Disney officially announced a “test” of breakfast at Be Our Guest Restaurant today: http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2015/03/new-breakfast-starts-march-20-at-be-our-guest-restaurant-in-the-magic-kingdom-at-walt-disney-world-resort/. Reservations open March 17th with breakfast being served for the first time on March 20th. The rest runs daily from 8am-10am through June 18th.
It will be interesting to see if people eating early get an advantage in moving to either Princess Fairytale Hall or Seven Dwarfs Mine Train before anyone from the main entrance has a chance to get back there. Both attractions are much closer to Be Our Guest in New Fantasyland than they are to the front of the Park. The prix fixe aspect is interesting as well – breakfast is expected to cost $19.99 per adult and $11.99 per child, which is significantly more expensive than any quick service breakfast, most table service breakfasts, and most breakfast buffets without characters (The Wave and Captain’s Grille, for example). Breakfast is expected to include beverages and a pastry basket. On the other hand, 20 bucks per adult is significantly less expensive than character breakfasts at Crystal Palace ($26.99/adult $14.99/child) or Cinderella’s Royal Table ($~55/adults $~33/kids). Breakfast was originally going to be an a la carte affair, but doing things like this will maximize revenue and guarantee people aren’t just hanging out inside the quick service for 30 minutes without ordering anything before hauling it over to Mine Train at 8:45am.
The website will hopefully secure a reservation and grab breakfast there early next week, after they get a chance to work out the initial wrinkles. The blogs tend to visit on the first day and come away with problems that are never seen again. We should have a better idea about what to expect next Tuesday or Wednesday. As far as whether you should try to secure a Be Our Guest breakfast for a date sometime in the future…my recommendation would be to book it tomorrow if you think there’s a chance you’ll do it. If it sucks, you can easily cancel it online, via the app, or by phone.
