    My daughter is turning 4 during our trip to WDW. She loves Minnie Mouse. On her birthday, we would like to take her to a character meal that has Minnie, and we are debating between Chef Mickey and Cape May. Which should we choose?

    Hi Patricia!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Moms Panel.

    My family absolutely loves Chef Mickey's.  We love the excitement in the room and we love the fact that it is in the Contemporary, making it very easy to get to from the Magic Kingdom.  It is a "must do" for our children, ages 5 and 10. 

    However, Cape May Cafe in the Beach Club Resort is also a great Character Breakfast.  Generally speaking, it is a lot less crowded at the Beach Club than at Chef Mickey's and I think you have longer interactions with the characters.  The food is also good, and the quality of the food is comparable to the quality at Chef Mickey's.

    If you want a quieter atmosphere, select Cape May Cafe.  If your resort hotel is on Crescent Lake or if you're going to go to Epcot or Disney's Hollywood Studios after breakfast, then also go with Cape May Cafe.  Whatever you decide to do, be sure to make an Advanced Dining Reservation (ADR).  ADRs can be made at (407) WDW-DINE or online.

    Another option is to have breakfast at Cape May Cafe and have dinner on a different day at Chef Mickey's!  Enjoy planning and write back if you have any more questions!
