That Offsite Character Dining Question

Just listened to the podcast the other day and was thinking about the non-disney property character breakfasts someone asked about. This is what I've found out, cut & pasted from my own trip report for your viewing pleasure. Please add any more info you know!

Ok, so I just called the Hilton @ Disney World (407-827-2727) and was transferred to the Covington Mill. The times for Sunday's Character Breakfast are 8:30-11am. There are 4 characters currently, Minnie, Pluto, Wendy, and Fox! No reservations required. Buffet. Adults $19.50 and Children are $9.00.

We're SO THERE on the non-park day!!! Def. some savings in cost over Disney property character breakfasts, and as these are authorized by DIsney, I feel very good about this.

We will also be visiting Gatorland on the same day, and finishing the day at Arabian Nights dinner show. Found fantastic ways to save money on tickets to both attractions. For details, feel free to PM me.

I'm getting so excited! 30 more sleeps!!


Also, in case anyone else is interested, the offsite character breakfast at Buena Vista Palace's Watercress Cafe' is a brunch on Sundays from 7am-11:30am. The characters are there from 8am-11am. The cost is $24/ad, $13/ch. Buffet. No reservations req'd. 407-827-2727.

Other options are:

Garden Grove at Swan Dolphin 8-11 on Sat & Sun $18.99/ad; $11.99/ch
Baskersville at Regal Sun T, Th, Sat. 8:30-10:30. Don't know price.
The above are each buffets. Two characters each. Usually Goofy & Pluto.

Anyone have any updated info on this?

We are thinking about doing Buena Vista hotel the night before our free dining package. They have an offer right now with free breakfast (but not offered for our dates yet, we are going in Jan) and just wanted to see what our options are for a character meal. We will be doing QS so any table service is OP and I would obviously want to pay less

I haven't heard anything as of recently, but you could always try calling the number in the first post to double-check.

Kinda bumping this to see if this info is still current. Are there still a couple options for non-Disney site yet Disney-authorized character dining?
