    We will be eating a quick breakfast in our room. Probably just PopTarts. We have dinner reservations at Chef Mickey's at 8:05 pm.

    Which lunch time for Tony's sounds better, 11:40 or 1:40? We also have 2 snack credits to tide us over.

    I would do the 1:40 and try to get a bunch of touring at magic Kingdom early. When we were there 2 weeks ago we went early to park(close to rope drop but didn't quite make it) and walked on every ride we wanted to do. We stopped at Main Street bakery at like 11 and had a delicious and huge cinnamon roll for 1 snack credit and then ate lunch at around 1:30. We then went back to the room for several hours and went swimming and did Chef Mickeys after that. It worked out really well!

    EAT Every FOUR HOURS.......For some reason at WDW we get hungry faster ? Maybe all of the walking...

    So I agree with PP.... the later 1pm or so...

    My rule has always been ...

    We will NOT Leave the room until everyone has had a breakfast snack....

    We bring pop tarts... muffins, grits, oatmeal, cereal, cereal bars.....etc.

    EVEN if we have a breakfast ADR !!! (Think leave room ride bus get to destination wait for breakfast, order) I don't like the morning "crankies"

    Try to get some protein options for breakfast too. If you eat around 8a... then head to park. Then by 1p you'll be plenty hungry.... (actually by 12n) and then hungry again around 4p-5p that will be the time to use those snack options....then ADR at 8p at which you'll probably be seated at 8p, order drinks, then place order then get your order... right at the four hour mark.....

    Have a magical visit !

    Not sure what time you're heading to the parks but for us we would pick the 1140. I don't eat breakfast so by 1140 I'm ready for something. My DS8 has lunch at school at 1130 so he is used to eating at that time frame. I have a parent who is diabetic and this helps keep her blood levels stable. If any of those reasons apply to you then I would do the earlier. Plus if you have snack credits then you could got a mickey ice cream ect around 4-5pm if you start to get hungry to tide you over to dinner. I would prefer to give my child a snack in between lunch and dinner then before lunch time.
