Thank you Sesame Place for hosting our trip. As usual, all opinions 100% my own.
During our little weekend getaway to Sesame Place, located just outside of Philadelphia, we had the opportunity to dine with every little ones favorite Sesame Street Character, ELMO!!! Abby Cadabby, Burt & Ernie also would be gracing us with their presence, so we were pretty stoked!!!! We named our puppy Abby Cadabby after all, so it’s safe to say we love our Sesame Street in this house!!!!
Dine With Me!
Dine With Elmo & Friends is located right inside the Sesame Place gates. You will need to purchase a theme park ticket to have this character dining experience. Since Sesame Place only does one seating for breakfast, you will want to arrive a little early. The line to be seated gets pretty long.
Before I get into all the details of this character breakfast experience, I will tell you what most of you are thinking. What is the cost?! Honestly, this is the best part! If you’ve been to Orlando, you know thosw parks charge and arm & a leg to meet their characters, Sesame Place on the other hand got it right! $27 for adults, $11 for kids and kids 2 and under are FREE! You won’t break the bank giving your kids their dream breakfast which is pretty sweet if you ask me!
Once the hostess seats you, you will wait for your table number to be called to head to the buffet. While
waiting and eating, all of the characters besides Elmo will make their rounds for photo opportunities. Elmo has his own little setup which you will have to wait in a short line to snap your photo. Also during the breakfast, the characters will have a dance party that your kiddos can participate in. Probably the most magical part of the whole experience. Total bragging rights saying you danced with Abby Cadabby & Elmo!!
Photographers will amake rounds snapping photos using their fancy professional cameras. I thought this was awesome since not all of us have someone to snap that family photo. This way EVERYONE is included in the shot. You will get one photo for free, which is included in the cost of breakfast and you can purchase additional photos if you want them all!
The food is exactly what you would expect. Basic breakfast foods like eggs, pancakes, bacon, sausage, cereal, etc.... nothing spectacular, but honestly the main focus of this breakfast is meeting your favorite Sesame Street characters. The food could have been cereal only and we still would have had the time of our lives chillen with Elmo!
Honestly, we loved everything about this character dining experience. The price was spot on, the breakfast lasted about an hour which is PERFECT!!! Just long enough to do everything and eat before hitting the park.
Food was perfect for picky eaters too. My daughter hates pretty much everything and she still managed to find something to eat thanks to the cereal, yogurt and fruit offerings!
Characters were super friendly and let you take as long as you needs to get that photo. Loved that we were not rushed at all. A huge plus!!!!
Only thing I didn’t care for was the chairs. They weren’t exactly the most comfy things in the world, but the theme is a school cafeteria, so theme-wise they work!
If if you’re heading to Sesame Place, I highly recommend Dine with Elmo & Friends! Your kids will talk about it forever!!!!
