    I need some expert opinions! We're staying at Beach Club for the first time & plan to eat at Cape May. The kids aren't really as in to characters as they used to be - the character experience at breakfast is not important. Is breakfast or dinner a better meal?
    thanks,

    Dinner is a clam bake with a variety of seafood. We ate Dinner at Cape May for the first time in December and it was absolutely wonderful. We have done the breakfast also and the character experience is fun but if thats not a big deal then I would go with Dinner.

    Cape May is one of the better character breakfasts - really fresh food. I did not like the dinner buffet - the crab legs were watery.

    Both are great and both are must do's for us every trip, but if we had to choose between them, we would go with dinner.

    We mainly go for breakfast but we have had dinner there too. I think you can't go wrong no matter what you decide. Both the breakfast and dinner buffets are really good. This restaurant is such a hidden gem :goodvibes.

    The breakfast is quite good. But it's pretty much the same buffet breakfast food found at any of the other buffets on property.

    Dinner is something different altogether. The food is delish! Great crab legs, pasta dishes, fresh salads, etc. I personally find that the better experience is in the evening at the clam bake.
