None of the princess character meals are back*. Not CRT, Akershus, 1900 Dinner, Bon Voyage breakfast, or even the tea at Grand Floridian. It looks like staffing for these characters in particular has been difficult. *EDIT: the Snow White dinner is back. That looks to be the one exception.

There is also not enough Norwegian staff back at this point either. But at this stage I would hope they would rethink this location. If its going to be character themed why not just add frozen into it instead of the princess chaos, at least it would be somewhat more fitting and could be something in line with the one on the cruise line. The place is a bottleneck when it is open, the pavilion cant handle any more.

It’s the most challenging one to open at this point.

Akershus was popular because of the princess character dining. Since they can’t even staff enough princesses for CRT, I doubt Akershus will be opening any time soon.

Would be nice if they bothered to start doing breakfast at Epcot again — I can’t understand why there’s no breakfast at Garden Grill, and Akershus was one of their most popular restaurants.

More character breakfast is always a good thing

The Crystal Palace breakfast buffet is one of my family’s favorites so we are excited it is coming back!

This feels like an important domino for those who are watching for a return of the dining plan.

What are the odds of getting a weekday reservation 62 days out? lol

About freakin’ time!!! Poohs puffed French toast…that’s all I need!! IMHO, 1 of the best breakfasts on property.

CP breakfast is my favorite dining spot at WDW. Most of the items offered at any sit down breakfast are similar - bacon, eggs (a bit on the runny side in my opinion, but still good), Mickey waffles, fresh fruit, etc. Each does have something unique or signature. CP has puffed french toast and it's so good. Remember, reservations open Sept. 23. ;)

Hands down CP! My parents even commented they would come here just for the food (instead of with their grandkid to see the characters).

How's the breakfast compared to Chef Mickeys? I have CM on one of our MK days and never done CP breakfast before.
