Day 2 – Arriving at Walt Disney World


We got up around 5 am, got ready for the day, finished packing everything up, and headed downstairs for our free breakfast. Normally, free breakfast = nasty bits of dried up muffins and danish. How will this breakfast stand up to the test?


This is mine. As you can see, my waffle got partially destroyed as I tried to take it out of the waffle iron. It also tasted a bit like cardboard and the sausage patty was cold and very rubbery...


This is my dad’s plate. Notice those unnaturally yellow eggs, appetizing huh? My brother’s plate was identical, except he had a side of yogurt.


Here is my mom’s plate. Pretty basic breakfast, nothing special. Unfortunately, one of the toasters didn't realize it was actually supposed to toast things and instead just warmed up her english muffin.


Our free breakfast receives a…


Obviously, this breakfast failed the test. I did come up with a new equality though: Free breakfast = Nasty bits of waffle and bright yellow eggs. Oh well, at least it was free. And we have something much more important on our itinerary than fussing over a not-so-delicious breakfast – going to WDW!

Next up: We reach our destination and have our first meal at Walt Disney World!

That breakfast looks pretty nasty! We stayed for a free weekend at the Staybridge Suites close to DTD and the free breakfast was sooo bad! We have stayed many times at the Holiday Inn and Marriott Courtyards and the breakfasts are much better but then again nothing beats a WDW breakfast It can be bad but is still good, know what I mean?

Enjoying the report so far - it's really helping me get my Disney food fix (doesn't matter you're not in WDW yet... still filling fix). Really like the rating system too!

Hi Betsy!!

Looks like I'm a bit late to your review! It looks awesome so far and I can't wait to read more.

I love your ratings system and I have to tell you, I nearly died laughing when you posted one meal as a Gibbs and a half

Yup, let's just say it is one I'll never forget... And yes, I definitely know what you mean about never having a bad breakfast at WDW. Even the bacon can't ruin it for me.

Thanks for coming aboard! And yes, that sausage was really nasty... I took one bite and decided that was it for me. Yeah, my family has quite a few of those memories!

Day 2 – Continued


We were on the road by 7 and reached Walt Disney World by 10. Huzzah! We checked in at Port Orleans Riverside and then parked our car near our building. (Side note: Don’t you just love check in day when you have the rest of your vacation ahead of you?) After that we hopped on a bus to the Magic Kingdom!

After reaching the park, we declared it time for lunch. Andrew’s favorite CS is Columbia Harbour House, so that is the direction in which we headed. This place has a nautical theme, which I absolutely love!

My mom and dad shared this:

Chicken Breast Nuggets and Fish, with French Fries ($8.39)
They said the fish was very heavy and too greasy. I tried a bite of fish and unfortunately had to agree with them.

My dad also got the New England Clam Chowder ($4.49)

He enjoyed this and thought it was quite delicious.

My brother and I shared this:

Fried Shrimp Basket - Served with Coleslaw and French Fries ($9.89)
We both thought this was excellent! Unlike the fish, the shrimp weren’t greasy. The coleslaw was also very good and definitely helped lighten up the meal. This is quite a large portion for one person, as the shrimp are very big – I definitely recommended sharing it.

Andrew also got the kid’s Macaroni and Cheese with grapes, applesauce, and chocolate milk. ($4.99)

He loves this Mac and Cheese and will usually order it if it’s on the menu. It is pretty cheesy and creamy, making it very delicious!

How did our first meal at WDW fare?

This was definitely a great meal, except for the greasy fish. We will definitely come here again!


Now that we have reached WDW, I will include the total cost of every meal. So, without further ado, this meal came to a total of $29.57.


***Tip – We always order cups of ice water at all restaurants. It’s free and keeps us hydrated – a win win if you ask me!

Next up: Our room is ready and then it’s time for dinner!

We ate at Columbia Harbour House last year for the first time and thought it was pretty good. Our fish was good not to greasy.

I'm plopping down and making myself good and comfy, I'm in for the long haul. Please note that that is significantly different from a keel haul. Bring on the eats!

We tried Columbia Harbor House in June on our first visit to WDW. Loved it! Loved eating upstairs looking out the windows and we loved the shrimp and the tuna sandwich.
