Niagara Falls via Toronto with kids

Nikki7280 | May 16, 201710:53 AM

Hello everyone! Taking the family (3 adults, 3 kids -11/8/7) on a roadtrip in July. Land at YYZ July 1st, grab car rental from YTZ and then heading to Niagara Falls since we have limited time (and want to do Toronto properly on another trip). Looking for some feedback/suggestions on our itinerary for this part of the trip.

Need lunch place on the way from YTZ to Niagara Falls Sat July 1st - something quick, we can do fast food if needed just thought someone might have a gem or to go idea that would be better...

Afternoon July 1st we check in at Sheraton on the Falls, going straight to visitors center to get timed tickets for major activities and then I figure we will have time to kill due to it being peak and a Sat AND Canada Day so I penciled in Niagara Glen and White Water Walk, Journey/Niagara's Fury and then dinner at the Skylon Tower buffet - my expectations here are not high, just thinking observation deck for the kids/view plus buffet and being there at sunset to see falls lit up might be easier than trying to take on something else, especially when tired from a long day of travel and hiking and the prices are very reasonable all things considered unless somebody has a better idea!

Morning July 2nd - breakfast ideas? Ideally something quick again because my plan was to pedestrian cross the bridge, do Cave of the Winds and then go back to Hornblower Cruise and then checkout (12pm).

At that point back in the car and headed to Greg Frewin's show so looking for a lunch spot somewhere in that vicinity before heading back to the US side.

Thanks so much in advance!
