    Love the panel! I am a chef and we are taking our first trip to Disney! I am booking a meal at both Crystal palace and Chef Mickey's. I want to do one breakfast and one dinner. As far as quality, which one do you recommend for which meal? Thanks so much

    Hi, Jasmine!   I recommend booking Chef Mickey's for breakfast and Crystal Palace for dinner.   Dinner at Chef Mickey's is good, but not always consistent (we've hit it some nights when it is less than good!)  Their breakfast is always fine (really, how bad can you mess up breakfast food!)

    Crystal Palace seems to be consistently good.   I think they have a better buffet selection for dinner compared to Chef Mickey's.   Plus, I like you don't have to leave the Magic Kingdom for dinner, it is right there waiting for you.

    If you want to compare menus and pricing, go to and select DINING.   Whatever you decide, make sure to make your Advance Dining Reservations 90 days prior to your trip by calling (407)WDW-DINE.
