be removed at 9:00 and you'll be one of the first to enter the park.  By the way, this is also a wonderful time to get a family picture in front of the castle with little to no people in the background!

    So from your list, I would choose Crystal Palace for breakfast and Chef Mickey's for dinner.  From your second list, are you also hoping to meet with characters?  If so, I would go with Hollywood & Vine for a late breakfast (enjoy the rides early and take a break by having breakfast at the last reservation available) and Garden Grill for dinner (you'll be able to meet Chip and Dale here).  Also not on your list but a ton of fun without characters are 50's Prime Time at Hollywood Studios and Whispering Canyon for dinner at the Wilderness Lodge.

    Have a wonderful vacation, Ryan!
