Sunday- Biergarten for dinner

Monday- Teppan Edo for dinner

Tuesday- Crystal palace for lunch

Wednesday- Prime Time for dinner

Thursday- Tusker house for lunch

Friday- Chef Mickey's for breakfast



This would put us one over for our dining plan.  We're arriving in florida at 10 am on Sunday and departing 6 pm on Friday.  We want to make the most of our time.  


Is it worth going over the alotted table services or should I cut something out?

Love Crystal Palace for lunch. I prefer Tusker House for breakfast. I, personally, wouldn't choose Biergarten or Prime Time, (I wouldn't waste a TS credit anywhere in DHS), and I prefer Tokyo Dining to Teppan Edo, but I can eat hibachi food here at home. 

Chef Mickey's is a sore subject for me. It tends to pull people in one or two directions. If you love it, you love it. If you hate it, you HATE it and would like to see the place burn to rubble. I am in the latter catagory.

What is the make up of your group?   Adults, kids.   What are the other meals you are planning to eat on those days?

For me that is a lot of character dining (we usually do one per trip) but we go every year.   If this is a once in a lifetime (or not as frequent a trip as ours) then I think you have all the main characters covered.   The last few trips I have noticed that the quality of the buffet offerings have gone down a bit.   Still good but not what it used to be.   I think disney knows that you are not at a character meal for the food.

I wish I would have done the Cindy Prince Charming and Stepsisters dinner.

The entertainment at Biergarten was fun but the good was awful. We loved Prime Time - we've gone several times.

I only see two character meals? Tusker lunch isn't character, only breakfast ( unless something had changed since last month?)

I thought it was when we were there a few months ago.

Just checked the disney website. Maybe they need to update since you were there a month ago.

If you want to do all of those, then just pay for one out of pocket..

We ended up not going for lunch because I thought it was only breakfast ... oh well, we got Ohana which we LOVED, so all was not lost!

Teppan Edo and Prime Time are my favorites! You'll be repeating some characters with Chef Mickey's and Tusker House. If you want to cut one meal, I'd cut one of them.
