Most people going on a Disney holiday will book into one of the many Florida Villa Rentals , this means you will probably end up with a mixture of self catering and eating out at local restaurants and diners. This article will give you some information on eating breakfast, it we will provide information on food items and provide some restaurant/dinner recomendations.
Americans tend to eat out a lot and to this day it amazes us at how busy all the restaurants are, whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner you will often be left queuing to get in.
Breakfast is pretty standard, nearly all will follow a set menu which is made up of, pancakes, eggs, sausages, bacon, grits, biscuits, toast, tea and coffee. Remember even if you do not see a set menu that you like then you can just ask and they will cook what you require. Below is what you need to know about ordering breakfast.
Firstly tea, yes I know you have heard of that, don't forget to order it as 'hot tea' or you may get Ice tea.
Biscuits, not what they sound like, they are more like a scone to the British but they are not sweet like a scone.
Grits are of Native American origin and are made from corn, it has the consistency of porridge and it is commonly eaten at breakfast in the South.
Eggs - You would think these are straight forward but you have many choices, scrambled and omelettes, these can be normal or just the egg whites if you so desire. Fried comes in a few choices, sunny side up, means the egg is fried without flipping and the yolk will be runny and the egg white around that my also be runny, over easy means they flip the egg over and most of the egg white is cooked but could still be a little runny, over medium means flipped over and the egg white will be totally cooked, and over well means the egg is flipped and the egg yolk can be hard.
Bacon is nearly always crispy so remember to ask if you do not like it that way.
Sausages tend to be small and often called sausage links, they are slightly bigger than cocktail sausages.
Hash browns these are pretty much the same as what you would get in the UK, one recommendation is to ask for them with cheese! - Often known as hash brown casserole.
So where do you go to get this wonderful food.
