Want to know if I thought it was worth it? Was the food good? Were the characters plentiful or rare?
We did the Minnie and friends Character Breakfast at the Plaza Inn.
To start- there was SO MUCH food. Hot foods, pastries, fresh fruit, and so on. Plus, unlike when eating at an IHOP or such, there are free refills on milks for the kids! YAY! (I know some restaurants give free milk refills but many don't.)
The characters were AWESOME! We saw some characters you can catch any day in the park- Minnie, Chip, Dale, Pooh, Tigger and Eeyore. But the interactions with these characters was different. I mean, Disney Daddy was able to challenge Minnie to a staring contest.
But seeing these characters, and even the food, didn't justify to this
What did justify the meal was
We were able to get almost all of our signatures within 90 minutes! We had seen Goofy and Pluto just before this, and then went and saw Mickey, and we were pretty happy with our autographs by then and could focus on the rides! It was GREAT!
There was a down side- we were so busy getting autographs and taking pictures and interacting with the characters that our food did get a little cold before we finished it. But it was still YUMMY food!
So, even though I am all about saving money on your Disneyland vacation- I completely suggest doing this breakfast. I talked to a lot of cast members and friends, and this was the Disneyland Character Meal that came the most recommended....and we definitely were not disappointed!
Have you experienced a character meal? What did you like or dislike? What rarely seen characters did you get to meet?
