    My family (13 People) made 2 res. for a character breakfast but only want to do 1. which is better 1900 park fare or Crystal Palace? Family is going to AK park that day We stay at WL hotel will trasportation be a hasle to go from the WL to GF to AK park?

    Hi Megan!  Both character breakfasts are fun and very popular.  The choice would be about what characters would please your children the most.  For the Crystal Palace you will see Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore, and Piglet.  The characters at 1900 Park Fare will be Mary Poppins and friends. Both will be breakfast buffets.

    Each choice provides different challenges to get to the Animal Kingdom park but nothing is difficult.

    If you choose the Grand Floridian breakfast buffet meal you will need to take a boat to the Magic Kingdom and then hop on the local monorail to the Grand Floridian resort or the boat.  This would take approximately 40 minutes.  You can also take the bus to the Transportation and Ticket Center and transfer to a monorail there and that might be about 35 minutes.  Once you are finished head out the lobby and turn right where you will see the Grand Floridian bus stop.  Wait for the bus for the Animal Kingdom Park and that ride will be about 24 minutes.

    If you choose the breakfast in the Magic Kingdom you will take the boat ferry to the park from the Wilderness Lodge and that will take approximately 15 minutes.  From the Magic Kingdom to the Animal Kingdom park you will need to take the monorail or ferry to the Transportation and Ticket Center and then a bus to the Animal Kingdom park.  That will take about 40 minutes.

    Both require a change with your transportation but everything is marked well and there are cast members around at each point to help direct you to the needed busses or boats or monorails.  Just give yourself enough time so you are not stressing in case of unforseen delays.
