Crystal Palace with Pooh

One of the highlights I had planned for Magic Kingdom was a birthday dinner with Winnie the Pooh at the Crystal Palace for Tavish.  Earlier in the day we had tried to change our reservation time (book very early if you want a 5pm dinner reservation time) to 5 or earlier but I'm guessing everyone who had a later reservation tried to do the same thing as we could not get a earlier time (I think people were sick of the rain).  Kyle was a bit shocked to see the price of the meal and he had suggested that it just was not worth going (part of the reason for my earlier break down).  Anyway I finally convinced him we should go - I had reserved a cake with Tavish's name on it and we'd been been telling Tavish he'd have dinner with Pooh for weeks.  I'm really glad we did went as we all had a great time and really helped make up for such a crummy day.  Aside from a 10 minute wait (past our reservation time - Disney really needs to work on this) everything went perfect.  We all had a great time, it was amazing seeing Tavish's face light up as Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Piglet, and Eeyore all came to our table to say hi.  The food was really good too.   I would highly recommended going to a Character dinner if you have young kids they are not cheap but they sure are fun.  An early reservation time would be better as you don't want tired kids, Tavish was getting a bit sleepy by the end of dinner and as we all know that sleepy kids can lead to cranky kids (thankfully a birthday cake was all it took to make our tired boy happy again.  At the end of the day we were all glad that we stayed for Dinner and it was well worth the price.  It was a good end to a very trying day.
