Too Many Character Breakfasts

I had scheduled 4 Character breakfasts originally and have now added one since Sofia and Doc have been added to Hollywood and Vine next year. Please help me decide which ones to keep. 5 breakfasts in 9 days is way too much for us. It's me DH DD6 and DD2. Here are our breakfasts....

CRT
Tusker House
Hollywood and Vine
'Ohana
1900 Park Fare

Thanks

I voted for Tusker House, but my favorite character breakfast is Crystal Palace.

We had breakfast at Ohana and really loved it, and will go back this next time.
If you don't mind me asking where did you leave about Sofia and Doc being added and when will they be included. I would get major brownie points with my 4 year old if she could have breakfast with her two favorites!

Disney Parks blog announced Sofia and Doc will be at H&V beginning January 26h.

Out of those, i've only done Ohana. It was one of our traditions to go there each trip, but it was a bit disappointing when we visited last week. We actually probably won't go back on our next trip.

It's served family style, which I typically like, but I didn't like that we had to ask for more food and then wait for it to be brought out. Plus I believe I got food poisoning there, which is probably what ruined it for me

Very brief character interaction too. Lilo & Stitch were great but Mickey was in a hurry and Pluto didn't have the time of day for anyone

CRT is amazing. I'd never give it up.

We have done all of them but 1900 Park Fare.

I love booking the first reservation of the day to get into these parks before they open. We are doing all three of these again if we have a chance. Tusker House is my favorite of them. If I were to cut one of those, I would probably cut CRT, just for the expense factor, but it really is fun to eat in the castle.

CRT
Tusker House
Hollywood and Vine

I would only do 'Ohana if I was taking a day off from the parks. It is a great meal and the character interactions are great, but I don't like going to the park late, or leaving so early for the breakfast reservation.

We loved Tusker House and Crystal Palace breakfasts in October with daughters 5 and 2. We did CRT dinner. We're not fans of 1900 Park dinner, but would like to check out the breakfast next time. Thought H&V was just okay for our lunch. Service wasn't here at, food was nothing special and characters at that time were outdated. However, I am sure Doc and Sofia would have been much bigger hits than Manny and Oso.

Of that list for breakfast, my least favorites were Ohana and 1900, but I liked them all.

Of those listed, I'd drop either 1900 PF or CRT. We prefer dinner at both locations. Tusker House and Cape May Cafe are our absolute favorite character breakfasts.

Can you move some of them to a different meal so they aren't all breakfast? We only have one breakfast ADR this year....'Ohana. And it's on our last day. I asked my kids about H&V since we're skipping it this year, and they didn't care about the new characters.

We liked Tusker House but we did it for lunch, we found that just worked better with how we like to eat (light breakfast, big lunch, smaller dinner).

This is hard to say which one to cut because there isn't a lot of overlap with characters.

Do you do the EMH? What time do you normally do your breakfasts? Maybe switch one to the latest BK (like 1030) at Tusker House on a AK EMH and then you can get both BK and lunch and just give the little ones a snack first thing in the AM?

Agree! We sometimes try for the latest breakfast seating and do the parks early before the reservation.

We've done most of these listed and we LOVE O'Hana. We did Hollywood and Vine last year between Xmas and NYE and didn't really care for it. Food very average, we were not bug fans of the characters and the ambiance was nothing special either. 1900 PF was just OK well (better than H&V). It is very chaotic there. We do like the dinner with the stepsisters---- they are FUNNY!
