Believe it or not, the best place to dine with Minnie Mouse isn’t inside the parks or even a Disney-operated hotel — it’s at the Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort. Not only will you encounter some of Disney’s best characters without having to pop for theme park admission, but you’ll devour some of the greatest breakfast options available throughout Walt Disney World.

The next time you’re craving a truly indulgent breakfast beyond standard Disney fare, Four Seasons Resort Orlando, a AAA Five Diamond Resort, delivers. Their Good Morning Breakfast with Goofy & His Pals pairs an upscale meal with meet-and-greets from Goofy, Mickey Mouse, and Minnie Mouse for a spectacular vacation addition that’s open to the public and worthy of the trip.

In lieu of a buffet packed with standard fare, Four Seasons Resort Orlando’s Ravello restaurant provides delicacies like housemade charcuterie, customizable pancakes, and decadent pastries like stuffed Nutella donuts. There’s even made-to-order waffles, omelettes, and eggs done however you’d like, as well as healthy options like fresh fruit, yogurt, granola, and muesli. With juice, coffee and enough sweets to rival the Main Street Confectionary, it’s all included within the flat-rate price of $48 per adult and $28 for children 12 and under, with the additional option of bottomless Bloody Marys or mimosas for just $15.

It helps, too, that the food is almost as fantastic as the atmosphere. With awe-inspiring landscaping, gorgeous interiors, and upscale boutiques offering Disney gear not offered elsewhere, the stunning hotel makes for a delightful day visit — and a worthy choice for your next Disney vacation. Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort offers perks including 60-day FastPass+ booking windows, Extra Magic Hours, and park transportation, as well as an on-site planning center with Disney cast members available to provide assistance and answer any questions.

Four Seasons Resort Orlando’s character breakfast is offered from 7:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Thursdays, Saturdays, and select Tuesdays; reservations are required. Though it’s close to Magic Kingdom and on Disney property, there is not Walt Disney World transportation to the hotel, so a car, Lyft, Uber, or taxi is the best way to arrive to this discerning thrice-weekly meal.
