ORLANDO, Fla. — Starved for (character) interaction?

Don't feel goofy about it — see him directly!

The Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort's popular Good Morning Breakfast with Goofy & Pals is back, open to the public and taking reservations again.

Offered on Saturdays only at Ravello, reservations are required and available between 7 a.m. and 11 a.m. — with updates in procedures even before you get to the restaurant. Overhead temperature screening at the resort entrance is just one new addition for safety.

"All of our restaurants are doing limited-capacity seating that maintains social distancing recommendations," says Dana Berry, director of public relations for Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort. "Reservations are required because the event is filling more quickly than before."

Characters will parade through the restaurant in Ravello-unique outfits, posing at different intervals, which will allow guests to snap photos. Each dining party will also have their photos taken upon arrival; "Disney Magic" allows the characters to be added in; photos will be provided later via complimentary digital download.

Replacing the event's buffet format will be a bakery basket, sliced fruit and choice of entrée, along with coffee and juice options.

"I think our character breakfast is a lot of fun for all ages. They're so expressive and entertaining and the food at Ravello is delicious — no frozen waffles, everything is made fresh," said Berry.

"Return guests will find breakfast favorites on the new prix fixe menu," she added. "From the old-fashioned Belgian waffle to the egg white frittata — my favorite is the cooked-to-order omelet."

Per the Orange County mask ordinance, guests will be required to wear a mask upon entry — removing it for the photo, then putting it back on until they are seated. Pricing is $48 per adult, $28 per child 12 and younger. Valet parking is complimentary; staff will validate inside. For reservations, contact the resort directly at 407-313-7777.
