    Hi! 1st time @ WDW 2/19-2/25 2011. 2 adults-2 10y/o girls. Staying @ Port Orleans-Frnch Qtr. Have deluxe dining plan. Need help deciding where/when to book sit down dinner/b-fast. Our girls have outgrown Princesses but I'd like characters. Thanks!

    Hi Julee! My daughter is starting to think she's too old for princesses too, and that makes me kind of sad!  However, there are lots of other fun character meals at Disney. Consider breakfast at the Cape May Cafe in the Beach Club Resort. Goofy and friends make the rounds at this plentiful buffet, which in my opinion, is a less-crowded version of Chef Mickey's. Each time I've dined there the food has been great, and the characters have stopped by my table multiple times. Plan to dine here on the day you're visiting Epcot or Hollywood Studios, as the Beach Club is very conveniently located to both of those parks. After dinner you can walk to Epcot or hop on a boat to the Studios.

    Another fun breakfast option is the Best Friends Breakfast with Lilo and Stitch at 'Ohana in the Polynesian Resort. Breakfast here is brought to your table family-style and includes eggs, sausage, bacon, potatoes, fruit and breads.  'Ohana is a great spot to visit before heading to the Magic Kingdom, which is just a short monorail ride away.

    For dinner, it's hard to go wrong with Chef Mickey's. The gigantic buffet has lots of tasty options, the restaurant is always full of energy, and of course you get to see the Big Cheese himself. It's convenient to the Magic Kingdom, so make your reservation at Chef Mickey's on the day you're visiting that park.

    You didn't mention lunch, but you might want to consider Les Chefs de France in Epcot. Remy, the adorable rat from Ratatouille, has been periodically popping out from a silver dome on a rolling cheese cart. Remy has been making the rounds of the restaurant Monday through Saturday at approximately 12:30, 1:40, 2:50 and 5:20 p.m. Unlike a character meal, in which every table receives a visit, Remy travels through Chefs de France once during his appearance times, so make your reservation at least thirty minutes prior to one of his appearances for the best chance of receiving a visit.

    Hope this helps!
