    I am trying to decide between breakfast at Chef Mickeys or Ohana. Which do you recommend for a 1 and 4 year old? Also, what characters besides Lilo & Stitch are at Ohana?

    Hi Cassandra!

    Both Ohana (With Lilo, Stick, Mickey & Pluto) and Chef Mickey's (Mickey, Goofy, Chip & Dale) are great choices for a classic character breakfast with children your kids' ages.  I'd base your decision on a few factors.  Chef Mickey's is an all you care to eat buffet, where you'll get up to get your Mickey waffles, eggs, fruit and other breakfast favorites.  My kids get excited about getting up and picking their own food.  However, some families with little kids find this a bit stressful.   Ohana features a "family style" breakfast, where platters of food (including what many believe to be the best scrambled eggs at Disney) are served on large platters.  Ohana is also "all you care to eat", as your server will continue to bring out more food until you are stuffed!  If a sit-down versus buffet meal is more or less convenient, that's one factor I'd consider.  The other is your kids' character preferences. 

    Both the Contemporary and Polynesian resorts are very convenient for starting a day at Magic Kingdom, as the monorail runs directly trough both.  If I absolutely had to pick, I'd vote for Chef Mickey's because, in my opinion, it's the quintessential character meal at Disney!

    Have a great day!
