Garden Festival

The Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival is spectacular.  The topiaries are fantastic and my favorite  part.   Disney characters come to life in a very earth friendly way, and they are always a blast to look at.

I have been able to experience the festival twice, and I laugh as I see how much my photography skills (and quality of camera) has changed in two years.

If you ever find yourself at Disney during the festival (and I do recommend going even if you do not have a green thumb LIKE ME) please go to Epcot and look at everything the festival has to offer!

Give the post a bit of time to load, I have attached a lot of pics to this post 😉

Enjoy!

All Smiles at Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace is a favorite among Disney guests.  Reservations are often booked at the 180 day mark, and it is not easy to get into, so listen to me when I tell you this.  Book as early as possible if this is something you want to do.

The breakfast features the typical American breakfast foods, but like I said about Chef Mickey’s the real fun in this meal is the characters.

Winnie the Pooh & friends is the feature here, and they are the most cuddly characters in the park.  I love them, and they make me smile in a big way.  Fond memories of childhood I tell you.

Again I don’t really have pictures of the food, but I do have some pictures of the decorations.

I swear only Disney can have cool topiary decorations like that. I am smiling ear to ear while looking at my photos. I mean come on it is Winnie the Pooh, all I can think about little pooh getting stuck trying to get the honey pot.

At this meal you will meet Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore & Piglet.

I do consider this a must do, if you can. It is pricey, because like all character meals you are going to pay for the character meet & greets.

The meal is located in the Magic Kingdom, and I highly recommend booking 150-180 days before your arrival to the parks. It is VERY hard (but not impossible) to get into the restaurant without reservations.

Breakfast at Chef Mickey’s

Confession.  I don’t really care fore breakfast.  Yes I know it is the MOST important meal of the day, but I am not really a breakfast food person.  When I do eat breakfast, my breakfast of choice is fruit and the occasional waffle.

That all being said, I will enjoy breakfast when I can meet the beloved Disney Characters.

So given that circumstance, I do like breakfast at Chef Mickey’s.  I did not take any pictures of the actual breakfast, because I was more excited about meeting the characters.

If you are reading this because you are researching the option, here is what I remember.

The breakfast is buffet it includes traditional breakfast choices of pancakes, mickey waffles, fruits, yogurt, bacon, eggs etc.  It is all you can eat, and it is pricey.  You are of course paying for the meet & greets.

The characters take turns going from table to table and you have the opportunity to take photos and get autographs if that is your thing.

All of the kids that were around me appeared to be having a blast, and that is of course the best part of the breakfast 😉

Here are my pics from that meal.

Also keep in mind it is a great meal if you are celebrating something! You get a cupcake!
