1900 VS Crystal for breakfast

I'm torn!!!

I'll be honest, the biggest appeal for Crystal Palace is being in the park before opening, but I have heard the food is excellent.

But...1900 Park Fare seems like it's..."better"

What do y'all think?!

We've been to both for breakfast, and everybody likes Crystal Palace more: better character interaction, seemed more relax. They both have an omelette station, but only Crystal Palace have Pooh's french toast

Personally, I prefer Crystal Palace. I think it's better all around.

Can't beat being in the park early with CP! On another note, Park fair has wonderful dinner character interaction.

We really enjoyed both...
If I had to choose one I would go with pre-rope drop CP

I would definitely choose 1900 Park Fare. The food is great, and the characters actually talk to you. I personally think the only advantage to CP is that it's in the park.

Well, I love Mary Poppins, so that decides it for me. However, there is something to be said for being in the park before it opens. There is some crossover between the characters--both have Pooh and Tigger.

Same here. We liked CP much much better. Better food and characters. I never cared for poppins, alice or mad hatter anyway.

Crystal Palace all the way! MK tradition for us, though we usually do both during a typical vacation. We usually book for a late breakfast so we are eating just as the park fills up. I ask for the latest sitting before it switches to lunch.

Yeap totally agree but also have to add that we prefer the food at 1900 PF over CP breakfast (although many won't agree with me there, but that's ok) BUT you can't beat being in the park already... (we usually do 1900 PF on a non-park day or on the day we're leaving)...feel free to read about our experiences if you would like...

Two Words:

Breakfast Lasagna!! yumm-o

Also, if you are able to book an early time, you will get to have Mainstreet be virtually empty! We got some great castle shots with ZERO other people in them!

Crystal Palace definitely! I love being able to get into the park early for some empty shots on Main Street. The buffet is really good!
