CRT breakfast , lunch or dinner?

Just wondering which one do people recommend? Do the princesses attend them all? Thanks

The princesses are at all meals

We like breakfast as the lunch and dinner menus just don't appeal to us.

The breakfast food was very good

We decided on an early breakfast meal at CRT ~ a nice almost-empty Park for Main Street and Castle photo's and also you're not restricted to having to be at a certain place at a certain time midway through the day. Holidaying with young children last trip we found our plans tended to change at short notice afternoons onward

Breakfast was much better than dinner in my opinion.

We felt a bit rushed at dinner as it was a 3 course. Where as breakfast you have your pasteurise then what you ordered and are left to eat etc. When we had dinner our main was brought over before we finished our starter.

Do u think it is worth the money? I did breakfast there 6 years ago and it seemed rather rushed. It was my DD birthday as well. Never been back since

We have paid OOP once and on the DDP once.

It is not great value on either really but it is certainly an experience. I think I would only pay OOP again if it was a special occasion as it is a lot of money for breakfast. I will use DDP credits there quite happily if on free DDP.

We were on the ddp I don't think I would pay to eat there.

I agree it's the experience you are paying for. DD loves it though getting her wand and wishing star, making a wish, meeting the princesses. X

Were only on the QSDP so we would be paying OOP. Not sure if my inlaws or my son would enjoy it so I'm thinking of having a girlie meal with my daughter (aged 10) and leaving the hubby,son and inlaws to do their own thing haha

That sounds lovely. Im currently debating booking a CRT breakfast or lunch and the only reason Im leaning towards breakfast is so I can get some quiet photos on main street before all the hoards wander in

I have done breakfast and lunch here several times and personally prefer the lunch menu. It is frenetic in there at all times I think. I would say though that once the mine train opens that an early seating there and the chance to get to the front of that line first is appealing! It's not like Chef Mickey's either where you don't always see all the characters. We have always seen all the princesses and they really make a fuss of little girls. The thing that slows it all down are the handful of 'entitled' families who inevitably want a marathon photo session with every single character. And video footage. And then some more photos. And a chat. They get on my nerves......

You are at disney you have paid thousands to be there you deserve a marathon photo session. Ha ha. I know what you mean. We met Rapunzel and Snow White behind a family with 5 girls they had separate photos, sister photos, cousin photos and the mum wanted one with just Rapunzel. DD is normally very good waiting but she was getting fed up waiting in between princesses.

Keep trying every day on line. I got BOG at 90 days pre trip when it had shown as full every day for two weeks. People do cancel.
