Breakfast with Minnie & Friends

Breakfast with Minnie & Friends is the only character dining option within Disneyland Park. It’s located at the Plaza Inn restaurant just off Main St. They are most famous for their Fried Chicken Dinner, which is fabulous, but the breakfast buffet is fantastic in its own right.

After checking in with your reservation, yes you should make one, they immediately take pictures of your group. The pictures will be printed and placed into a keepsake portfolio that you may purchase during your meal. You can decline having the picture taken if you want. After pictures you are taken to a cashier to pay and then it’s off to your table. Our host also gave us a little mini-tour of the buffet before taking us to our seats. I have a few food allergies, which I mentioned at check-in, and as soon as we sat down I was told that the chef would come out to talk to me. The chef came out right away to let me know what was safe to eat and what I needed to avoid in the buffet lines. She also offered to make me a special fruit plate, since one of my allergies is pineapple, to ensure that the fruit I ate hadn’t come into any contact with pineapple, as it’s all together in the buffet.

The breakfast is served via several different buffet stations. On the day we attended they had the following items to choose from: Mickey waffles, pancakes, French Toast, scrambled eggs, hash browns, chicken fried steak, biscuits & gravy, country potatoes, an omelet station, bacon, ham, sausage, oatmeal, cold cereals, fresh fruit, fruit toppings, jello, yogurt parfaits, and a variety of small pastries. They also have a self serve drink counter with soda, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, orange juice, apple juice, milk, chocolate milk, and water.

We tried a little of everything they had to offer and the food was all good. The bacon was a little too limp for my taste, and some of the pastries were dry, but other than that I have no complaints at all about the food. My two favorite items from the buffet were the Biscuits & Gravy and the Mickey Waffles. This time I chose to just have blueberries with my waffles, but the caramel banana sauce that they offer with them is phenomenal.

When dining out the food is extremely important, but with a character breakfast the experience is what you’re really paying for. There was no disappointment here in regards to the food or the character interactions. If you’re looking for the dining experience with the most variety of characters then this is the one for you. We were there for about an hour and a half, and in that time there were very few moments when there wasn’t a character at our table, or at least close in proximity. The characters there that morning were: Minnie (of course), Rafiki, Captain Hook, Tigger, Eeyore, Chip, Dale, Gideon, Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother, and a Mary Poppins Penguin. They all spent a lot of time at each table while we were there. Each character came through the dining room at least twice, sometimes more, and they were extremely playful with kids and adults alike. In fact, I need to go back to take more pictures of the food, as we were so overwhelmed by character interactions that I forgot to take pictures of all the edible items. Definitely not a bad thing.

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed the meal and recommend it as the best character breakfast at the Disneyland Resort, in terms of both food and variety of characters. Though a couple of the other buffets have a better variety of food, the extra characters here bump it up to best as far a character dining for me. If you’ve eaten at the Minnie & Friends breakfast, let us know your experience. Be sure to check the Disneyland website for current prices and to make your reservation.

Enjoy and Happy Eating!!
