Breakfast in rooms

What do you bring to eat for breakfast in mornings in a standard room?

As long as you have at least a fridge, you could do cereal and milk (either take a couple of plastic bowls or get some disposable ones), yogurt with granola and fruit, or store bought muffins.

We are planning to eat breakfast in our room as well and this is what we'll be doing.

We ate in our room and in the food court with food we brought along. We had the free quick service dining plan so we saved our 2 meals for lunch and dinner. Foods we brought along: poptarts, cereal bars, donuts and fruit. We also took oatmeal and made it using the hot water in the food court on the way to the parks. Plus then we could have our drinks with our souveneir mugs.

Bagels, muffins, pop tarts, cereal (my kids don't like it with milk so it doesn't matter if we've had a fridge or not), PB&J sandwiches, cereal/granola bars, fruit.

We're planning to order a few breakfast things from garden grocers. My plan is to grab a pack of little muffins or pop tart, a banana and a juice box on our way out of the door to the ME bus stop. Then we'll sit at the bus stop (or on the bus if we're lucky)and enjoy our breakfast.

We are planning on placing an order with Green Grocer for our trip. Our order thus far will include some yogurt, muffins, cereal, fresh fruit, and a case of water. We have the dining plan, but none of us typically eat a large breakfast.

I always bring a suitcase with breakfast foods and snacks. For breakfast I bring: bread, bagels, 2 boxes of cereal, oatmeal packets, granola bars, peanut butter, jelly, coffee, tea, fruit. When I get to the resort I buy some butter, cream cheese and milk. I can also do some lunches or late night snacks by making pbj sandwiches or putting pb on a bagel. It's nice to save money, but time also because I give my kids breakfast and then hop in the shower and get ready for the day.

We brought bagels, english muffins, peanut butter, donuts, granola bars and cereal. We toasted our bagels and english muffins in the food court and bought milk each day since our in-room fridge just didn't keep it cold enough for our tastes.

Personally, for breakfast, we will be bringing along some fruit, homemade waffles, turkey sausage, bagels + cream cheese + lox. For later in the day (or evening) and for while at the park, we will bring various snacks (PB&J stuff, homemade cookies, chips, homemade trail mix, fruit snacks, granola bars). We have a big cooler that I plan to pack up for our trip (we are driving). I figure it's best to serve something substantial for breakfast so there is no mid-morning crash.

Here are some other ideas for anyone to steal

Super easy breakfast ideas (and not entirely healthy):
  • Cereal and milk (if you want to go super easy, you can get the little boxes...kids love them!)......don't forget bowls and spoons!
  • Pop tarts
  • Sides of fruit (pre-cut fruit from the grocery store, apples, oranges, pears, bananas)

Healthier breakfast ideas that will take some work on your part:
  • Homemade waffles (I make mine with 1/2 regular flour and 1/2 whole wheat), refrigerated and then brought in the cooler in the car
  • Homemade muffins (again made with 1/2 all purpose flour and 1/2 whole wheat)...any kind, but I especially like blueberry, apple cinnamon and banana oat
  • Homemade quiche, sliced and warmed in the microwave
  • Bagels and cream cheese....warm in the microwave if desired. My dh loves lox so I bring some and stick it in the fridge....adds some healthy meat to the meal!
  • Yogurt with granola and fresh fruit. I like to use plain Greek yogurt as it isn't loaded with sugar and it has a ton of protein. I pre-bag up some granola in zip-loc baggies and just add as desired.
  • Microwaveable frozen egg meals, but this requires an in-room freezer that's not tiny
  • Oatmeal packets (use hot water from the coffee machine
  • Meat sides: microwaved eggs, precooked sausage (we use turkey) heated in the microwave
  • Fruit sides: berries (we buy some at a local grocery store and keep them in the package....wash and chop if necessary when serving it), pre-chopped melon or mangoes, etc.

Snack foods for anytime
  • Granola bars
  • Fruit
  • Beef jerky
  • Bread (for sandwiches)
  • Peanut butter and jelly
  • Sandwich makings (sliced deli meat; sliced cheese; mayo/mustard packets from a gas station; pre-washed and bagged lettuce, onions and tomatoes). The deli meat and cheese are perfect for snacking on too, especially for kids!
  • Cheese sticks
  • Crackers (can top with the sliced cheese, deli meat or peanut butter)
  • Trail mix (either homemade or store bought)
  • Typical junk food snacks (cookies...homemade or store bought, rice crispy treats, fruit snacks, chips, candy)

We ordered from Garden Grocer and our breakfast items were:
yogurt, bananas, bagels and cream cheese, easily portable if necessary (to eat on the way or to bring into the parks), as well as cereal and milk.

We used to take a car service and make a grocery stop, now that we take the Magical Express we order from Garden Grocer. For breakfast items we get cereal, milk, orange juice, bananas, yogurt, bagels, muffins and occasionally donuts. I'll also sometimes pick up some hard boiled eggs at the resort.

Someone will also make a run for coffee (or make iced coffee) in the morning while we get ready with our refillable mugs.

Yogurt, apple sauce, pb&j, bread, Cheerios, sometimes we'll stop and grab some Dunkin Donuts from the Hess gas station on the way to the park.
