Breakfast?

I go in phases with breakfast at WDW. For a while I brough nutri-grain bars and ate them on the way to the parks, then I started booking ADRs for breakfast at different restaurants because it's the cheapest meal and usually least crowded meal.

I've stayed at several resorts where it seems like breakfast is hard to come by. Anyone found any good breakfast options in wdw?

Boma at the AKL is AWESOME for breakfast! They have an amazing buffet there and the price is reasonable. I highly recommend it!

I second that! I've had breakfast at Boma twice now and I really enjoy it. It's pretty much "typical breakfast" items, but it's just such a relaxing atmosphere and never very crowded. awesome

I had a bad experience in Epcot when I'd gone for extra magic hour, was starving around 9:30am, and couldn't find any food unless I trekked back into the Land and got breakfast there. Seems crazy that so few places sell breakfast things in Epcot.

Always a bummer that World Showcase opens so late.

Hi,

I agree with wdwfan that Boma is an awesome breakfast. Try the juice blend there called "frunch". It's very similar to the POG (a blend of passion fruit, orange, and guava juices) served at the Kona Cafe at the Polynesian resort. The Kona Cafe is said to serve excellent coffee, and its Tonga Toast is legendary. Of course, I would be remiss if I omitted the Sweet Potato Pancakes at Boatwright's Dining Hall at Port Orleans Riverside. Yum!

Thanks, everyone! I just wish there were a few more grab-and-go options...

Don't most (all?) WDW resorts have that grab-and-go option?

Since we normally stay either at Saratoga Spring or Old Key West, our normal places to have breakfast would be at those two (Artist Palette at SSR, and the outdoor counter service that I forgot the name of at OKW). They serve your typical breakfast thingy.

However, we tend to try to save money by going to a grocery store and buying breakfast when we're there. Since our DVC unit has a refrigerator, we tend to buy milk, yogurt, cereal, fruits, etc., and have those for breakfast, instead of spending money for a counter or sit-down service. Only on some occassion would we go for sit-down breakfast (we tried Donald Breakfastosaurus before it closed, a couple of times at Chef Mickey, and the breakfast buffet at the Beach Club).

BTW, we have had good stuff at the Staring Roll at DHS. They have pastries and bagels with cream cheese and lox. So if you want a grab-and-go, this would be the place at DHS that I would recommend.

Starring Rolls seems like a good suggestion. Sometimes I like to buy a box of Pop-Tarts to start the day (Brown Sugar & Cinnamon are the best), but usually I don't plan that well so sometimes it's nice to grab a breakfast. Usually though we have an early lunch or a breakfast buffet planned, due to my penchant for eating!

Just get an early lunch! I'm always too full from the night before anyway!

Zz, I'd love to hear a review of Artist Palette at SSR. And if you've been to the new table service restaurant there, that'd be great, too.

I have Bali, and they are pretty good. In fact, next month we plan on walking over there from POR to get them on at least one occasion.

We usually plan one sit-down (usually character) meal per trip. This time it'll be 1900 Park Faire at GF. Other days we'll do a 'grab-n-go' breakfast, this time it'll mainly be at Riverside Mill, since we're staying at POR.

I second those who suggest Boma. While there are not as many authentic African dishes on the breakfast menu as there are for lunch and dinner, you can't beat the atmosphere, and yes, that "Frunch" is delicious.

I'm really interested in how you like this. I haven't been to that character meal yet, but have heard great things. mickey

I have been once before, way back in the Stone Age of 1995! laugh

We'll be sure to report on our experience there. From what I hear, it's pretty consistent so I'm not even sure how much it's changed from when I was there last. The space itself is beautiful and you can never have too many reasons to visit the Grand Floridian. mickey
