    Hi Moms! Taking our first trip to Disney in May with our 7 and 2 yr olds. We have an ADR at Crystal Palace at 8:25am. It was the earliest time I could get. How long do character breakfasts last? Our trip is short and I want to make good use of our time!

    Hi Tabitha!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I generally advise guests to plan on at least one hour for Table Service meals, especially Character Dining Experiences.  You definitely don't want to feel rushed.  Sometimes it can take longer than that, especially if you have to wait for a particular character to arrive at your table; for example, when you sit down, a character might have just gone by your table and you'll have to wait until that characters comes around again.

    Crystal Palace is a great place and a great way to start a magical day in the Magic Kingdom.  Enjoy!
