    i've done Crystal Palace, not Chef Mickeys, so i can't compare the two. but, we did enjoy Crystal Palace a lot, and i do highly recommend it.

    the breakfast lasagna is awesome!

    I've only done Chef Mickey's for breakfast, haven't done Crystal Palace at all. I was really with disappointed by Chef Mickey's, especially the food. Who will be in your party? Any children?

    Have done both and for breakfast we prefer Crystal Palace. We actually prefer lunch or dinner at both places over breakfast at either, but if you are specifically looking breakfast then I would recommend CP. CP is always our first meal of each trip. We love the restaurant, it is very pretty inside and the natural lighting because of all the glass makes for beautiful pictures with the characters. Plus...it's in the MK and that's always the first park of our vacation! Chef Mickey's is not to be missed either though if you can fit it into your schedule...try it out for dinner! Have a great time and welcome to DWT!!!!

    I have never been to Crystal Palace, just Chef Mickey's - so I can't compare the 2. But I did love Chef Mickeys! You get to check out the Contemporary and we had a great view of the castle from our table. The variety of food was great and we had an awesome server!

    I say do both! hee hee
    Nothing to countdown to, so just smile and be happy everyday!

    Crystal Palace was really good for breakfast/lunch, we got there at 10:30 and at around 11 they started putting lunch items out. Never did Chef Mickey's.

    I love them both, and suggest that you try each of them .. I guess a lot should depend on what characetrs you want to see... Mickey and gang, or Pooh and pals?

    I was going to say what Ace said! Do one on Monday and the other on Tuesday! My WDW mantra is "indulge!"

    Made Reservations for Crystal Palace for Breakfast for our trip. Just found out that now it will be a EMH morning for MK. Does anyone know if this will be a problem and make it a not good experience?
