My family wouldn't go for just cereal/oatmeal/bread/pastry either for breakfast. PB&J on a bagel would be okay for a day or two, but not all week, and I don't think I could convince them to eat string cheese for their protein every day either.
I do like some of the frozen options people have mentioned if you have access to a freezer--however I don't think that the non-DVC Disney rooms really have one other than maybe a little section of the fridge that is a freezer...but I haven't had the best of luck with those things. Tried to put ice cream in there once and it melted all over.
We either stay at a hotel that provides a full breakfast buffet or at a timeshare where we can make our own hot breakfast. Maybe my family is spoiled, but either my husband and I will make eggs and a breakfast meat nearly every morning.
We need protein for an active day as well, but we also are in-room breakfast eaters. Our solution is cured meats. As long as we have a mini-fridge or cooler available to keep them relatively cool, we are fine. We just sort of snack the protein out of hand; eating a ham sandwich or a few pieces of salami on crackers, along with the treat of a muffin or a danish or a bowl of cereal with milk. I'm also a snob re: not-from-concentrate OJ; so I also need some way to keep that cool along with the milk.
Essentially, it isn't necessary to cook in order to get protein in a breakfast; you can do it with a bit of out-of-the-box thinking.
