    I'm hoping to make reservations at Chef Mickey's. Is it better to do a breakfast or dinner reservation? Or does it really matter? This is our first trip to WDW !


    The character interaction at Chef Mickey's at both breakfast and dinner is excellent, especially if you are seated at the end of the seating window. Both buffets offer a lot of choices both for adults and children who are picky eaters. So a decision between breakfast and dinner comes down to cost and what you'll be missing out on in the theme parks while you're eating.

    If you're watching your budget, breakfast may be better. I like to recommend that guests make the latest reservation you can so that you can head to the Magic Kingdom for rope drop and low crowds and then head over for a late brunch as crowds build in the park. If the thought of missing out on the theme parks makes you hesitant to book, then consider making a reservation the evening you arrive at Disney. This way, you get character photos out of the way so that you don't feel like you have to use a FastPass+ selection in the parks for a meet-and-greet. 

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
