Great buffet at any time, breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Characters enhance the great atmosphere, with parades for the children. If you think it's overpriced, then bring your baggies of cereal from home, and don't go there.

The food was good. I’m not one for buffets but I got myself a Mickey waffle. It was very expensive for the two of us.

We had done the breakfast here before and enjoyed it, so we tried the dinner this time. There were plenty of options and the food was good. We had good service & the characters were great (took their time at each table).
