Four Fantastic In Park Breakfasts at Walt Disney World

When talking about Disney Dining there's often a big focus on what's for dinner, sometimes we tend to forget that there are other meals in the day. At heart, I'm a breakfast girl, and some of you out there may be as well, after all "they" say it's our most important meal. I love all sorts of breakfast foods, and with late nights at the park my family tends to sleep in and often we don't even get out of the room before 10:00am.

A Grown Up Princess Breakfast at Akershus

I love a good character meal, and over my last several trips to Walt Disney World I've made a point of trying a new one every time. In October I made reservations for the Princess Breakfast at Akershus in Epcot's Norway Pavilion. I must admit I was a little reluctant to book here because I'm not always the most adventurous eater, and the thought of Norwegian food made me a little nervous.

Disney's Coronado Springs Laguna Bar

The Coronado Springs Resort offers a breezy, outdoor lounge. Located near La Marina, the Laguna Bar is perfect for sipping a cocktail in the sultry summer evening and winding down next to the beautiful lake. The view here may be one of the prettiest of all Disney Bars.

Tipping on the Disney Dining Plan

Being on the Disney Dining Plan is a great way to reduce travel stress by pre-paying for your meals. It's important to remember though that the service tip for your waiter or waitress is NOT included in your dining plan costs and will still need to be left at the time of your meal. The old addage remains at Walt Disney World - Don't forget to tip your servers.

Seashore Sweets at Disney's Boardwalk Resort

Sitting prettily on the shoreline at Disney's Boardwalk Resort is a charming old-fashioned candy and ice cream shop. Seashore Sweets has counters and displays full of saltwater taffy, fudge and cookies that make it easy to find something to love. The real winner here though is the delicious hand dipped ice cream.
