    Hi! We have decided on doing a character breakfast & dinner. The 2 places we have chosen are Chef Mickey's & CRT. Which is the best for breakfast & which for dinner? Thank you

    Hi, Colleen! My advice for Cinderella's Royal Table is to try to secure an early breakfast reservation. In my opinion, all 3 meals are not anything to write home about at CRT, and it's really the experience that you're paying for. So why not try to make the most of your time there for the least amount (or credits, if you're on the Disney Dining Plan). One of the neat aspects of having an early breakfast at CRT is that you may enter the park before it officially opens depending on the time of your reservation.  I have pictures of my children with the Castle behind them and NO ONE ELSE in the's awesome! Also, the sooner you have breakfast, the sooner you're ready to enjoy some attractions together since you're already at Magic Kingdom.

    I like to have a late dinner at Chef Mickey's for several reasons.  I love that the Contemporary is the very first stop on the monorail when we're the most tired and usually starving! Also, it's a better-than-usual buffet with carving stations, a great salad and soup selection and yummy, creative desserts. My teenager son who has an adventuresome appetite loves the selection (and quantity), and my two finicky eaters can find plenty as well.  Check the calendar for when you're there and try to time dinner so that you can either see the fireworks from the windows at Chef Mickey's, or you can take a stroll after dinner onto the bridge that connects the Contemporary to Bay Lake Towers and watch them from there.

    I hope this helps you make an informed decision.  Have a wonderful day and a most magical vacation!
