It’s usually not in the family travel budget to stay at a fancy-schmancy on-property Disney resort. Although pricey, stays come with lots of benefits and perks such as walkability to the parks, Extra Magic Hours at the parks, Disney Fastpass+ up to 60 days prior to arrival, and more.

But you can enjoy a very special perk at a high-end hotel without staying at one.

What’s a visit to Disney World without an up-close encounter with our favorite characters? Without having to pay for the hefty theme park admission, start the Disney day at the Four Seasons Resort Orlando, a Disney-operated AAA Five Diamond Resort for a character breakfast.

The resort’s Good Morning Breakfast with Goofy & His Pals isn’t the standard buffet fare, but an upscale experience with meet-and-greets from Goofy, Mickey Mouse, and Minnie Mouse and a meal at Ravello’s with a made-to-order breakfast menu, beverages and desserts.

Adults pay $48 and kids 12 and under $28. Add bottomless mimosas or Bloody Marys for $15 each. The Good Morning Breakfast is offered from 7:30am to 11am on Thursdays, Saturdays, and select Tuesdays. Reservations are strongly recommended; 407-313-7777.

By the way, room rates at this gorgeous Four Seasons Resort start from $725 a night.
