I just booked our priority seating for Storyteller’s! Can’t wait!
Went to this brunch last year at the Disneyland Hotel and it was worth every penny!!! It was amazing and can’t wait to go back this year!
Anything special going on at Disney World for Mother’s day? I’ll be there with my children and my mom… looking for a mother’s day “something special” for all of us to enjoy..
Hayden…. would your Mom enjoy lunch with the princesses? They have a yummy character meal at Ariel’s Grotto in California adventure although it is one of the more expensive ones. I have never eaten there but the Blue Bayou also looks cool, it is inside the beginning of pirates of the carribean.
Wow! $71.99 for one adult is way too over priced for us. I can take the three of us to eat at a regular restaurant for that price, so for three, we could go out to eat 3 times. Sorry, can’t afford that brunch.
How come they don’t do something like this for Father’s Day, too? I appreciate this but I want my husband to feel just as special on his day.
Pam, do you have any fun ideas for spoiling mom on ANY day in the Disneyland Resort? We won’t be at Disneyland on Mother’s Day this year, we’ll be there in April, and me and my siblings have been trying to think of something we could do for mom as a surprise! Sure wish we could be there on Mother’s Day, though, all of those options just sound DELICIOUS!
