The first thing we had scheduled for our trip to Disneyland was a character breakfast. The Man, Nana & I were all excited for Munchkin to meet some of her favorite characters and we thought that this would be a perfect way to do it. We decided on the Minnie & Friends breakfast at the Plaza Inn at the end of Main Street in the park. I’ve done several character meals at Walt Disney World and I was expecting to see four characters. I was blown away by the number of characters that visited us while we ate breakfast! We had twelve different characters come by our table. It was hard to find time to eat because there was always someone new coming by! We had an 8:40 reservation and when we got to the restaurant it was pretty empty. So several of the characters came by our table two and three times.
Munchkin did so well with the characters! The only ones she didn’t care for were Captain Hook and Rafiki from Lion King (which she hadn’t seen yet. That problem has been rectified.) She was super excited to see Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Pluto, Winnie the Pooh, Tigegr and Eeyore. She also did well with Chip & Dale, The Fairy Godmother from Cinderella. She was indifferent to Max, Goofy’s son (or nephew? I have no clue…I was indifferent to him too!) We had to wait the longest to see Tigger and Munchkin just watched home visit with the tables before us. She was so excited when he got to our table! He spent a lot of time with each guest, bouncing and letting families take lots of photos. I’m just glad he didn’t bounce any of us!
The food was good too. Mickey Mouse waffles, fresh fruit, omelets made to order (I didn’t like mine but everything else was good!) pastries, and lots of other breakfast foods. It was hard to eat with so many characters! Who wants to eat when you can meet friends?!?! We will be doing this breakfast again, that’s how much we enjoyed it!
