Breakfast at Disney

I am planning my next trip to Disney in September and I need some ideas for where to eat breakfast. We will be staying at the Wilderness Lodge this trip.

Last October we had breakfast at Boma (4 adults) and loved it...so Boma gets my vote. clapping

You can have a lot of fun for breakfast right there at Wilderness Lodge at the Whispering Canyon Cafe. Or O'Hanna in the Polynesian resort, just two of many.

I will throw 2 votes in for Kona Cafe at The Polynesian & Grand Floridian Cafe at the Grand Floridian.

Kona is my favorite. Olivia's is good, too.

I am leaning towards the Kona cafe we ate there a few years ago and it was very good. I also think it would be fun to eat at the Grand Floridian Cafe because we have never explored that resort. We love the Wave but I think it's time we branched out. Thanks for all the great ideas.

wink We really like the breakfast at the Tusker House in Animal Kingdom. Book an early reservation and get in line then for the Animal Safari. Lots of animals are out then. Mickey, Goofy, Minnie, Donald and Daisy come to all of the tables too all dressed in their Safari clothes. Awesome food too. and a lot of buffet choices. Tooo many to choose from.

Tusker House is also where all the tour groups go also, so beware. You can get the exact same food but without the tour groups and characters at Boma.

I was thinking about Tusker house but had heard the warning about the tour group problem and also that it is fairly noisy. I would like to try Boma but we never rent a car when we are at Disney and only use in house transportation. Is it hard to get from Wilderness to Animal Kingdom Lodge? I resort hop to the ones close to where we are staying but never venture farther than that.

I'm partial to breakfast at Boardwalk Bakery. I like to take my coffee and croissant and find a table on the boards. The beautiful Yacht Club and Beach Club in the distance across Crescent Lake. The majestic Swan and Dolphin to the left. Friendship boats going to and fro creating gentle ripples on the water. Watching families and couples heading to the parks full of life and love. The laugh of a child. While I contemplate the days plans or nurse a hangover from the previous night's revelries.

'Ohana is my first choice, but only if you're interested in a character meal. It's not overly character-y, and the food is good!

Getting to AKL isn't hard, you can either take a taxi or just go to whatever park is closest and hop the bus over there, then repeat the process at the end to get you back to WL.

Olivia's is good for made-to-order table-service. Cape May Cafe has an awesome buffet.

It doesn't get a lot of press, but I really enjoyed the food at 1900 Park Fare. It's a buffet, so it depends if you're into that or not. It's also a character breakfast (Alice, Mary Poppins, Mad Hatter, Pooh, Tigger) and the dining room is a little bit noisy and sort of...ordinary relative the rest of Grand Floridian. If you're into the characters there, it's one of the less expensive character meals. If you're not into characters at all, it's a bit pricy for breakfast--I'm thinking it was $60ish for the two of us with tax & gratuity?

I love Whispering Canyon for Breakfast, Kona too! Akershus is yummy in Epcot, and Cape May Cafe is my favorite Character Breakfast. I've been watching a friend post awesome pictures from breakfast at Kouzzina all week that look delish!

Boardwalk Bakery also has some high fiber muffins, so there's that.

High fiber is a must for long vacations...

Love the Boardwalk bakery and Kona cafe for breakfast. Trying out the Grand Floridian Cafe on our upcoming trip - mrhub's pictures made us want to go there.
