This year on our vacation, we did a character breakfast in one of the restuarants at Magic Kingdom. We ate at the Crystal Palace and saw Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore, and Piglet. It was a blast!
Our time slot was actually before the park opened so we walked through the front of the park before the crowds were in for the day - not a view you normally see of the park - Main Street and the castle without hundreds of people around.
Quite a pretty building inside.
There were mirrors all around the inner walls. Kevin got this reflection of the rest of us eating.
Tigger came to our table first. He was making Kaelyn's plush Tigger "bounce". :-)
Wyatt, a bit hesitant, meets Tigger.

After Pooh and Tigger came by our table, a little bit later, Eeyore came over. Here he is looking at Kay's little Eeyore. By the way, I was so excited to find, some time back, that Kohl's was selling the Pooh stuffed animals and original A. A. Milne Pooh books. I got the various characters for $5 each and since I knew we were doing this character breakfast, we brought them all with us.
Piglet - he was SO cute! Both Wyatt and Kay seemed to really love seeing him.
We even got Wyatt to give Piglet a kiss, which was very brave for him [at the time]. He has since gotten used to the characters and though he [Wyatt] is still a little shy, he likes them.
And who wouldn't love this picture? (or maybe I should say "what PARENT wouldn't love this picture?")
That still didn't come out right but you know what I mean. :-)
In the center of the restaurant near the entrance, they had topiaries of all four characters.
While Kevin and John were waiting to finish taking care of the bill, the rest of us left the table and were walking around taking pictures. Kevin was waiting for the server to come back and Tigger had made his rounds and was back to the table. John took a quick picture of the two of them. When we saw Tigger back by the table, Kay went back over there to see him for a few minutes.

Kevin took this picture of me out front of the restaurant. When we were looking at all the pictures later when I uploaded them to my computer, Kevin pointed out that the way my hand is on the railing for the steps but my body hides the rest of the railing, it looks like I'm standing there with a cane. :-) It's very amusing to me every time I see the picture now because that's how it looks to me now.
