Thrifty Thursday: Eat This, Not That for Breakfast at the Resort Hotels

When you’re heading toward an early morning rope drop and a full day in the Parks, breakfast truly is the most important meal of the day. Of course, the quickest, easiest way to save on breakfast is to bring your own from home: breakfast bars, coffee-maker oatmeal, yogurt and things like that. But if, like me, you need something warm and full of protein to make it through the day, here are some ways to save cash before you hit the resort bus stop.

Tonga Toast at The Polynesian

The Expensive Version
At the Kona Café, they’ll serve you a delicious plate of Tonga Toast with a side of meat for $12.99.

The Less-Expensive Version
Downstairs at Captain Cook’s, you can get a delicious plate of the sweet sourdough toast (without the meat) for only $5.19.

Potential Savings: $7.80

Full Breakfast at The Contemporary

The Expensive Version
At The Wave, if you order The American, you get two naturally-raised eggs with breakfast potatoes and choice of bacon, pork sausage or chicken sausage for $11.99.

The Less-Expensive Version
Upstairs at the Contempo Café, for $6.79 you can get a breakfast platter with scrambled (but probably not natural-raised) eggs along with bacon, turkey sausage, breakfast potatoes and biscuit.

Potential Savings: $5.20

Waffles at The Grand Floridian

The Expensive Version
At the Grand Floridian Café, you can a Mickey waffle with bacon or sausage for $10.99.
