We ate at CRT for breakfast in 2011. I have heard that they changed the menu recently.

With that said, I would pay out of pocket and not use dining credits. That would be a pricey use of credits.

Breakfast is great at CRT, pricey, but great. The food is fresh and there is plenty of it. I asked for another side of bacon and I think they gave me a pound of bacon.

But with that said, I would skip it. You are paying for the experience. And if you have experienced it already, then choose another place for breakfast.

I personally thought the breakfast was good. Of course, I will only eat the eggs/bacon/sausage, but we've never had a bad meal here. However, my DH loves the DxDP so we can "afford" it a little easier on the dining plan. If DH had to pay OOP, he might decide that he doesn't care for CRT.

We recently spent one day at MK before our cruise and my DH decided he does not like paying OOP for meals.

I have read RAVE reviews since the new menu went into effect this summer. We are giving it a try.

The price does include BOTH picture and tip. For us, remembering that, plus seeing the new menu, put it into our must-do category for our trip in a couple of weeks. I can report back if you want. We plan to dine there for breakfast mid-August, if that helps.

p.s. I have noticed that All Ears is woefully behind on their menues and resort information lately. I have been noticing that for the last 6 months or so. Hope they get back on track soon!

Thanks for the info about recent reviews! We've been there many times for lunch and dinner but we were not terribly impressed with the food. Our oldest is out of her princess phase but still has strong sentimental feelings for the princesses. I can't decide if we should go or not. I can't even decide if we should do the dining plan. Usually I plan a trip for a full 12 months in advance, but I only got the green light for this trip in June, so I am so behind on planning, and I just can't make up my mind about anything!

VP

p.s. Bummer about allears! They've always been my go-to place for menus!

Hopefully, this new menu brings people around. I think this is such a special place and it deserves a better menu and reputation. I personally love eating here. There's just something about being in the castle, some place I always dreamed about being able to see the inside of.

We just tried it in June 2012 and it was a wonderful experience. Very worth it. All the food was very good. I had the quiche and loved it.

I just went with my daughter for a "once in a lifetime," we like it enough that next time we want to take the whole family.

I don't suppose it's still all you can eat with the new menu?

I don't know if it's "all you can eat." But with the breads/pastries/fruit plus the plated-meal, there's more than enough to eat for the average person.

Thanks! We have this scheduled for DH's birthday as he's never eaten in the castle. While the new menu looks great, I just can't justify the over $50 per person price tag knowing he can't get a second helpings--he's one of those disgusting skinny people that can eat half his body weight and still lose pounds at WDW! Looks like we may be better off going back to CP.

I ate there last spring with the old menu and this spring with the new menu. I was not a huge fan last year -- I didn't think it was enough food or special enough too justify the price. We didn't plan to go back this year, but it was my daughter's one big request. The new menu was so much better. I had the lobster and crab crepes and they were delicious. The price is still insanely high for breakfast in my mind, but the value is much better.

Ok, this is a silly question, but I'm guessing you order a particular "plate" and that's "all you care to eat." If there are three adults, can we all order a different one, and share, so we can try it all? And get refills of the favorites if needed?
