The entry to 1900 Park Fare

The entry to 1900 Park Fare in the Grand Floridian Resort

1900 Park Fare offers a wonderful breakfast buffet in the Grand Floridian Resort. The Supercalifragilistic Breakfast includes the following characters: Mary Poppins, Alice in Wonderland, the Mad Hatter, and other Wonderland friends. On they day we dined there, we found Winnie the Pooh and Tigger, too.

We had our photo take by a professional photographer before being seated. This is delivered to your table to preview, and is available to purchase.

Upon checking in, we reminded the maitre d’ about our daughter’s food allergy and they noted this on our seating ticket. Once we were seated, we reminded our waitress and she called for the chef to visit our table. We informed the chef and he assured us that her meal would be prepared carefully in the kitchen, free of any possibility of cross-contamination. With our daughter’s severe dairy allergy, we never allow her to eat from the buffet. Ever.

Mary Poppins - one of our favorites

The chef prepared dairy-free and gluten-free waffles with maple syrup, crispy bacon and scrambled eggs. She also had fresh fruit, which she really enjoyed and was able to select herself. She chose watermelon, strawberries and grapes. The waitress also brought her a special Tinker Bell toy for her water, that clips to the straw and lights up. This is another example of getting special treatment at Disney when your child has food allergies. There was a girl next to our table who pleaded with her mother get her one.  She told her daughter that our daughter couldn’t eat everything, including the desert, so the staff wanted to make up for that. She felt better, but it reminded me of the “no you can’ts” that our children hear everyday — probably several times a day.

We big kids ate omelets from the omelet station and grits — yes they had grits! We also had french toast, fresh fruit, eggs, pancakes and bacon. In my opinion, this was the best breakfast at Disney. The characters spend lots of time at your table for signatures, photos and to goof around.  Alice was a real “character” trying on our 6-year-old daughter’s leopard and feather jacket. She exclaimed, “Oh I want that jacket, let me try it on” and did! She was really funny and just like the fairy tale character. Tigger remained even as guest were leaving, and kept bouncing around from table to table.

This experience ties Akershus for 1st place for Character Dining, especially for breakfast. It was “Practically perfect in every way!” Thanks, Chef Harry!

We just booked a breakfast here for our trip in November. I am so glad to hear of your positive experiences. My son is peanut/tree nut/egg (although we may challenge this summer) allergic and I'm so excited to let him have "breakfast" out! It's the one meal we never go out for.

We had dinner at 1900 Park Fare with our daughter who has a tree nut allergy. They handled it in the exceptinal way we’ve come to expect from disney. What made this time special was that we had an extra word with the chef (in addition to the normal pre-meal run down). We told her our daughter is told no to almost every cool looking food at WDW (especially desserts). Dinner was good but uneventful. However, when we finished the chef brought her out a spectacular looking dessert especially made for our daughter that made everyone jealous! It was a great moment for our daughter. Well done Disney!

my daughter also has a severe dairy allergy. we are doing to be eating breakfast here one day. I am thankful that I will be able to finally tell her “yes you can have buffet”. Thank you
