Money Saver Monday!! Get More Bang for your Buck at Character Breakfasts

Happy Monday!!! I truly hope that everyone has been able to stay warm. :0)

If you are traveling with small children or if you are character lover, you won’t want to miss the opportunity to dine with the characters at breakfast. While the breakfasts can be a bit pricey, if you plan properly you can actually save yourself some money for the day. 

Here is the best way to get more bang for your buck at a character breakfast:

On a day when Magic Kingdom has Extra Magic Hours in the morning, schedule a character breakfast at one of the lower cost locations below. The key is to schedule that breakfast at the latest time possible (this is usually between 11:15 and 11:30), this way you can go to Magic Kingdom for the morning and take advantage of the lower crowds. By the time you have hit all of those attractions, you will feel ready for lunch...but you will be doing it breakfast style!! :0) via google images 

Another great thing about choosing a character breakfast at the latest time possible is that the restaurants are not open for lunch. This means that it really starts to slow down; hence you are getting one on one time with the characters rather than having a mad rush for food and character greetings. Being that you are using this as a breakfast/lunch it may be a good idea to get yourself a light snack to hold you over for the morning...for me that would be coffee. :0)

Here is a list of some of the more reasonably priced character breakfasts: 

Crystal Palace at Magic Kingdom
1900 Park Fare at Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
'Ohana at Polynesian Resort 

Each of these locations will cost about $22.99-$24.99 for an adult and about $12.99 for a child.  These are all buffet options that will allow you to get a nice hearty meal in the middle of the day to keep you going. Last, keep in mind you are getting lunch but paying the breakfast price...yay!! 

See ya real soon!
