I made my late August ADRs the other day, and selected Crystal Palace on August 30th for lunch. My reasoning was that our first day (half day) would be spent at Epcot, with dinner at Teppan Edo and the next full day would start out at Animal Kingdom with a Tusker House breakfast, mid-day break and then back to MK for the evening EHs. I figured we could sleep a bit late on the 30th, and get a later start. We haven't been to Crystal Palace yet, but I'm thinking it's just another buffet with characters and we'll be at Akershus the next morning, and Cape May the day after that - so we will get to see plenty of characters. Our group is my sister and I and DD who is 9. My other alternative for the late morning is Epcot, and then head over to DHS for the evening EHs (no Fantasmic so hopefully it's won't be crazy busy). So is Crystal Palace worth staying around MK for, or how about a nice lunch at La Cellier or a dinner at Mama Melrose? Sorry for the rambling and I appreciate any words of advice. Thanks!
