Non-Character Breakfast Ideas

I am thinking about doing a sit down Breakfast Instead of a park on my leaving day (flight is at 3 PM that day and don't want to miss ME). What is a good breakfast that isn't a character meal? It can be any park or resort. I've never done a nice breakfast to end a trip before. I usually grab yogurt and fruit, then get a pastry later in the morning in a park.

How about Grand Floridian Cafe for breakfast? I've never been, but its a good place if you want to go to MK for a quick trip! Another idea is Kona Cafe in the Poly. I still have yet to get my hands on some tonga toast....

Breakfast at Kona is a must-do every trip for us! I highly recommend the pineapple macademia nut pancakes

Kouzzina. The stacked breakfast is great. I wish they'd sell the artichoke spread in jars. I'd fill my suitcase with it.

I love Kona breakfast. So yummy. You might also consider grand Floridian cafe. And captains grill, the wave, or boma.

We have had breakfast at Kona, Kouzzina, and Boma.

I have heard great things about The Wave & Grand Floridian Cafe.

We like breakfast. We enjoyed our breakfast at all three.

I would say we prefer Boma first for variety because it is a buffet, then Kouzzina you can beat the view, we had a table that was by the doors and they were open on to the Boardwalk it was gorgeous morning. Kona our server wasn't that great but the food was good.

I think you can't go wrong with whatever you choose.

I have a follow up question. Would Boma, Kouzzina or Kona be able to walk up or ADR's be needed? The date would be March 4th and being a solo I think I'm not a breakfast ADR person. Just too much stress when I'm on vacation. If I need ADR's, I can adjust.

I bet you could do a walk up on all three.

The Wave is our favorite. I think its the freshest buffet on property. And if you don't want a buffet you can order from their menu. Great home made biscuits and awesome grits (did I say I don't like grits?)

Sometimes we'll do this on the last day and then tour some of the monorail resorts before we head home.

Feel free to check out my review of the Wave breakfast with photos:

This is a random question, but is the pineapple baked into the pancakes or on top as a garnish? (I love pineapple but have GERD so try not to eat it) But they sound delicious!
