Hey y’all! I hope y’all had a great Easter weekend! On Easter Grant and I headed to Disney’s Contemporary Resort for their brunch. Today’s offerings were a bit different from usual from my understanding, but according to the website they will have the same offerings on Mother’s Day if you are interested.
I first went to The Wave years ago when they first opened and I wasn’t a fan honestly. But after dining there during Hurricane Irma in 2017, I would say it’s pretty good! Funny enough we even had the same server on Easter as we did back during Irma. But let’s get into it!
*I also want to apologize in advance for the photos. The lighting is not very good in the restaurant and I didn’t want to be a nuisance with the flash*
For both Easter and Mother’s Day The Wave offers a great deal when it comes to Disney sit-down dining. It was a flat rate of $40 for adults and $23 for children. Unfortunately, since it was Easter we were unable to get an Annual Pass discount, and I’m assuming the case will be the same on Mother’s Day. But for that flat rate you got a non-alcoholic beverage, an entree, PLUS the buffet. They had a variety of entree offerings ranging from breakfast options like eggs Benedict as well as dinner options like strip loin steak.
The buffet offered wide variety of choices, from fresh fruit to dessert! They had a few salad options including caesar salad, harvest salad (strawberries, etc), farro salad, antipasto salad, and shaved brussel sprout & bacon salad; a variety of fruits, yogurts, and toppings to build your own parfait; some savory options like smoked salmon, tomato bisque, citrus shrimp, cheese, and charcuterie; oh, and I couldn’t forget the variety of breads and pastries. 😉 Some of my favorites were the tomato bisque and smoked salmon. Grant was a fan of the citrus shrimp and harvest salad.
As for entrees I enjoyed the eggs Benedict and Grant had the strip loin. The Benedict was served with breakfast potatoes and while it wasn’t the BEST Benedict I’ve ever had, it was still pretty solid. Grant’s strip loin was cooked to perfection and was served with mashed potatoes and green beans. He really enjoyed it!
The dessert side of the buffet were mostly Easter themed items, so these may vary for the Mother’s Day buffet. Some of the more “normal” offerings were cookies, funfetti cupcakes, and a strawberry bar. Unique items like carrot cakes, Peep mousse, key lime tarts, and chocolate cheesecake were also offered. Most items had a Easter or Spring decoration on them. Our favorites were the carrot cake and chocolate cheesecake! But I will admit, we both HATE Peeps, but we wanted to try the mousse anyway, and it was actually pretty good.
Overall, I think this was/is a great option for Easter/Mother’s Day! There really was something for everyone. The Wave definitely isn’t my favorite restaurant on property, but I can see myself going back at some point. I will attach a link HERE to Disney’s website with the menu so y’all can see their “normal” offerings. Leave me a comment and let me know if you’ve been to The Wave, or tell me what Disney restaurant we should try next.
Thanks for reading!
