Table Service

Boma — Flavors of Africa

The undisputed heavyweight, Boma is an all-you-care-to-enjoy buffet, and boy is it expansive! 

Boma Buffet

There is so much food and so many options for you to choose from. The food ranges from bold African cuisine to American comfort foods.

Look how CUTE!

But wait, there’s more! Boma is close to Animal Kingdom Lodge’s savanna, which means you can head outside before or after your meal to try to sneak a peek at some of the animals that live in the area. We’ve seen zebras, giraffes, okapis, and more! Seeing the animals could be a great way to keep you entertained while waiting for a table.

Topolino’s Terrace — Flavors of the Riviera

In Topolino’s Terrace, Parisian perfection awaits at this Riviera Resort gem, which is inspired by Europe and the Mediterranean (and by Walt and Lillian Disney’s travels!). “Topolino” is the Italian name for Mickey Mouse! The “Terrace” part refers to the rooftop location of this stunning restaurant.

Topolino’s Terrace

During what’s officially known as Breakfast à la Art with Mickey & Friends, you’ll meet Topolino himself wearing his painting garb! Also, each of the characters wears special costumes that are completely unique to Topolino’s and reflect their art!

Sour Cream Waffle

Now, Topolino’s Terrace is NOT an all-you-care-to-eat experience. And the variety of options is not large in the way buffet choices are. But in addition to being beautifully presented, dishes here are also well-executed and, of course, prepared to order.

Whispering Canyon Café

Yeehaw your way into a hearty breakfast feast at Whispering Canyon Cafe.

Whispering Canyon Cafe

Breakfast here offers up some All-You-Care-To-Enjoy Signature Skillets, main entrées, sides, and more.

It’s a delightful way to begin your Disney day.

Ale & Compass Restaurant

Ale & Compass is a Yacht Club gem that offers a unique twist: combine a continental-style breakfast buffet with a made-to-order entree.

During this character meal, you can enjoy lots of amazing food, while also meeting Snow White, Ariel, Sleeping Beauty, Belle, and Tiana. It’s a great value in terms of food and meet-and-greets — we don’t think you’ll be disappointed!

Also, if you’re using the DDP, Akershus Royal Banquet Hall offers a Princess Character Meal for one credit, while Cinderella’s Royal Table requires two.

    1. I’m surprised that the Kona Cafe (in the Polynesian) did not make the sit down list of best breakfasts. I see so many people raving about Tongo toast (and possibly Macadamia Nut Pancakes) that Kona Cafe was not on the list.

      On the other hand, I’m not surprised that Chef Mickey’s (in the Contemporary) did not make the list.

      I do agree that Boma belongs on the list. On our upcoming trip, we will be staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge, and plan to eat at Boma both for breakfast and supper.
