I'm also going to vote for 'Ohana. The food was very tasty and I loved that it was something a little different. There was a plate of various breakfast breads on our table when we were seated. Then they brought out a platter of scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, and potatoes (excellent potatoes) as well as a plate of assorted fresh fruits. Then, they brought out their healthy platter than had turkey bacon, chicken sausage, roasted vegetables, and egg whites. Everything was delicious, we loved the parade, and we all really loved the atmosphere. Do note that you will see Mickey, Pluto, Lilo, and Stitch, so if you are looking for Minnie, Goofy, and Donald, you will need to go elsewhere.

If you want the whole Disney gang, Chef Mickey's would be the one to do as I don't believe that there is another breakfast that has Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto, and Donald. I love that Crystal Palace gets you a lovely view and picture of the castle with no other guests. And Poohs breakfast lasagna? YUM! Unfortunately, my experience at Tusker House was one of the worst dining experiences I have had at Disney. I hear I am in the minority, though. Now, as a previous poster said, if you would like to see the princesses I would highly recommend Akershus.

Tusker house!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!

Without question, Tusker House is our favorite character breakfast in all of WDW. The food is great, the atmosphere is awesome, and the character interaction is awesome as well. We met Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Daisy, and Donald (Pics out front). I only have two more words to say about it..........

We always do Crystal Palace, hit a few big rides and then have breakfast before things get going and too crowded. We've been to Chef Mickey's, Cape May and Akurshus, always head back to Crystal Palace!

Hands down, Ohana! Food served family style with no line to a buffet, great character interaction, never feel rushed, and the Poly is such a beautiful place to explore.

Another vote for tusker house, it is our favorite. Although in 2 weeks we try ohana for the first time, that seems to be very popular here also. We hated chef mickeys, crystal palace was okay, but more for the younger ones. Akershus was great for princesses but the food was awful. 1900 was okay but we prefer dinner over breakfast there. Cape may is okay but out of our way. We prefer to do a breakfast before park open so we can run to first ride and beat the crowds, makes it worth the over priced meals. That said tusker house is great and then go right on safari or everet before a line forms.

I loved Tusker House breakfast, but it is the only one I have done so far. This fall, we have Tusker House, Ohana, and 1900 all booked, but I admit, I went with the choices I did for characters vs food. But, I am excited for all three.

We've been to Chef Mickey's, Tusker House and Ohana. If you're going for the food, definitely Tusker House. If you're going for the characters, I think Chef Mickey's had the best interaction. The food was pretty standard at Chef Mickey's and Ohana but the atmosphere at the Polynesian is great. The food at Tusker House was great!! I felt like the characters were a little more rushed than at the other two breakfasts but there was a chance for kids to get up and dance with the characters. We'll definitely do Tusker House and Chef Mickey's again. If you're OK with lunch, I think Tusker House had GREAT lunch food and the characters are all there. Probably the best experience in my opinion.
