The last trip to Disney World included dinning at a few restaurants that we’ve never been, as it should be! As dutiful Disney Addicts, we made our reservations online prior to the trip. Although, while the there, we made some adjustments using the very handy My Disney Experience App.
The ratings will not be by value, let’s face it, everything, especially food, is expensive. If you want to save money while in Disney World, use your Disney Chase Credit Card, DVC or Annual Pass membership, all give 10% discount if participating store or restaurant. Also, we did not do a Dining Plan, I do not see the value in it, i anything it almost forces you to eat more!
Let’s breakdown the review by meals and keep it short and sweet. Lunch and Dinner Reviews in a separate post, look for them in a few days!
- The Grand Floridian Cafe: We arrived in Orlando very early and of course was very hungry. We headed to the Grand Floridian Cafe. This was a nice breakfast, complete with carafe of coffee on the table (which was desperately needed). My daughter devoured her Vanilla-laced French Toast, which of course I had to taste. It was fabulous. My husband had the Lobster Eggs Benedict, now did you ever have that dish? He loved it as well.

- Be Our Guest-Magic Kingdom: Yes, they serve breakfast (and lunch) as quick service meals. What is nice about breakfast and lunch, you get to choose the room you eat in (if you can find a table). We are lucky enough to say we ate in all 3 rooms. The West Wing room, albeit very dark, is the best we feel. The breakfast was nothing special, but we were looking forward to the ‘assorted pastries’, the server almost forgot to serve. The were nothing ‘special’. The ambiance is what rates for breakfast here, but I would save my reservation for dinner next time.

- 1900 Park Fare-The Grand Floridian Resort: This may be biased, since we stayed there and it is our DVC home-base, but this character, buffet breakfast was terrific! They had everything on the buffet, including Mickey Waffles! There was fresh fruit, an omelette bar and strawberry soup (which I raved about and the server gave me the recipe on a lovely laminated card). The best was southern favorites of biscuits and gravy and of course cheese grits! The server kept our fresh orange/nectarine juice flowing while we were visited by Mary Poppins, Alice and the Mad Hatter, Tigger and Winnie the Pooh. It was a Supercalifragilistic breakfast! For Disney Character seekers, a must!

Don’t forget to look for the Lunch and Dinner Reviews, as we did eat lunch and dinner at some of the same places as breakfast.
Until next time….Have a Magical Day!
