The Characters of Cape May Café Breakfast Buffet


  Cape May Breakfast buffet is located at Disney’s Beach Club resort. It has a fun, sunny atmosphere and is easy to get to right off the lobby. The restaurant is surrounded by colorful beach umbrellas, and you may even see some sandcastles. The food is delicious with a super fun waffle station with toppings, omelets, fruit, and the best cheese grits I’ve had on property. However, the stars of the show are the characters you will get to see [...]

Chef Mickey’s Brunch


Chef Mickey’s is located at Disney’s Contemporary resort, which is on the monorail near the Magic Kingdom theme park. My favorite thing about this buffet is not that you get to see five characters all at once (although that is amazing), but it’s that you get to eat a mixture of breakfast and lunch foods. The prices for the brunch are listed in the below photo, as well as a sampling of some of the foods offered to guests dining [...]

The Best Restaurants You Don’t Need a Reservation For


  It’s a known fact that to get the first pick of reservation times at Disney restaurants, you have to book them six months in advance. But sometimes, we don’t always have the luxury of knowing when we are going to be on vacation, which often leads to a lack of availability at table service restaurants the closer it gets to your vacation dates! Quick service restaurants to the rescue! Not all theme park food consists of boring burgers, hot [...]

Dinner at Be Our Guest


Be our Guest is the newest restaurant at Disney World which opened in Magic Kingdom's New Fantasyland November 2013. It is a visually stunning restaurant. The exterior is very majestic, featuring Beast's castle which is located at the top of a rocky mountain terrain complete with snow caps and waterfall. One thing that needs to be mentioned is this restaurant doesn't have a princess vibe like some believe when they hear it has a Beauty and the Beast theme. This [...]
