Kidani Village In-Room Dining

On our last morning of vacation we decided to take it easy.  Having been out very late at Mickey's Not So Scary the night before, we thought that the best plan would simply be sleeping in and taking our time to back up before we headed home.  Staying at Kidani Village has been lovely, but there's really no quick and easy place to get breakfast.  Since the plan of the day was to be lazy, I figured that it would be the best time to order in some room service.

Room Service Breakfast

After browsing through the menu in my sleepy state I ordered the apricot brioche french toast and I ordered Geordon a ham and cheese omelet. We also got coffee and juice. I pressed the button on the phone for in room dining, the cast member on the phone who took my order was friendly and explained to me how room service works when using the Disney dining plan. I was happy to find out that when using the plan your tip is included. That made it a little easier to stomach the 2 credit "cost" for breakfast. Our meal came within 30 minutes, and I had the waiter set it up on the small tables by the couch since my computer and electronics mess occupied the larger table.

The food was fantastic!  I am so glad that I had saved the dinning credits to order this for breakfast, everything was simply delicious. The apricot brioche stuffed french toast was as good as I had hoped that it would be with apricot preserves oozing out of the flavorful toast.  I'm not a huge french toast fan, but this was simply amazing.  I had been expecting dried out bland potatoes, but what came were perfectly prepared and seasoned, they were fresh and steamy.  The omelet was fluffy and flavorful, everything was just perfect.  Oh, the view from my in room dining... pretty swank all on it's own.

However, as with most in room dining experiences, the price was expensive and not only does Disney tack on a special delivery charge, they also require a tip of 18% for the waiter.  When using the Disney Dining Plan, Room Service uses two table service credits, so it is NOT a very economical option if you're trying to get the most value out of the Disney Dining Plan. 

This experience was a total splurge for us, but it turned out to be my favorite breakfast of the trip, being that we at at Kona Cafe' and Cape May Cafe' that's saying a LOT. We had a trip full of amazing breakfasts.  I know that it was an expensive meal, and wasn't an economical use of my credits, but it was so easy and delicious.  I can assure you next time we're at Kidani, we'll be ordering room service for breakfast again.  It was so, so worth it.
