The pizza itself might not have been too memorable, but at least there's a fun story behind it. And Cape May looks solid! Of all the character meals, it's one that I'd be relatively willing to try (for the opportunity to be in a picture with Donald in his beach attire). Glad it was a good experience and that you were able to get some great family pics there.

Well, I'm all caught up now!
The pizza story was funny since I read Jabead's review as well. I would stop there to mess w/ him, but I can't bring myself to go out of my way to eat WDW pizza. I wonder if he knows he's DIS FAMOUS!?
It seems ur man really ended up enjoying himself even w/ the characters!! Love it!

You've never had Mickey waffles?! That's the saddest thing I've read all day. Given how your family feels about breakfast, you might want to try Roaring Fork at WL for your waffles. That way you won't have to drag everyone to a TS. They have some toppings there as well I believe... Bananas foster maybe?

Fantastic review of cape may. I love the characters in their beach outfits, that will have to go on the list of places to try.

Oh my 15 hrs is a looooong flight! I'd go stir crazy. I like your cure - go to sleep and start over!!

"No, really, trust me, MOST of it is GREAT!"
At least I tried it and marked it off the list of places that we have eaten. Can't say that we would go back again but - check!

You get it.... and even though the first place wasn't so great it did get better.

And for anyone that didn't read about my experience with this same "pizza dude" and therefore doesn't quite understand why I sent Brenda to "mess" with him just a bit, here is a LINK.

Excellent start, Brenda! Bonus points for the video!
Thanks for sharing that Barb. It really helped the context of the "challenge" for that item. So anyone going to WDW and passing by the BW Pizza window - say Hi to Eddie and let him know that Brenda says Hi!

Hi there! Oops! I should have clarified that. It was $31 if I had ordered an entire pizza + 2 slices (not sure if that included drinks.) The actual cost of our meal was $21 which was for 3 slices and 3 drinks - or $7 per person.

See...I should have included Jabeads link - it would have helped those who read her review to make that connection! Glad that Barb helped jog your memory. But yes, that quote is pretty funny!

Hopefully Michael will be more impressed with your next Disney food experience.
You described what we ate so well!!! But YES, Michael did have some wonderful entrees before the trip was over!

I am looking forward to you impressing your DH with future meals! I would agree that it would be hard to beat the scenery though!
Ha! That's funny shortstuff! Now I am starting to feel guilty like I was just using the guy to get an item crossed off my list!!!

I'm glad you enjoyed your meals on the plane trip. I truly miss not having a meal on the plane (now you don't even get a bag of peanuts anymore).

I've learned one thing in our over 20+ visits to Disney World...NEVER order pizza. It's just not good at Disney or most of Florida for that matter (I think it is the water and the ovens they use).

I'm so looking forward to the REAL reviews.
I agree Kathy! I think many women are married to little boys that didn't grow up - but I wouldn't want it any other way.

And yes, I think I learned my lesson about the pizza - other than Via Napoli.

I saw your great news about Alisha!! I am so very happy that all went well.

Hi there! Oh my you were out here? I hope you had a great trip. If you ever come back I would love to meet up sometime! We were just at D-land last night. The park actually closed at 5pm since they were having a red carpet event for all of their employees celebrating 10 years of service or longer.

In one of them I think you knighting your DH with your wand or something
Jabead's challenges made it fun! Especially the part about meeting other Disers.

Awww thanks! And if you noticed I only posted about 160 photos or so for only my 1st album. I think you had what 28 photos - all very nice might I say. It was so funny to see me in the background in two of your photos!! At least I wasn't picking my nose or something!

Michael handed me the wand while they were doing the prince/princess music thing and said "participate" so I had to do something with it.

Cape May breakfast would definitely be on my "must try" list if we ever stay at the Beach Club.

Thanks for the update!
Isn't that funny how so many of us become attached to our favorite resorts and it is hard to change! I completely understand. We took the boat from PO Riverside to DTD and saw the beautiful buildings at POFQ - so lovely.

Yes, at least try Cape May for the food and the really cool unique beach wearing characters.

What??? No Mickey waffles - EVER?? We need to remedy that. I must present you with a list and it will have Mickey waffles at the top of the list!!!

Someone will chime in but I've had Mickey waffles at Contempo Cafe, Cape May, Akershus, 1900 Park Fare, Captain's Grille, Crystal Palace, and I'm sure I'm missing about a dozen others.

I love Mickey Waffles and your potatos look yummy.

Great pictures with the characters. Love how Michael reacted to Goofy with you.
Yay for Cape May during Mark's surprise bday trip - after so long! I hope you enjoy your Mickey waffles.

We only did buffets for breakfast and for what I got, it was pretty consistently hot when it was supposed to be hot. There was one meal that wasn't so hot... wait a bit for that one.

I had forgotten how much I loved Cape May. The service has been great both times (even compared to other buffets) the food selection was good, and the quality of the food was great. I didn't even take photos of all of the unique breakfast options.

I think a photo of you in a tropical print shirt next to Donald at this place would be priceless!!!

Hi happy2012! Glad you read Jabead's review to put it into context. Ha! You are the smart one to not even go to the pizza window in the first place! Yes, despite whatever he said before the character meals - you will always see him smiling AND posing with them.

Like I said, we need to remedy that. Thanks for sharing another place to get these beauties. That was great advice.

Thanks! And yes, it is a great place for breakfast. I like the concept of the beachwear for the characters but I think it is time to update their look to something with a different fabric/pattern.

And oh my gosh!! How did I miss that you have a PTR?? I've gotta read all about all the exciting things that you have to look forward to soon!!!

It all sounds good! I guess Cape May will have to go on my "list" - partly for the food, but also so I can get that picture.

Love your review of Cape May. It was kind of a last minute addition for us this year and we enjoyed it as well. Love, love Mickey Waffles! Wish I had some right now!

Great reviews! Though jumping back and forth between Jabead's and your posts to catch all the references is wearing me out. We're staying at Yacht Club in a few weeks and can't wait to get back to Cape May Cafe. And while at YC, we'll make sure look out for the pizza guy .... thanks for the video!

Oh how awesome that you will be at YC soon! They have done a lot of refurbing there lately.

About that confusion stuff - it's all Jabead's fault since she started it!!!

Seriously though, I hope you have a magical trip!
