Breakfast à la Art with Mickey & Friends Food Options

Topolino's Terrace Breakfast à la Art with Mickey & Friends is a good way to see classic characters with a delicious meal at Disney World.

The food at Topolino’s Terrace breakfast is a big step above usual character meal fare. Start your meal with croissants, chocolate chip muffins, a maple danish, or my favorite, a bit of all three. The maple danish was a stand out for us with flaky dough and perfect balance of maple sweetness.

My daughter has a food allergy, and none of these pastries were safe for her. The chef instead sent out an assortment of Enjoy Life cookies which made her very happy.

Order individual entrees for your main course with something sure to please everyone on the menu. There are a wide variety of entree options from steak, quiche gruyère, or even a simple dish of two eggs made to order.

Elizabeth opted for two eggs, bacon, and a side of fruit. I ordered the quiche gruyère served with side salad and unbelievable roasted potatoes while my husband opted for the sour cream waffle.

The fluffy waffle with roasted apple was a delicious touch. The orange infused maple syrup brought a unique flavor to the waffle and was good in small doses.

My quiche gruyère was rich and delicious. I loved it, but my husband, who doesn’t like onions as much, said the onion flavor was too strong for him. The roasted breakfast potatoes were a surprise standout of my meal. They were crispy and flavorful which worked well with the bright salad and rich quiche.

The cute story of Breakfast à la Art with Mickey & Friends is that Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Daisy attend a special art school. Each character is trained in a different art with an incredible costume to match.

Mickey is an artist with paint smudged smock and brushes in his pockets. Minnie is a writer, and I couldn’t help but notice she has her handy notebook and pen at the ready much like myself.

Daisy is a dancer with a colorful wrap top and tutu to match while Donald the sculptor has a clay-dusted smock with his carving tools in the pockets. 

Our Topolino’s Terrace Breakfast à la Art with Mickey & Friends Character Experiences

Topolino's Terrace Breakfast à la Art with Mickey & Friends is a good way to see classic characters with a delicious meal at Disney World.

We are huge character meal fans and were excited to try out Topolino’s Terrace Breakfast à la Art with Mickey & Friends after Disney World reopening.

Each character has their own unique introduction over the speaker and then makes his or her way through the restaurant. It is nice that individual character restaurant walkthroughs take place almost continuously. Periodically during breakfast all four characters come out and do a dance in different sections of the restaurant.

The character interactions right now are all socially distanced and not like they have been in the past. I expected characters to stop by and wave to each table individually which would allow time for pictures.

Unfortunately, we had a mixed experience during breakfast. At first each of the characters walked quickly past our table waving, but were inconsistent about interacting with guests. Some tables seemed to have a lot of characters stop to pose behind guests, while others did not.

I switched places with my daughter thinking if she was more visible to the characters we would get better interactions. It helped a little, but not as much as I hoped.

Finally, I began waving at the characters encouraging them to stop anywhere near our table for pictures which worked some of the time. Although Elizabeth is almost a teenager, and I’m an adult, we both love pictures with Disney characters. This is the first character meal where I was unable to get one good picture during our breakfast.

Is Topolino’s Terrace Breakfast à la Art with Mickey & Friends Worth It?

Character meals are my kryptonite; I usually can’t resist them. However, with the Disney World reopening procedures and distancing of characters I don’t feel like the experience at Topolino’s Terrace Breakfast à la Art with Mickey & Friends is worth the cost right now. 

Some people have great character interactions, but it is less consistent than a normal character meal. Character meals are a considerable expense, and we felt like the character cavalcades in the parks gave similar interaction for free.

When things return to normal I would absolutely recommend Topolino’s Terrace Breakfast à la Art with Mickey & Friends. The character costumes, stunning views, and delicious food will make this character breakfast a wonderful way to start your day.
