Thrifty Thursday: All You Care To Cheap

Chef Mickey'sSurprise! I’m writing about breakfast again.

Here’s the premise: it’s expensive. Especially if you’re looking for a buffet that’ll offers lots of options for your hungry troops. Take a look at these numbers (adult prices listed):

  • $32.99 for Princess Storybook Breakfast (Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, Epcot) 
  • $30.88 for Disney Junior Play ‘n Dine Breakfast (Hollywood & Vine, Disney’s Hollywood Studios)
  • $28.99 for Mickey’s Fun Time Buffet (Chef Mickey’s, Contemporary Resort) 
  • $26.99 for Beach Club Breakfast Buffet (Cape May Café, Beach Club) 
  • $24.99 for Supercalifragilistic Breakfast (1900 Park Faire, Grand Floridian Resort)

Whoa! Feed one adult and two children at any of these places is going to cost at least $55 …

But wait! Who said breakfast has to have characters to be a delicious and filling start to your day?? I present to you, the two cheapest breakfast buffets on Disney World Resort property:

  • $19.99 for the breakfast buffet at The Wave (Contemporary Resort) 
  • $17.99 for the breakfast buffet at Trail’s End Restaurant (Fort Wilderness Resort)

Mickey wafflesNot only are both of these buffets delicious (try the sweet potato pancakes at The Wave … absolutely to die for!), but they’re both just a boat ride away from the Magic Kingdom. So you can fill ’em up and let ’em loose in New Fantasyland!

And if you’re really, really cheap (ehem … like myself), I have an even better option for you: All You Care to Enjoy dining! At Whispering Canyon Café at the Wilderness Lodge, you can get a bottomless-plate full of scrambled eggs, red potatoes, bacon, sausage, biscuits and Mickey waffles all for only $16.49!!

Here’s the conclusion: you can get full bellies and keep a full(ish) wallet. Hooray for inexpensive buffets!!

    I ate at the Wave a few months ago, and I believe the buffet has gone up to $19.99. That’s still a good deal for all that deliciousness, but I had read $18.99 online before I went so I noticed when it was more.
