    Does the wave restaurant in the contemporary have character meals?

    Hey there, Janet!

    The Wave . . . of American Flavors is conveniently located inside Disney's Contemporary Resort. It's the perfect place for breakfast before heading into the Magic Kingdom, or a great stop for lunch if you are looking for a respite from theme park fun one afternoon.

    While there are no characters at any of the meals at this restaurant, I have to take a moment to rave about The Wave - at least about the hidden gem that is their buffet breakfast. They offer both an a la carte menu and the buffet at breakfast, but oh my goodness, this is my favorite Walt Disney World breakfast. Featuring sweet potato pancakes, Tillamook cheddar cheese grits, an assortment of fruit and yogurt parfaits, and the famous Mickey waffles, this is a must-do meal for me every trip. 

    If character dining is a must, just upstairs from The Wave, you'll find Chef Mickey's, where food, fun, and your favorite characters come together for a lively experience. Another great character meal without going into a theme park is the 'Ohana Best Friends Breakfast Featuring Lilo and Stitch. Just a quick monorail ride away from the Contemporary Resort at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, this is a great family meal.

    Enjoy your visit!
