Cape May Cafe Minnie’s Beach Bash Breakfast features several classic characters dressed in their finest summer outfits. Minnie’s Beach Bash Breakfast is a fun but often overlooked character meal, which makes booking this delightful Disney World character meal easier than others.
Minnie’s Beach Bash Breakfast Location
Disney’s Beach Club Resort hosts breakfast with Minnie and friends at Cape May Cafe. This restaurant is easily accessed by guests of nearby Swan, Dolphin, Disney’s Boardwalk, and Yacht Club resorts.
Cape May Cafe is also within easy walking distance of Epcot International Gateway and the Disney Skyliner stop there. This means guests of Riviera, Caribbean Beach, Pop Century, and Art of Animation have a fairly direct route to Minnie’s Beach Bash Breakfast.
Cape May Cafe Minnie’s Beach Bash Breakfast Overview
Cape May Cafe is a large restaurant partially open to the Beach Club Resort lobby. Decorated with colorful, folded beach umbrellas, crisp white woodwork, and faux sand castles, the bright atmosphere perfectly matches the characters’ outfits.
For dinner, Cape May Cafe features a seafood laden buffet without any characters.
Cape May Cafe Minnie Breakfast Buffet Options
Like many Disney World character meals, Minnie’s Beach Bash Breakfast is a buffet. Cast members only bring drinks and salted caramel beach buns with vanilla glaze to the table. Everything else at Cape May Cafe is self-serve.
Find a diverse variety of options during Cape May Cafe’s Minnie Breakfast. Basics like Mickey waffles, pancakes, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, fruit, and hash browns are a staple of the breakfast buffet.
I was excited to find my favorite Minnie’s Beach Bash Breakfast option, steak and eggs, have returned. These flavorful scrambled eggs with steak and salsa are great alone or pair perfectly with flour tortillas.
Sample more delicious options like smoked ham, biscuits and gravy, crepes, omelets, or poached eggs on a bed of shredded hash browns.
The food quality overall is very good at Cape May Cafe Minnie’s Beach Bash Breakfast. My main complaint is that the dishes were not replenished continuously. This meant we were left waiting for items more than once during our meal.
However, since we had a late morning reservation it’s possible this issue is more pronounced near the end of breakfast.
Cape May Cafe Minnie’s Beach Bash Breakfast Characters
Breakfast is a bonus, but the real reason we go to Minnie’s Beach Bash Breakfast is to meet popular Disney characters. Minnie has invited Daisy, Donald, and Goofy to attend this beachy breakfast in cute summer style.
Our Cape May Cafe Minnie Breakfast Character Experiences
Minnie arrived at our table in a pink, blue, and purple striped wrap dress finished with a large blue bow. A cute mesh and pink ribbon sun hat completes her adorable look.
Ever the gracious host, Minnie hugged us and immediately “told” me how much she loved my bright blue nails.
Minnie did a great job interacting with our table. We also noticed she effortlessly made rounds through Cape May Cafe engaging everyone during our breakfast.
Daisy’s accessories, and sass, enhance her signature style. Dressed in a blue two tone skater style dress with flutter sleeves, Daisy has a colorful hair bow, floral necklace, and matching bangle bracelets.
We had a good laugh as Daisy showed off her accessories and flaunted her modeling skills. Fortunately our server caught a picture of Daisy taking me through some of her favorite poses.
Donald is ready to hit the beach in a Hawaiian style shirt, striped tee, and straw hat. He was very friendly and funny, but relatively brief when visiting with our group.
Goofy arrived at our table in swim trunks, an orange rash guard, and a bucket hat. The sandcastle design on his rash guard coordinates perfectly with the sand castle decor at Cape May Cafe.
Despite his name, Goofy is actually a very sweet character at Cape May Cafe Breakfast. He walked up and immediately gave fist bumps to welcome each of us.

Cape May Cafe Minnie’s Beach Bash Breakfast Pros and Cons
Cape May Cafe Minnie Breakfast Pros
Since Minnie’s Beach Bash Breakfast is a less popular Disney character meal reservations are usually easier to find. This is especially true when comparing Cape May Cafe breakfast availability with Topolino’s Terrace or Chef Mickey’s.
A Cape May Cafe character breakfast is also a convenient option for people staying at an Epcot area resort like Boardwalk, Yacht, or Beach Club.
Cape May Cafe Breakfast Cons
Although the buffet is good, the Cape May Cafe Breakfast costs the same as Topolino’s Terrace, but with decidedly inferior food.
Another con of Minnie’s Beach Bash Breakfast is that some tables are very close together. This makes it hard to get a cute character photo without catching other guests in the background.
Lastly, lack of Disney World transportation to Cape May Cafe is a con for this fun character breakfast. Guests at most Disney World resorts will struggle with transportation to Cape May Cafe since there are no direct buses connecting resorts.
Guests without Skyliner or walking access can reach Beach Club for Minnie’s Breakfast Bash by taking a ride share or Minnie Van.
Another option is taking Disney transportation to Epcot. From here enter the front entrance of Epcot, walk through the whole park, and exit via the International Gateway between the France and UK pavilions. Unfortunately, this option requires a lot of time and a very long walk.
Final Thoughts on Cape May Cafe Minnie’s Beach Bash Breakfast Character Meal
Cape May Cafe Minnie’s Beach Bash Breakfast is an underappreciated Disney World character meal. The characters do a great job interacting with each table and the food is better than some other Disney World buffets.
Cafe May Cafe Breakfast with Minnie is a great option for guests at Epcot area resorts or those staying at Skyliner resorts. It is also a wonderful back up option if Chef Mickey’s or Topolino’s Terrace are booked, but you really want a character breakfast.
