You can enjoy breakfast with Santa this holiday season at Maria & Enzo’s Ristorante in Disney Springs. I found this out while wandering around Disney Springs and saw a sign showcasing the event. I was surprised because I had no idea that they did this. Naturally, I walked into the restaurant to ask about the event, and that is when I found they had also decorated the area for Christmas. The cast member took me inside the main dining hall to show me how they enhanced the space, and I thought they did a decent job.
Anyway, let’s take a look at what this dining experience entails.
Join Santa and his elves throughout the holiday season at Maria & Enzo’s during their Breakfast with Santa experience in the Most Magical Place on Earth. Guests are invited to feast on a decadent family-style spread in the grand dining room. Fill up on signature gourmet menu offerings with sweet and savory options to please every palate. Adults (21+) will enjoy a complimentary Prosecco mimosa while little ones enjoy take-home treats.Maria & Enzo’s Website
After guests finish their breakfast, they will be walked over to meet the one and only Santa Claus and receive a keepsake photo from the treasured meet and greet. It is important to note that where you sit determines when you will meet Santa.
Platinum and gold seating categories are available for the Breakfast with Santa packages. Seating category determines table location as well as the order in which guests meet Santa. Platinum ticket holders will receive priority seating at tables with the best sweeping views of Lake Buena Vista and will be first in line to see Santa.Maria & Enzo’s Website
The view from the massive windows is gorgeous, so if you enjoy eating with a view, I suggest trying to get the platinum seating category. Now that we have those details let’s look at the pricing.
Pricing will vary by seating category, date, and time, beginning at $30 for children and $50 for adults plus tax and gratuity. There is no charge for children that are two and under to attend. Each breakfast experience is an hour and a half long.Maria & Enzo’s Website
Here is what is included in this hour-and-a-half-long dining experience.
- A delightful family-style Italian breakfast feast (view menu)
- Meet & greet with Santa and his elves
- Family photo with Santa Claus
- Takeaway treats for the kids

Breakfast with Santa will occur on November 26 and 27 and on December 3, 4, 10, 11, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21,22,23, and 24. This year there is only one seating for this event, but I hope they offer two seating times next year so more guests can participate in this fun experience.
I am curious if any of you reading would do this with your families or friends. Let us know in the comments why or why not.
