Disney has found yet another way to turn back the clock and take you back to the turn of the century (the 20th century) to a modest coastal setting along the Atlantic seaboard. A time where carefree days meet up with a simple, yet charming atmosphere that is accompanied by great food. Disney’s Cape May Café is located at Disney’s Beach Club Resort in the EPCOT area. Although this Disney Dining Plan location is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner my colleges and I opted to begin our day at Disney by having a buffet breakfast with Minnie Mouse and some of her friends.
The entrance to the restaurant is an easy find from the lobby of the Beach Club Resort. Just look for the sign letting you about tonight’s clam bake that is by an empty lobster pot. Just follow that sign to one of the thirteen character dining experiences Disney has to offer. The inside of the restaurant is comfortably decorated with light woods and pastel colors, plain and yet simple; reminding you that you are at a relaxing beach resort. The dining area itself is quiet large and does fill up more often than you would think as this is one of the few places you are assured to have a dining experience with Minnie Mouse, Goofy, and Chip and Dale.
In the morning the restaurant offers guests a character dining experience from 7:30am to 11am with a buffet breakfast menu ($18.99 for adults and $10.99 for children) which differs from the nightly clam bake. Being a big fan of breakfast and a sucker for a good buffet, I was happy to see that all the staples were there: an omelet station, scrambled eggs, potatoes, fresh fruit, sausage, bacon, assorted hot and cold cereals, and plenty of fresh baked goods. For those readers who know me or who have read my buffet journals in the past, you know that I tried just about everything the buffet had to offer. Good thing I wasn’t going to be doing a lot of walking for a few hours.
The Cape May Café is very convenient for any quests looking for a character dining experience while staying in the EPCOT resorts area. The characters took their time as they signed autographs and took photos at every occupied table. With good food, a charming atmosphere, and Minnie Mouse I would say that the Cape May Café is a must-do while on a Walt Disney World vacation.

Now it's time to tell you about the characters. Cape May Cafe' provides a character breakfast. That is when Disney characters come to your table while you dine, and they just make your morning so bright. They are so funny, it just lights up your day completely. Especially for little kids. The characters usually sign autograph books and they take pictures. But they also have fun with you. For instance, when we went goofy danced with my four year old sister!!! It was so funny and adorable. It was absolutely great. When you enter the Yacht and Beach Club, head straight into the breathtaking lobby. Then make a right and then a left and go straight. There will be a sign outside of it, CAPE MAY CAFE'. Or if your coming from the pool, head to the resort building, and you will find yourself on the sidewalk next to the pool, you'll have a fitness club and Beaches & Cream Soda Shop on your left. Follow the sidewalk until it ends, and there will be a door on your left. Just follow through the door, and into kind of like a maze hallway. When you come out, you will be looking at the Cape May Cafe'. It's very easy to go to, so there is absolutely no reason why not to go there. So don't forget to make reservations, they highly help.
