    Hi Erin, Thanks for your advice. Was looking into the Fantasmic! Package with the Brown Derby. Is it worth the 2 dp? And for two adults who want a little fantasy with their breakfast, but good food, what character breakfast would work best?

    Hi Erica,

    I like the Brown Derby. The food is delish, but there are other two-credit meals I like better. In my opinion, the signature dining experiences in the resorts feel more relaxed, refined, and just "nicer" than the ones in the parks. There is no dress code for the park signature meals, people wear whatever they've been walking around the parks in. Whereas the signature restaurants in the resorts ask that gets wear "resort casual" clothing. The pace of dining is slower in the resort signature restaurants, and often there are unique menu items such as a port flight or cheese tasting. For two credits, watching Wishes at California Grill or strolling by the animal viewing areas at the Animal Kingdom Lodge after dining at Jiko will give you more bang for your buck.

    As for the Fantasmic component, the reserved seating for the show is indeed reserved for you, but it's not the absolutely best view. The seats are off to the side a bit. You can always get into the show and sit where you want if you just wait a bit. Snack on a caramel apple and play Angry Birds on your phone and the wait will be over before you know it.

    I'm a big fan of character meals for adults. I applaud your spirit of fun! I like the food at Tusker House. This character meal at the Animal Kingdom is hosted by Donald Duck and features several other classic Disney characters. They serve traditional American food at breakfast: eggs, bacon, donuts, fruit, and fresh hot Mickey waffles. But they also have a table full of unique African dishes, many of which I've only had there. It's a good blend of comfort and flair. The breakfast food at Cinderella's Royal Table is totally yum, the stuffed French toast is TO DIE FOR, but that's a two-credit experience, so you might want to pass on that. Cape May Cafe at the Beach Club is perhaps the calmest character meal. Adults often like it for that reason.

    I'm happy to help if you need more info.
