Late seating for 1900 Park Fare breakfast?

Can anyone give me their opinion of a late seating (11:05am) at 1900 Park Fare?
Did you feel that you had a rushed meal? Was the buffet kept replenished longer than 11:15am (end of breakfast according to Disney website) or did you have to get everything you wanted the first time you went to the buffet bar? Were you happy with the character interaction ie did you see all of the characters that late in the morning and did they spend as much time with you as they do in earlier seatings?

I searched many posts/threads but I am not finding this information. Thanks for all answers.

. . . sure

Did you feel that you had a rushed meal?
. . . absolutely, not

Was the buffet kept replenished longer than 11:15am (end of breakfast according to Disney website) or did you have to get everything you wanted the first time you went to the buffet bar?
. . . most items are kept available while you are eating


Were you happy with the character interaction ie did you see all of the characters that late in the morning and did they spend as much time with you as they do in earlier seatings?
. . . the handlers assure the characters get to each person
. . . however, they may not stay at tables as long as earlier in the meal
. . . CM's still have a work schedule to keep

I've done several "late seatings" at character meals now. If anything, the characters seem to be a little more playful, as there are fewer tables to pay attention to. That doesn't always happen, but it seems to more often than not.

Thanks for the answers, now I have to decide to take the later time or keep my ADR an hour earlier.

I had a bitterswwet experience at Chef Mickey once for a late breakfast. We got there like at 11:15 am and got our food. Being so late the restaurant was kind of empty so we got GREAT character interaction, they were coming in groups and my son was overjoyed (me too ) We were having such a great time than when I went to get my second plate there was no more food!!! The CM were cleaning up the buffet area and all the food trays were removed. That part got to me so I wont be scheduling any more late breakfast, I left hungry
