Not sure is it possible today isn't weekend, but 萬年商場looks pathetic. Barely any customers and many shops not opened as compared to last year when I was there last year October...
One interesting thing is XMD is really changing and new shops popping up fast.

I don't recall seeing this stall last year. Buy taste average average, had better ones before.

I was asking my hotel's front desk to recommend locals go to breakfast in XMD, and he says XMD永和豆漿and西門町豆漿. But I tried both before, honestly they aren't impressive leh... I think the pushcarts food in the morning taste better leh.

Your challenge should be the two children bah. Factor in about one hour at customs, one hour to travel from airport to Taipei Main Station.

8 am is better. remember to prepare some cookies or bars or milk power for the children.
by the time u arrive taipei thats ard 2pm.

if u do 12noon flight, by the time you get out of custom, its 5:30pm. The wait at the custom is tearweeber. plus 4pm alot of china flights/ viet flights landed. the clearance from these ppl is alot longer than our passport. My group Q for 1 hour 15 mins ish. imho children tend to be more patience during the mid day than evening. by the time we arrive at taoyuan HSR, it was 1800hrs. we landed 3pm, go toilet, walk walk walk, start Q at 3:30
so by the time we clear customs, the SNAKE behind us was longer x3 times as compare to when we started Q-ing

conclusion: talk to ur wife, ask her about the children gao-jek time and their makan time and nap time

Depends.
If it is a carrying toddler, we will go over to that queue.
Do not ask me how old, coz some kids are well giants.

I personally will take that.
Coming back take the one that departs about 2plus.
Sometimes delay, at least it is a buffer.
