Caroline’s friend and former coworker Meaghan (who now works at Epcot) invited us to go with her and her roommate Sara (who works at Sea World) to a character breakfast at Cape May at the Beach Club Resort by Epcot.
This was something new for us to do. Cape May is not as well-known as the other character breakfast buffets at WDW, so it’s easier to get last minute reservations there. We were able to use one of our 50% off CM dining coupons, which made the breakfast very reasonable.

Our reservation was for 9am so we could have breakfast, and then head over to Epcot for the day. We liked the atmosphere at the Beach Club resort a lot. The pastel colors and décor are very “seashore at the turn-of-the-century”. It seems fun and carefree, perfect for a relaxed breakfast buffet.
The buffet was extensive and delicious! They had all kinds of breads and Danish, muffins, croissants, cinnamon rolls, cereals both hot and cold, scrambled eggs, frittata of the day, cheeses, seasoned potatoes, bacon/sausage/fish, fresh fruit, salads, and, of course, Caroline’s favorites: Mickey Waffles!
One cool thing that we did for this character breakfast was to bring our big Vinylmation for the characters to sign! 🙂
Elly’s great idea!
There are three Disney characters that visit with guests at their tables: Minnie, Donald, and Goofy, all in their bathing suits!
We missed seeing them in these costumes during our Disney Dream cruise in February, so it was fun to see them wearing them at Cape May! (Elly wished Mickey had been there in his swim suit costume – she’s still collecting photos with him in all his costumes!)
It was a wonderful breakfast with friends, then we were off to Norway at Epcot’s World Showcase. 🙂

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???
We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.
We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney. Available now at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
