Princess breakfast was expensive and so so

So my girls loved it and that is the key. My daughter who is three is still talking about the princesses. The only question is value. It is expensive and the food is hardly supreme. But it does fill the kids up before a long day in the park. We usually do this for the younger kids even though... read more

I would much rather pay for an expensive breakfast and have a line of princesses come to me than stand in line after line in the parks. My girls loved every minute and the food was outstanding. Would do this again for sure. The girls even liked the food.

With the big 60th anniversary going on at Disneyland this summer and with the new shows to accompany the big event, we thought it might be a good idea to opt for this dining package as they also give you a voucher for a preferred viewing area for The World of Color show.What a wonderful and pleasant surprise!

Took my daughters (6 and 13) for the princess lunch. They loved it. It was worth the money. You see Ariel when you first come in and then 4 princesses will come to your table and talk to the kids, sign autographs and take pictures with them. The look on my 6 year olds face was priceless.

Character dining with Disney princesses which our girls loved though pricey set menu breakfast with no variations allowed. I asked if my eggs can be poached instead of scrambled and the reply was no as the eggs come in liquid form to the kitchen. Enough said.

We ate here twice on our latest Disney adventure, once for the Princess Lunch and once for the World of Color Dinner Package. Both were a 3 course meal so considering everything (meeting 4 princesses at lunch & VIP/ front row seating for World of Color, plus resort dining) it was worth every cent. Do be sure to make reservations... More

So I'm sorry to say we had a not so good experience at this restaurant. But only one factor spoiled the mood and Disney himself couldn't control it! We were put outside on a very lovely, overcast, breezy day. My niece really loved being on the deck. But then it started raining, and the "cover" was definitely not waterproof. I... More

We made reservations for the World of Color Dining Package and it was worth every penny. Yes, it is pricey but the food was delicious and our viewing area was amazing for World of Color. The meal is a 3 course meal with soup/salad, entree, and dessert. I ordered the salad, which was huge and absolutely delicious with greens, apples,... More

This restaurant did not really do anything for me, though my daughter loved it (which makes that its only redeeming quality because the experience was for her). We opted to make reservations for lunch in order to have the character dining with the princesses. My first impression fell short of my expectations. What was thought to be magical experience of...

I enjoyed this experience and have been to many character dinners over the years. The food was by far the best that I have has in Orlando or Anaheim. Try the corn cakes. The princesses were delightful.
