1. Ale & Compass Restaurant, Disney’s Yacht Club
Ale & Compass Restaurant, the recently remodeled space at the Yacht Club Resort (that was Captain’s Grille), may be my new favorite breakfast restaurant at Walt Disney World. They have a spectacular and creative breakfast menu (get the Cornbread Waffle)—and I am pretty sure that until everyone finds out my secret you don’t even need a breakfast reservation at most times to be seated. I’ve even made a reservation from my room for 30 minutes later. They are also open for lunch and dinner, and you probably won’t have much trouble getting reservations for those dining times either—but if you are coming for dinner definitely try to get a reservation. The dinner menu is just as great as breakfast with a combination of seafood, steaks, pastas and more. And, the Yacht Club is within walking distance of Epcot—so if you can’t get a reservation in World Showcase you can just walk over and enjoy a great meal, then return to Epcot for fireworks.
