Breakfast at The Wave
We went to the Wave for Breakfast. We had never been before and to be honest, The Contemporary is not my favorite resort. I know that there is so much history but it feels and looks so dated to me.
Since we like to try new things, we figured we’d step out of our comfort zone. I’m glad we did. The lobby is ultra modern and totally hip. The clean lines and different textures of the wood, glass and tiles really do feel mid century modern “contemporary”.
The Wave is located on the bottom floor off the lobby and the clean crisp design follows in there. It doesn’t feel sterile but warm and inviting. We had a wonderful server (Mary)who was so bubbly and fun. She loved spreading the magic!
The breakfast menu is either a la carte or they have a breakfast buffet. We chose the buffet (of course). It is set up in a long galley style room. There is an assortment of fresh fruit, cottage cheese and yogurt, pastries and bagels and toppings. Cold cuts and cheeses nicely displayed as is the cereal table. The real gems would be the cheesy bacon grits and Eggs Benedict. The hash browns, scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage are winners. Of course you can’t go wrong with Mickey head waffles! The sweet potato pancakes are amazing – use the honey pecan butter on them.
The a la carte menu has many of the same dishes as are available in the buffet but obviously not all you can enjoy. The pricing is actually pretty fair also. We were able to get same day reservations on My Disney Experience.
The staff is attentive and a lot of fun. There weren’t any sweet potato pancakes out when Joe went up so they brought them over to him. The service level is wonderful, of course, because we know that Cast Members Rule!
So although The Contemporary is not my favorite resort, I did find that there are elements that I truly enjoy and will give it another try!
