February 12 marked the start of a new breakfast service at the Auberge de Cendrillon at Disneyland Paris: The Disney Princess Breakfast. And after a few weeks in service, we went to try it out.
The setting of the Auberge de Cendrillon has always been the best place to meet some Disney royalty. Best of all, you can also have a full, table-service breakfast here, which makes for a nice break from all the breakfast buffets that you can find at Disneyland Paris.
Meeting the Disney Princesses is easy and stress-free because you don’t have to leave your table to get your food.
The food that is served is pretty good, but nothing out of the ordinary.
A three-tiered pastry caddy awaits when you arrive at your table.
It’s filled with mini baguettes, danishes, chocolate croissants, and regular croissants, as well as an assortment of jams, butter, and Nutella.
Shortly after you get your coffee and orange juice, they bring out the rest of your breakfast. The main dish has your basic scrambled eggs, veal and chicken sausages, pan-fried potatoes and mushrooms, and exactly one Mickey waffle, which unfortunately comes without any syrup.
Alongside your main dish, you also get a row of sweet and savory verrines. These five little glasses come with smoked salmon, crunchy vegetables, homemade muesli, fruit salad, and cottage cheese. The crunchy vegetables have a spicy, vinegary taste to them, but overall, it’s a fun way to try some new things.
We didn’t ask for more pastries (which we could have done,) but we did get some more coffee and orange juice.
The best part of the breakfast is meeting Cinderella, Princess Aurora, and Snow White in a relaxed atmosphere that makes for a great meet and greet and photo opportunity. As this offering is still relatively new, the restaurant wasn’t filled up, so the Princesses did give us a nice amount of time and came by every table again to say goodbye.
Breakfast with the Disney Princesses is served every day at 8:15 AM and 9:45 AM until April 1, 2019. It costs €49 and €39 for kids, which isn’t the cheapest option for a breakfast, but taking everything into account, this is still a decent value for a table service breakfast served at the Auberge de Cendrillon. As there are two time slots, the first seating has to be out before the second one arrives. We feared we wouldn’t have enough time to enjoy breakfast and have some time left to spend with the Disney Princesses, but that was not the case at all. We had plenty of time, and started our day out with a great meet and greet. No standing in line at the Pavillion des Princesses!
If you’re at Disneyland Paris before April 1 to check out the Festival of Pirates and Princesses, definitely go check out this offering… but don’t forget to make an advance reservation.
