  1. Aww man, I was so excited thinking Crystal Palace breakfast was coming back!! I just need some breakfast lasagna and Pooh’s puffed French toast!

  2. Monica – not to give you a hard time – but no excuses to a huge corp that can give million dollar bonuses to their CEO and cannot offer staff more money to create a better atmosphere to their guests.
    Also, could it be they don’t want non-wdw resort guests into the parks before opening? Its NOW always about the money with Disney – never the customers.

  3. So why offer only lunch and dinner at the Magic Kingdom? Is it because they can charge more for lunch and dinner ($20 more per adult and $10 more for kids) Then there is the hour plus away from the rides – already paid for. Of course lets not forget having made reservations for a character meal, months in advance, then trying to fit in Genie+ reservations around the character meal. That’s Disney Corp always having the guests in mind! (NOT)

    • I have heard they are still having staffing troubles. Having to open the park for dining reservations before the park opens requires a lot more people. Epcot has the same issues with Garden Grill and Akershus. They would have to open the park earlier than their usual 8:30/9:00 to offer breakfast.
