Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. While you may disagree with that statement, it is more than true when you’re aboard the cruise boat with no prospects for lunch at your port of call. Breakfast is responsible for filling you up until you return to ship, or until dinner time in some cases. (We always had packaged food to bring off the boat with us, but it wasn’t the most nutritional lunch.)
Now, breakfasts are for the most part served on a buffet. Of course, the Disney chefs will prepare your meals separately, and you’ll order them at dinner the night before. Plus, you’ll receive a ton of fresh berries, which are hard to come by the end of the trip. So without further ado, here are my two breakfast reviews.
The Enchanted Garden
The Enchanted Garden is a quieter dining option as it is not as popular as Cabanas. When you enter, you’ll be seated by a hostess, who you should alert of your food allergies. In my case, my headwaiter didn’t work here, so he placed my order with another headwaiter who I met the night before.
I thought it was funny that they brought out the whole container of hemp milk- my favorite non-dairy milk which wasn’t always available on the boat. However, it was almost empty, so I finished off most of the container. I then combined my meal together as a final product!
Cabanas is a buffet style restaurant where you seat yourself. I always went to look for a headwaiter to receive my meal. (Reminder: You’ll order it the night before.)
Cabanas is usually where my headwaiter worked, and I had my usual every day: fruit, bacon, Rice Chex, and a non-diary milk option. Hemp milk is my favorite non-dairy substitute, although sometimes I had almond milk on the boat too.
At Cabanas, I frequently received a whole pound of bacon because they had to prepare my bacon separately from the rest. Additionally, Cabanas has the best fruit selection on the boat; I always received an abundance of berries.
Cabana’s is also where you’ll eat if you choose express check out on your last day on board. This gave us a little bit of extra time to sleep because for our “sit down” breakfast with our usual dining staff we were the first seating at 6 am.

Happy Magical Monday! And, may the rest of 2015 be sprinkled with pixie dust as well. 🙂
