to get the GKTW site, i used GKTW prearrival in my search engine to get the GKTW page. check out activites at the village. i would think hard about the character meal as your son will have to watch characters stop at other tables before reaching your table. the charcters have a set pattern going around room. also if a parade happens just before they get to your table character will go to their parade spot then return to visit with you. can make for a long wait. with everything avaible to do on your trip, will not be able to do it all, plan on what is important for your family. GKTW is very special and makes all the kids feel special not just the wish kid.

We had a wonderful time in October eating breakfast at Ohana in the Polynesian resort. We had never been there before, and I think this was our favorite breakfast, after Crystal Palace (Pooh). At Ohana they had Stitch, Lilo, Mickey and Minnie. They really took their time with our table and those around us. It was also nice that they do a little parade every so often around the restaurant and kids/adults join in. We loved it! You can take the monorail or resort boat from MK.

Chef mickeys and autism

I saw your mention of your child's autism and felt a eyed to mention my autistic daughter has been to WDW and disney cruises several times and HATES chef Mickeys!!! she loves character interactions, but chef mickeys was too loud and frenetic for her sensetive ears!!! she loved the crystal palace and that is pooh and friends, she loves the yacht club character breakfast ( might be beach club ) Minnie was there, chip n dale, Pluto, but don't think we saw mickey.....I would definitely ask the GKTW staffers if the famous mice will be visiting the resort while you are there and make that a priority of possible. The other option is to take your wish kid to guest services at Magic Kingdom and explain your dilemma, they may be able to help make some magic......
