I've done breakfast and dinner there and I enjoyed both. We're vegan and when we told the CM that sat us the chef came out, talked to us a bit and brought out several different plates of options (not just single serve plates, HUGE plates for the whole table) for us and told us what we could eat from the buffet. They're very attentive. The characters came back 3 times during breakfast with the exception of Mary Poppins. Alice played with my 1 year old for a good few minutes while we were leaving because he wouldn't give her the time of day before. We did go in late Jan so it was pretty dead, and we did dinner in late August a few years ago and all of the characters except Cinderella came back twice.

FYI...I thought the Mad Hatter was hysterical but he scared the hell out of my kids. The CM that played him was, IMO, very spot on with his portrayal and once my kids got over their initial "oh my god this guy must be an escaped mental patient" they took pictures with him.

Had to LOL at this! My kids were fine with the Mad Hatter, but he absolutely scared the crap out of my DH when he came running in! Lunatic was what my husband said. Made it all that much funnier for the rest of us!

Had both breakfast and dinner here. For me, breakfast was quieter.....At last trip in January I was seated next to a table with little 6 yr. old girls and their mothers celebrating a BD for dinner. It was definitely chaotic; but it was all good fun!! Enjoyed seeing their interaction with the characters!!
