We’re getting our first look at the food and royal festivities that will be part of the all-new, magical memory sparking Disney Princess Breakfast Adventures coming to the Napa Rose inside Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa starting this weekend. While at the breakfast, families will share special moments with some favorite Disney Princesses while also enjoying a three-course brunch from the award winning Napa Rose kitchen staff. The morning also includes enchanting activities, intimate story time, a private portrait location, and premium keepsakes.
The experience is offered 8 a.m. to noon, Thursdays through Sundays, in the elegant surroundings of Napa Rose restaurant, where guests are welcomed into an unforgettable gathering and charming new storytelling experience. During the breakfast, Disney Princesses such as Belle, Tiana, Ariel, Jasmine and others arrive to greet guests and make memories with friends and families.*
“Disney Princess Breakfast Adventures delivers a truly unique, immersive character dining experience with the upscale setting and service of Napa Rose,” said Eric Quezada, manager at Napa Rose. “Along with quality time and intimate interactions with Disney royalty, this experience offers an incredible princess-themed breakfast menu created by our talented resort culinary team, led by Executive Chef Vincent Cachot and Executive Pastry Chef Jorge Sotelo. The flavors and themed options are inspired by the legendary Disney Princesses.”
The Napa Rose presents a royal feast for all ages with breakfast and brunch items served family style, with hot items and side selections featured at the kitchen counter, from sweet to savory, light to rich. To start, guests may try the Sunrise Citrus and Vanilla Bun with raspberry glaze, assorted fruits and berries, and Caramel Beignets. Young princesses and princes will enjoy House-made Mac and Cheese, Mini Chicken and Princess Waffles and Pulled Beef Sliders.
Heartier items the grown-ups may gravitate toward are the Braised Short Ribs and Roasted Nueske Pork Belly or the Roasted Tomato and Asparagus dish with lemon olive oil. Sides include roasted root vegetables and heirloom potatoes, artisan breakfast sausage, bangers and more.
Decadent desserts are served family style and themed around princesses, featuring Chocolate Chip Princess Cake Pops, Petite Raspberry Tarts and Sea Shell Macarons with mango passion fruit ganache. Complementing this enticing array, Napa Rose’s expert mixologists have created a collection of sweet, refreshing mocktails and sparkling beverages for the kids and royal cocktails and Champagne for adults.
The morning adventure continues on the restaurant’s patio. Inspiring a whole new world of possibilities, girls’ and boys’ imaginations will ignite as they delight in storytelling that’s inspired by confident, kind and courageous Disney Princesses who dream big and celebrate who they are.
Different princesses visiting each day will share the moments when they felt empowered to be their true selves. Mulan will encourage children to strike a pose to discover their own inner warrior, while Rapunzel will share how she felt when she found the courage to explore the world outside her tower, showing little ones how to spin joyfully and shout, “Best day ever!”
Disney Princess Breakfast Adventures will encourage youngsters to discover their own strengths and talents, and start each morning with a “can-do” attitude to never stop believing that anything is possible.
The morning concludes with a fond farewell photo opportunity and special treasures to remember this inspirational day.
