Q: What Disney World restaurants offer special dining options for Easter and Mother’s Day?
A: What better way to ring in a the Spring season than to treat the family to a special Easter or Mother’s Day Celebration at Walt Disney World. Historically, several restaurants have offered special meals to commemorate these festive occasions and if you’ll be in the Orlando area and looking to celebrate, you’ll want to make your bookings soon. What that being said, here’s what we know so far about Spring holiday dining options.
Easter (Sunday April 16th): A delightful range of Disney eateries have already announced that they will be taking Easter reservations. The list includes:
- Cape May Cafe (Disney’s Beach Club Resort)- Start Easter off right with a breakfast that includes eggs, frittatas, and the much-loved Mickey Waffles. Also let’s keep our fingers crosses for the Candied Bacon carving station which won over Easter breakfast guests last year. Dinner options include tried-and-true Easter favorites like Leg of Lamb and Strip Loin.
- Captain’s Grille (Disney’s Yacht Club Resort) – With tasty breakfast items like french toast, scrambled eggs, sausage and grits, you can’t really go wrong with a Easter reservation at this Epcot resort eatery. Or, for a more seafood-focused menu try brunch with options liked baked Alaskan Cod, Crab Cakes and hopefully the return of hot cross buns from the local bakery.
- The Wave…of American Favorites (Disney’s Contemporary Resort) – For those wishing to dine on the monorail line, The Wave will again be serving up brunch classics like omelets, crab cakes, mussels, pork loin and waffles. When you’re finished you’re also just a short monorail ride away from the Easter festivities at the Magic Kingdom where you may even get to meet the Easter Bunny himself!
- Trail’s End Restaurant (Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campgrounds) – For Easter dinner with a bit more of a rustic flair, Trail’s End is the perfect place for a down-home dinner. Specialties include: chili, peel-n-eat shrimp, ribs, fried chicken, pasta and pizza.
- Boma- Flavors of Africa (Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge) – For a taste of the exotic, head over to Animal Kingdom Lodges delightful buffet restaurant where you can start your brunch off with mimosas and zebra domes before tucking into succulent lamb or more traditional breakfast fair.
Mother’s Day ( Sunday May 14th) : If you’re looking for a special treat for mom, these Disney restaurants are just the ticket. Couple it with a nice stroll over to Epcot or a visit to the Magic Kingdom and she’ll feel like the luckiest mom in the World. Many restaurants (particularly those in Disney Springs) should be releasing Mother’s Day menus in the weeks ahead. In the meantime here’s a handful of tried-and-true favorites that we know will be pulling out all of the stops for Mom.
- Captains Grille – (Disney’s Yacht Club Resort) – Perfect for those mom’s that love seafood, the Mother’s Day Brunch at Captains Grille typically includes breakfast favorites like omelets, pastries, and Mickey Waffles and Mother’s Day specialties like peel-and-eat-shrimp, salads, and a sirloin steak carving station.
- Boma – Flavors of Africa (Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge)- The perfect place to spend a Sunday afternoon, check-in with the animals via one of the many viewing areas before heading in for a brunch packed with breakfast and lunch buffet items with an emphasis on African cuisine. You’ll find a range of fruits, salads, carvery items and a tasty selection of desserts that may even include the coveted Zebra Domes.
- The Wave…of American Flavors (Disney’s Contemporary Resort) – This Mother’s Day Brunch always packs them in and includes dishes like smoked salmon, quiche, french toast, pork chops, chicken, waffles, and cinnamon apples. There’s also a fresh selection of baked goods and desserts. Being on the monorail line also makes it easy to treat mom to her very own theme park adventure.
- Garden View Tea Room (Disney’s Grand Floridan Resort & Spa) – Though not a breakfast or brunch, I’m of the option that you can’t mention Mother’s Day without a nod to this delightful afternoon option. Surrounded by the breathtaking ambiance of the Grand Floridan, visitors will enjoy a tea service done British style. Mom will be served a delectable selection of teas, finger sandwiches, cakes and pastries while one of the Grand Floridian’s famous pianists or a live band sets the tone. Tea service is available every day from 2pm – 5pm.
