Loving your report so far - I'm doing my first solo trip, leaving Wednesday. I'm not on the dining plan though. Just curious how it was eating solo in all the restaurants, mainly the table service? I tend to have a complex about eating alone, but I can't starve myself for 4 days, right?

Can't wait to read the rest of your reviews - great pics too!

Subscribing.

And you're inspiring me, Marcia. I'm going to WDW with my daughter June 22-27th; my birthday is July 18th. Do you think I should acknowledge my birthday while I'm there? Did you have a problem celebrating early?

totally do it! nobody made a big deal, even when i got carded a few times (ouch!), they didn't say a word.

whenever anybody asked me if it was the actual day or if it was coming, i said it was coming. worked for me! definitely go for it.

and i'm sitting at my grandmother's house right now, "borrowing" internet from someone (wifi, yay!), and really bored right now. so i think i might have some time to add in another review now.

Thanks for the quick reply! What the heck - I think I'll go for it! Don't think I'll ever be there on my actual birthday so what do I have to lose?

Ok - so I have a stupid question. I've already made my ADRs; should I call Disney Dining and tell them we are celebrating a birthday or should I just wait until I check in at each restaurant?

BTW - I'm originally from Hudson County, NJ - Bayonne to be exact. Not happy stuck in Mass. right now!

Cape May Cafe, breakfast, Thurs 05.01.08

I don't have my notes with me (remember, at grandmother's for Mother's Day...Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers, btw!!!), but I think I should be okay for this one. I've got lots of pics.

Pretty sure I had a 10:40am ADR for this one, so I did my rope drop Epcot stuff, grabbed some FPs, and walked back through the International Gateway to make my way over to the Beach Club. Now, this is a breakfast I have done before, and knew it had a great spread, and wonderful characters. So I was really looking forward to it.

When I arrived at 10:30, they couldn't find me in the system. Good thing I carried my ADR #'s around with me. Seems as though the CM had scheduled me for a few days later. So the wonderful CM at the podium told me it would be no problem, and I was seated about 10 minutes later.

I took *tons* of pictures here. And well, I plan to include them all, even the character pics, since it's about the experience here.

Anyway, I was seated at a 2-top, and my server came by right away to take my order. Coffee. Please. Yes, icky WDW coffee. I'd already had 2 mug-fuls from Pop in the morning. I need the caffeine, I'll admit it. I drink the sludge.

Then I was left to the buffet. Here's the view from my table:


Goofy and Dale actually came by quickly before I even had a chance to get any food



now, on to the good stuff


Let's see, top right hand corner is some yogurt with granola. Then we have scrambled eggs, some sort of cheese blintz, mickey waffle!, pineapple, grapes, and syrup in the middle. Only had a few bites of each, had to save room for other goodies!


Here we have the DELICIOUS bread pudding, and some strawberries. This stuff was so good. So so good!


Mickey Waffle (yes, I did finish those!), sausage, more scrambled eggs, potatoes, some pastry, and a piece of b'fast pizza. Now, I have no idea why I took the sausage, because I don't like sausage. Who knows! I was in Disney, must have been a little craziness taking over my brain. The eggs were really good, you know they make great scrambled eggs at WDW. The pastry was dry, so I only had a small bite, and I wasn't a fan of the pizza. I think it had crumbles of some sort of meat on it, so that wasn't for me.

Next, Chip came by for a visit


Then I went around and took pics around the whole buffet
fruit


more fruit and bagels


toppings for the bagels, cottage cheese, and stuff


oatmeal and grits i think?


hot foods


more hot foods


pastries


the AWESOME bread pudding (pic doesn't do it justice!) and muffins


mickey waffles!


Now that the food parade is over, take a look at the gorgeous Minnie



Overall, I love this breakfast. It's got a great spread of food, awesome characters/interaction, and it's just plain fun. I love the fruit bar, and the yogurt bar. Such good stuff. I will most definitely be back!

next up: Akershus, lunch w/the Princesses!

not a stupid question at all! i went ahead and called and added it on at my ADRs, but while i was there, i changed some ressies around, so some just noticed my pin when i checked in. either way works!

and that's so awesome that you're from nj too! sorry you're stuck in mass though.
