    What is a good estimate of the length of Breakfast for Character dining at: CInderella's Table, Chef Mickey's and Lilo and Stitch? I'm thinking an hour at most for breakfast sounds reasonable as most young kids start getting restless after this point.

    Hi Janet,

    You could probably have the full character dining experience in an hour at the restaurants you mentioned in your question.  (Personally, I would allot 90 minutes for breakfast at Cinderella's Royal Table, Chef Mickey's, and 'Ohana).  Be sure to give yourself some leeway in your schedule after a character breakfast.  The Disney characters will be circulating around the restaurant as you dine so you don't want to be in a hurry to pack up and leave until after all the characters present that morning have been by your table to visit.  You'll be amazed how well entertained even young children can be when they have all the lovely distractions of a character dining experience.  When my son was five-years-old he could have watched the monorails glide overhead at Chef Mickey's for hours.

    Don't forget to bring your camera and an autograph book and pen for each child that morning.

    Have fun dining with the Disney characters on your upcoming trip!
