Chef Mickey's or Crystal Palace Breakfast on Departure Day?

Which would you choose... Chef Mickey's or Crystal Palace breakfast on your departure day. We have a 5:30pm flight. We are staying at the WL and want a MK area meal. This will be a late breakfast/brunch. We got an extra park day with our spring special so we will likely stop by MK for a couple of rides. Meal will be just me and my DD (6 at the time). No real character preference. We will already have met Mickey. Haven't been to either of these and can't decide between the 2. Right now there are plenty of time slots for both but I worry by the time I decide they will be gone!

Whispering Canyon at WL is better than both IMHO.

Really... that is good to hear. Certainly the most convenient! I am not a huge buffet person so that might actually work out better.

How about Grand Floridian Cafe then? They have great Eggs Benedict and they have waffles for kids.

I've never done Chef Mickey's but I love Crystal Palace. The food is yummy and if you book an early ADR you can walk down Main Street and get pics before the park opens. I love their breakfast lasagna!

We have eaten at both and thought Crystal Palace was better. Crystal Palace is the one food place my boys want to return to on our next trip!

I say crystal palace. I have stopped going to chef mickeys for years now. It wasn't worth it. Plus the characters are all over the park. Crystal palace gives the character experience something different with pooh and friends.

'Ohana at the Poly has a really great character breakfast and it's not a buffet (it's served family style at the table). We always enjoy it.

Out of the 2 you asked about, I'd go with Crystal Palace. The character interaction is great, and we've found the food better there, than at Chef Mickey's.

I've been to both breakfasts...my son is a HUGE tigger fan so it's always crystal palace for us. If u have already met Mickey then I would definitely go with crystal palace it's definitely 1 of my family's favorites
