Cape May CafĂ© at Disney’s Beach Club Resort is an incredibly popular Walt Disney World dining location for both breakfast and dinner. Cape May CafĂ© is a table service restaurant that evokes the feeling of dining along the Atlantic seashore. The white wooden accents, seashore murals, and intricate wave-like moldings bring you right to the shore. We can almost smell the fresh sea air.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, Cape May also offered Guests two incredible options of crab legs and lobster as part of the buffet. However, those options as part of your meal are no more. As you can see in the description, an extra fee will be added to the more popular seafood options. Crab legs will cost Guests $29.99 per pound, and Maine lobster will set you back $42 per pound. That will be in addition to the cost of the buffet — which is $25 per adult for breakfast and $42 per adult for dinner.

This change comes on the heels of Disney raising the prices of single and multi-day tickets at Walt Disney World. Disney has also raised the prices on a number of popular meals and snacks across the Resort. Costs have been steadily increasing, despite Guests saying that the quality of the food and the portion sizes have been decreasing.

Disney recently held a quarterly earnings call and reported that the company is not only bouncing back from their massive pandemic losses, but they are now reporting record profits. The Parks are also not the only area where Guests are seeing a price increase. Disney has also said that the cost of Disney+ will continue to increase as the company builds the library and releases new, original programming.
