    Hi moms and dads! Question about character it better to book ADRs early and be done by the time the park opens or book later in the morning?

    Hi Nancy!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Moms Panel.  A Character Breakfast is a great way to start the day.  My family especially enjoys Chef Mickey's in the Contemporary resort.

    If you want to maximize the number of attractions you can experience and minimize the amount of time you are waiting in line, then my suggestion is to be finished dining before the park opens.  That could mean eating very early which may not be best for many guests.  The next best solution, if you can hold out, is to have an Advanced Dining Reservation for the last breakfast seating.  That way you will have had an opportunity to tour the park during the early morning hours when it is generally least crowded.

    You can see more of my thoughts on touring early here.

    Enjoy planning and write back if you have any more questions!
