Ariel's Grotto offers a chance to dine with Ariel and her princess friends at breaktast and lunch. While the exact group of characters may change from day-to-day, you have a good chance of also meeting Snow White, Cinderella, Belle, and Aurora.
After experimenting with both character and non-character dinners, the restaurant will once again send the Princesses back to Fantasyland after lunch, and offer a character-free dining experience at night starting September 8.
The restaurant serves a fixed-price, three-course menu. Regular (non-alcoholic) drinks are included.
Menu as of June, 2012
As with all character meals, each person in your party ages 3 and older is included in the check, even if they do not eat. Price listed below includes tax and 15% gratuity. The gratuity rate is increased to 18% for parties of 8 or more, so prices will be slightly higher than listed below. Prices are slightly lower if you book a table on the lower-level patio, instead of inside the restaurant's dining room.
Breakfast Fixed Price Three-Course Meal
From the Disney website: " Guests joining us for breakfast will share a tiered platter of continental breakfast items—fruit, cold cuts, pastries and more—followed by a family-style breakfast platter of eggs, potatoes, sausage, bacon and waffles."
