Breakfast

Sorry, I think I've asked this before, but, I can't find my answer.

How much is the breakfast buffet at the Shades?
Thanks.

The adult breakfast buffet is $8.95, not including your beverage or tip. I'm not sure about the price for children. (If you go to the SOG site, you can email them. They're pretty good about responding.)

Three years ago beverages were included at the breakfast buffet but I have read multiple posts where that has changed. They used to have dispensers in the buffet area for juice. I'm fine with the price because where else in WDW can you eat breakfast for that little?

We were just there last month, and they no longer have the juice dispensers (they didn't have them last year, either). Also, the "fresh fruit" wasn't quite as good as it used to be. But, I totally agree that it's still a good deal if you like to start off with a good sized breakfast.

Hmm summer 07' they had the juice dispensers, but charged extra for coffee. Their, ahem, fresh fruit, was out of a can. In all though, its still a great deal and much better than the dinner buffet!

Yep.

I also wanted to mention that if you plan to eat the breakfast buffet each day of your stay, you might check into the Sunrise package. It includes b-fast daily plus a gift certificate to the East/West gift shop. We did the Fun/Sun package (offered Sept/Jan only), and with the gift certificate, we actually came out a bit ahead.

If you email or call them with your info, they can give you a quote on the packages versus room only to see which would be the best deal for you.

Bummer!

We were there in 2004 and I remember drinks included and the fruit I seem to think was fresh. Oh well! It is still priced better than a Disney buffet at $17-22 per person.

I am working on our food budget and hope to have most breakfasts at the Shades so we can fill up, eat an easy CS lunch and then an ADR dinner.

Thanks.
If you check the very first post on this thread, under the title heading (Dining), you will see the cost of the breakfast buffet. It is $8.95 for adults and $4.95 for children. This does not include drinks, which are $2.

Stitchrulz- I looked into that Sunrise package. Unless things changed the last few months, there is absolutely zero savings. I priced the individual charges (buffet/drink) and even priced that generous gift certificate. It all came to the same amount as the package. Not everyone is going to find something they want in that gift shop. The only thing this package is for is the convenience factor.

We were there in Sept. and the fruit was good - my DH loved the grapefruit. I had the cantolope which was excellent. I miss the juice also at the buffet, but we feel the same way - where else can you have breakfast for that price in Disney.

I think we also found that to be the case with the Sunrise package. That's why we went with the Fun/Sun package. The total package was priced $20.00 less than the Sunrise and in addition to the daily b-fast and $20.00 gift certificate, it also included a free Starbuck's coffee per adult and a free dessert at Mangino's. You're very right about the gift shop, although they had a much better selection this trip than on our previous ones. They actually had a nice selection of "Shades" souvies, but if you're looking for "Disney" items, you'll be out of luck.

And, I've never seen canned canteloupe before. I'll report back whether it's fresh fruit or not in a few weeks. I'm sure some of it is not freshly cut, but that's pretty common at a lot of buffets. We'll probably eat there 4 out of 6 mornings.

What? You've never had cannedeloupe O.k., that was weak. Serioulsy though, the canteloupe/melon was fresh, but the trays of mixed fruit "salad" appeared to be canned. It's still a great value, though.

Have a great time!!!
