You never know who might show up! Delicious seasonal specialties make for a spectacular spread in this bright, happy space located beneath the quiet whisks of the monorail. Breakfast includes a premium fruit bar, cereal selections, American classics like pancakes (with fun toppings!), Mickey Mouse waffles, eggs, omelettes and pastries. Dinner is a delectable affair with roasted chicken, carved beef, savory sides and kids' favorites (like mac 'n' cheese). Make your meal end sweetly ever after at the sundae bar.

A breakfast for 4 here is easily in 150usd range. The breakfast buffet is large with some variety. I would classify the food as slightly above average, nothing spectacular. Having said that u are not paying for the food here your paying for your kids to do a meet and great with Mickey mine Donald and goofey all while your sat at the comfort of your table, the meet and greats are weak organized and there is no real wait times at all, characters spend a reasonable amount of time at each table. So for the time you save compared to lining up at park for each character individually the cost is well worth it! Remember u are not paying for a breakfast buffet that is 40$ a plate your paying for the characters. If you can realize this the whole experience will be ea whole lot more enjoyable. Also if your already on the Disney meal plan this restaurant can b booked as a part of your package. Book as early as possible it fills up quick

Excellent. Absolutely awesome. Don't miss it. Food great. Service very good. Read some of the poor reviews. Don't understand. Our experience was outstanding.

This is a great character dinning experience. That is what you are really paying for. It's located in the Contemporary Hotel where we were staying so it was really convenient for dinner our first night at the Hotel. First, the food. It is buffet style. Compared to some of the other buffets, I thought the food was pretty good. If using the Dining Plan, you get one adult beverage with the meal. As this was the first time using the Dinning Plan since Disney added this, we didn't know what to expect. My wife and I both got drink and we were expecting a watered down version of a cocktail, but much to our surprise, it was really strong. The buffet was pretty typical. One down side is the carving station. The meat was good, but they only gave you one tiny sliver of meat. If you want more, you had to keep going up. Like all Disney buffets, they have a nice kid's size table so the little ones could grab their own food and feel all grown up. But it's just chicken fingers, mac and cheese, and a vegetable. Now the characters were another story! It was actually a really fun atmosphere. There was singing and dancing and the characters were fun to interact with. It's not as boring or doesn't feel as rushed as some of the other character dining experiences seem. I think I would like to try Breakfast there once. Overall, we were really glad we went and had a really fun time. A perfect way to end our first day of vacation! I would recommend, at least once. Perhaps not good enough to make it a regular stop though.

For the price charged, the food was absolutely terrible. Not hot or even warm, and tasted like it had been sitting out for days. Yes, the kids get to meet the popular characters, but there are plenty of places in the parks to do that without spending $60 per person for a totally unappetizing meal. Stay away.
