Crystal Palace Breakfast

It was then time to check in for my breakfast ADR at…

This sign outside is the closest thing they have to a menu…

Before my December 2013 trip, I had not been to Crystal Palace since my kids were little, I would say circa 2000 – 2001. Some of the DIS ladies I was traveling with in Dec. 2013 wanted to have breakfast at Crystal Palace, so I decided to tag along. I was surprised by how good the buffet food was, especially the made-to-order omelets. Though I wasn’t able to fit it into my next trip in April 2014, with this one being a longer trip I knew I for sure wanted to have breakfast here again. When I was able to get a pre-park opening ADR, that was icing on the cake.

But let’s get to it now, what you are all here to see…THE FOOD!!! :thumbsup2

Oh, and I almost forgot, my #1 favorite thing about having breakfast at Crystal Palace…Made-to-Order Omelets!! Here is mine in the making…

[IMG]

I believe this had ham, sausage, bacon, green pepper, tomatoes, mushrooms, and cheddar cheese (which was nearly all of the ingredients which were offered).

So here were my three plates of food…

[IMG]

Plate #1 was the “Good” one, because everything was good but nothing really stood out as being particularly great.

[IMG]

Plate #2 was my Kid’s plate. I really enjoyed both of these, so I guess I’m just a “kid at heart”. ;)

[IMG]

But Plate #3 with my Made-to-Order Omelet was my favorite…

[IMG]

And since a character breakfast review does not seem complete without it, here is a pic with one of my favorite Disney characters…

I really enjoyed this meal and would gladly return here on my next trip. However, on my next trip I will have my kids along (ages 19 – 25) and none of them really eat breakfast, especially not a big buffet breakfast. Plus they rolled their eyes when I told them that this is a character breakfast with Pooh & friends. So having breakfast here in May is definitely a long shot. But I will be back again…someday. :thumbsup2
