A Rowdy Good Time at Whispering Canyon Cafe

This is my go-to meet-up meal for enjoying a bountiful breakfast with friends.

The platter includes Scrambled Eggs, Western Home Fries, Bacon, Sausage, Mickey Waffles, Buttermilk Biscuits, and delicious Sausage Gravy!

We have 4 or 5 character breakfasts during our 16 night stay at Disney every year. Chef Mickey's on the first day is a ritual for us, then we usually go to Crystal Palace (before Magic Kingdom gates open), Cape May (nice and peaceful), and Ohana (not so good food but great with Lilo and Stitch). This year we need to ditch two as we have bookings at Tusker House and Garden Grill (before Epcot opens). Too many choices....................

I know you think this is WDW for adults, but I have to say, it surely is NOT for senior adults on fixed incomes! For the price of one of these breakfasts, my husband and I would have to get at least two meals, if not four! I would love to come back to WDW, but it is way beyond our ability to pay even for the entrance tickets!
