the desserts in the picture are not desserts offered through kids meals the kids get a prepackaged cookie. really considering upgrading a 8 year old to the adult plan the kids meal was really bad. when comparing her burger with ours the taste just was horrible and her nuggets was beter to get her tenders but that is an adult meal. i thought disney was not doing processed food for kids lol

I posted the cupcakes because we were chatting about them. However, they are a snack option, as you can see in the photo.

Unless something has changed, you can order any Quick Serve meal for your DD, it does not have to be a kid's meal. They don't advertise this, but it is allowed. (At least it used to be.)

Hello CR Fans!!!

After many years and many WDW resorts, we're staying at CR next month! We booked Tower-Bay Lake View and we're all looking forward to it. We're splitting our stay with BC (our old favorite) and moving over to CR the morning of our MK day/MNSSHP night.

We made a relatively last-minute decision to book this trip (July decision to book October trip) so Chef Mickey's was no longer available for breakfast during our stay. We have three boys, and we've been to Chef Mickey's several times, but not with our youngest (age 5.) The rest of us are fine with skipping it, but we're planning at least one quick breakfast at Contempo Cafe and I'm a little concerned about the proximity to Chef Mickey's. Is it so close that our youngest is likely to be disappointed not to be over at Chef Mickey's? We were just on a 7-night Disney cruise and we have APs, so he's had lots of Mickey time, but I'm wondering whether we should find an alternative for breakfast. Maybe we should grab an ADR at the Wave instead so that we're not right there next to CM's? I'd appreciate any suggestions - thanks!

We love the breakfast at the Wave. But another option is to try standby at Chef. Our first year at CR, we had no ADR for CM and could hear the commotion but had no idea what was going on. Our second year, no ADR, but hubby tried the desk a few times and we were able to get in probably 3 times. He got the pager and sat by the lounge while we went back to the room to hang. Never waited more than 40 minutes. We never tried this for breakfast though - only dinners.

Here is a photo I took last month showing the proximity of CM to CC:



Essentially, CM is right behind CC and the entrance is just to the left of CC - he'll know it's there! One way to avoid CM is to eat breakfast at The Wave. Their breakfast buffet is fantastic! It's located on the check-in level, just to the right of the concierge desk. You could also easily take the monorail to Capt. Cook's, but you'll have to go near CM to get to the monorail escalator. We love CC, but if you're trying to avoid any reminders of CM, then it'll be impossible there.

You've booked our favorite CR/BLT view - you'll love it!

Thanks Qmom and KOOK! Wow - KOOK's photo really shows the proximity - never paid attention to what was around CMs when we've been there in the past, so that really helps.

Just made an early breakfast ADR at the Wave. We can check in, leave our luggage with Bell Services, grab breakfast and head to MK for rope drop. My husband isn't great with CS anyway, so this should get the day off to a better start!

You're welcome and I like your plan. You never know, your room might even be ready when you check-in

We stayed tower club (14th floor) two years ago. Enjoyed it. HAte to tell you though, the entire floor closes in January for renovations so the only CL available at CR will be Atrium Club. It may already be booked up. If you want to upgrade I'd suggest calling immediately.

So sorry, couldn't resist. 'Staying put' is not in dear pas130's normal vernacular, even on these
