    Hello, we are vacationing here next and have two reservations scheduled for breakfast...one with Mickey and one with Pooh and Tigger. If we were to keep the reservation at Cape May Cafe, how long would it take us to get to MK when finished?

    First things first -- The Cape May Cafe has a great character breakfast. But Mickey generally does not appear there. The current character line-up includes Minnie, Goofy, and Donald. I have also less frequently seen Chip and Dale there.

    I ate at Cape May last week and did exactly what you suggest - headed from there to the Magic Kingdom. It took us about half an hour to get from the Beach Club to the MK. We waiting a few minutes for a bus to arrive, then we were on our way. However, I generally recommend that you allow yourself about 45 minutes to get from the BC to the MK. Often, the trip will be less than this, but it is possible that you will have to wait about 15-20 minutes for a bus to arrive if you happen to have just missed the previous one.

    I also ate at the Crystal Palace last week. Here are some things to think about as you make your decision:

    - The food is substantially the same at both locations.
    - If you are staying in the Epcot resorts area, you may be able to sleep a bit later if you're eating at Cape May. If you're not staying the Epcot resorts area, getting to Cape May might be a challenge if you don't have a car.
    - If your Crystal Palace reservation is very early, you might be able to get some good family photos on Main Street before the park gets too crowded.
    - Crystal Palace is louder and a bit more chaotic than Cape May. If overstimulation is an issue for anyone in your group, Cape May is a better choice.

    Good luck with your planning.
