Mother's Day Brunch...worth it?


#1

Hi Guys…We have PS at the Princess’ Mother’s Day Brunch in the DLR. Has anyone been to this before? I was just asking because I made the PS and then asked the price…$55.00 adults and $13.50 for kids…YIKES…and with our party being 13…that comes out to almost $550.00 with tax and tip… As a mother…I’m thinking less on the food more on my present :redface: (oops did I say that out loud?):whistling: …please let me know what you all think…If it’s worth it then I have NO problem spending the money…but if we’re going to get the EXACT same thing at say GF or AG then why spend the $20+ more??? :ohmy: Just cause it’s marked “MOTHER’S DAY BRUNCH”? :confused:

…Maybe it’s just me trying to be overly frugal!?..

I assume this is the same thing that’s going on every morning at the Plaza Inn…we did this just last week. It wasn’t Mother’s Day though.

I can imagine that PS’s to this on Mother’s Day will be a very hot commodity. That adult price is definitely more than usual though… I think it was $21 for adults when we were there? I’m not positive as I get a CM “B” discount, but my total bill was I think $28 for myself and my daughter.

I have pictures of our visit in the Trip Report forum, with my post titled “Another Mini Trip Report.” The Plaza Inn is very beautiful and the buffet was gorgeous - very top notch, but even for that $55 is pricey.

Will you be there the day before or the day after? If so, I might go then and cut your bill in half, and eat somewhere that isn’t inflating their prices for Mother’s Day. If you want a character breakfast, try Ariel’s Grotto, Storyteller’s Cafe, Minnie’s breakfast (I think at Paradise Pier, I forget the name), or Goofy’s Kitchen. I wouldn’t be surprised if Goofy’s Kitchen is raising their prices that day too. If you can live without a character breakfast that day, that multiplies your choices even more. I wonder if the Napa Rose is doing a Mother’s Day brunch?

I was thinking the same thing…$55.00 a bit over the top…Thanks for your advice Disneywife… I appreciate your input. We will be at Disneyland 05/05/05-05/11/05. So we have more than enough time to get to a charater dining, but we’re trying to figure out something to do for ‘Mother’s Day’ Since there will 3 of us Mom’s on this trip

We thought it was a bit much, and also that the Heroes theme would fit better for Father’s Day…


#5

What heroes theme is that? It’s a princess breakfast… :confused:


#6

Hero’s theme??? When I call they didn’t mention anything about a hero theme…They called it “Disney’s Princess’ Mother’s Day’s Brunch”…???
