Inside This Post Inside This Post

One of our favorite offerings at Walt Disney World is character dining, so you know we are extra excited that 1900 Park Fare has returned! As of April 10, 2024, the restaurant at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa continues its iconic history while also bringing in some new, enhanced touches — including a whole new lineup of characters! Here is everything you need to know about this enchanting restaurant, plus our full breakfast review.

Overview of 1900 Park Fare

Located off the main lobby of the Grand Floridian, 1900 Park Fare pays homage to early 20th-century carousels with whimsical artwork and decor complimenting the white resort interior. The reopening features a refurbished dining room with a new mural and portraits of favorite Disney characters. Keeping with some of the restaurant's rich history, Big Bertha — an antique organ that has resided there since 1988 — remains a centerpiece.

With the 1900 Park Fare reopening, the restaurant hosts a whole new lineup of characters! While dining, guests can meet Aladdin (in his Prince Ali outfit), Cinderella, Mirabel and Tiana (in her new look from Tiana's Bayou Adventure). All the characters understand the power of making a wish. It's great to see a mix of classic and new characters, especially with rarer outfits. You know we frogs are always excited for more "The Princess and the Frog" representation!

Our Final Thoughts

1900 Park Fare - Strawberry Soup

We had breakfast at the recently reopened character dining and felt like Disney royalty. With beloved character interactions, a heartwarming wish granting ceremony and a delectable all-you-can-eat buffet, this opulent dining experience was truly a wish come true. As soon as we entered the grand hall of a dining room, we were surrounded by stunning portraits of Disney's notorious wish makers, such as Ariel in her grotto wishing to be part of our world, Snow White at her well wishing for true love, Belle in her village wishing for "adventure in the great wide somewhere" and even Asha wishing on Star for more for the people she loves.

As soon as we sat down, we were served our first glass (of many) of Walt Disney World's delicious POG (passion-orange-guava) juice. We were also given a card with a wishing star on it and all the wish-makers' autographs on the back where we told to write down our heart's greatest desire. (What do you think we wished for?)

After our waitress took our drink orders, we were free to make our way to the buffet where we stacked our plates high with hearty savory options, such as Cheesy Potato Casserole, Croissant Breakfast Pizza and Classic Eggs Benedict with Hollandaise Sauce and mouthwatering sweet options, such as Cinnamon Pull Apart Bread, Bread Pudding with vanilla crème anglaise and, of course, Mickey Waffles. Everything hit the spot ... but the (wishing) star of the show was the famous Grand Floridian Strawberry Soup with fresh strawberries and whipped cream. It tastes exactly like a creamy strawberry milkshake in a bowl. Talk about refreshing!

Once we were all settled back at the table, our favorite wish-makers started coming around and greeting us. First was Aladdin who recalled his fateful meeting with Genie and told us that he wished Jasmine were there to enjoy a nice meal with him. Next up was Mirabel who wondered if the food was as good as her mamá's and showed us how all her family members were represented on her dress. Then, we got to meet Cinderella who told us how Gus Gus was trying to swim in the Strawberry Soup and pointed out all the "charming" details on her beautiful ballgown. Lastly, Tiana came by and informed us of the importance of sensible shoes in the bayou and how difficult it is to feed all her new critter friends. They all spent so much time with us and posed for a plethora of pictures.

The cherry on top of the whole experience, however, was the wish-making celebration — narrated by none other than Jiminy Cricket! The iconic conscience instructed us to hold our wishing star in the air and lead us in a group wish. He then told us that some wishes are granted right away while others take a little time, but that everything we need to grant our wish is already within us. We just need to believe in ourselves. (You can bet I was tearing up at this point — especially when the celebration ended with "When You Wish Upon a Star!") The wish-making celebration hoppens about once every hour. And don't worry if you have a late meal time! Jiminy made sure to help us make our wish even after breakfast officially ended at noon.

This character dining location has been well-loved for many years and for a good reason. We're beyond frogcited it's returned with some new renovations but the same magical charm! The restaurant itself continues the elegance of the Grand Floridian with a variety of food options and a unique set of characters. We can't wait to return for dinner!
