    Hi my name is Fallon I just wanted to know where would be the best place to take my 7 year old for a character breakfast we are not staying at a Disney property

    Hiya, Fallon! I'm so glad you came to planDisney with this question, giving me the chance to share my love of Character Dining with you. There are so many opportunities to enjoy a meal with characters throughout Walt Disney World Resort. I love them all!

    For breakfast with members of the Fab 5 inside a park, it's Tusker House Restaurant in Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park for me! I absolutely love that this restaurant is all about my favorite, original angry bird Donald Duck. At Tusker House, Donald invites you on a tasty safari with his friends Mickey Mouse, Daisy Duck and Goofy. Their safari outfits are adorable. Inspired by its surroundings in the middle of Africa, it has one of the most unique and tasty menus. There are also classic favorites for less adventurous appetites. My favorite waffles are Mickey-shaped, but the Simba waffles at breakfast are tasty and fun, too! 

    If you are looking for a meal with character that is outside a theme park, breakfast at Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera at Disney's Riviera Resort is the place to go. You do not need to stay here to enjoy breakfast with Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Daisy. Their outfits show off their artistic talents and are also so adorable. The photo opps with these talented friends are always fun, but here they also have a fun dance to bring extra joy. The breakfast is amazing! I love the Quiche Gruyère and the Sour Cream Waffles. My kids love the Mickey-shaped Waffle Dippers. Mickey Waffles on a stick with sauces for dipping? Yes, please! Don't miss a chance to go out on the terrace. The views are spectacular.

    Chef Mickey's inside Disney's Contemporary Resort is one of the most quintessential character meals. Can you think of anything more "Disney" than enjoying breakfast with Mickey and his pals while a Monorail drives overhead? It is a classic!

    For dining at a Disney Collection Resort, you can use Disney's complimentary transportation from a theme park or you can park at the resort while enjoying your meal. Just be sure to have your reservation on the My Disney Experience app and picture identification ready for the Cast Member at the resort gate. 

    I hope your breakfast is full of character! Please come back to planDisney with any other questions. We love to dish on our favorite dining!
