I'm terrible at making decision

We're on the DDP for our 6 night stay and we've planed on paying OOP for 3 meals (3 broomsticks at IoA, sushi for myself and DB's GF at Kona Island, and probably one extra CS lunch on our last day)

Here's what I've come up with:

50’s Prime Time (Dinner)
Boma (Dinner)
Donald’s Safari Breakfast @Tusker House (Breakfast)
Biergarten Restaurant (Dinner)
Akershus (Bbreakfast) - DB's GF wants to meet the princesses, but has picked O'hana (Breakfast) as a 2nd choice in case we can't get in

I need a breakfast for our MK day and I'm trying to decide between

Chef Mickey
Whispering Canyon Café
Crystal Palace (we've already been here a number of times and I would like something new, but we'll go with if need be)
O'hana (if it's not used already in place of Akershus, we've been here too, not a fan of the service but we love the food)

We will have a car so no problems there, but I would like something close to MK (so an MK resort as CP is all that's in the park)

Hopefully you followed all that any input would be awesome

If you're going to MK on a particular, nothing beats a early morning breakfast, IMHO, as enjoying a peaceful down a pretty much empty Main Street at 8:00 a.m. and enjoying breakfast with Pooh and friends at CP. It's a great way to start the day whether you've been there many times before or as a first experience.

CP as early as you can get. You can get some great shots of the castle and Main St without anyone in your way.

They weren't listed as options but just throwing them out there-Grand Floridian Cafe or 1900 Park Fare. Hop on the monorail to GF and park when through.

I would recommend a pre-park opening ADR at Crystal Palace first. I just love being in MK before the park opens. If for whatever reason you can't get in there for the 8:05a, I like Chef Mickey's since you can eat there as early as 7am, it's an easy walk to MK, and we feel the food for breakfast is still very good.

IF you're OK with getting into MK after rope drop, i.e. being a little late...1900 PF is my favorite MK area breakfast. I just think you'd be hitting MK closer to 9:15-9:30a if you opted for that one in the earliest slot.

I usually recommend crystal palace because its my fave! i love the food! atmosphere and characters are also great. I also like ohana. so beautiful, and its a nice relaxing meal. but i think trying something new is a LOT of fun, and since youve been to crystal palace a few times already, i will suggest chef mickeys. your kids would love the characters. The food is better at the other two places i mentioned, but chef mickeys is worth a try at least once. plus you did say you wanted something different.

My vote is for 'Ohana. It is more relaxing than CM or CP. And the food is really good!
