Any reports on the latest characters at this breakfast. All I have seen is that Mary Poppins, Mad Hatter and Gepetto are there. Has anyone been recently and who exactly was there?

We were just there about 2 weeks ago. We had Mary Poppins, Mad Hatter, Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, and Alice in Wonderland. I thought the food was just average, but my DD LOVED the characters. They really spent a lot of time with each table.

Hope this helps:D

Yes, the Pinocchio characters are gone, the Pooh characters are in. It's usually Pooh and at least 1 friend (Tigger, Eeyore, Piglet, and I've even heard Rabbit occasionally). Alice, the Mad Hatter, and Mary Poppins are still there.

We saw the same characters this past Sunday. While you are there, watch for Boyd. He busses the tables with a lot of flair. We love to watch him when we go.

Thanks for the info too! We are staying at GF in October and plan on this breakfast. Though I wish they had more charectors. I love Winnie but he tends to show up everywhere.

We enjoyed the buffet a few weeks ago. It was fun to see Pooh Bear but the MadHatter was irritating. Maybe it was just too early in the morning! http://www.wdwinfo.com/sites/family/silly.gif

Hi montessori
how did the mad hatter irritate you?

Hi Ken,
He was just very loud in that high kind of twangy "madhattery" voice. To be fair though, we had a very late night the night before and it was quite early in the morning. http://www.wdwinfo.com/sites/family/jump1.gif http://www.wdwinfo.com/sites/family/jump1.gif

We didn't have any children with us, we had heard the buffet was good. We did enjoy it, it seems each buffet has it's own specialty item and this one had delicious cheesy hash brown potatoes. http://www.wdwinfo.com/sites/family/hapfac01.gif

We were there on July 23rd and saw Mary Poppins and The Madhatter in the lobby; inside the dining room we saw Pooh and Alladin.

Does this mean its Pooh in the morning and the evening too ? If so thats so dissapointing. I used to love this place as a great alternative to the typical "Mickey and friends" / "Pooh and friends" meals that are everywhere. Now I'll be staying there and its become typical :(

I have some great video of when my daughter was 2 and we met the Beast in the lobby for dinner. My months of prepping her paid of, she wasn't scared at all ;)

Anyone see any different characters lately ?

I guess we got an extra character or two on July 21 -- Mary Poppins in the lobby plus Pooh, Tigger, Alice, Mad Hatter and Aladdin visiting tables.

BTW, we loved the Mad Hatter. He was hysterical.

When I called to make my PS for October, I was told that the characters were Alice, Mary Poppins, Mad Hatter, March Hare, and Pooh and friends. I don't mind that Pooh is going to be there, as long as the others are too! They probably added Pooh to entice people with littler kids to come, since they wouldn't be familiar with the other characters. I think it is great...something for everyone, and great food, too!
