Dear Monorails & Mickey Tales: Planning a trip for the spring with myself, hubby, and our 3-year-old son. It will be our son's first trip to Disney. Should we splurge on a character meal?
The biggest question is whether he'll be scared of the life-sized characters. I've been with two 3-year-olds who HATED Crystal Palace (and any other character interactions). So I might save those more expensive meals until a later trip when you're sure he'll like that kind of interaction. In the meantime Coral Reef at Epcot is very enchanting for all ages. Beaches and Cream Soda Shop at the Beach Club Resort is colorful and will definitely have food (and dessert!) options he'll love.
