Review: Cinnamon Roll from Walt Disney World’s BoardWalk Bakery

Today we’re stopping to check out one of my favorite go-to breakfasts when I’m staying in the Epcot Resort Area at Walt Disney World.

I’m talking about the Cinnamon Roll from BoardWalk Bakery!

It’s crazy…this is one of my favorite quick breakfasts when I’m at Disney, and I was just SURE that I had shared it with you on the blog already! But apparently, I was a whole lot of WRONG on that, so let me enchant you with this awesomeness.

You know that this spot, which you’ll find at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn, is home to lots and lots of our favorite treats. I can’t resist their Brownies (although they’ve changed a bit through the years), or their Lemon Meringue Tart. And it’s always fun to stop in and see what new Cupcakes I’ll find. Besides, it’s within walking distance of Epcot, Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club, and Walt Disney World’s Swan and Dolphin, making it a perfect pitstop nearly every time I’m in the World.

And while you won’t go wrong with such breakfast dishes as the Breakfast Waffle Cone or pastries like the Jersey Crumb Cake or Brioche Pull-Apart Loaf, this is the one that I return to again and again.

Because FROSTING!!!!!!!!!!

As you can see, it’s no slouch when it comes to size, either. But seriously, the real star here is all. That. Frosting. (And it’s Cream Cheese!) [Read more…]

While this limited run breakfast is a new offering at Hollywood Studios, we do have some idea of what breakfast is like at Sci-Fi Dine-In, thanks to the Star Wars Galactic Dine-In Breakfast (offered only during and around Star Wars Weekends).

Breakfast at the Bakery…the Main Street Bakery

As you know, I think that anything cinnamon roll related in Disney parks and resorts is a breakfast of champions. So when I was headed to the Magic Kingdom to meet a friend at the Main Street Bakery for breakfast recently, I decided I’d get a cinnamon roll.

When I arrived a bit early, I took my time scoping out the goodies available, which included these beauties:

…and realized that I haven’t really done a review of the Bakery, per say. It was part of the bakery throw down (speaking of, head over to that post to see lots of pics of atmosphere at the Bakery), of course, but as for really digging into the food options there, it’s been a while! So I took advantage of the situation.

I suppose it should have been a warning when the cast member at the check-out counter started pulling out the take-out containers, but when I got over to my table, I had this:

Breakfast at the Bakery

I got some pretty weird looks from folks, but I’m pretty used to that by now. ;-) And don’t worry, I took the food I didn’t eat back to the hotel room. And I subsequently found out that a cinnamon roll from the Bakery tastes surprisingly good even [Read more…]

Review: New Breakfast Buffet at The Wave in Disney’s Contemporary Resort

We’ve been reporting the news, and now I get to share the pics with you! The Wave…of American Flavors in Disney World’s Contemporary Resort has a brand new meal — a breakfast buffet! They’ve been testing it since December, and according to one of the managers I had a chance to speak with, it looks like it’s going to stay. I’m glad to hear it; the buffet is delicious.

Atmosphere and Background
As we know, The Wave focuses on a sustainable menu full of local products. In fact, The Wave was just approved to change their menu every few months — they’re one of the only non-signature restaurants able to do this — so that they can offer an even wider variety of seasonal, local ingredients. I’m looking forward to the updates!
