Hungry in Main Street?

So, trying to decide what to do in today's post, I thought we could wander back over to Main Street, in Parc Disneyland, Paris, and have a look at somewhere to eat when you're feeling peckish.
The beautiful Plaza Gardens Restaurant sits at the top of Main Street USA, in a gorgeous location, and looking out towards the hub and le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant. At first glance, the style is similar to that of Crystal Palace in Magic Kingdom, Florida, but you can tell it is much more ornate. Clearly styled on Victorian buildings, it is a much more solid structure than that in Florida, but I imagine that would be due to the weather that Paris has.
Unfortunately, I wasn't lucky enough to dine here - there are only so many days in a trip and only so many dinners you can eat - but the theming of the restaurant is counter-service (all you can eat) amongst Victorian surroundings. While not the cheapest of eateries, the atmosphere in which you will be dining is luxurious, with high-backed chairs, silverware and table cloths. Certainly more high-scale than regular counter-service places in the Park.
Something that sounds fantastic, and I wish I had experienced, is the Disney character tea-time that you can experience. Occurring each late afternoon, you can enjoy lots of cakes, pastries, tea (of course!), all with some of your Disney friends. Hmm...do you think I could head over to the park for the weekend?
