Disney's Beach Club Resort


The buffet features peel-and-eat shrimp, tasty (albeit chewy) clams, mussels, snow-crab legs, fish of the day, hand-carved flank steak, barbecued ribs, chicken, corn on the cob, Caesar salad, and a good dessert bar. The kids' bar includes chicken nuggets and mac-and-cheese.


Cape May Café is one of the Disney restaurants whose quality and ratings have suffered most following the 2020 pandemic closure. Switching to family-style dining from a buffet was always going to be a challenge, and the kitchen may not be configured properly for this kind of dining. The buffet is back now, but there is a surcharge for crab legs, which used to be included. Entrées include a seafood boil with shrimp, clams, and mahi mahi, and there’s a “turf platter” with steak and chicken, but none of it is memorable. Better dining options include Ale & Compass (page 314) at Yacht Club and Trattoria al Forno at BoardWalk Inn.

Characters return on October 4, 2022, when Cape May Café Minnie’s Beach Bash Breakfast resumes operation.

Setting and Atmosphere

Just off the lobby at the Beach Club, Cape May Cafe features nautical New England decor in two dining rooms and lots of comfortable seating.
