    I can't decide which character breakfast to do between the Crystal Palace and The Cape May Cafe. Which do you think a 5 year old girl would like best? The menu seems better at Cape May? But I want my granddaughter to be happy. Can you help me decide?

    Hi there Kathie!  Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!  I have personally dined at the Beach Club Breakfast Buffet at Cape May Cafe, located in Disney's Beach Club Resort, and The Crystal Palace, located in Magic Kingdom Park, numerous times and enjoyed them both immensely! You honestly can't go wrong with either of these Character Dining Experiences! Cape May Cafe traditionally features Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, and Goofy in their beach attire; whereas, The Crystal Palace features Winnie the Pooh and Friends. Please know that Characters are subject to change. Both of these dining locations offer a bountiful buffet that is all-you-care-to-eat. I did personally prefer the buffet selections slightly more at Cape May Cafe. I would consider which characters your granddaughter would prefer to meet and which location is most convenient for you when making your decision. When my four children were toddlers, we always booked The Crystal Palace; however, as they reached pre-school and school-age, they preferred to dine with Mickey Mouse and friends. If your granddaughter is a fan of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse on Disney Junior, then I would choose Cape May Cafe. I don't think you can ever go wrong in choosing a Character Dining Experience with Minnie Mouse, when it comes to little girls! I hope this information helps in making your decision! Please don't hesitate to write me back with any additional questions. Best wishes for a magical trip, Kathie!
    Happy Planning,
