There are few better ways to start your Disneyland experience then to join Minnie and her friends for breakfast at Plaza Inn Restaurant at Disneyland. Much like I suggest Blue Bayou for dinner, I absolutely encourage you to spend a morning with some of your favorite characters. Plaza Inn is just the place to find them!!
This is another restaurant you will need to make a priority seating (reservation) appointment as soon as you know you’re going. Minnie is ever so popular and we’d hate for you to miss out on seeing her and perhaps her closest friend Mickey.
Along with Minnie are many characters you won’t usually find in Disneyland. I’ve seen Captain Hook, Chip and Dale, Winnie the Pooh, Eeyore, and more. These friends of Minnie’s aren’t usually hanging around the park anywhere else, so here’s your chance to see them and hang out with them for a bit too.
Like most character breakfasts, Plaza Inn offers a buffet with your choice of different breakfast items, from cold cereal to hot Mickey waffles, Omelette station, pastries and much more. They even have a dessert station, even at breakfast, so stop by there too!
I tend to schedule my Minnie and Friends breakfast near the later side of the serving times. This way I get more of a brunch and can save a bit of money by combining breakfast and lunch. It sometimes works, sometimes not. But we try regardless to save money were we can. Those souvenirs don’t come free you know. Find your savings where you can, probably why you’re checking out this great site as well!
Included with your meal is a Photo opportunity. They take your picture prior to being seated and without any characters. Just the sign announcing the restaurant I tend to skip purchasing this picture. I see no reason to have a picture with a sign that I have to pay for, but I do get lots of ones inside with all of our Disney friends.
Most days the weather is nice enough to eat out on the patio. Sit under one of the umbrella’s and enjoy the sun on your back while you eat and spend time visiting with a multitude of characters.
Make sure you have your autograph book out and ready to go. Everyone of the visitors to your table will hang out a bit, sign your book and take pictures with you. We tend to get a few pictures with each. A couple of my son only, then maybe one or two more with all of us. Sometimes these become great Christmas Card pictures. Oh, there are no Photo Pass Photographers inside the restaurant so get your camera out and ready as well.
