Review: Cinnamon French Toast Bread Pudding at Epcot’s Sunshine Seasons

You know that feeling when you’ve rope-dropped Soarin’ Around the World… but in order to do that, you had to skip breakfast?

Yeah, that feeling is hunger. And we’ve got just the thing to help you muster your strength for the rest of your day.

It’s a little thing we call Cinnamon French Toast Bread Pudding. Actually, that’s not just us. That’s what the friendly folks at Sunshine Seasons in the Land Pavilion at Epcot call it, too ;) .

You know Sunshine Seasons as the conveniently located food court with fresh and unusual-by-theme-park-standards grub. We like to keep a close eye on the menus and pastry cases here because it seems like new things are always popping up.

Before the Soarin’ refurb, it used to be home to a Croissant Berry Bread Pudding for breakfast. But that’s since been replaced by the Cinnamon French Toast Bread Pudding.

It was more than high time to check it out. The Cinnamon French Toast Bread Pudding is available during breakfast hours (until 11AM), and, like the Croissant Berry Bread Pudding before it, it’s a twist on a traditional breakfast favorite. It’s worth noting that what we received looks quite different from the picture on the menu, but we’re not unaccustomed to that.

What you see above (and throughout this post) is what you get. Rather than two large pieces of French Toast, we received a smaller, but very dense, bread pudding with a large serving side of bacon.

The bacon, of course, is standard… which is great news because BACON. We were more interested, though, in the Cinnamon French Toast Bread Pudding.

So, how is it? The crispy top layer delivers the French Toast vibes you’d expect, along with the dusting of powdered sugar.

The bulk of the bread pudding is a spongy French Toast — definitely more of the texture one expects from bread pudding. Honestly, it might be a little too spongy, so if texture is an issue for you, keep that in mind. But the richness of the bread pudding and that strong cinnamon flavor make this a unique breakfast option (and perhaps a welcome detour from scrambled eggs).

At $6.99, this is a decent breakfast option, particularly if you’re looking for something a little different. And remember, with everything from your traditional breakfast platter to a bakery case chock full of muffins, croissants, and cupcakes (which is a perfectly reasonable option when you’re on vacation!), Sunshine Seasons is a convenient breakfast stop with — even more importantly — something to please every member of the family… regardless of whether or not you partake before or after you Soar Around the World.

    I thought they stopped serving breakfast! This is good news. We always do child swap at Soarin’ and I grab a bite to eat with my toddler while my wife and son ride.

    hmmm…I’d definitely have an issue with the photo vs. reality on this one. Don’t show me two slabs of bread pudding and then serve me a weird little cube! Was there always such a big discrepancy?

  3. Mark says

    I agree Gigi. A Disney produced food picture is pretty worthless. We now don’t bother with anything at a festival until we’ve seen a real picture from DFB.

    I tried this last week. I found the cinnamon flavor to be too strong (but I’m not really a cinnamon person), but my husband LOVED it. The texture was really great. If you like cinnamon, but don’t think this will be enough food, you can just order the adult breakfast platter. When I was there, it came with eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes, AND a chunk of the bread pudding, so you get a filling breakfast and get to try it.
