Hello, love your site, thanks for helping us dads plan. My question is we have reservations at both 1900 Park Fare and Crystal Palace for dinner. We have 4 year old boy/girl twins and a 7 year old daughter. Character wise I think they would like both, however I was wondering which was the better character/dining experience. So, how long will it take to eat at 1900 Park Fare including getting there and back from the Magic Kingdom? (I don’t want to waste a ton of time) 🙂
Dad’s it will take a while Answer
Thanks for the kind words. I’m only happy to help.
All sit down meals take a while. We usually figure about an hour to complete the meal. That includes time waiting for the table and eating. (Of course we eat real fast. If you like to enjoy your food, it might take longer.)
So, how long will it take to eat and all at 1900 Park Fare? About an hour and a half. The Grand Floridian is the last stop from the Magic Kingdom on the Resort loop, so that will take about 20 minutes. Getting back it only takes 5 – 10 minutes.
As to characters, it just depends on what the kids like. Do the like Winnie the Pooh characters, or do they like Cinderella? Would I do both? Maybe, it depends on how long we were going to be there, and what I would be missing if I went to both Character meals.
