If you and your family are planning to be at Walt Disney World Resort this Mother’s Day, May 10, why not take Mom out to a bountiful Mother’s Day brunch, Disney-style? Several eateries are hosting lavish, hearty buffets to pamper mothers visiting the Mouse.
The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotel‘s Garden Grove is the perfect venue for families with kids of all ages, as it comes complete with character interactions under a whimsical, 25-foot oak tree centerpiece. From 7-10 a.m., a special Mother’s Day breakfast menu includes hand-crafted bacon, open-faced crab sandwiches, potato gratin Dauphinoise, and yogurt mousse parfaits. Little ones will be happy with the scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, and Mickey waffles–and, of course, seeing their favorite Disney characters. (Chip and Dale, Goofy, and Pluto will be in attendance.)
Additionally, a special Mother’s Day brunch menu, served from 10 a.m.-6 p.m., features herb-crusted prime rib, quiche, and green bean almondine. There are also a variety of other options at the different buffet stations, including Florida Red Snapper Piccata, and smoked salmon.
Both Mother’s Day dining experiences at Garden Grove are $35.99 for adults, $19.99 for children (ages 3-9), and free for kids under age 3. For reservations, call 407-934-1618.
