Crystal Palace for bkfst or dinner?

We have ressies for dinner at Crystal Palace but now I'm reading so many great reviews I'm thinking of changing to bkfst. I like the idea of getting in to the park before rope drop for photos ops. We're already doing bkfst at 1900, Boma & Cape May. Seems like a lot of bkfst buffets! BTW, we're also doing dinner at Akershus, San Angel, Ragland Road & 50's Prime Time. We prefer to use QS/snacks for lunch & TS for bkfst/dinner. Would appreciate any thoughts. Thanks so much!

It seems that many people enjoy CP for breakfast, lunch and dinner so I don't think you can go wrong whichever you pick. We have done both breakfast & dinner at CP and we definitely prefer breakfast - love the puffed french toast!!. We thought the dinner was just ok (not bad but nothing special), but we're generally not fans of dinner buffets anyway. I think you will enjoy CP no matter which meal you choose.

We've eaten at CP for dinner. While it wasn't great, it wasn't bad either. It was your typical buffet. We won't eat dinner there again. There are too many other great places to eat at (Ohanas, Konas, etc.) nearby MK that we would rather go to. We haven't eaten at CP for breakfast so I can't give firsthand thoughts but I do know it gets GREAT reviews for breakfast. The reviews for breakfast at CP are so good that we're going to try it on our next trip. Knowing what I know about the dinner & all of the reviews I've read on breakfast, I would switch it to breakfast. That will put you having a lot of breakfast reservations though. Could you switch your Boma breakfast to dinner? Just an idea.

The food is pretty good for breakfast at CP. However, we were there a week ago for breakfast and I was very put off at how rushed the characters were. It was almost like they had over booked and were trying to get as many people as possible into the restaurant. Piglet was at our table for 30 seconds, Tigger indicated he would come back when my husband returned but never did. We were there for about an hour and never saw Eeyore or Pooh and I've been done within 45 minutes each time I've been there. Something has changed and not for the good. I would still do it but make sure you get the characters to slow down with your family.
