    Thoughts on the choice between Cape May and Chef Mickey's for Breakfast w/ characters? (Looking for members of the Fab 5)

    Cape May has Goofy and friends. Minnie is in the side court (used to be Rip Tide Lounge).

    It's less hectic and much nicer food wise. :yes: (But very well attended, just more "calm").

    Thanks :) I think the "less hectic" may have sold me. Plus, we could walk to EPCOT afterwards, yes?

    Absolutely! :yes: One of the best reasons to go there.

    You do know it's closed for a bit, yes?

    I did, though from what I've read it should be re-opening on August 4th. Thanks for the heads up though...

    I think Cape May has better food and is a nicer restaurant, but Chef Mickey's provided a better experience :)

    Are the breakfast foods similar....I'm thinking yes, but thought I would check anyway.

    Not that I recall. Cape May had an extensive breakfast selection and it was prepared beautifully. I have a "thing" about hot food being hot and Cape May's met that expectation. Hard to do with a buffet.

    As I recall (it's been awhile since we've breakfasted there) they had many more selections than other breakfast buffets on property.

    I too would place Cape May ahead of Mickey's. The breakfast had a much wider selection and as mentioned, it is much less hectic and therefore quieter.

    Chef Mickey's was :mental: We liked it but if you are looking for a calm breakfast then it's definitely not the place.

    Have to go along with the crew. We have done both (as well as character breakfast at Ohana's) and would agree that is was certainly more peaceful at Cape May. It was sort of weird seeing all the characters in swimming attire, but sort of cool

    Chef Mickey's (we did that a few years ago) had more interaction though. It was DW's birthday so Mickey gave her lots of attention.
