I’ve had breakfast in the Castle once and the atmosphere/fact I was in the castle was great, the food not so much! I’m not a big fan of american bacon/sausage/scrambled eggs and that’s pretty much all I got on my plate so it was a bit of a let down. The servers looked really rushed that morning and there was lot’s of running about. Character interaction was good, it was nice getting pictures with the Princess’ but really we could have got the same Princess’ outside of the castle at various meet and greets.
We did do an evening buffet at 1900 Park Fare that same trip and you did get to meet Cinderella and Prince Charming there too. 1900 felt more relaxed and you definatly got a lot more character interaction (and it was pretty packed out in there that night).
The novelty of eating in the Castle is a must-do-at-least-once I’d say but I’m not sold on it’s overall value.
