In-Room Breakfast - Straight From The Suitcase?

Do you ever pack a few things in your bag (or have delivered to your room) a few things to eat a quick breakfast in-room before you head out for a day at the Park?

What do you pack? Bagels, granola bars, peanut butter? Share your ideas for the best in room breakfasts with me!

DH loves strawberry pop tarts. I like breakfast bars from Quaker.

We almost always bring breakfast from home to eat in the room or take with us to our first park. DH loves Pepperidge farms chocolate turnovers, so I usually throw a few in the oven the night before we leave. I usually take Kellogg's cereal bars for my breakfast. We always bring our own coffee pot too because there isn't enough pixie dust in all of Disney world to deal with me if I don't have a large cup of espresso every morning. laugh

I do Oatmeal for breakfast. Wouldn't work as well at value resorts because you have to go to the food court to use the microwave. I also pack granola bars, nuts, and usually some sort of cheesy cracker or other salty snack. I steer clear off chocolate because of the melting factor.

One time I even lined my suitcase with plastic and packed about a dozen bottles of water in my checked bag. Bad news--it caused my bag to be "randomly" selected for screening. But my water arrived in tact and I had plenty of souvenir space. You have to be super careful with this because you can make your suitcase overweight in a hurry!

As mentioned in my pre-trip, I;m trying Amazon Prime Pantry for a water and snack delivery this time. I'll let you know how it works out.

Granola bars and crackers is our go-to. I love the Lance Captain Wafers Peanut Butter and Honey crackers, Joe and Blondie will eat most any combo. Blondie get's her chocolate sneaked in with the Quaker Chewy Chocolate Chip Granola Bars.

Of course we take chips, popcorn and drinks also. I have to have my Mt Dew fix so those always come with us.

I went to Walmart and bought things for exactly that. I'm not a huge breakfast fan and never eat as soon as I get up. I loved my booked breakfasts but was up for at least an hour 1st.

Suitcase breakfasts were Twinkie (just because of the sheer novelty value), I also got some snack packs or the single serving cereal pots which I prefer dry as I am not a huge milk fan unless it's in a shake or tea.

We have never had breakfast at WDW and always bring "breakfast" foods with us. This time I grabbed some pop tarts and the single serve cereal bowls. I'm with Brinbunny and eat my cereal dry. It takes up space in the suitcase but then leaves room for souvenirs. We like to ability to get up, get ready and leave the room while snaking on our breakfast. Plus they tend to be foods we don't eat on a regular basis and are reserved for "treats".

I'll be in a DVC Deluxe Studio, so I'll have a kitchenette in the room, plus I only have two mornings.

I'm thinking I could get individual packs of peanut butter, a two bagels, and a fruit leather. I could make little pre-portioned ziploc baggies for breakfast. I always do that for coffee anyhow. Oatmeal is a great idea too! There's a pre-packed quaker one I like that would be easy.

I'm liking this idea! it will let me be more extravagant with meals later in the day. clapping

I also like the idea that you can eat and go, or eat while going... To the bus. It gives more park time biggrin bagels would be good for that.

LOL! That idea just gave me an extra half hour to sleep, and sleep will be in short supply on my May trip. wink

That's why I don't eat breakfast at home hahaha! The only time I will tolerate mornings is if I'm on holiday awesome

That's also why I'm trying to convince my mum that we need some suitcase breakfasts in May - most days start at 7am and on the day we have paid for breakfast it's going to be served at 5am eek so we can watch the sunrise over the Grand Canyon.

We always pack breakfast items to bring with. We pack muffins, granola bars, or poptarts for us and oatmeal, applesauce, and fruit cups for Penny.

Granola bars. I carry one to the bus stop and either eat while waiting for the bus or eat after I get to the park.

We find it more convenient to just grab something in the park for breakfast. I take granola bars to work. When at Disney, I eat out.

We usually eat breakfast and dinner when we are away. This year we are planning on eating breakfast in the room just to save some time and money. Has anyone used Amazon Pantry?
