Thanks for the great reviews. I especially enjoyed your review of Cape May. Cape May is, and has always been, a favorite of my wife's and mine. Thanks again.

Great reviews. I may have to get the lobster in August, after seeing your pictures.

Crystal Palace, breakfast, Fri 05.02.08

After an early morning romp through the MK, I arrived at Crystal Palace at around 10:15am for my 10:20am ADR. I was seated almost right away, and was greeted to a nice little celebration on my table.


After the waiter took my order for coffee, I was told to make my way through the buffet, because the characters wouldn't be around for a while. I was on a mission for puffed french toast! I'd heard it was great, and I also knew to look for it at the kids' area, thanks to the DIS!

Here's my first plate


Puffed french toast and fruit. Good stuff! That puffed french toast was yummy as expected.

Then I made another trip up


Mickey waffle, breakfast lasagna, and potatoes. Mickey waffle, good as usual, breakfast lasagna was delish! Potatoes were just okay. Just had a bite. But that breakfast lasagna, yum! Bready, fruity, pudding-y goodness!

Next, I had a custom-made egg white omelet made, with veggies.


I was very excited that they had the option of just egg whites, as that's how I prefer my omelets. It was okay. Only had a couple of bites.

One more plate to come! Just had to try some more of the puffed french toast and breakfast lasagna!


Also grabbed a pancake, but it was dry. Oh well, the other stuff made up for it!

Then came the parade of characters. First came Piglet


Tigger and I danced a bit


Then he sat down and celebrated when my waiter brought by a cupcake


cupcake close up


Next to come was Eeyore!


Then I got a hug


At some point, Pooh had ignored me, guess he thought I wasn't interested because I was alone. Or he just didn't notice me sitting there. Let's go with the second one . So when my server asked if I'd seen all the characters, I told him Pooh had missed me, so Pooh's handler came over and took me over to where Pooh was so I could get a picture


Kinda funny, and having nothing to do with the breakfast, but I'm looking at a picture of me and my two brothers with Pooh when I was about 8-9 years old, and Pooh has changed! He used to have a hunny pot on his head! And he had a big huge head! Among other things. I guess he's just matured over the years

So that was breakfast with Pooh and the gang. Nothing too exciting. But it was a good breakfast, and I got to meet some characters and get pics, which is always nice. Most definitely will be back, have an ADR scheduled for August when I go with the fam.

next up: early dinner @ the Plaza

Finally, an update it's been forever. I don't have time to read it now though, I have to be at work in twenty minutes. But great pics, and I promise I'll read it tomorrow.

My God Marcia - had I know what kind of a food frenzy you were on I would have made you sit & tell us all about it at the DIS Meet!!!

What is in the breakfast lasagna - is it an entree or dessert? In one pic it looked like there was corn in it, in another blueberries?!?!

I was going to ask the same thing! When I hear lasagna, I think CHEESE! Doesn't look like there was any. And, did I see a banana in there?

We had breakfast there last trip and really enjoyed it. Isn't that breakfast lasagna amazing? I found a recipe for it and it has like waffles, pound cake, pancakes all broken up with a custardy pudding and fruit, really yummy! So healthy too! LOL!

Who took all your pics? Did the handler? I am going solo and wondered about that. It is nice that someone took them for you!

Great reviews!!!!

Quick question for you I love Crystal Palace but I've never been there for breakfast I was wondering do they have a custom omelet station or were you able to special order yours because you wanted egg whites?

thanks!!

Marsh - Great review.

Not the OP, but I can answer the question about the breakfast lasagna. It's def. more dessert then entree. It's made with fruit, pastry cream, pancakes, and waffles. It is very rich.
