Hmm, they went from a long awaited boy-ish oriented meal to a preschooler one? I think alot of people that have been waiting for something for boys will be disappointed. DS is 6 1/2 now and would have no interest in Playhouse Disney now. (2 years ago would have been a different story) On the other hand my DD will love it!

I hope they try to develop something for the "older" boys again.

Couldn't agree more Figaro. I was excited for a Toy Story character meal. From what I gather, the decision to drop Toy Story was because of some issue Pixar had with the plan, not Disney being inept to the needs of males. At any rate, I'm sure there are plenty of 3 year olds thrilled about eating with Rollie Pollie Ollie.

Yo Matt,

Just from my perusing the web this morning I would say that at best this news has not really gotten anyone excited...I know I'm always interested in character meals when they first start up and usually check them out.

However, I think I will pass on this one. H&V would have done well w/o these characters. My guess is that the smart guests won't go because they realize the BF probably has a $5-9 surcharge on it because it is a character meal.

No thanks. I will pass.

I will be watching to see how long this "experiment" will last.

I've giving it 4-6 months.

Still the best deal on property for breakfast lies to the right of Pioneer Hall in Fort Wilderness....Trail's End.

Actually, it is the best deal for BF, Lunch, or Din Din.

Again...I'll be surprised if this character BF will be there by the end of the year.

I have to agree with Mike on this. I have a DD in the "target" audience but we won't go. My DS would be bored stiff and I can't see paying a character breakfast meal price for us. Since DD is only 2, she'll be free but it's not worth it for 2 adults and 1 child.

Plus the characters they have really aren't popular in our house. Bear would be a hit with us, but like others have mentioned, he wouldn't have the room to move about. Maybe Koala Bros or Stanley would be good. Can't do Wiggles or Doodlebops since kids would know they aren't the "real" ones.

We definately would have done Pixar/TS one if it had ever worked out.

I guess we'll just stick with our traditional Cape May breakfast since both kids (& parents :r2d2: ) like the characters there.

Couldn't agree more Scopa. I think the bigger problem isn't so much that we got a Playhouse Disney theme; It's that we heard what we could have gotten with Toy Story and now have gotten this instead. Talk about the grass being greener on the other side....

Great name, but a dissapointment to anyone with children over 4 years old. I really think this narrows who they will attact, and for the most park we think the park is set up more for the next age group and up. Nice for those parents who are looking for something else, but really a dissapointment for me and my family. Where is Buzz, where are the Green Army men!!!!! :r2d2: :cry:

Well, at least character meals have come back to the Studios. I stil wish that we could have had the Toy Story breakfast. That would've been worth getting up and out there early for. Oh well, maybe after this one sinks (it doesn't even sound like the most popular Playhouse Disney characters will be there.) Maybe they'll do a heros breakfast (Hercules, Aladdin, Peter Pan, the Beast, Robin Hood, even the Princes would work). There just needs to be something for boys

Anyone going sooner than September?

I remember the best character meal I've had at the Studios was in the space where Playhouse Disney is currently located. It was called the Soundstage Restaurant, and it featured movie characters from Beauty and the Beast to Hunchback of Notre Dame, and everyone in between. One time I went, Aladdin went through my sketchbook and described several illustrations as "moments from his life." It was a sure treat, and it makes me disappointed to see that go.

One time, while in that area of the Studios, a CM chatted me up, and I told her about how good the Soundstage Restaurant was and asked why'd they had gotten rid of it. Her answer: "So we could bring you Playhouse Disney."

I went in September and I'm sure your 4 year old will love it. It helps if they're familiar with Jojo or Little Einsteins beforehand but the interaction and dancing involved (the kids are called up to dance with the characters in the center of the restaurant) will get any preschooler excited.
