We enjoy the continental breakfasts (a bit too much!) and wouldn't pay for a cooked breakfast; probably have a character buffet one morning, then enjoy Earl or Starbucks the other days - but neither of those will be cheaper than our breakfast would be at Cheyenne.
Starbucks and Earl of Sandwich are surely cheaper than eating breakfast in the hotel at those prices? Unless you're ordering buffet amounts of food at either of them.

In my opinion instead of, for example, a night at the Cheyenne going up by 50 Euros a night next year, they'll increase the hotels by a bit less but make you pay for breakfast instead.

My issue is with the lack of breakfast places if you don't eat in the hotel, particularly before EMH as none of the Village options open before 8:30am.

You're right, I just checked. For what I would want at Earl - muffin, fruit parfait and latte - its around 9euros. We usually stay now at Cheyenne (and eat far too much at breakfast) so its a few euros cheaper - and healthier - each day.

What are they thinking of? There has to be a point where people are not prepared to pay. I think that last time we were at the Cheyenne DD had a pain chocolat and a little tub of nutella every day. That's not worth 15!

I think dip is getting to expensive. The prices have gone up loads over the last few years, now this. I'm not sure if we will return may stick to Florida. I also love going to Spain but I've noticed those prices have gone up loads. Florida is much better value if you DIY it.

I think I would have to just take continental breakfast with us and a plug in fridge cooler and we could eat in the room, hardly appropriate for a hotel which likes to think it is a 5*. I can see a lot of potential fire risks as people bring toasters with them too. For DLH it really presents a lot of problems, you would have to eat in the park - which is actually quite limited first thing at off peak times especially as so much is closed.

I don't think we would want to do a holiday at DLH again now they have bought in this rule. I would rather do a week in Florida and pay less, just pure madness, what are they thinking?!?
I'm totally in agreement. We have nearly always stayed at the DLH and one of the big benefits (apart from location) was the lovely leisurely breakfast overlooking Main Street. We often did EMH and then went back for 10 am for 'brunch'. A great way to do it.

But now, they are totally alienating DLH guests (who pay more than anyone else for their standard rooms!?). I mean who is going to pay 200-400 per night for a standard room with no breakfast to then have to trek somewhere to try and find breakfast - as others say, they don't even have proper fridges you can use. I for one wouldn't head in the opposite direction to the park at that time to try and buy breakfast! I think the Cable Car Bakery is open early in the park, doesn't have that much to choose from but you can get a pastry and a coffee!

Next thing, it'll be Starbucks on Main Street .

The new Plaza Gardens breakfast looks great but as Dav says how on earth is the pricing going to work with tiered pricing for hotels. Also, it's not an everyday thing is it! I always feel Paris resort over complicates everything don't they! And I'm wondering why you can't eat there if you aren't a hotel guest? Surely if you have a park ticket, you are entitled to book a character meal like WDW/DL etc?

I'm so tempted to book our hotel now but we've definitely lost out as the standard rooms in the DLH are no longer available - it's terrace rooms and I begrudge paying extra 300 per room for a few doors lol! But breakfast is a big thing to us - the way we work it, it sets us up for the day and I'd really miss not going into Inventions every morning and looking at the view (but certainly won't be paying 23 each for the priviledge). We definitely won't be going twice next year with all these price increases DH wasn't keen, he'll be even worse now if I tell him about all this lol!

I suspect some of this is also to do with the fact that they are trying to stop the locals (cheap as chips APs, don't spend much but drain on facilities like Cafe Mickey etc), from enjoying so much without putting their hands in their pockets a bit more .

I just don't know where it's all going - I suppose something has to pay for all the refurbishment that is taking place! But honestly, I think they'll drive people away. I love DLRP, more than WDW, so I'm not even sure I'd do another Disney resort - and that takes a lot for me to say! I'd still like to do Tokyo one day but it's hardly a 'short break' that you do every year...

I was actually starting to feel more optimistic about the Park with the arrival of Star Wars and a few other changes. This has got me in the doldrums now though lol!

Market Street deli is open for breakfast, definitely had a croissant and drink from there. It's expensive too though, about 5 or 6 euros for them.

It won't be too bad if they reduce the hotel prices but I don't think they will do that!

A bit confused by the characters breakfast, if that's the only charge then surely you'd just do that rather than eat in your hotel? If you have to pay the hotel fee too how is it fair that someone at DLH has to pay 23 quid plus the charge for the character breakfast while someone at Santa fe only pays 13 quid plus the character breakfast charge?
I wonder if that is just the onsite price? I can't see them having a character breakfast actually in the park, which is not open to offsite guests! That would be shooting themselves in the foot.
