[QUOTE=cubsblue;1137764]We have been to Garden Grove and really enjoyed it. Food was some of the best we have had at a buffet and the characters were great. They do rotate the characters but the restaurant tends to not be real busy so the interaction time can be pretty good. Beaches and Cream is good about making a big deal over a birthday. Flashing lights and all.[/QUOTE]
Ahhh! Beaches and Cream would be perfect!
Rachel told me yesterday that while she preferred that her birthday breakfast have characters, it wasn’t a requirement. She just wants a breakfast booked because she feels it’s the perfect way to start her birthday. So after a long debate between Captain’s Grille (near our resort and menu looks awesome), and Kona Café, Grand Floridian Café, and Whispering Canyon… I went with Whispering Canyon because I felt like the atmosphere would be the best for a birthday. However, it is the restaurant that is the most difficult to get to from our resort. We’d have to take (let me know if there’s a better route!) a bus to MK, then the boat to WL.
Right now, I have the reservation booked for 8AM with a 9AM park opening, hoping that we can get to the park within the first hour of it opening. I’m wondering if I should change it to a later time and go into MK first, then leave to eat breakfast. But I’d say if we did that, there’s no way we’d be able to eat CS Be Our Guest for lunch.
