    I was really hoping to take our kids to the character breakfast at Garden Grill, but it looks like they are only doing lunch and dinner character meals right now. Is this a temporary change? Will the Garden Grill character breakfast be back?

    Hi Lauren!

    Welcome to planDisney! We're so glad you're hEAR! I am such a fan of character dining experiences! We love being able to dine with the characters during our stay at Walt Disney World! It is a great way to either start out your vacation or put a finishing flourish on a fantastic week!

    At this time, The Garden Grill Restaurant is serving Chip 'n' Dale's Harvest Feast for lunch and dinner only. As we enter 2022, Disney Parks and Resorts are reopening many of your favorite restaurants and dining experiences.  While we do not have a set date for the breakfast option to return at The Garden Grill, we are hopeful that this character experience will return soon. If it is a character breakfast you are searching for, let me make some recommendations. One of the best character breakfast dining experiences we've had has been at Topolino's - Flavors of the Riviera. Mickey, Minnie, and pals are dressed to their artistic best, and parade around the dining room while you enjoy a scrumptious breakfast of quiche Lorraine or smoked salmon.  The views of the resort and Disney Skyliner are spectacular. Another classic and favorite character breakfast is the signature Chef Mickey's, an all-you-care-to-enjoy breakfast experience at Disney's Contemporary Resort. Guests are joined by the fab five, while you dine on brisket, muffins, and, of course, Mickey waffles. Hopefully, these selections might help your family find a great breakfast with characters.

    Character Breakfast Tip: Make sure to keep your phone and/or camera out and ready. As the characters do not stop at each table, due to social distancing guidelines, they will pose for a photo from afar. It's best to keep your device handy for the moment when they arrive or are within view.

    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!
