I'd suggest Tuesday for your MM... earlier in the week the better.

MTTMM is Mon, Wed, Fri, Sat. So maybe Wed.?

One way to do Char. breakfasts is to feed the kids a granola bar and some milk (or something similar) while standing in line at 7:30 for opening on a non MM day. Hit the non-FP rides, collect FP for later as soon as you can, and have a late brunch around 10:30 (or the last seating where the characters are still out) inside the parks, like at Plaza Inn. You might be able to collect 3 fastpasses before breakfast already, if you have person to be your fastpass colletion runner. And you can get a LOT of rides and fun stuff in, between 8 and 10:30. Then it's a perfect time for a break for brunch with the characters! (edit: Actually I don't know why this wouldn't work as well or even better on your MM day. You'll be up earlier, and that much more ready for a break by 10 or 10:30!)

Regarding preferred seating in CA... the only one that you'll need is for Aladdin. The others aren't necessary (every seat in the house is good and there is no rush for these shows). Even Aladdin isn't that crucial.

HTH! :)

If you are traveling from anywhere east of the Pacific Time zone, I would recommend doing the MM early in your trip to take advantage of the time difference, so Sun or Tues at the latest. The later you get into your trip, the harder those early mornings are going to be.

Sorry, but I have very little experience with TTMM and character meals, so I'll let others respond on those questions.

A few random thoughts:

- Plan on MM for Tuesday (& if you don't make it to the gate 30 min. ahead of time...then do it Thurs.)
- I would "DO" your 2 Character Breakfasts as late as possible. (thus they would knock out lunch as well). Go to the park at opening, tour for a couple of hours....pick up 3 FPs....then go to your breakfasts at 10:15 - 11:15 (depending on the venue). Doesn't matter which day.

(& if your motel offers continental breakfast....grab some to go & munch in line at the gate...so your kids can hold out till 10:30 or 11am.)

Have a great time. :thumbsup2

EDIT - Looks like Avalon & DangerMouse were thinking similar things & beat me to it.

AWESOME suggestions:worship: ...thanks...and the Camelot does do free continental breakfast so I will pick some stuff up and take with us while waiting in line for the gates to open...and I didn't even think about waiting to do breakfast later in the mroning, another GREAT suggestion and then this should hold us over until dinner {with a few snacks in between}...and we are coming from WA so we will already be in PST...and another great suggestiona bout doing our early entry sooner than later in the trip...I do know that the kids will be harder and harder to get up as the days go by....thanks again!
