Tusker House is great! Give it a try!
Also, does it have to be breakfast....try Akerhaus for lunch. Much better food!

We have only ever done 3 of the character breakfasts: Cape May, Tusker House,Akershus. Akershus is ok if you really want princesses, but I believe Cape May and Tusker House are both better value for equivalent (if not better) food.

I really like Tusker House, even for a later breakfast, or lunch! The food has more variety and the characters are still there. I like the meals here because they have a bit of different variety than other places!

We are in the same place! We have done DxDDP every visit since it was introduced but I don't think we will this trip so I have been trying to figure the best intersection of value, convenience and enjoyment.

I agree with the PP that one Mickey meal is enough. We love Tusker House but I am struggling with whether to book 'Ohana as well since we will be at the Poly. We will be at the BC too but Cape May is very meh to us so not booking it. I wouldn't pay OOP for Chef Mickey's personally, as the flagship character meal it is over-priced for selection and quality. My boys also voted for 1900PF and Crystal Palace.

PS: I have 2 boys so princesses aren't on our list... at least not yet.
Crystal Palace- pooh, tigger, eeyore and piglet. Classic attire.

Cape May Cafe- Minnie, Goofy, Donald all in beach wear.

Tusker House at AK- Mickey, Goofy and Daisy at the table, Donald ore photo before you eat. All in Safari gear.

Chef Mickeys- Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy and Pluto... all in chef/ kitchen wear.

Garden Grill in Epcot- Mickey, Chip and Dale in farmer wear

Play n dine at Hollywood and vine in DHS - agent Oso, Handy Manny, Leo and June classic attire

Supercalafragilistic breakfast at grand Floridian- Alice, Mad hatter,Mary Poppins, Tigger and Pooh.

These were the characters we saw in the past few visits. They can change but rarely do if at all.

There are more characters at the DL meals like Minnie's and Goofy's kitchen. But I think the food and atmospheres are highly superior in WDW compared to DL character meals. At least we felt so.

We loved 1900 park fare as well. Great breakfast, different characters. Tusker house is good too. However CP would be great to go into MK on the
4th early, if that is where you are sure you want to go there
