Cape May Cafe at Beach Club Resort
April 2018 Update: Look who’s now appearing at the Cape May breakfast buffet…it’s Daisy Duck!
Looking good Daisy!
Minnie’s Beach Bash Breakfast
Over at Disney’s Beach Club Resort, Minnie’s Beach Bash Breakfast at Cape May Café is welcoming a new friend! Daisy Duck has now joined Minnie and her friends for this fun character dining experience.
Indulge in a delicious New England-style beachside buffet which includes a full breakfast complete with Mickey waffles, scrambled eggs, seasoned potatoes, pastries, and much much more.
Cape May Cafe is not as well-known as the other Disney character breakfast buffets at WDW, so it’s much 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 breakfast reservation was for 9am, so we could have breakfast and then head over to Epcot for the day.
We liked the atmosphere at the Cape May Cafe a lot. The pastel colors and décor are very “seashore at the turn-of-the-20th-century”.
It makes it seem fun and carefree, perfect for a relaxed breakfast buffet.

The pretty carpet matches the umbrella decor.
Our buffet awaits. Notice the umbrellas in the tiles.
Mickey Waffles with warm syrup. YUM!
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! 🙂 That was Elly’s great idea!

Goofy in his swimsuit and life vest.
Donald Duck. He’s a hard character to find at meet & greets.
There are three Disney characters that visit with guests at their tables: Minnie, Donald, and Goofy, all in their bathing suits/beach attire!
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 wishes Mickey had been there in his swim suit costume – she’s still collecting photos with him in all his costumes!)
The characters were wearing the same beach costumes that they wear at Castaway Cay in the Bahamas!
The umbrellas at the Beach Club are the same as the umbrellas at Castaway Cay beach! Those are our chairs that we sat in during the Disney Dream cruise.
It was a wonderful breakfast with good friends, then we were off to see what’s new at Norway in Epcot’s World Showcase. 🙂

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale
by Elly Collins & Caroline Collins
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.
