Disney World Brunch Spots on a Budget
If you’re looking for a slow morning at Disney World, why not try brunch? Rather than rushing to the Parks first thing in the morning, try a more relaxed approach to your Disney vacation. We always try to include at least one slower morning during our trips. Because let’s face it. Disney is exhausting! And if you’re supposed to be on vacation, well then, a brunch is the perfect way to slow your mornings down.
Outside of the best character breakfasts at Disney World, most breakfast reservations are fairly easy to get. Since most people are off to the parks, this creates an opportunity for you! But we know all too well how the costs of food at Disney can really add up. And while many people like to save money and just eat something small in their room for breakfast or something quick from the food court, if that’s not your style, or you’re hoping for something a little more memorable on your vacation, we have you covered. Here are the best Disney World brunch spots at Disney World on a budget.
Ale and Compass Brunch at Disney World
Ale and Compass is one of those restaurants you don’t really hear a lot of people talk about. Located at Disney’s Yacht Club, it’s easy to miss. And they can sometimes be a bit inconsistent. But they are easily one of the best places for a budget friendly breakfast or brunch at Walt Disney World. And here’s why. Almost all of their breakfast entrees are $20 or less, which most of them being in the “less” category. They also take a variety of discounts, meaning you can often get these meals for even less with an Annual Passholder, Disney Visa or DVC discount.
Their dark chocolate waffles and breakfast flatbread are our top picks here, but everything we’ve tried on this menu is amazing. They also have the option of a breakfast buffet that includes pastries, yogurts and your non-alcoholic drink. The location at the Yacht Club also makes it super easy to head right over to Epcot when you’re don eating.
Kona Café at The Polynesian Resort
Kona Café in our opinion is one of the most underrated restaurants on Disney property. Not only is it located on the grounds of the beautiful Polynesian Village Resort but reservations are usually pretty easy to get. Even at the last minute! Home to some of the best coffee at Walt Disney World, you can order the press pot brewed with rich and delicious Kona coffee. Looking to get your mimosa fix? Choose 3 mimosa flavors with the mimosa flight, or try the POG mimosa, it’s a must! The Macadamia Nut Pancakes and Tonga Toast are real stars of the show here and you won’t be disappointed. They also serve eggs scrambled or fried, omelets, hash browns, mickey waffles, the works! And this Disney Breakfast is Budget Friendly. Check out the Kona Cafe Breakfast Review for all the details.
The Grand Floridian Café at Grand Floridian Resort and Spa
The Grand Floridian Café offers what they like to call “blunch” but regardless of what it’s called, this Disney World Brunch Spot is amazing. Choose from rich and decadent choices like lobster benedict or a delicious brioche French toast with all the toppings. Or go as simple as classic Mickey waffles. Either way, you’re in for an absolute treat. Another location that features a delicious press pot of coffee to start your caffeine-fueled day. Or you can relax with one of their hand-crafted mimosas or bloody marys. Set in the beautiful Grand Floridian Resort, this is easy to get to and is a great escape from the heat and the crowds of Walt Disney World. Check out our Grand Floridian Cafe Restaurant Review.
Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ Brunch at Disney Springs
By far one of the best breakfasts at Walt Disney World, Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ offers a southern style brunch to die for. Venture over to Disney Springs to find this gem. Only available Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am-2 p.m., Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ Rise ‘n Shine Brunch features southern comfort food at its finest. Fried Chicken and Doughnuts are a fun twist on a southern classic dish and are worth the trip out alone. Add in delicious homemade biscuits, fried green tomatoes, and one of the most delicious blueberry mimosas you’ll ever try, and we promise your brunch-loving heart will leave happy. If you’re looking for Disney World Brunch Spots check out our Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ Brunch Review.
Though not the cheapest budget friendly brunch places at Disney, it does offer several dishes for under $20 and all of the kids meals they offer are just $12. So if you choose wisely, you can easily spend a little less here than other places in Disneyworld.
Trattoria Al Forno for a brunch on a budget at Disney
Many people remember Trattoria Al Forno as the Bon Voyage Character Breakfast. It was a fun one! But Disney has yet to bring that one back, so if you’re solely looking for character meals, you might just miss out on this one. But that’s no reason to! Trattoria Al Forno has quickly become of the best places for breakfast or brunch at Disneyworld. Part of the reason for that is the price. Very budget friendly and with excellent options to choose from. Their breakfast pizza, avocado toast and Caprese Omelet are all fantastic and will cost you just $15 or less. They also have the best iced coffee at Disney World. Making mornings even more magical. And if you’re looking to brunch in a fun, adult at Disney type of way, they also offer a selection of alcoholic mornings drinks as well.
Trattoria Al Forno is located on the Boardwalk, which can make it a little tricky to get to as times. And it’s one reason I think many people tend to stay away from it. This is good news for you though, because that means it’s usually very easy to find a dining reservation!
Steakhouse 71 at Disney’s Contemporary Resort
Previously The Wave, Steakhouse 71 is another one of our favorite brunch spots for a relaxing Disney Vacation. Not only can you walk there from Magic Kingdom (or take the monorail-your pick!), but they serve bottomless mimosas at a pretty reasonable price. Outside of their bottomless mimosas though, the food is quite good as well. With a decent variety of options, including special Mickey waffles that you used to be able to get only at the Star Wars Galactic Cruiser Hotel, which is now closed, along with other steakhouse style plates, like Steak and Eggs and Walt’s Prime Rib Hash. You can often find a great meal here for under $20. All while skipping the chaos of mornings at Magic Kingdom and enjoying it after you’ve had something to eat.
Les Halles Boulangerie & Patisserie in Epcot France
While definitely not one of the most obvious Disney World Brunch Spots, Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie has everything you need. Here you can create a perfect brunch on a budget at Disney World. Reservations can’t be made here since it’s a quick-service restaurant, so no real planning is required. Making this a perfect budget-friendly Disney Restaurant choice.
With wine starting at $8.50 for a glass, and $12.50 for mimosas, you can easily get a full brunch here for under $20 with the alcohol cost included, depending on your brunch entree. You can choose from a variety of breakfast sandwiches, mimosas, cappuccinos, and more. Plus, the most indulgent pastry case you’ll find at Walt Disney World. So, if you’re looking for an inexpensive and laid-back spot for brunch, this is our go-to.
