Also, breakfast is usually cheaper. And if you are there at the tail end of breakfast, supposedly you can enjoy some of the lunch food too.
What really happened with us: We had a 10:45 breakfast (brunch) reservation, arrived at 10:35, weren’t seated until 11 am. Restaurant was clearing out from breakfast crowd, characters dashed by but looked like they were at end of their ropes (as did their “handlers”), very brief character experience compared with every other character meal, food was getting a little limp (especially the fresh fruits and veggies on the buffet), and it was almost impossible to enjoy food, get up to buffet, AND see characters. We were in and out in 35 minutes and felt very rushed by our server. Worked out to about $3.25/minute for our family of 4 just to be in the restaurant. It was our 3rd and worst experience at CP (Why do we keep going back? I do not know. Our only good experience was supper ADR last year at 6:50 before MNSSHP when we didn’t have party tickets, restaurant was quiet, great character interaction and fresh food with short lines.)
