My husband and I are not big breakfast eaters. We also like to sleep in on vacation, until at least 10am. That being said, we would love to try just one breakfast - the best breakfast in Disney!

I can't decide between all of them, the two that stand out to me are Boma and 1900 Park Fare. Boma because of the food - we ate there for dinner last time and it was one of the best meals of the trip; 1900 Park Fare mainly for character interaction (the Mad Hatter sounds awesome!).

Help us decide, either between those two or another, we're not picky, we're on the DxDP and we would really just like to eat somewhere at about 10:30am - and we really want that place to be as delicious as possible, since it'll be our only breakfast in the world!!

So: Where is the best breakfast in Disney?? :scratchin

IMO, the best breakfast at WDW is DEFINITELY Crystal Palace in the MK.

Here's why:

-You can make an early ADR & get to the park before park opening. Take some great pictures of an empty Main Street and castle.
-Winnie the Pooh characters are terrific!
-Beautiful restaurant and great service
-Best food!! Pooh's Breakfast Lasagna, Breakfast Pizza, honey yogurt & a ton of great toppings, bagels & a ton of bagel toppings, grits, fritattas and other egg dishes, breakfast meats, puffed french toast, muffins, chocolate croissants, great fresh fruit, cereals, etc, etc, etc!!

We are not big breakfast people but we did enjoy BOMA on our last trip. It was FANTASTIC! We will never go anywhere else for breakfast.:thumbsup2

We love Crystal Palace... into the park early and fantastic food.

We're branching out this year though, and adding a breakfast at Boma. So many great reviews, we just have to try it.

Kona Cafe at the Poly!! Pinaeapple macadamia nut pancakes! Yum! The coffee is great, too. :)

Just did Boma for breakfast this morning.
Best breakfast I've had a Disney. We usually just do breakfast in our room, but once a trip go out.
This will be our new "must do" every trip!!

I'll add another vote for Boma! Definitely my favorite breakfast, and a good value too, IMO. Since it isn't a character meal, it's quite a bit less than the other buffets, and the food is awesome! They have the best juice ever!

Wow! That is going to be delicious! We just booked an 8:10 ressie....i was wondering about that though...do you just go to the gate and tell them you have a reservation at crystal palace? do you have to show them something to prove it? and what if we get done and the park isn't open yet (not likely to happen, but still...)? can we still walk around? :confused3

We eat a table service breakfast on property almost every day of our vacation. We eat as soon as the restaurant opens most days and then go straight to the parks from there. (We skip lunch or split something light.) Our favorites in order are:

1. Boma
2. Whispering Canyon Cafe
3. Kona/ Boatwrights
4. Crystal Palace
5. Wolfgang Puck Express

There is a special gate that you go through to enter (and pass everyone waiting to get in). :thumbsup2

You may need your ADR number, but we just told them our name and reservation time, the gate attendant looked at something and let us in.

If you finish before the park "opens" you can go in the stores or wait at one of the "lands" for a rope drop. We did it at Tommorrowland, they had a countdown and walked us over to Buzz with zero line. You can also get some great shots when you arrive of an empty Main St USA. My brother and I were one of the first few people let in a few trips back and we RAN down the street toward the castle. We have a picture of each of us with NO ONE else in front of the castle. Very cool.

I think the other poster noting CP forgot (or didn't know) one of my favorites. Pancakes are made pretty much to order at this breakfast, so they are so fresh. Ask the pancake maker to throw in some chocolate chips for you!!! YUMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!! ::yes::

Getting to the parks before they open sounds cool, but my husband and I really do enjoy sleeping in until at least 10am, so we would want breakfast ressies for later in the day.

Where is a great place to go, where it will still be good at the latest possible ressie time (10:30-11am)?

Boma sounds delicious, Crystal Palace sounds lovely, but we did both of these last year for dinner and we might like to try something new.

I'm getting that Cape May or Chef Mickey's is the place to go? How come no votes for 1900 PF? Is it just that bad?

I need help!! f:confused3

We did 1900 Park Fare for dinner on our trip a couple of weeks ago and it was just horrible. I won't try it until DD is older and expresses and interest in the characters.

We did Chef Mickey's for breakfast on our trip and we all loved it. There was a great selection of food and the characters were great! Where we were seated we also had a really nice view of the castle. This has become a must do for us on all our future trips!

1900 Park Fare was our favorite breakfast until our last trip when we went to Tuskar House. 1900 Park Fare made my list because they had made to order omlets, thier famous strawberry soup and bread pudding. The characters were fantastic, but I'm also a huge Alice and Mad Hatter fan. My kids loved Winnie the Pooh and Tigger.

Tuskar House for breakfast was awesome. They had the traditional items (eggs, mickey waffles, etc), put also African-inspired foods that I didn't know what they were, but they were sooo good. I remember the breads being interesting (in a good way) and the juice absolutely yummy. The characters were dressed in safari garb which I loved. It was a really great experience. I'll also mention that I was in a very bad mood before we went in to eat (long story), but I actually left apologizing for complaining earlier and praising them for the meal.

We have not been to Boma for breakfast (only dinner which I liked), but we have been to Chef Mickey's for breakfast. CM at breakfast was okay (food was good but mostly the standard breakfast items), but I liked the others much better. I have been to 1900 Park Fare for dinner as well and prefer its breakfast much more.

Also remember Chef Mickey's is very noisy and chaotic. The food is pretty good but I thought it was like eating in a very busy airport food court.
We always like O'Hana at the Polynesian because every time we've eaten there, the food was awesome. We are not into Lilo & Stitch, though, so the characters were secondary.
The best part about booking a late breakfast (anywhere) is that the place clears out fast and you can get a lot of time with the characters.

I agree!!! IMO, much better than 1900 Park Fare! By the way, breakfast at CP is much better than dinner.

On the deluxe plan I would suggest the Grand Floridian Cafe for the lobster eggs benedict.

If you not using credits I would suggest Kona Cafe.

I have a breakfast questions I need some help with. One of my husband's favorite foods in Disney is the breakfast potatoes at Crystal Palace. He wants to eat there on our upcoming trip and my kids want to eat at Chef Mickey's. We've been to both, but I can't remember if the potatoes offered at Crystal Palace are also offered at Chef Mickey's. I can only book one of the two so I am trying to please my husband and the kids. Does anyone have an answer to my potato question????

Crystal Palace is a must for us and I also love the potatoes (in fact, we love the whole breakfast). We will be having breakfast at Chef Mickey's on our next trip as well as Crystal Palace. From what I have read, it is not rated as good as CP - we'll see!!!:goodvibes

I second that! I've had dinner at CP twice and I didn't care for it either time. However, I've had Breakfast at CP 2 or 3 times a trip for probably 9 or 10 trips in a row. DH wanted to try something different the last 2 trips and so we went to 1900 Park Fare. It's good there, but not great. The bread pudding at Park Fare delicious, but I enjoy the breakfast lasagna and the french toast puffs so much more at CP. Next trip we will definitely be switching back to CP.

Let me also throw in another vote for Kona! We went there for the first time in August and we loved it! This is now a must do for us every trip!

I admit I've never dined at Boma, so I've very intrigued! But I'm surprised more people haven't mentioned OHana! It's a simple meal (but abundant), but omg, it's delicious-I don't know what the CP potatoes are like, but we still talk about the OHana potatoes at least once a week. They are to die for!!! It's not a buffet, so it's a more low-key experience, and so a nice balance to the other character breakfasts. My fav buffet would also be Tusker House... the shear variety of choices is astounding and everything we tried was delicious!

I've done both 1900 PF and Cape May. While the food was good at 1900 and the Hatter is a hoot as you suspected, I think Cape May wins hands down. 1900 tends to be a little crowded due to a much smaller space than CApe May. While there is good character interaction at Cape MAy it seems to be much more relaxing and certainly feels less crowded.

We do late breakfasts as well some times and find CM to be the best for that purpose. Its usually our must do ADR for our first breakfast.

Having said that, we have yet to try BOma. Food looks great but just haven't made it yet. Its on our list for next trip.

Seconding the suggestion of the Grand Floridian Cafe. My father declared their lobster eggs benedict the best breakfast he had ever had. We also really enjoyed 1900 Park Fare; the character interaction was tops!

In my opinion you can't miss Cape May Cafe at BC. It is my absolute favorite by far! The atmosphere is fantastic bc of characters as well as the set up is nice and kinda spread out so it is relaxing and not crazy. Also the food is brought out fresh continuously and the staff is top notch everytime!

After all the great things I have heard about Kona for breakfast (and getting a look at the Tonga Toast), I just changed one of my breakfast meals to Kona!!! We've been for dinner (not my favorite), but I can't wait to try breakfast.
