    Taking our 2yr son Aug 31 to Sep 6 we have used most of Sit down dining for breakfast at a variety of Character Breakfasts. Do you think it would have been better to split them between Breakfests & Dinners and if so what dinners would you recomm

    Hi Georgia,

    When my youngest was two, it was our first time at the Walt Disney World Resorts with our children. Our other daughter was four at the time. The most valuable lesson we learned was to stick to their schedule and schedule downtime. Nine years later, it still works for us.

    If your son is a morning person, then breakfast is fine for the character meals. I love character meals because you have the opportunity to interact with some classic Disney characters and get photos and autographs without waiting twice. If your son, does not really do breakfast well but loves dinner, then go ahead and switch to the dinner reservations.

    We would do one breakfast character breakfast and then the rest dinner. The reason for the dinner reservations is to plan some downtime. It allows you to get out of the crowds, eat something and decide if you can stay for the evening fun or go home. Only twice in all of our trips with the girls (over a dozen and counting) have we had to call it an early evening.

    I love dinner at Crystal Palace and my family love Chef Mickey's for dinner too. Breakfast you can not go wrong at any of the character meals especially Tusker House.

    Remember, two can be a tricky age with the characters as some children love the characters and others can be afraid. So you know your child best and if he will enjoy this experience.

    Have a magical vacation!
