Character dining has always been a popular past time. It’s a great way to see the characters and have some guaranteed time with them. Among the newer dining options is the Disney Princess Breakfast held at the Napa Rose inside of Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel and Spa.
How Much Does It Cost?
Breakfast begins with a hefty price tag of $125 per person. This is the price for both kids and adults. It does not include the tip or tax.
What Is On the Breakfast Menu?
The buffet comes with three courses. For adults, tea and coffee and sparkling wine are complimentary. Adult beverages can be added for a fee.
How Does It Work With the Princesses?
In the pre-pandemic days the characters come around to your table and speak with you, sign autographs, and take photos.
During the pandemic, characters were stationed at a safe distance and guests were able to interact and take photos with them from a distance. Guests were able to go outside at anytime to see the princesses, who would rotate every twenty or so minutes.
At the time this is being published, I have been told that the characters will resume pre-pandemic style meet and greets. This means the princesses will be available for interaction coming to your table, but this is subject to change.
What Princesses Are Typically At the Breakfast?
This is always subject to change.
The entire experience is supposed to take two hours.
When Is the Breakfast Offered?
Thursday through Monday from 8 to 11 am.
Is Parking Included?
5 Hours of complimentary valet parking at the Grand Californian is included. Be sure to get your parking ticket validated. Be warned after 5 hours the rates are expensive. For valet parking the first hour is $50!
What Else Is Included?
There will be a photopass photographer on hand. Guests have the option to participate in a self-portrait and princess adventure.
Adult guests are given a box of princess chocolates and a glass of champagne.
Children are given a tiara, pen, badge, necklace/sword, and an autograph book.

What if I have food allergies?
Call the Napa Rose ahead of time to advise them of any allergies. There are normally allergy friendly menus available. I would also encourage you to tell the Cast Member at check in of any concerns.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. As a former cast member I am always happy to help.
