    We r going to Disney Feb 13-21& have Crystal Palace BF res. on President's day. I am not sure if I should change this. We have a 2 & 1 yr old. We aren't worried about missing rides that day, just that there may be such a huge crowd.

    Hi, Ryan!  The best advice I can give you, based on my experience, is to keep the Crystal Palace reservation.  If you don't mind about missing some of the rides later in the day, this is your best way to not only enjoy a wonderful breakfast together, but to guarantee some face time with some of the characters.  The restaurant is a sure fire way to have a quick visit with some of your favorite characters without having to stand in a long line.

    The best part about the Crystal Palace is that it's a buffet, so you really control the pace at which the meal moves along.  You don't have to worry so much if your waitress is busy because the restaurant is crowded. 

    My kids much prefer seeing the characters at a meal than waiting in line.  It's also easier for me to keep the little ones busy while they wait to hug Pooh if they have something to eat and lots going on around them.
