Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel

  • Which meal at the Crystal Palace is more magical and tastier? Bf, lunch or dinner? How does it compare to 1900 Park Fare? Thank you!
  • - Asked by liza from Texas on 10/2/2013
  • Hi, Liza!  I think the meals at Crystal Palace are all tasty!  The buffet offers a great selection of menu items at all three of the meals.  Breakfast features all of the traditional menu items, including made to order omelettes, a variety of breakfast meats, cereals, pastries, and other familiar breakfast offerings.  

    Lunch and dinner offer similar offerings, including a variety of salads, pastas, carved meats, and an assortment of desserts.  Lunch usually also has deli meats and cheeses, and dinner might feature an additional protein offering.  

    1900 Park Fare has very similar menu items at breakfast, although you may find some upscale offerings, such as lobster eggs Benedict and smoke salmon.  Dinner usually has a salad bar, hot soups, some sushi offerings, and delicious desserts.

    The big difference is the characters.  Crystal Palace usually features characters from Winnie the Pooh, and 1900 Park Fare at breakfast may have characters from Alice in Wonderland and Mary Poppins.  Dinner typically features characters from the story of Cinderella.

    I think the food is generally the same quality and taste, which is very good buffet food.  The characters are a personal choice situation, so you may prefer Pooh over Cinderella.  If I had to choose one, Pooh wins in my book all the time.  I also much prefer the Crystal Palace decor and layout to 1900 Park Fare.  Crystal Palace just feels more open and airy, and I love it there!

    I hope this helps as you try to make your decision!
