The "Sunrise Safari Breakfast" includes "fresh pastries, exotic fruit & chia parfaits, glazed pork belly bacon, pan-seared sausage and roasted gold potato & onion hash." But, as with most of Disney's upcharge events, the experience includes more than just the food. After the meal, diners will get to take a turn on the mic as they skipper one of the Jungle Cruise boats before the park opens to the public. Diners also get a keepsake Tribal Mask, some of which likely will end up on eBay as diners attempt to recoup part of the cost of the experience.
The event starts Sept. 21 and runs for a few selected days between then and early December.
Walt Disney World has been adding a variety of upcharge experiences in recent years, usually in the form of dessert parties. But the Disneyland Jungle Cruise breakfast sets a new standard for pricing, at $300 a head. (Insert your favorite Trader Sam joke here.) Will the locals who make up the majority of Disneyland visitors (especially at this time of year) be as willing to pay for an upcharge experience as the typically more free-spending, out-of-market Walt Disney World visitors have been?
Update: $300 for breakfast too much? Then how about $150 for dinner... during the upcharge Mickey's Halloween Party? The new Mystical Spirits of the Blue Bayou Halloween Dining Experience includes a three-course meal at the Blue Bayou and reserved seating for the Halloween Screams Fireworks Spectacular, as well as live entertainment in the Bayou, hosted by Dr. Facilier, who will present you with a lithograph of original artwork by Disney Animator Eric Goldberg.
