    Hi Moms, I need to cancel 2 ADRs and would like advice on which to cancel: factoring in budget and dining experience. I have ADRs for Crystal Palace,Liberty Tree,Whisp Canyon,9 Dragons,Capt Grille,SciFi,Tony's, & Chef Mickey's. Thanks!

    Hi Robert!

    Man, you have some really good reservations there! I know it must be tough to consider canceling any...

    Most of these aren't too far off when comparing costs. Your buffets are going to run a little more (Crystal Palace and Chef Mickeys, at around $40 per adult), then come your "all-you-care-to-eat" dining (Liberty Tree Tavern and Whispering Canyon Cafe', at around $30+), surf-and-turf's can be pricey (Captain Grille's), and the others range by what you select (the less expensive chicken or the more expensive fish?).

    So, I will primarily look at overall experience. I've never been to Nine Dragons, so I can't opine on that restaurant. As for the others, here are the one's I would absolutely, positively NOT cancel. The food and experience, at least to me, is just too good to miss out on: Liberty Tree Tavern (great food/good service), Whispering Canyon (fun and unique), Chef Mickey's (probably my favorite character experience).

    That leaves Crystal Palace, Captain Grilles, Sci-Fi, and Tony's Town Square. Captain Grilles may cost, but the food here is really good. Tony's Town Square is right there on Main Street, a great locale. I've been to both Sci-Fi and Crystal Palace a few times. Although they were both good, I wouldn't say either were the most memorable. If you have kids, the old movies at Sci-Fi will only entertain them but so far. And Crystal Palace, which is a beautiful place, always felt odd to me with the Winnie the Pooh and Friends contrast in such an elegant place.

    So my vote for cancellations would be: Crystal Palace and Sci-Fi.

    Hope that helps. Have a good one!
