EMH @ AK - Tusker House Breakfast question
 
We're spending our one day at AK on an EMH (am) day, as it fits best in our schedule. I do have a question though ....

We're planning to have breakfast at Tusker House and I'm just curious what timing of an ADR would most allow us to maximize our time? Since it is an AM EMH day, the park will open for resort guests at the same time that Tusker House opens... that said, would it be better to have a later breakfast and 'tour' for a bit before? My current ADR is for 8:25, but I'm thinking about maybe doing one around 10 instead.

I appreciate your responses!!

I would go with the later one. That 8:25 gives you absolutely no time to do anything other than check in for your breakfast.

That's what I'm thinking ... I'd almost feel like I was giving my EMH away....:rotfl2:

honestly, I'd make it a lunch instead. So you'll have a few hours before the crowds really start to get all the headliners done. even an early lunch at 11:00ish would be good. You'd be able to get the safari, river rapids, dinosaur and EE done by then.

I would do the 10:00 breakfast. You'll be able to get the main attractions done before then and breakfast/characters will be much less busy at 10. We prefer the breakfast at TH over lunch.

Whenever I book a breakfast ADR, within a park, I try to book it for an EMH morning. Then, I plan on it being around 10-10:30. This way, I get almost 2 hrs of park time, without crowds, then I eat a late breakfast leaving little need for a regular lunch!!! I can get a nice snack around 2ish, then plan on dinner around 6ish.

Thanks, guys! I've modified it for 10:15. We are having dinner at BOMA that night too ... so, that is why I wanted to stick with breakfast (and, for some reason - my 12 y/o who never eats breakfast at home other than 'grab and go' has become obsessed with us having breakfast at Disney... lol).

I really do appreciate all of the insight that you guys offer!!!

I had the same question :) thanks for posting!

Really wanted to do breakfast because not sure my picky eaters would eat much at the lunch but hated to waste my EMH .. looks like maybe a late breakfast for us!

DEFINITELY go for a 10/10:30 ADR for breakfast!

I did this in Sept! We arrived for the 8am rope drop, straight to EE, rode 4 times, over to the safari, rode once, and if you wanted to stop for Dinosaur, there's more than enough time for that too! Then you head over to Tusker for breakfast, and then hit up characters and shows afterwards!

Sounds like my kind of plan!!! Thanks for sharing your experience!

We do breakfast at TH every trip and always book the last breakfast seating. That usually gives us plenty of time to get our morning touring done plus they generally switch over to lunch part way through our meal so we get both breakfast and lunch.

The getting to try some of the lunch items is something I hadn't thought about ... that is a bonus! :thumbsup2

Moving to the Dining board where all restaurant and dining questions should be recorded.

Sorry about that - guess I looked at it as more 'strategy' for touring, than about dining specifically! Thanks for moving it to the appropriate place!!
