If you are staying at the Swan, you should not bother to look for another place to have breakfast. The Weekend Buffet is varied and well served, and you get a chance to meet some of Disney's characters.

The food was average, no special offerings. Price a bit high for kids as usual, if you have a kid who will eat a ton its worth it, otherwise not really. You will meet/greet with Pluto,Goofy, Chip N Dale.
