Crystal Palace was our go to place for many years. We're now kind of out of the whole character meal thing anyway so we don't bother with any of them now.

Crystal Palace is a tradition for us. Always have breakfast there on departure day. Even though my kids are grown now, some things aren't negotiable. My DD has informed us that CP is one of those things.

We are "early on" where traditions are concerned. So far Garden Grill is a favorite and a must each trip. Really enjoy Chip and Dale along with Mickey and Pluto. Bonus is they come to you with food and characters.

We've done GG for dinner, but not breakfast. We'll have to give it a try sometime.

We like 1900 Park Fare for both breakfast and dinner for different reasons (breakfast on more recent trips and dinner years ago with nieces).
Norway princess breakfast was another requested spot from friends and family who joined us over the years.

Akershus a must-do for me each and every trip (usually multiple times).

Cinderellaís Royal Table a nice alternative for breakfast or dinner. Timing for fireworks gives a unique experience.

Trattoria al Forno a new breakfast addition Iíll do a couple times a year. Could do without those damn Princes, though...


Typically end up at a few others as well throughout the course of my trips.
