I don’t know about you, but breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Nobody does breakfast like Disney, however—there are so many wonderful restaurants to choose from at the Walt Disney World Resort, and the majority of them serve a breakfast or brunch option! My favorite kind of meal is of course an all-you- can-eat-for-one-price menu, and Disney has plenty of those to choose from as well. Here are four of my favorite Walt Disney World restaurants that serve as much food as you can eat from either buffet or family-style menus!
1900 Park Fare
If you’re looking for a breakfast buffet that feels both fancy and fun, I’d absolutely recommend checking out 1900 Park Fare. Housed inside the main building at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, this character buffet provides a classier feel than the rest on this list (while still being absolutely family-friendly). Here, characters from Alice in Wonderland, Mary Poppins, and Winnie the Pooh join you while you enjoy tasty American breakfast fare like custom-made omelets, pastries, fruits, and meats.
A few stand-out options include the cheese blintzes topped with blueberry compote and red velvet pancakes with cream cheese frosting, along with the infamous Grand Floridian Strawberry Soup (I couldn’t get enough of this stuff—it was so rich and creamy and I had two bowls in addition to the rest of the great food!). 1900 Park Fare is a great option if you’re looking to dress up and enjoy delicious food with some lesser-seen characters!
Boma – Flavors of Africa
I first visited Boma at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge – Jambo House for my 21 st birthday on my first Disney College Program and it still remains one of my top picks for breakfast buffets at Walt Disney World. This restaurant serves typical American breakfast fare in addition to some more traditionally African and Mediterranean items. Those aspects are what make it stand out above other Disney breakfast options for me.
A few favorites include the African Fruit Fool—a delicious combination of tropical fruits and whipped cream that is more unique than the standard melon and berries you often see at buffets—and the sweet plaintains. There is also a delicious French toast bread pudding on the menu, in addition to a wider selection of meats and cheeses than a lot of the Disney breakfast buffets serve.
If you’re not a big fan of meat like me, there are also a few vegetarian protein options like quinoa and create-your-own yogurt. You certainly can’t beat enjoying a delicious breakfast just steps away
from giraffes and zebras!
Located in the Great Ceremonial House at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, ‘Ohana is a restaurant I’ve only ever heard people speak positively about. Although I have yet to try ‘Ohana’s dinner menu (which I’ve heard from multiple people is a must-do), I have had the pleasure of enjoying the breakfast there a few times. It is served family-style and your server will keep bringing trays of food until you’re too stuffed to continue.
‘Ohana serves traditional Disney breakfast fare like eggs, sausage, fruit, and waffles, but there are also a few items unique to the restaurant, like its pineapple-coconut bread, and island-style fried potatoes. This is also a character breakfast, and Mickey and friends, and Lilo and Stitch often join you for your meal. Everyone is made to feel like family at ‘Ohana, and they sure do feed you like family too!
Trail’s End Restaurant
Tucked away at the back of Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground is Trail’s End Restaurant, a delicious and relatively inexpensive buffet. The restaurant itself is fairly small and peaceful, and makes you feel like you’re dining in a log cabin in the forest, away from the hustle and bustle of civilization. As with the rest of the dining options on this list, you can find eggs, bacon, and Mickey waffles on the buffet at Trail’s End.
In addition to the standard breakfast options, a few “down-home cookin’” options are also offered, like biscuits and sausage gravy, cheese grits, and a country pork hash. There is also a wide selection of pastries offered, including everything from bagels and toast to blueberry and cornbread muffins. If you’re looking for a quiet, more remote place to enjoy breakfast that will please most everyone, I would highly recommend Trail’s End!
Those are my top 4 all-you- can-eat breakfast picks; however, I am always looking to try new options to check out so if you didn’t see your favorites on this list, let me know in the comments below!
