Grinch Breakfast?

Has anyone done the Grinch Breakfast? Worth price/experience? Our DD8 x 2 like Grinch, but you can also see Grinch in the park for free. Just wondering if the experience of the character breakfast is worth the price for the breakfast and time lost during the morning hours... I tried many times to open the info on Universal website, but it goes to mobile site and I can't open the full site... Which all the links doesn't work for me see any details of it...

I'm having trouble with it too. The link works, but when you go to purchase, it won't let you select a date or add it to your cart. Also, there are very few details here. Is it a buffet? What ages are considered children? Is my 13-year-old a child? What about my two-year-old or my 5-month-old. Do they need tickets at all?

Save your money. We went over Xmas and there were only 2-3 families there total. The characters looked hungover and the food was mediocre at best.

I think they use the same ages as the theme park admission so under nine is considered a child...but if they are under three, there would be no charge since they didn't pay for a park ticket. So...your 13 yo would be an adult, the two yo would be a child and the mfive month would not have to pay.

I'm fairly certain it's a buffet but it doesn't include a drink so you'd have to pay for that separately. From what I've heard others say about the buffet, it's nothing special but the interaction between the children and the characters is wonderful....nothing special with the food.

I had the same problem and had to make reservations from on office desk top. I could not access it from my Galaxy Tab or cell phone.

I booked our tickets over the phone - a rather arduous process (& pricey when calling internationally). The reason it takes so long is that you have to buy the tickets, and then you have to make an actual reservation for the time you want. Total process took a bit over 15 minutes. The actual tickets have a reservation time of 8am printed on them (it's the default time), but our actual reservation is for later in the morning - gives us time to do the early entry to WWOHP and see/do what we want, then go have breakfast.

Loving the DISBoards App on my iPhone :-D

We won't be getting our AP until arrival and we prepaid the breakfast. I wonder if we can get a credit or refund of the AP discount amount?
