Non-park breakfast options with DVC booth nearby?

Hi All,

I'm taking a red-eye in January. I should arrive on property at about 8:30am.

I'm staying off-site, and have no interest hanging out off site waiting for my room to open, for obvious reasons.

My only plan for the day is to try to sign up for a DVC tour that day.




Where should I head, to:

1. Sign up for a DVC tour, with highest chances for good incentives (hoping for FP+ and gift card)

2. Get breakfast


The Springs was the natural choice, but I want to be sure I'm considering other options.

Kona cafe - tonga toast would be my vote on property. I believe there is DVC down in the main lobby.

Trattoria Al Forno at the Boarwalk. The Character breakfast is great, but they also offer a non-character room with the same food at a reduced price.

OK, I have never tried the Tonga Toast, and I have been pretty close before....And I love the Poly...so this sounds like a great choice. I did see a DVC booth there in August.



Ms. Lydia, I'm going to look at TaF breakfast menu. Is there a DVC booth in the area that you know of?

There is a DVC table in the Boardwalk lobby. If you decide on the Tonga Toast, it's also available at Captain Cooks.

I think there are DVC booths in pretty much every Disney resort - they don't miss an opportunity to sell it.

However, reading your post, I couldn't help but wonder whether it's worth you booking one more in advance, rather than on the day? I have no idea, as it's been years since we bought in (proud and very happy owners since 2002!), but if you're planning on taking a tour later that day, I don't know whether they'd be full for the day or not? Just throwing it out there...

Cheryl, there is no way I will ever be a DVC owner, though I certainly would love a guarantee of a regular disney trips...I am interested in the tour just as an activity, and to benefit from the incentives. My thinking is that if I book in advance, i will be less likely to get the maximum incentives possible. And if I can't get the tour that day, i will schedule for 2 days later, when I have another non-park day. Thoughts?

Ah, if you have another non-park day, then that would work...

You could eat at the Contemporary as I believe they have a DVC booth as well. There's the Wave, Chef Mickey's and Contempo Cafe (the QS) to choose from.

My friend, a DVC member was visiting here. She added us to her reservation. We booked a tour for the next day. To qualify for the tour incentives we had to be staying on site. We got a $75 digital gift card and theee fast passes. There was only one time I did a tour without having an on site reservation . That was by doing a group presentation. Afterwards I met with a guide. Hopefully you can do the tour and get the incentive without staying on site.

Ahhh, good info. I might not qualify in that case. Well, it's worth checking into at least. I won't count on it. Thank you!

There is a touring room/suite right on the boardwalk....open house type with a CM there to answer questions.
If I remember correctly it is past the Big River Grille & Brewing Works..
It is a BWVs designed room.

I wouldn't mind stopping in there just for fun one day, but my main goal for this trip is INCENTIVES. I want to maximize my chance at a gift card, of course, and then I really would like those extra FP+ folks often get when they take a tour. I'm going to try to experience every ride and walk through at MK on a Sunday with hours 8am-8pm, sort of a marathon. I'm gonna need all the help I can get!
