    when and why did characte bkfst at plaze inn start being offered after park opening?

    In the past Ive dont the minnie and friends bkfst at least one day on our trips. There was the added benefit of getting into the parks a little bit earlier than opening and could get on a ride or two before the crush of the morning rush

    Now it appears the breakfast opens with the park. Any reasoning anyone knows of?

    We have done the character breakfast early in the past, but was never able to mingle with MM guests once done, only to wait at rope drop. I was under the impression that they offered the dining before regular park opening on days when MM was available. On Non-MM days, it was park opening. Sorry to hear that has changed, as it was great to do the breakfast in the park with the characters with the first seating and finish up in time to stroll out to the newly opened park.

    When I went last month for rope drop most of the shops and restaurants on main street were open for that half hour before the rest of the park did. I didn't pay attention to weather or not the character breakfast was happening, but I know carnation cafe was serving breakfast right at 8:30 when the park was scheduled to open at 9 am.

    The Plaza Inn breakfast books the first seating 50 minutes prior to official opening on an EMH/MM day and 20 minutes prior to official opening on a morning without EMH/MM. The first seatings do begin before the park officially opens.

    Glad to hear they are still doing it this way. We plan on going again with our next visit.

    I don't believe this is allowed any more, since they moved the location of the rope drops. But you would seriously pay $25 per person to spend less than 40 mins at a character breakfast so you could get a few minutes in Tomorrowland?

    i believe its tied up in the magic morning. Personally i just liked being able to do the fantasyland stuff ie peter pan. Getting on star tours right after breakfast is just not a good idea
