    Hi, I only have 1 day in the MK but have dining reservations on 2 separate days. Should I go with Crystal Palace at 8:05 AM before the park opens or the Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Party? I'm so torn. Which is the best option for a 2-year-old boy? Thx!

    Elise, you have the best kind of problem possible- a Disney dilemma. Confronted with an agonizing choice of which astonishing experience to pick, you can relax knowing there no wrong choices.

    Tinker Bell soaring directly over my head at the Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party is one of my favorite experiences in all of Walt Disney World. With a two year old in tow, however, I would opt for breakfast at the Crystal Palace. A late night binge of sweets followed by loud blasts might be a bit much for a toddler. You can enjoy the fireworks without attending TTFDP, but the chance to eat waffles with Winnie can only be found at the Crystal Palace.

    Even entering the park before opening to make your breakfast time is a treat. Stop and grab a picture in front of Cinderella Castle with no crowds, enjoy a stroll down an empty Main Street, U.S.A., and bypass the rope drop queue thanks to your early reservation. Once you reach the restaurant, hugs from Eeyore, Winnie-the-Pooh, Tigger, and Piglet will delight your two year old boy. Quicker than you can say supercalifragilistic your little boy will have moved beyond cuddly characters so enjoy this stage now.

    Remember, no matter which reservation you go with you will be happy!
