We booked the Minnie’s Beach Bash Breakfast at Cape May Café for our final Walt Disney World character meal towards the end of our trip to Orlando. At this buffet style breakfast at the quaint Beach Club Resort, we met Minnie Mouse, Goofy and Donald Duck all decked out in their swimwear.
I managed to book this breakfast only a few days before and I’m glad I did – the food was pretty good and we enjoyed the experience. I’d still recommend trying to book the character meals further in advance; we might have just lucked out that there was a cancellation just in time.
Tip: Sign up to the My Disney Experience website or app and start booking your dining reservations up to 180 days ahead of your trip – popular restaurant bookings go quickly! You can always cancel or amend your reservation up to 24 hours before. Phone numbers must be 10 digits, so to book with your UK number, drop the first ‘0’.
Meeting the Characters
Little T participated in a parade, pretending to swim with Goofy, and he enjoyed watching the characters from our table and of course meeting them and getting autographs whenever they stopped by our table. It was pretty quiet when we visited and we had plenty of time to interact with each character. I loved that they also did a couple of fun parades and games during the breakfast, involving the children for some time.
Cape May Cafe offers a good breakfast buffet with the usual items: Mickey waffles, bacon and sausages, quiche and scrambled eggs, pastries, pancakes with lots of sweet toppings, cold cuts, roasted ham, asparagus and hollandaise sauce, etc.
The Beach Club Resort
Disney’s Beach Club Resort is located within walking distance to Epcot and has a charming New-England inspired design.
We only briefly explored the resort, mainly having a look at its famous swimming pool that features waterslides, a lazy river and a big pirate ship!
The Minnie’s Beach Bash Breakfast was a wonderful opportunity to meet Minnie, Donald Duck and Goofy, with plenty of individual interaction. There was a good selection at the buffet and a mix of healthy and indulgent items – again, something there for everyone. Service was fantastic, with a very friendly server and a helpful restaurant manager, both frequently checking in with us, to see if we needed anything or were waiting to meet a character. Overall, a great experience and a place I would recommend for a character meal at Walt Disney World.
