We’re headed back to our “Best Thing I Ever Ate at Disney!” series today
I did a post a couple of weeks back titled The Five Best Things I Ate In Disneyland, which sparked a fun series based on the Food Network’s (very cool) show, The Best Thing I Ever Ate. Based on some keen suggestions from readers, we’ll be splitting our series up into different sections: breakfast, appetizers & side dishes, snacks, entrees (lunch and dinner), and desserts & drinks.
Today, let’s talk breakfast! I’ve done my favorite brand of informal polling (i.e. posted questions on twitter and facebook 😉 ) to find out others’ experiences of the Best Thing They Ever Ate for breakfast at Disney. I must say, the conclusions aren’t all that shocking, but they are delicious! Here’s what we’ve all come up with:
Ah, the glorious little Mickey Waffle! I have no idea why these little guys taste as wonderful as they do, but it’s like melt-in-your-mouth happiness as soon as you bite into one (you think I’m being overly dramatic, but I promise, they’re delicious).
Luckily, you can get them all over Disney World (I have a partial list here) — book a breakfast buffet and you’re almost sure to see them. If you’d rather not deal with locking off time for a full meal, head to Sleepy Hollow in the Magic Kingdom to get a giant version!
Tonga Toast at Disney’s Polynesian Resort
This isn’t your standard stuffed french toast. Tonga Toast is basically a 2-inch thick piece of banana-stuffed, cinnamon-sugar coated, deep-fried goodness! You can find it at the Polynesian’s Kona Cafe as well as at Captain Cook’s downstairs!
Be sure to request strawberry compote and macadamia nut butter to go along with your toast!
Cinnamon Roll at Main Street Bakery
Finally, we arrive at the larger-than-life Cinnamon Roll at the Magic Kingdom’s Main Street Bakery! (I wish we had smell-o-blogging!) These cinnamon rolls seem to get bigger and bigger each time I’m in the bakery, and they’re definitely enough to share. We can only hope they return when the bakery re-opens from its Starbucks renovation.
There’s one important thing to remember, though — make sure you get the extra, added scoop of cream cheese frosting on top of your roll! That’s right, the Bakery actually has a vat of melty frosting that they use to top the ordered rolls going out on the plates. Now that’s a Disney difference…
Of course, while those were the most-recommended breakfast options, there were other stand-outs as well! Here are a few of the other “Best Thing I Ever Ate at Disney!” Breakfast suggestions:
- Beignets at Port Orleans French Quarter
- Chocolate danish and Cheese danish (Yes; it was that specific!)
- Date nut bread from the old Tangaroa Terrace at Disney’s Polynesian Resort
