1900 Park Fare breakfast review – is it worth it?

1900 Park Fare breakfast review – is it worth it?

This long-time fave character meal was closed for several years, but has now returned with some favorite foods and a whole new combo of characters.

We recently had breakfast there. Here’s how it went.

How difficult was it to get a reservation?

Booking ahead

Although I did snag a reservation right when my 60 day window opened up, I ended up needing to get a different time.

When I went to find a new time, there were none available. Luckily, I set up some alerts in our account and several popped up so I was able to snag a new one that worked better.

Checking in

For our 9:30 a.m. reservation, we arrived at The Grand Floridian right after 9 a.m. using a Lyft ride from our resort. We were able to check in at 9:10 and sit near the restaurant entrance while we waited.

We were called to eat at 9:35 a.m.

What’s included in breakfast at 1900 Park Fare

Let’s take a look at what’s included with a 1900 Park Fare breakfast…

Breakfast at 1900 Park Fare includes:

  • Buffet
  • Meeting 4 characters
  • Autograph card

All of the characters you meet here are united in being “wishmakers.”

We met these while having breakfast:

  • Tiana in her new outfit from Tiana’s Bayou Adventure
  • Aladdin in his Prince Ali outfit
  • Mirabel in her classic dress
  • Cinderella in her blue dress

Character interactions

It’s always tricky when there’s a buffet and characters to meet because how to you know when to go and when you need to stay to meet a character?

They came around 1 at a time and we were able to meet all 4 in under an hour.

There’s also a wish making ceremony that the characters lead which is a break from meeting them, but very sweet to take part in.

The characters here do sign autographs, but they also give out an autograph card as well.

1900 Park Fare food and drinks

Since this is a buffet, you can start eating as soon as you tell your server what drinks you want. Non-alcoholic drinks are included, but specialty drinks are available for an extra cost.

Pog juice, coffee, water, and soft drinks are included with the meal.

At the buffet, you’ll find favorites like Mickey waffles, all kinds of eggs, biscuits and gravy, and the very popular strawberry soup.

Oh, and there’s also gummy bears which is the MOST fun with breakfast.

Our review of breakfast at 1900 Park Fare

We were satisfied overall with the service, food, and character interactions which were all top notch.

We also thought the cute little wish making ceremony was really adorable.

The only issues we had were the price and how loud it is in the restaurant when it’s at full capacity.

At $54/adult, this is a super expensive breakfast which was hard to stomach. If you’re on the Disney Dining Plan, this is a fantastic value of a credit though.

If you’re sensitive to sound, you might consider an off-peak meal time when the restaurant won’t be at full capacity. As we got closer to the end of our meal around 10:30 a.m., the dining space was about half full and much easier to manage – and we could finally even hear the music!

Is 1900 Park Fare worth it for breakfast?

If you see the price tag for this meal and are ok with it, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed in the food, service, or characters. It’s just getting past the sticker shock that could be an issue.

However, I definitely think it’s easy to recommend for people on the Disney Dining Plan who are drawn to the characters who meet here.
