A New England Clam Bake in King Mickey's Court
With plate in hand, I zero in on the seafood side of the four sided Cape May Buffet.
Should I start with the New England Clam Chowder I wonder as my wife fills her first of many small
kettles of freshly steamed clams. Other items on the seafood side include mussels, corn on the cob,
baked fish and melted butter. I move counter-clockwise from the seafood to check out the salad and
fresh fruits that include peel'n eat Shrimp, Caesar salad, Garden salad, vegetables and assorted dressings. Moving
on I come to the meat & potato side of the buffet with BBQ ribs, flank steak, grilled chicken, mashed
potatoes and vegetables. The corner between this section and the desserts is a lowered area for the
kids and their favorites: mac & cheese, hot dogs, chicken fingers and assorted Jell-O flavors.
Ah, the dessert side! I recommend you first scout out the entire buffet before you check out the
desserts. Then refigure out your meal to leave room for strawberry shortcake, cheesecake, various
cookies, hot apple crumb, puddings, cakes and mousse.
NOTE: Since this review was written back in 2002, the Cape May Buffet now features a Prime Rib
Cutting station. Enjoy!
The Cape May Cafe in the Beach Club is found in the Epcot resort area and can be reached by boat, bus or car.
It's within walking distance of Epcot's International Gateway entrance or Disney's Boardwalk. The restaurant
itself is open, brightly decorated with a seafaring theme. Kids and their families will enjoy the table
coverings of butcher paper as they color it with the supplied crayons. I witnessed many playing tic-tac-toe
and other favorite games. Your server will even use it to write notes on best selections on the buffet least
you forget. I saw others simply dump their clams on the table and dig in!
Prices are $23.99 for adults and $9.99 for children (aged 3 to 11). All-you-can-eat Crab Legs can be ordered
for an additional charge that varys with the season. Beverages are also extra like all of Disney's dinner
buffets. Priority seating can be made up to 90 days in advance.
