You will want to make note of this if you are planning to enjoy character buffet dining! There is a big price increase.
Price increases have become the norm over the last year or two. They have always been around, but it seems everything is much more expensive throughout 2021 and 2022.
At Disney World, we saw price increases for almost everything. From annual passes to day tickets, we are paying more for a Disney vacation. There are some savvy ways to save money like renting DVC points and sharing meals, but some things cannot be avoided. We have seen big price increases in dining experiences at the Magic Kingdom and at meals where character dining has returned.
Cape May Cafe
Cape May Cafe is a charming, New England inspired restaurant that is full of beachy fun! Located at Disney’s Beach Club Resort, Cape May Cafe serves up breakfast and dinner buffets.
Options include delicious bread, yogurt parfaits, omelettes, french toast, scrambled eggs, sausage, tater tots, and beef hash. You’ll also be treated to Mickey AND Minnie waffles!
At dinner you can expect breads, salad, and an all you care to enjoy Surf and Turf delight. The seafood feast includes mussels, shrimp, clams, and the catch of the day. There is also “Cape May Macaroni and Cheese.”
Dinner also offers up several desserts, which look absolutely incredible! You can see a recent review of Jamie’s dining experience HERE.
Big Price Increase
Back in February of this year, Disney returned the modified dining experience back to a buffet. To make this experience even better, characters returned to breakfast on October 4. It is so much fun to see Minnie and her pals strutting around throughout the restaurant again!
Unfortunately, due to these recent changes it appears Disney has increased the price of the breakfast buffet. Breakfast was previously $25 per adult and $14 per child. Now, the adult price is $45 and the child price is $29. That’s $20 and $15 more, respectively!
The adult price is $45 and the child price is $29 for the character breakfast at Cape May Cafe.
What do you think of this price increase? Does it seem pretty fair for Disney to charge so much for character meals? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below and on Facebook.
