Late breakfast at Crystal Palace

If we choose a late breakfast, say at 10:15, at what point do they stop putting out breakfast food on the buffet to prepare for lunch? I want to choose the latest breakfast possible but don't want to feel rushed or have them run out of certain items because it's late.

Hi
We always go at the 10:15 to 10:20 time to eat. We usually do this on an early entry day, so after we're in the park for about 2 hours, we're ready to eat. They don't rush you, and there is plenty to on the buffet. They keep filling it. I never remember them running out of food. It was always good and I think they started putting out the lunch items as we were leaving. Have fun!!

Hi, I totally agree We always get a late ADR 10 am or later if possible. The food is always plentiful and delicious!! They do close one side of the breakfast buffet as it gets closer to lunchtime but it is a duplicate side so you still have your pick of all breakfast items. IMHO Crystal Palace Breakfast is THE BEST !! We leave STUFFED and usually do not eat again until dinner. (well maybe a Mickey bar snack ) Joan

Following up to say that we've never found the Disney restaurants to stop or give up on freshening the buffet because it's close to a meal switchover time. As someone else has said, they may close one identical area because there are fewer people, but they still offer everything. I think that they are very aware that with the cost and expectations, that they'd have guests clamoring for refunds if the food wasn't fresh/plentiful/available as advertised.
