Fuel Your Fun with Breakfast at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel

Earlier this month, my family visited from Wisconsin. We spent a long weekend in the parks, so in order to have energy to play all day we had to fuel up in the mornings. I’d like to share a few of my favorites with you.


If you are looking to try something new, Flying Fish Café at Disney’s BoardWalk is serving up breakfast until the new Trattoria al Forno opens (and dishes up some tasty breakfast eats). My favorite item on the menu is the waffle topped with tiramisu mascarpone—a must-try for any coffee lover. If you’re looking for something savory, I recommend the frittata with roasted red peppers, prosciutto, onions and potatoes topped with Pecorino Romano cheese.


I love Minnie, so I’ll take every chance I can get to dine with my favorite mouse. One of the best places to catch Minnie—along with a couple of her beach pals—is at the Beach Club Breakfast Buffet at Cape May Cafe at Disney’s Beach Club Resort. It’s a great place to load up on Mickey waffles, too.


Want to spend your day feeling practically perfect in every way? The Supercalifragilistic Breakfast at 1900 Park Fare is for you. From the famous strawberry soup to other signature items like lobster benedict and smoked salmon lox—this buffet has something for everyone. Some of your favorite storybook characters will even stop by while you enjoy breakfast.


My family stayed at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, the home of one of my favorite restaurants at Walt Disney World ResortBoma – Flavors of Africa. Traditional breakfast favorites like pancakes and omelets are accompanied by the gooey French toast bread pudding and items inspired by traditional African foods like turkey bobotie.

Say ‘Aloha!’ to Tonga Toast from Kona Café at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. One of my all-time favorites, this banana-stuffed sourdough French toast is rolled in cinnamon sugar and served with strawberry compote. Really hungry? Try the Big Kahuna, which consists of French toast, pancakes topped with pineapple sauce and macadamia nut butter, eggs, home-fried potatoes, ham, bacon, and sausage.

Just thinking about all these breakfast options makes me hungry! What’s your favorite way to fuel up before a day at the parks?


  • We’re taking our boys ( 10, 8, 4) to Disney for the first time. We are looking for a good character breakfast any suggestions?

  • The whipped cream at Cape May Cafe is soooo delicious!!!!!!

  • My husband is 64 yrs old, and every year we go to Disney, he always makes sure I have booked us a dining reservation at the “lilo and Stitch” breakfast, (as he calls it!) The food is great, but I think he just likes getting his picture taken with lilo!

    • ‘Ohana is a great place to start your day with a little character. Mahalo for sharing, Cynthia!

  • love The Supercalifragilistic Breakfast!!!! If you need a recipe idea to post I’d love that strawberry soup recipe!

    • I love it too! The recipe for Strawberry Soup from 1900 Park Fare can be found in the Delicious Disney cookbook. 🙂

  • Love Boma! Also we enjoyed Cape May Cafe on our trip last week. We also enjoy Akershus in Epcot for the food as much as the princesses.

    • I agree, Kim. There are so many outstanding options, you really can’t go wrong!

  • Even if we’re staying at an All-Star Resort, it’s worth the bus ride to the TTC and walking over to the Polynesian Village Resort just for the Tonga Toast! 🙂

    • Tonga Toast is always worth the trip!
