When choosing to dine at the Walt Disney World resort, there are so many character breakfast options to choose from. A firm favourite for many years in my little family is the Supercalifragilistic Breakfast at 1900 Park Fare and today I am going to tell you why!
1. Character Interaction
Having eaten at almost every character dining restaurant across the resort, the one that consistently stands out to us is 1900 Park Fare. The character interactions have always been a delight each time we have eaten there and set the mood for a magical day at Disney. Although character appearances are always subject to change, you can usually expect to see Mad Hatter and Alice, Tigger and Winnie the Pooh and Mary Poppins. Each character visits your table as you dine to chat, sign autographs and to take photographs. Quinn adores meeting characters and loves eating at 1900 Park Fare due to the fun and chaos they cause together! Over the years there has been so many memories made here from making insaniTea with Hatter and giggling so much you give yourself the hiccups, to running away from kisses with Alice. Maybe for us its the variety of characters combined, but each breakfast experience has been filled with joy and laughter!
2. Character Photographs
As the characters move from table to table, I love that each meet is unique to them and the photos tell a story of the fun had that day! My Little Peter Pan loves to gift handmade stars to each character he meets, as for him it adds a little of his story to theirs. Sometimes it starts the conversation for him, or often he will gift a star to them as the meet comes to an end. Each day one of the characters meet with a Photopass photographer as you exit the restaurant. This allows a little more time for family pictures against a super cute backdrop. We have met Alice, Pooh and Tigger a few times here and each meet has been so memorable for both Quinn and I, with some lovely photos to take away with us.
The Supercalifragilistic Breakfast is an all you care to enjoy buffet with so many yummy options including custom made omelettes, pastries, cereals and of course those all important Mickey Waffles. My favourite picks from the buffet would have to be the red velvet pancakes with cream, the croissants, bacon and those all important tater tots! The price of the breakfast is currently $26 for children aged 3 – 9 and $44 for adults, or 1 table service meal on the Disney Dining Plan. Gratuity is not included. Discount is available for Annual Passholders and DVC Members (10%) and Tables in Wonderland is also accepted at the restaurant (20%).
I am biased as the Grand Floridian is my favourite resort on property, but I love the timeless, elegant theming of the restaurant and its surroundings. It’s classic Walt Disney World for me! The dining area is decorated in Victorian era flair and filled with pretty carousel horses. The restaurant is naturally bright and airy with it’s large glass doors, creating the perfect light for photos. A large concert organ built in France named “Big Bertha” takes pride of place towards the ceiling of the large dining room. It’s been a very long time since I heard it play, but it sounds so cute and reminds me very much of the Carrousel over in Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom.
The restaurant is conveniently located on the ground floor and is accessible from the front or back of the resort. It’s location is great if you are staying at a Monorail resort or coming over from Magic Kingdom on the Monorail. The restaurant is also close to the boat dock if you are visiting by water taxi. If you have a reservation and are driving over to the resort, you can park for the duration of your breakfast by confirming your reservation with Disney Security at the gate. If you have a little time before or after breakfast, I would highly recommend a stroll around the resort and its perfectly landscaped garden and beach.
