I’ll admit it, I’m a sucker for a character breakfast. With 6 kids and a few of them now teens, it brings back all sorts of nostalgia going to these breakfasts. I love the way the kids get to interact with the characters.
For certain, some character breakfasts are much better than others. That being said, we recently visited the Disneyland Princess Breakfast Adventures Napa Rose.
We have been going to Disneyland and Disneyworld character dining experiences for 20+ years. That being said, this is certainly the most incredible character breakfasts we have been to.

Disneyland Princess Breakfast Adventures
Going into breakfast, I already knew that this new character experience was going to be great for me. I absolutely love Napa Rose. The Napa Rose has some of the best food at the Disneyland Resort.
Napa Rose is located inside the Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel Spa. This means it outside the theme parks, so you do not need park admission to get into breakfast.
Valet Parking is included for 3 hours with the Disneyland Princess Princess Breakfast Adventures. Just pull up to the Grand Californian and let them know where you will be dining. Make sure to get your parking validated when you check in to the restaurant.
An Arrival Fit for Royalty
Upon arrival, you can immediately tell this is going to be an amazing experience. The hostess takes you to a table to wait for your dining table. They give the kids princess tic tac toe to play and the adults some champagne to enjoy the experience.
In the background, a violinist plays some Disney music. The overall setting is beyond serene.
The Dining Experience at Disneyland’s Princess Breakfast
Let me tell you, the Princess Breakfast Adventures serves up a feast fit for royalty! You sit down at elegantly appointed tables with napkins folded in a rose. Princesses are walking all around and the place feels like a storybook.
3 Race Meal
Usually, I am not having a 3-course meal for breakfast. I usually grab something small for breakfast at Disneyland. So plan accordingly as you will be quite full after this meal.
We chose to do a little later dining so this Disneyland Princess Breakfast adventure could be a breakfast/lunch.
As you prepare to dine on quite the feast, the waiter offers a wide variety of beverages… OR you can call them your Royal Morning Libations.
This includes juices, hot chocolates, coffee, alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages…like mimosas…YUM…and more.
Your meal will begin with a serving of appetizers. Ours included a delicious mini sandwich from Rapunzel’s Tower, a Creme Brule Banana with Nutella and some amazing yogurt parfaits.
Along with the tray of appetizers is a basket of bread and scones served with a vanilla bean cream sauce. My word of advice, don’t pass up the citrus and vanilla bun because it is delightful.
Here is everything included in the appetizers:
- Open-faced Tangled Ham and Cheese Sandwich with cranberry cream cheese and berries
- Mini donuts
- Banana crepe with Nutella and berry compote
- Citrus & Vanilla Bun
- Magic Carpet Parfait of chia pudding with mango, kiwi, and coconut.
- Creme Brulee with Nutella
Main Course Buffet
Then comes the second course of your Disneyland Princess Breakfast adventures. It comes with plenty of different options that you and your kiddos will love. This course is a buffet style with your classics like eggs and Mickey waffles.
But the Princess Breakfast takes it a step further! The menu also includes Chicken and Mickey waffles, short ribs, fresh fruit, applewood smoked bacon and much more. My personal favorite is always the lobster roll on a brioche bun! Here is the full rundown of everything included.
- scrambled eggs
- Mickey chicken and waffles
- thick cut bacon
- Fruit: apples, fruit salad, oranges, fruit skewers, blueberries, blackberries, & strawberries
- firecracker shrimp with dipping sauce
- Mini mac & cheese
- Braised short ribs
- Roasted tomatoes and asparagus
3rd Course Dessert
Lastly, dessert course comes (if you have room for it). Ours was filled with the cutest cake pops you’ve ever seen (all princess themed.) My personal favorite treat of the Disneyland Princess Breakfast was the mermaid macaroons which decorated in the shape of a clamshell.
- Royal Princess Cake Pops
- Belle’s Raspberry Bouquets
- Ariel Sea Shell macaroons
- Mulan’s Firecracker Sorbet (strawberry honey sorbet made with fresh strawberries & topped with cotton candy and Pop Rocks!)
- Pocahontas Peanut Butter Crunch
You will obviously be meeting the princesses during this experience, but this truly is not like your standard character breakfast. Things have changed since the last time we did the princess breakfast. first off, you meet a princess before you even sit down for breakfast, in our case it was Tiana
Instead of the princesses coming to your tables you can go to the princesses at your leisure.
Instead of waiting for princesses to arrive the kids are allowed to go and visit the princesses at their leisure. This turned out to be really nice because as the princesses rotated in and out it was a new exciting adventure for our daughter, plus you got to go when you were ready.
Surprise Gifts & More Princess
After we finished Disneyland Princess breakfast, our girls were given a bag with some special surprises inside. A drawstring bag with Princess Breakfast Adventures on it and the highlight was a princess necklace.
Also, the photos done by the Photo Pass photographer are also included in the purchase and will be uploaded to your Disneyland app.
This premier dining experience is $125 per person for children and adults and while it is the most expensive dining experience. It truly is such a memorable time that you and your child will never forget. I would say if you can afford to go, then you should definitely experience this breakfast.
The Disney Princess Breakfast Adventure is truly an experience. We love it so much because you get much more out of it than your typical character dining. It is by far the most incredible character breakfast I have ever been to.
There is storytelling, gifts, an incredible meal and plenty of time for photos. We highly recommend this experience, and we already cannot wait to go back ourselves.
How to Get a Reservation
Getting a reservation can be tricky as this experience books up fast. Reservations start 60 days in advance. I would recommend booking at the 60 day mark at 6am. You can book at Disneyland.com or on the Disneyland app.
If you are after 60 days, check out a site called mousedining.com. They will tell you what times are open, and alert you if a reservation becomes available. To enjoy the Napa Rose Princess Breakfast, note that it is only available Thursday through Monday, so make sure to plan accordingly.
