Foodie Friday: Cape May Cafe Character Breakfast Review

  Located in the Beach Club resort is a fun and delicious character breakfast at Cape May Cafe. Here you will find a buffet style breakfast where you get to meet Minnie,  
 
Goofy,
 
 
and Donald,

 


all in beach attire.

  The buffet includes your standard buffet fare: eggs, bacon, sausage, pastries, fruit, and of course Mickey waffles. One thing that I found to be different was that they offered asparagus, which I'm not a fan of and didn't realize it was a breakfast food. Breakfast is available from 7:30 - 11 am. The price ranges from about $26-$30 for 10 and older, and about $14-$17 for 3-9, depending on the time of year you go.

  One more great thing about CMC is where it's located, The Beach Club. It's a beautiful resort, along with it's sister resort the Yacht Club, and right across the lake you can see the Boardwalk. When you check in they give you a pager, much like you see in many popular chain restaurants, so it gives you the freedom to explore a little bit. In fact, just outside, there is a beach with plenty of chairs so you could work on your tan before you eat.

  I would say that CMC is a great place for breakfast, a little more laid back and less crowded then some of the more popular character meals. Though this was our first time going here, I have looked at ADR's for it in the past and every time there has been availability, which, to me shows that it is a hidden gem. If your kids, or you for that matter, love Minnie, Goofy, or Donald, I would say check this out. We will definitely eat here again. Have you ever eaten here? What did you think? Until next time have a Magical day, and see you real soon!

Who's Who Wednesday: Contributer Kayla



   Howdy, folks! My name is Kayla, I'm a 19.5 year old college sophomore. I've loved Disney since I was born and my family and I have been to WDW 5 times. Despite living 1000+ miles from the magic, I'm a WDW pro and my head is filled to the brim with Disney knowledge. I am a digital media major and will be applying for the Fall 2013 Disney College Program as a Photopass Photographer. I hope that once I graduate college I'll pick up an internship with the company and eventually work for the mouse full time! My past time is photography and I always look forward to snapping photos of my favorite place! Another hobby of mine is running and I can't wait to run a Disney race someday.

   I am continuously reading books that pertain to Disney/Pixar and am always looking to learn something new. As a vegetarian I hope that some of my restaurant reviews will shed some light on the different food options available at the world. I love all the parks equally but my favorite rides are Carousel of Progress, Peoplemover, and Spaceship Earth. I have stayed at All Star Movies, Pop Century, and Caribbean Beach and obviously a massive Disney/Pixar film fan. I am excited to be able to write and talk to friends about our love for Disney and hope I can provide a youthful and fresh perspective!

You can also find me on my (mainly) Disney tumblr: http://spiritofadventure23.tumblr.com/

Pixel Play Arcade: Art of Animation

If your family is like mine, you will most likely be spending some time at your resort arcade. My kids flocked to it like bugs to a zapper. Located just off the hotel lobby, is the Pixel Play Arcade. As you enter, there are lots of scattered boxes, which are actually small comfy little places to sit! This is Something not many arcades in Disney property offer. I loved this idea, that the parents could sit and rest, and just let the kids enjoy themselves while you had full view of them at all times. Most value resorts have one small bench in the lobby, and you can't really watch the kids that way.

 The games take the standard digital points cards, where you can use your credit card to buy points and no tokens or quarters are needed. The card is nice, and its reloadable if you want to add more points for later.

 The room is very colorful from floor to ceiling. Its a quite loud and active place. There are so many sounds, and colors swirling and dinging on the games, I found myself ready to go after a few minutes, but it was enjoyable for the kids. The lighting is pretty cool! The games range from old school favorites to state of the art, never before seen video games. It should be fine for everyone else though. The arcade was was really neat, but I much prefered to stay in the front  where the seating was.

 Over all this is the best arcade I've revoewed in a value resort because its new, up to date, and very entertaining. Perfect place to spend a rainy day!
