Bummer. I guess we will have to talk and see if we will add the AK onto our itinerary. If not, Chef Mickey's here we come.

So glad to hear good reviews about the TH breakfast. I just made reservations.

Tusker House! The additional african themed foods on the buffet and the fresh carved ham are standouts! And the juice is great!

This was the one and only time I've ever been rude to a cast member.

My advice is to avoid the Breakfast Safari at all costs. Or at least make sure you bring your patience and extra cash with you.
A pre-paid photopass CD does NOT include pictures from character meals. You need the Photopass Plus for those to be included (except for a few of them where it's included in the price of the meal - which Tusker House is not).

Thanks for confirming this for me. We have our first meal schedule for TH in May at 8:30 (I was the only one in favor of an 8 ressie), and we are getting the PP+. I thought it was included in that one but wasn't too sure. So thanks!

Definitely Tusker House for breakfast, We've done Chef Mickey's for all meals and breakfast is definitely not their strong suite!, Tusker House is probably my favorite restaurant at Disney so I'm a bit biased but their breakfast is FANTASTIC as it has lots of stuff you may have never tried but wondered where it was all your life after trying it.

Try some quinoa with honey YUM, It's a bit like oatmeal but not

Tusker house, Boma and O'hana probably have the best breakfast at Disney, With a nod to Tonga Toast at Kona!. I would skip breakfast at CM as it is to be charitable uninspired.

Chef Mickey's is at their best at dinner, They have great pasta dishes and a pasta bar with a bunch of sauces (pesto sauce is GREAT) , the Salmon is wonderful and there are a bunch of chicken and beef dishes in addition to the carving station. Lunch is similar but not as much variety and I'd suggest going after 8PM to beat the worst of the crowds and the kids will get more time to interact with the characters. Last time we were there we had Goofy doing the dance numbers from 'Flashdance' it was a scream!.

I think the bad reviews are largely from the breakfast crowd - we always try to get at least 1 dinner at CM's.

Plus we are doing MNSSHP that day and will be at the MK all evening. Staying at AKL, I almost think it would be better not to have to travel so far twice in one day.

I vote for Donalds Safari Breakfast. It's awesome and we love the Jungle Juice.

I'm loving the info here. We're only doing 1 character meal during our trip next month, and it is 8:40 (that's the only time I could get) at TH.

Not sure I want to wait 30 minutes to see Donald. Daisy is the one my DS will probably enjoy the most. Does she come to the table?

One more question. What time would you arrive at the park for the 8:40 reservation? I want to enjoy the walk to the restaurant.

Yesterday Daisy was there, I would want to be in AK at least 20 minutes ahead of time for a somewhat leisurely walk back to TH.
