    How long do you think an 8am ADR at CP will last? We are hoping to enjoy some of the early morning less crowded time. Do you think we will be able to? Done CP before but not for breakfast. Any tips on making it move along at a steady pace w/o rushing? Thx.

    Hello Dawn,

    Oh, you've chosen one of my favorite character meals! Tigger is my favorite and I always enjoy getting a hug from him at Crystal Palace dining with Pooh and friends.

    Typically, I always like to allow about an hour for any character meal. Although, this is a buffet, so you can pretty much pace yourself at however quickly or slowly you would like to dine. Keep in mind, though that if you rush too quickly, you may not get to see all the characters. It is usually timed where you should be able to see all the characters and have enough time to eat with 45 minutes to an hour. In regards to suggestions I have for getting the most out of it in a timely manner, I would say to take a look as to how close the next available character is in relation to your table when you are seated. If there is one really close, we tend to hold off going to the buffet until after greeting that character. Then, you should have some time to grab your plates of food before the next character.

    I hope this helps you figure out the timing of your meal. Have a magical time.
