I originally posted my food report over at the Disboards from our Disneyworld trip, and thought it might be enjoyed here on my blog.
If you have been to Disneyworld you may know the craziness of planning your meals 6 months ahead of your trip. Reservations can be made at 180 days for your trip and for some of the restaurants you may actually need to make your reservations at 180 days. For those of you wondering what to book for your trip I will be posting my reviews of the restaurants we dined at including pictures. We did do the Deluxe Dining plan so that meant we ate at a lot of restaurants during our trip. So here we go…
After a fairly restful sleep we packed up our things and headed to the Grand Floridian. We gave bell services our bags and checked in. It was around 10am and our room was not ready yet, but we were early for Park Faire.
Our reservation at Park Fare was for 11am but we thought we would try checking in early. They took us right away. We declined having the picture taken outside the restaurant. We were seated and our server was quick to take our drink orders.
Tigger was the first to stop at our table, when pooh arrived he stopped shook my daughters hand and than left we didn’t even have a chance to take a photo. We let our waitress know and the character handler made sure Pooh stopped by for a second time. Mary Poppins, Alice, and the Mad Hatter were all great. We had very good character interactions here. I made a photobook from our previous pictures with the characters for my daughter to use as an autograph book. We did get a lot more time with some characters because of the book. I got the idea from someone on the disboards and it does make a nice keepsake. I also noticed the later the reservation the better the interaction. I think the characters have more time to interact later in the day.
The food was a little better than some of the other character buffets. I had french toast with banana foster sauce, I found the sauce to be a little bitter, bacon, pineapple, breakfast potatoes, and lobster eggs benedict. The poached eggs had a cooked yolk a prefer a runny yolk on my poached eggs so I didn’t love it. My Daughter had mickey waffles, strawberries, bacon, and smoked salmon, and my husband had bacon, a pecan roll, scrambled eggs, ham, breakfast potatoes, smoked salmon, and lobster eggs benedict. He also did not like the fact that the yolks were cooked through. He did however really enjoy the scrambled eggs.
Overall we enjoyed our breakfast at 1900 Park Fare and would eat there again. Coming up next in my Disneyworld dining series our room at the Grand Floridian and dinner at the Flying Fish.
