    Let me be the first to say it; I think someone at WDW has lost their mind! What happened to the good ol’ days when the brunch for Mother’s Day was just, a very reasonable $50/pp or so? Each year it has continued to go up, then last year, if I’m not mistaken they skipped it. So this year, they decided to make up for it by charging for two years worth of meals? I love the Mouse, I love the Mother’s Day Brunch, but $400 for my little family? I think I’ll go have a fab-o meal at Victoria and Albert’s, The Brown Derby, or Le Cellier. For that price we can order the whole menu.

    I’ve been in WDW the last two mother’s days in a row and the crowds were so low. I loved it. I guess not every mom wants to spend MD on Tower of Terror? Their loss!

    AJ, Thanks to your suggestion, I’ll be spending my first Mother’s Day at the Garden View Tea Room at the Grand Floridian. I can’t wait!

  4. says

    Lori — Great point. This IS pricey — and it’s apparently only for Tables in Wonderland members. (I’d love to see that Living Seas Salon, though!)

    Chris — I agree — usually early May is a good time to visit. And I’d be happy to spend MD on ToT! I’m with you!

    Jennifer — YAY!! I was hoping you’d see this post, but I’m SO glad you chose to go to the Tea Room. You guys are going to have a lovely and civilized time ;-D
