Cape May Cafe': My Favorite Character Breakfast

My family has been traveling to the Walt Disney World Resort for longer than I have memory.  From the time that I was a small child, until today we're always had breakfast with the Character at least once a trip.  It's a tradition that the foodie in me enjoys more than any other. We've had breakfast with our Disney favorites at Crystal Palace, Chef Mickey's, 1900 Park Fare, and even Cinderella's Royal Table, but my very favorite place to dine with the Characters has to be the Cape May Cafe' at Disney's Beach Club Resort.

The food at Cape May Cafe is, in my opinion, a higher quality than offered at any other Character Buffet on property. The flavors here are rich and full, hot food is kept hot, and cold foods stay cold.  The buffet is never as messy as I've seen the one look at Chef Mickey's.  Some of my favorites include the following: breakfast buffet serves fresh fruits and berries, along with yogurt and assorted hot & cold cereals. Scrambled eggs, omelets, eggs to order, and several delicious "baked breakfast" selections. There are always biscuits and gravy, Pan Baked French Toast, and Mickey waffles as well as asparagus, bacon and sausage, seasoned potatoes. If you're looking for something sweet try the bread pudding with vanilla sauce, muffins, danish, or donuts. Coffee, tea and juice selections are available as well as Mimosas and Bloody Marys that can be special ordered.

Characters that regularly appear at Cape May include Donald Duck, Goofy, and Minnie Mouse all in their Beach attire.  On my last visit I had the joy of watching them interact with a blind child at the table next to us.  I was in tears observing how tender and gentle they were allowing the child to touch all over their heads, faces and bodies so that he could get to know them.  They played touch games, and the boy was delighted. It was a truly magical moment that made me proud to call myself a Disney fan.

Seasonal and Holiday pricing may apply at Disney's discretion. These prices include tax but NOT gratuity per person, any alcohol is served at an additional fee. This restaurant also honors the Tables in Wonderland discount.
