The Hilton Orlando lake Buena Vista and the Wyndham Lake Buena Vista both have character breakfasts certain days of the week, I believe.

We have done the one at Hilton DTD and have been very pleased with the price and character time. Minnie, Pluto there each time and others varied. Get there at 750 to be he first to sit! Don't tell everyone though it seems to be off the beaten path from All the craziness! Good luck!

Only hotels on Disney property are allowed to have Disney character breakfasts. There are non-Disney-owned hotels on Disney property that offer character breakfasts, if that's what you're looking for:
  • Buena Vista Palace (near Downtown Disney, at Watercress Cafe, Sundays only)
  • Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista (near Downtown Disney, at Covington Mill, Sundays only)
  • Wyndham Lake Buena Vista (near Downtown Disney, at Lakeview Restaurant, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays)
  • WDW Swan Hotel (near Disney's BoardWalk, at Garden Grove restaurant, Saturdays and Sundays)

Another option you may want to consider is the "Shrek Feast" character breakfast at Gaylord Palms (Shrek, Fiona and Puss n Boots are the characters appearing). Food is awesome and the hotel is gorgeous (the atrium is worth a tour on its own). Price is $29.99 pp with a 10% discount to hotel guests. Characters spent a ton of time at our table and came around more than once.

Buffet is HUGE.........best breakfast buffet I've ever seen.

You can check out my trip report (see the link in my signature) for our experience there in December. The Shrek Feast begins at page 8, post 120.

Anyone ever been to any of these breakfasts, and what did you think? Any idea of the cost, and which characters appear at each?

Another option that you may or may not have already thought of is the Disney hotels that have Breakfast but don't require a park admission or staying at the hotel. An example would be Ohanna's in the Poly resort. It has a breakfast with the characters. You can just drive there. They don't charge for the parking but you'll have to have a reservation.

You can park free @ DTD to get to the Hilton. It is right across the street. We dropped off a rental car @ the avis inside the Hilton. It was a very easy walk.

So, I did some calling around about the character breakfasts and here's some info that I found out. Thought I'd share in case anyone else is interested .

Buena Vista Palace
Sundays only, 8 am to 11 am
$24.99 per adult (sorry, did not get the kids price)
Parking price is unknown

Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista
Sundays only
$22.50 for adults, $9 for kids, $13 to park

Wyndham Lake Buena Vista
Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday
$24.99 for adults, $12.95 for kids, complimentary self parking

WDW Swan
Saturday and Sunday, 8 am - 11 am
$23.99 for adults (again, missed the kids price on this one....sorry!)
AAA members get discount, but they will not allow CAA (Canadian) members to claim the discount with their card (yes, I asked......they even checked with 2 managers)
Parking is $15

Prices above are without tax as far as I know. All info given to me over the phone by various reps at each individual property.
