which ADR should I cancel

due to a change in budget I think I need to cancel a couple of ADRS which ones can we do without? Its me, DH, DD 11, DS 9 we havent been in 7 years so DS doesnt remember anythng from our last trip.

day one sci fi lunch
day 2 chef Mickeys dinner
day 3 none planned
day 4 Tusker house Breakfast / whispering Canyon dinner
day 5 Cape May breakfast / BOG dinner
day 6 Crystal Palace brunch before we head home late flight

I know the sensible thing to do is cancel the most expensive but I rather pay for it if its worth it and cancel another others

What time of year are you going? I ask because I find a big breakfast too much in the heat.. kind of wipes you out for the day. I would probably cancel one of the character breakfasts, one of the earlier ones. Keep a later character breakfast because that will serve as breakfast and lunch if you have an early morning snack. So I would say cancel either cape may or tusker house, you don't need both.

BOG has not gotten good reviews for dinner at all! Try going at lunch for MUCH cheaper counter service lunch and still get all the ambiance.

Crystal Palace would be my choice. Food wise it is the worst on your list and your kids are older than the target audience for that place.

KEEP tusker house. One of our absolute favorites. If I had to choose between the two I'd cancel cape may cafe.

Sci fi is neat but not that good and BOG go at lunch it's cheaper and you still get the beautiful atmosphere

I think I'd cancel either Tusker or Cape May. They are both good, but I'd probably cancel Cape May based on your schedule. We haven't had BOG for lunch, but I've heard it's got long waits. We had it for dinner and really enjoyed it. That being said, you might want to look at the menu for it to see if if appeals to you. It is a limited selection.

If you want to cancel another one, I'd cancel Chef Mickey's. It seems like the reviews on that are pretty spotty.

What's the possibility of you doing a late breakfast or lunch on the days you have two meals scheduled? In other words, just do one meal on those days instead of two.

I don't know if I would cancel BOG because (1) its impossible to get a dinner reservations and (2) the wait for lunch is long.

I'd probably drop Chef Mickey and Whispering Canyon. But that's because I don't care for either of those restaurants.

I would get rid of Sci Fi and/or Cape May. Keep BOG and TH. Also depends on which characters your children like. If they don't care much for Pooh and friends for example, I would try to change to Liberty Tree. Still can do a res around 11 and cheaper per person. Enjoy!

TH & CP are my favorite breakfasts, so I'd keep those.

I'd get rid of WCC & BOG dinners.

You have 3 Mickey meals...and 3 character breakfasts. I would look at eliminating some of those. I would drop Cape May just for transportation reasons (unless you are staying in that area?).

Also WCC doesn't really get rave dinner reviews and it is expensive. I might replace it with somewhere else....what about Trails End and go to the campfire?
