While you can find The Donald at various locations throughout Walt Disney World, the one place you will always find Disney's Donald Duck, is at the Animal Kingdom's Breakfastosaurus located, appropiately enough, in the Restaurantosaurus. This uniquely themed character breakfast is hosted by The Donald along with his pals, Mickey Mouse, Goofy and Pluto. Daily seatings are from 8am to 10am and features an All-You-Can-Eat breakfast buffet with Pancakes, French Toast, Scrambled Eggs, Omelets, Bacon, Sauage, Potatos, Breakfast Pizzas, Oatmeal, Toast, Bagels and other favorites. Milk, orange juice and coffee is brought to you to by your server. Prices are $18.99 for adults and $10.99 for child. Tax and tip not included.
The food at this breakfast has not gotten rave reviews over the years. This is our second time at the Breakfastosaurus. The first time a few years ago, the buffet was set up in the main dining room, now it's in the counter area which is a vast improvement as identical buffets go the entire length. This has greatly expanded the food selection and makes for shorter lines. I found the food hot and tasty and on a par with all of WDW's breakfast buffets. I love a hot breakfast with a large selection to choose from.
Character interaction at Donald's Breakfastosaurus has been described as hurried by many people. I would have to agree but with the understanding of the size of this restaurant. We were in a side room off the main dining hall and Goofy, Pluto, Mickey and Donald Duck each were introduced and visited each of the 5 groups in our room. Each table had plenty of time for photographs and autographs but not much else. Since this breakfast only lasts 2 hours, the characters are very busy as they greet guests at all the tables. Keep this in mind when you go and be prepared with your cameras and autograph books. Your server will clue you in as to when the characters will be coming to your table so you won't be in the buffet line.
If you get an early reservation before Animal Kingdom opens, you check in with a CM at the park's entrance. You come through the turnstiles and wait for your party's name to be called. With other early diners, you are brought back to the Restauantosaurus. There you wait for a few minutes to be seated at your table. Your server will take your drink orders and explain the process of getting your food. As in all buffets, your server will clear away plates as you empty them and as you get others to fill. Another advantage to an early reservation, is seeing the Tree Of Life with no other people milling about and, after you are done eating, I would recommend going on the Kilimanjaro Safaris for an early morning trek through Africa. Many of the animals are very active in the early morning.
Donald's Breakfastosaurus accepts dining reservations up to 180 days in advance. If Donald Duck is a favorite of yours or your families, you can not miss finding him here.
