This trip we are dining at chef mickeys,crystal palace,h&V, and akershus. Deciding between 1900 Park for dinner at 5:50 or Garden Grill at 7:25, which do you think would be good to end a busy day at MK? We have a 2.5yo & almost 1yo. Any other sugge

I hope you are getting excited for your vacation! It looks like you have had fun planning your dining, you've made some excellent choices.
Having traveled to the Walt Disney World® Resort numerous times when my oldest children were close in age to yours, I would suggest the 1900 Park Fare option. After a busy day at Magic Kingdom, trying to get over to Epcot for a 7:25 reservation at Garden Grill may be more stressful then enjoyable. I also found with my own children, an advanced dining reservation for anything later than 6pm at that age either resulted in a dinner meltdown, or a child sleeping on my lap while I tried to eat.
Staying close to the Magic Kingdom for dinner will be much more enjoyable for the whole family. Another suggestion is Whispering Canyon Cafe at Disney's Wilderness Lodge
. This lively and entertaining option is only a boat ride away from the Magic Kingdom, and could offer a welcome respite from character dining while still serving up a playful environment for your children. Your 2 1/2 year old might even enjoy getting in on the action when it's time for the hobby horse races around the restaurant.
I hope this information is helpful in your decision, Nicole. Please do not hesitate to ask any additional questions you may have when planning and preparing for a vacation with little ones.
Have a magical time!
