If I hadn't just pigged out on a burger I could have easily gone for the full size No Way Jose - it was sooooo yummy

Quick Bonus Picture!

Breakfast In The Virgin Atlantic Lounge - London Gatwick

Just to get in the full vacation mood I had a glass of Champagne with breakfast before our flight



If only every day could start this way

Boardwalk Bakery Breakfast

Saturday 8th October Part One

Partly due to my body clock still being on U.K time, today started off with a run around the Boardwalk which was just wonderful; what a great location to watch the sun rise

DH was still snoring away in bed (no problems with jet lag for him) so after I had showered I headed to the Boardwalk Bakery to re-fill our mugs and pick up some breakfast



There was no line inside the bakery; it didn’t seem to get busy until around 8.30am so for all you early risers you shouldn’t have too much time to wait

Right, decisions, decisions



I swear that just breathing in the aroma inside the bakery could make you go up a dress size but hey I have just been for a run so let’s forget about any healthy breakfast options

I picked up a couple of treats and headed back to the villa to wake sleepy head and enjoy breakfast on the balcony



I opted for this delicious beauty



Cheese Danish

Oh this was divine, really fresh and not too sweet. It was just perfect with my not so perfect Disney “coffee”

I couldn’t resist getting this for DH



Mickey Cake

I managed to steal just a mouthful for research purposes before he devoured the whole thing; the chocolate frosting was amazing and the white cake inside was wonderfully light and fluffy with specks of red and green food colouring running through it …Mmm calories and e-numbers

Full of sugar and ready to go we decided to head over to Epcot for our first morning and breakfast number two!

Coming up ……….. Sunshine Seasons

Looking forward to your review of the Wild Africa Trek food! We did the tour a couple of weeks ago and loved it and curious to see of what others think!
Love your reviews so far~

Count me in. Great start! We noticed the same thing about the Boardwalk Bakery on our last trip. No problems in the early morning, but if you wanted something right around peak breakfast time the line was Seemed to move quickly, but still a scary sight first thing in the a.m.

Boardwalk Bakery is the one place we never ended up getting to experience. What a way to start your first day

That Mickey cake looks yummy and if you can't enjoy calories and e-numbers whilst on vacation when can you?

Reading your report and seeing the photos just makes me wish I was there (eating it all!!!)

What a view from your balcony - were you in a studio?

I am usually up at first light in the mornings so didn't have a problem with lines but I have heard that the lines can stretch down the Boardwalk at peak times

It was a perfect location, especially with Food & Wine taking place at Epcot and we loved the walk to DHS

Yep, we had a studio and the view was wonderful
It was a lovely quite location and was the first room down the hall from the elevators
When we came down in the morning you came out right by the pool and the Boardwalk - perfect

Sunshine Seasons & The Land

Saturday 8th October Part Two

Now anyone who was anywhere near WDW on Saturday October 8th will know that following the early morning sunrise it started to rain, and it rained and it rained and it rained some more but hey, we are British; we are well used to the rain

We put on our ever so stylish white garbage bags, I mean ponchos, and took the short walk from the Boardwalk Villas to Epcot’s International Gateway

After a soggy hour or so running around Future World we decided we needed to dry off a little and grab a bite to eat so we headed to Sunshine Seasons in The Land

DH decided he wanted to try the breakfast platter



Adult Breakfast platter - Bacon, Eggs, Sausage, French Toast, Potatoes and a Biscuit

His verdict was that the eggs, sausage and French toast were all great but the bacon was horrible (no change there then) and he thought that the biscuit was far too salty, I can’t remember what he said about the potatoes but he did finish them all

He also grabbed a coke and I loved the Halloween cups



I wasn’t terribly hungry but really wanted to try this:



Croissant Berry Pudding

This was delicious but unfortunately by the time we had paid and found a table it wasn’t very hot, it was yummy all the same and a nice little breakfast option

After breakfast we headed off to check in for our Behind The Seeds Tour and as this is a dining review I will include a picture of my next little snack on the tour



The Land Cucumber

So there you have it, not only have I been for a run this morning but I have also eaten something green, I am just so virtuous

Coming Up Next - Some Food & Wine Festival Snacks

Bless you two for braving that downpour at Epcot! We were at DHS and I said many times that it's a great park for a rainy day, as most every attraction is indoors! Of course, it was still miserable, but as we all know, a miserable rainy day in Disney is better than a sunny day in work!!

Can't wait to see what you tried at the food booths. And how you did it in the pouring rain!!!

I was down in the mouth about the rain for about 10 minutes and then I thought back to how many raining mornings I had spent stuck in a London traffic jam .......... I know where I would rather be

We were soaked when we got back to the Boardwalk, thank goodness we were so close to "home"

We ate our food in Epcot especially quickly; otherwise every dish would have quickly become "soup of the day"
