What did we eat you ask?

 

Breakfast at Chef Mickey’s

  • 5 buffets (2 adult buffets and 3 kid buffets) — the buffet consisted of delectable assortment of baked goods and hearty breakfast foods.
  • Adult buffets cost $41
  • Kid buffets cost $25
  • Many will tell you that the buffets aren’t worth it. This one was different for me perhaps it was the inclusion of the fab 5. Link to full review.
