Our Disney World Christmas vacation was coming to an end. We had an absolutely amazing time visiting all of the parks and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas party was the perfect magical ending. Departure day had arrived but before we bid a final farewell to Disney World we had a character breakfast planned at 1900 Park Fare.
Two Disney trips ago was the first time that we had ever made a breakfast reservation. We had ended up with an extra table service credit and needed to use it so we decided that we would have breakfast before we checked out. It turns out that it worked out really great to have a good hearty meal before getting on the road to head home. Having a really big breakfast pushed our lunchtime back because everyone was so full and also eliminated dinner so we didn’t have to stop twice which meant that we got home faster. Full little bellies and a movie on the way home also means naptime which makes the trip go by faster for the kids.
1900 Park Fare is located at the Grand Floridian resort and during the Christmas holiday season, it is home to a life-sized gingerbread house! We arrived a few minutes early so that we had some time to check it out and the smell of sweet gingerbread met us as we entered the hotel lobby. It was much larger than I expected it to be and it even had a window that opened where guests could walk up and purchase sweet treats throughout the day. I didn’t get any photos of it but I did film it so you can check out the video at the end of this post to see it.
We had dined at 1900 Park Fare before when Branson came with us on vacation when he was three but this was Brody and Brooklyn’s first time. It is a character breakfast which the kids absolutely loved and the food is served buffet style. There were so many delicious foods to choose from as well as an omelet station where a chef would prepare your omelet any way you like! I’m pretty sure that between all of us we sampled just about everything on the buffet. Of course, the hands-down favorite was once again Mickey Waffles!
After breakfast was over it was time to say goodbye to Disney World. We had an absolutely magical week experiencing Christmas at Disney and making memories. Before we left I asked each of the kids what their favorite ride, restaurant, and snack was. Here is what they said:
Branson (9 years old):
Favorite Ride: Flight of Passage
Favorite Restaurant: Akershus
Favorite Snack: Trying the different sodas at the Coca-Cola store in Epcot
Brody (7 years old):
Favorite Ride: Rock n’ Roller Coaster
Favorite Restaurant: O’hana
Favorite Snack: Strawberry Fruit Bar
Brooklyn (4 years old):
Favorite Ride: Tower of Terror
Favorite Restaurant: Akershus
Favorite Snack: Mickey Bar
I’d love to go back in a few years and see how their favorite things change or if some of them stay the same. It’s two months later and they are still talking about the trip and how much fun we had. The memories are the best part of a Disney vacation and we have some really great ones from this trip!
