    We have a b'fast adr at Cape May this trip. I am dissappointed after your review. We are staying at BC though and it is on our last day right before we leave to go home. We usually eat at Boma our last day (chef mickey's last year for a change) but thought it would just be easier since Cape May is right downstairs.

    Tutto looks good. May have to try it. (think it is too late to get adr for this trip)

    Glad you guys likes SciFi and Tutto! We're trying SciFi for the first time and Tutto is one of our standard meals. We're from the NY area too and Tutto hasn't ever disappointed. Not AMAZING but by far the best Italian we've found on property

    I think that that plate of food looks like it would feed 2 people. seriously the serving spoon is as big as the eggs. I can't believe that they brought that out to you- or actually, you know, I can because the last time that we went we took the kids to breakfast at the castle and they brought us a plate EXACTLY the same size for all 6 of us. I remember asking our server if that was a joke. I mean really. Your plate had 4 sausages on it. You had 5 people at you table. One person is gonna be a Sad Sally until the server comes back and Lord help ya if you have a slow one. Yepper we don't do the Princess Breakfasts anymore. They are just too skimpy. We had Wendy, the Fairy Godmother as well as Mary Poppins. My children were the same age as your girls and they were confused as to why they were at a "Princess Breakfast" The only other Princesses that had made it the day we went were Cinderella and Snow White. Only 2 outta 5 were actual "Princesses" at our breakfast- I think that you had a better "Princess" day LOL!

    Ok, found your report today, but I can't see your pictures. It has a picture of photobucket and says upgrade to pro, bandwidth exceeded. What do I need to do to fix so I can see pics? Hope I don't sound like to much of a dunce , but I figure someone out there in computer land could help me out.:thumbsup2

    It's not you, it's the OP. He has too many pictures stored on photobucket for the free account.

    Thanks. We're happy to have you.

    If it's right downstairs, I'm sure it will be fine (not great, but fine). We took a bus and a boat to get there.

    Agreed.

    We are. Thanks.
    :rotfl2:

    She asked me to tell you that it is was a light frappucino and only 4 ww points.

    Totally.

    Thanks.

    It's not you, it's me. We should be back up now.

    Actually, it's too many views, not too many pics, but we should be back up.

    Give it another shot.

    A little back-story here. We did not have a breakfast planned for 8/19 90+10 some odd days ago, and had decided on trying the Tusker House lunch with the Nemo tix. Then DW started to get a yearning for some puffed French toast. So we decided to add on DW’s favorite breakfast as a “last minute” add. With the new online ADR system, it’s easy to keep checking and eventually got our 8:15 ADR for CP. Then just a few days ago, we came to our senses and decided to cancel Tusker, as there was just no way we’d want to run from MK to AK just for lunch.

    A little background on CP. It’s located just off of Main Street on the left hand side as you approach the path to Adventureland. IMHO, it is the busiest, most hustlely-bustley TS place in the MK. It features Pooh, Tigger, Piglet and Eyore and is delicious. It is a very large all you can eat buffet, with many, many choices. Standouts include the puffed French toast, the breakfast lasagna, and of course the omelet/pancake station featuring chocolate chip Mickey pancakes.

    Here’s a sample of the offerings:

    And the characters:

    Overall, this is an excellent character breakfast and a lot of fun. While the characters are not my favorite, this is one where the food and location is worth the money.

    I gave CP 4.5 stars
    DW gave CP 4.5 stars
    Mrs. Potts gave 4.5 stars
    Wow! That’s 13.5/15.

    Frozen carbonated beverages, cream cheese pretzle and some non-frozen carbonated beverages.

    Purple tink lollipop - Mrs. Potts paid OOP not a snack credit since its 9 servings, so brink 8 friends if you plan to eat one of these.

    Narcoosee’s is a signature restaurant located right on Bay Lake at the Grand Floridian Resort. It is just a short boat ride from MK – I do recommend you take the boat and not the monorail, as Narcoosee’s is just a few steps from the boat dock. While Narcoosee’s is a 2TS meal and features upscale, creative food, it is not stuffy at all. The waitstaff wears blue button-down shirts with white aprons and all are very patient with patrons of all ages.

    Our server was Zahira from Fez, Morocco and she was pretty good, though not the best. However, the service was adequate and the food more than made up for any deficiencies in the service. Here’s what we ate:
    Bread and butter with Hawaiian Sea Salt – nothing special here, just okay, so don’t fill up on bread.

    Apps
    I had the calamari (again). This was very flavorful and I enjoyed it a lot. My one complaint would be that the olives made the dish a bit salty.
    [​IMG]

    DW had the tomatoes and mozzarella – this was very nice as well. And beautiful, too.
    [​IMG]

    Mrs. Potts ordered the cheese plate and we all sampled.

    Aurora had the kid’s Caesar salad – her fave.

    Fruit for Ariel.

    Mrs. Potts had the Chef’s Recommendation which was flounder
    [​IMG]

    I had the Togarashi Spiced Ahi Tuna with sticky rice, wasabi tobiko, wakame, soy glaze, and vegetable rolls. This was fantastic.
    [​IMG]

    Desserts were good too.
    Kid’s s’mores
    [​IMG]

    Gellato sampler

    Strawberry Shortcake
    [​IMG]

    Warm Valrhona Chocolate Cake - with blood orange sauce. DW requested this without the orange sauce, but it turns out the chocolate sauce its pretty orangey too, so she sent it back and got the cheesecake.

    Almond-crusted Cheesecake

    Fresh-pressed coffee
    [​IMG]

    DW and I each gave Narcoosee’s 4.5 stars and Mrs. Potts gave it 4.75 and said it was the best food thus far. For those of you keeping track at home, that’s 13.75/15 and our highest score yet. If you’re on the fence, I recommend you give Narcoosee’s a try.

    Cost without DxDDP $262.14

    Actually, no. It is a bit like a donut, but without any fillings.

    Thanks.

    OMG, the breakfast at CP looks FANTASTIC!!! YUM!! We never do breakfast with the kiddos at a sit-down but that almost makes me want to change my mind.... Narcosee's calamari however, did not look so very appetizing. I might have sent that back. Your daughter's food looked great! I can't believe that is on the CURRENT Disney kid's menu!
