With all the chatter and concern over the Main Street Bakery Starbucks conversion we thought it may have left some people out of sorts over where to get breakfast at the Magic Kingdom. No worries, we have the information on what is available and where you can go get fueled up or eat a cinnamon roll!
First, the Tomorrowland Terrace will be open for breakfast during the time the Main Street Bakery is closed. The menu will consist of waffles, yogurt parfaits, egg/cheese and ham croissants, oatmeal, danish pastries, coffees and beignets.
For those of you who love your morning sweets, Cinnamon rolls can be found at Gaston’s Tavern in the new Fantasyland.
Also, do not forget you can enjoy a continental breakfast at Auntie Gravity’s Galatic Goodies, Cheshire Cafe, Sleep Hollow, Sunshine Tree Terrace and Westward Ho.
Let me know if you try any of these and how was the experience? Does it help a little with the Main Street Bakery closure?
Out now is the all new 2013 Walt Disney World Park Maps! Jam packed with all new goodies including Photopass, Fantasyland, and much more. I love the new design. Very clean and stylish while not being overloaded with info that you can’t see everything you need too. You can download them here or over on our Disney Map Page.
Check them out and let me know what you think.
More maps after the jump.
There are many people out there who think of Walt Disney World as a place for kids and families, and it is true that they do cater largely to that crowd. BUT, that isn’t all they do – they work hard to make WDW a place where those of all ages can go to have fun. Personally, I love WDW even more as an adult than I did as a kid, and in case you are on the fence, here are my top 5 reasons why you should give WDW a try for your next adult vacation:
1. It’s Truly a “World” of it’s own – It’s a place where you can forget your stress and cares, and enjoy the rides, sites and characters that are around every corner at WDW. It will make you feel like a kid, and it’s truly one of the best places to have fun and enjoy yourselves!
2. The FOOD – At a lot of other theme parks, the food options range from deep fried chicken fingers and fries to ice cream and hamburgers, without a lot of variety or healthy options readily available. Disney takes Park cuisine to a whole new level – they really do have it all. There are plenty of counter service restaurants around the Parks, where you will find the standard burgers/fries/chicken, but where they also have more unique items like BBQ ribs, salads, sandwiches, soups, paninis, and delicious desserts. If you’re in the mood to relax and enjoy a sit down meal, then there are tons of sit down restaurants that range from casual to fancy with dress codes, and offer fresh seafood, delicious steaks, and plenty of other options. And if you’re more into the “all you can eat” type of cuisine, Disney has some really delicious buffets, some of which are character meals, where you can enjoy a buffet and get the chance to meet and greet your favorite characters all at the same time! We like using Disney Dining for all of our Food News & Reviews!
In 2013 Disney has some new changes to the Disney Dining Plan. There are a few changes the biggest one is an increase in the price. When you are comparing restaurants it is still early and many restaurants will be missing from the list. I find that if your favorite restaurant isn’t on the list right now it will show up as soon as they get the contract signed.
Chip’s Tips: While you are at the parks it never hurts to ask. We found last year San Angel Inn wasn’t on the DDP but when we walked up and asked they said they would take it no problem. So it never hurts to go up and ask them.
Here are the changes from last year to this year:
THE PLAN-2012 VS. 2013
The Plan details for each Dining Plan (Quick Service, Basic and Deluxe) remain the same. There is an across the board price increase:
- Quick Service- $34.99 adult/$11.99 child in 2012, now $37.58 adult/$14.32 child in 2013
- Basic-$51.54 adult/$15.02 child in 2012, now $55.59 adult/$17.16 child in 2013
- Deluxe-$$85.52 adult/$23.79 child in 2012, now $99.97 adult/$26.84 child in 2013
Several notes are added to the dining plan rules for 2013. They are as follows:
Heading to Walt Disney World in 2013? You can expect a few changes and some new experiences at everyone favorite theme park! Here is your guide to everything new in 2013 and beyond.
Of course, prices always change and not necessarily in the way we would like them to. Price increases can be seen this year in everything from dining to tickets to behind the scenes tours.
Tickets- We are already living the ticket increase for 2012-2013. Disney traditionally raises park admission prices in the summer and this held true in June of 2012. It is likely that the next ticket price increase we will see will be in summer of 2013. When prices went up last June we saw a $4 increase in the price of a 1 day base ticket which now stands at $89 and a $27 increase in the price of a 10 day base ticket which now stands at $318.
The biggest changes however, were seen in the prices of annual passes. On the annual pass front there is good news and there is bad news. The good news: Disney World Annual Pass rates rose only 11% from $519 to $574. I am considering this good news because Disneyland passholders saw a 30% increase in the price of their passes. I think it is safe to say a bullet was dodged in Orlando.
The Bad News: Disney World now has no distinction between a childs annual pass and an adult annual pass which means guests can expect to pay nearly $100 more for a child’s AP than they did in 2011.
