With all the added festivities, Epcot will warrant full day(s) during this expo. So I thought I would talk about places where you can grab breakfast at Epcot. There aren't all that many! So if these don't suit your taste, schedule your breakfast at your resort that day. Most of the resorts have quick service type eateries available.
Fountainview Starbucks Coffee - In addition to all of those Lattes and Frappuccinos, there are some breakfast sandwiches.
Sunshine Seasons located in The Land, Future World, has a bit more variety. Bacon, eggs, oatmeal, and french toast for the kids. There is also a breakfast croissant.
Princess Storybook Breakfast at the Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Norway offers a character breakfast. Be prepared to spend a little extra time for a character meal. Reservations are recommended and breakfast hours are 8:00 AM to 11:10 AM. Reserve for 8:00 AM, have a wonderful breakfast, meet some Princesses and then enjoy the festivities in the park. Buffet style dining that is sure to please. Autographs and photo opportunities are plentiful.
Epcot is open 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM, however the World Showcase hours are 11:00 AM to 9:00 PM. Hence the shortage of breakfast venues in Epcot. My best recommendation is to make your reservations for a day when evening Magic Hours apply. Start off with an early breakfast at the Akershus, taking your time to enjoy the experience. (Kids not required if you are traveling only with adults. Heck.. I'm a big kid when it comes to these character meals!)
I would then take a leisurely stroll around the World Showcase and check out all of the topiaries. Maybe sample an outside kitchen or two in my travels. Believe it or not, I would find the topiaries far more enticing than food. I have been behind the scenes and saw first hand what goes into creating those topiaries. Ok, Disney has great food, But, I'd be so full from that breakfast.. I wouldn't really want to eat more. Here is a partial list of topiaries coming up this year:
I have photos of many lovely topiaries and I should really make layouts! More on the upcoming festivities for the Flower and Garden Festival coming up in future posts!! Since you all seemed to enjoy last week's freebies, I have a couple more for you. (Several different kits from Connie were used.) Who knows... I may just make a topiary layout into a hidden element challenge... or hidden Mickey. Leave me a comment with your preference!
Until next week....
