How long can we expect breakfast at Chef Mickey's or the Tusker House to last? We are trying to figure out when to make the reservation. If we have an 8am reservation, what would be a good time to schedule our first fast pass appointment? Thanks!

Generally, I like to allow about an hour and a half for a character dining experience. You want to be sure you have enough time to enjoy all the characters who will come to your table as you eat your meal.
Chef Mickey's is at the Contemporary Resort, so you will also need to allow time to travel to Magic Kingdom by foot or monorail after your meal and to get through the entry gates. For an 8 a.m. reservation, I wouldn't book a FastPass+ choice any earlier than 10 a.m.
At Tusker House, you already will be inside Animal Kingdom, so you should be safe with a FastPass+ as early as 9:30 to 9:45. (The Kilimanjaro Safari is very near Tusker House, by the way.)
