Only at Walt Disney World …
Mrs. Mom and I are usually pretty frugal. When we get breakfast, it’s usually pretty cheap. We can eat at McDonalds (we like McDonalds breakfast) for under $10. So when we started tallying up the bill from our Donald’s Safari Breakfast we were shocked to see the total. ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS!!!!!! 10,000 pennies. Ten breakfast’s at McDonalds all gone in one fail swoop.
I know you must be asking just how I came up with the $100 total. Yes, it does seem a bit high, but hold on. All will become clear shortly.
Mrs. Mom and I awakened the day at Tusker House this morning. We fought the crowds to get to our 8:05 reservation.
I’ve got to talk to the guy that planned this trip. We got to educate him on how to plan a day. You never get start with breakfast in a park. That’s just not a great way to start a day.
We were stopped by the rope drop. There were a ton of people waiting.
When we arrived at Tusker House, we were herded into a line to get our picture made with Donald. Whooopee! Donald got Mrs. Mom laughing by kissing her hand. We took the picture and went in to eat. We were seated and our server came quickly to our table with a pitcher of Jungle Juice. She explained what was in the juice and asked what we wanted to drink.
Mrs. Mom picked up the Jungle Juice and took a sip. (Dad is not a morning juice person so I wasn’t about to take the first drink.) She said it was pretty good so I took a sip. WOW. That was good. It may have been the best thing I tasted today (and we went to ‘Ohana this evening.) I drank 3 glasses and wondered if I could get some shipped home.
We grazed through the buffet. We talked to Donald and Daisy. We ate some more and then it happened. A nice young lady approached our table and asked if we’d like to buy the pictures with Donald? Can we see them? Of course. I don’t know what came over me, but I bought the $27 photo package. What’s wrong with me. The bill was something like $60 ish dollars. Of course I left a nice tip and before you know it, we had a $100 breakfast. What’s up with that?
The breakfast was OK, but nothing to write home about (except for the Jungle Juice). But $100? No more character meals until the kids have kids.
