We will be staying at the Poly Nov 14-18th. We have ADRs at 'Ohana, Crystal Palace and Chef Mickey's. Is that too many character meals for our short stay? This is our first family trip to Disney World, our boys are 10 and 3.

We are only staying 3 days and have 4 character meals. It's our kids first time too, that's why I booked 4. They are 8 and by the next time we are able to go cm's may not be as big of deal to them.

Crystal Palace the day when we are in MK and Chef Mickey's that night when MK closes (closing early that night). Early breakfast at 'Ohana, then dinner at Akershus while at Epcot. I tried to be somewhat time efficient with ADRs. Not too much hopping around.

It's a short trip, but hoping to see/do a little of everything!

We'll be at the Poly at the same time! My DS is 10 and my DD is 12. We have 2 character meals planned. 'Ohana on the 15th and Lunch at Tuskers on the 16th. My kids are getting old enough that the characters are not such a big deal. Our last trip was when DS was 4 and DD was 6. It was a BIG deal that trip.

My opinion is if you're going to sit down for the meals, then why not have the characters there ?!? Especially with your little one.

Good luck! We might bump into you at the pool

You can never have too many character meals... IMO

Great choices!!!

Timing

WOW!!

So for months and months I would get the Disney Visa offers and pitch them. Don't need another credit card THANKYOUVERYMUCH!

But then on a spur of the moment we decided to book this trip
and that day we got another offer so of course I looked at it

No APR for first year, $200 gift card after first $500 charged (Hello trip)

Needless to say Hubby was skeptical....

Well that was 3 weeks ago, and now here I sit with a $200 gift card, and $80 already in Disney rewards. With a month (another billing cycle) to go.

$300 FREE (sorta kinda- shh don't break my happy bubble .....

I'm so stinkin excited!

I agree that Character Meals are awesome

Our last trip we did almost all CMs and they were a great break for the kids plus a way to get autographs without standing in 95 degree heat with 100% humidity (we went in September)

I'm really not a fan of credit cards because by and large they are misused by both banks and consumers. Banks by allowing people to spend more than they can afford and by consumers by spending more than they can afford.

(gets off of soapbox)

That being said, there are situations where credit cards can be used responsibly and perks can be awarded. The Disney card is one of those. We use ours for our monthly bills that are drafted each month. We pay them as they come in and earn the Disney Dollars as a result. We'll have earned over $300 in Disney Dollars by the time the trip starts. We've used part of that already to purchase our PP+, so again, it's like getting it for free. We also get 10% off of purchases of $50 or more at the Disney Store, parks and disneystore.com. It's a small savings of course, but it will be handy on this trip. It also gets us into the M&G at Epcot for cardmembers. All in all a great card to have for Disney fans.
