Seated right at the window we had a brilliant view of cinderella's castle, food was nice especially the 'poohs breakfast lasagna'. We found this much better value than some other character meals for only $25 per adult, would visit again

I would say this place is just okay. From the outside and in the evening, it's gorgeous. But the food is just average. The service was good when we were here. But nothing to write home about on the food. We did a character dining experience here. Just to clarify the food wasn't bad, but it wasn't anything special.

So, my family and I gave this restaurant a second chance for breakfast. We had been here previously for lunch and were unimpressed to say the least. The breakfast is definitely better. They have an omelet station, along with an egg to order station. I love these because I really don't like omelets or scrambled eggs. They have Mickey waffles... More

We ate breakfast at the Crystal Palace on my daughter's birthday - she loved it! We were seated within minutes of arrival. Our server was wonderful and friendly. The food was really good - especially the winnie the pooh french toast and the breakfast lasagna! The characters were around within a reasonable amount of time and were very interactive with...

It was good food, and it was a buffet, but meeting Tiger, and Winnie the pooh Gang made it all worth it! They come to your table one at time, they dance with the kids. It was fun!

We ate dinner at the CP, and had a fun time. The buffet was hot, fresh, clean and had tons of choices. Our waiter was very friendly, and refilled our drinks without even having to ask. Always on top of it! It was a late dinner , 745pm, and we were seated by the window and watched the castle lights... More

I had just turned 17, and was at Disney world for a week to celebrate my birthday. I'll always love pooh bear so of COURSE I had to see them and I also love breakfast so why not enjoy both at the same time?! :) Like I say in all my Disney reviews- make a booking. Also get there with... More

Such a beautiful restaurant that has been on our Disney to do list for several years. I am not sure if it is because we went on our departure day or because we went for lunch but it was definitely not my favorite experience. The characters seemed rushed and the costumes looked a bit in need of a refurb or... More

We came here while at Disney Magic Kingdom. There was 3 of us and a 2 year old (which was free). By the time we got drinks and a cake to celebrate her birthday/ tips .. we left with a $160 bill. I feel like the experience was worth the price. My favorite character was Tigger. He got down with... More
