Yacht Club Captain's Grille Breakfast Review

This location brings back so many great memories for me, so anytime I can eat here I will jump at the chance! Working here, I have tried many different items on the menu, but I definitely have my favorites. If I had to pick one time to eat here, I would easily pick breakfast. They have an ala-carte menu as well as a breakfast buffet, so there really is something for everyone here.

The restaurant opens at 7:30 am, ala-carte breakfast menu ends at 11:00am, and the buffet ends at 11:30am when they switch over to lunch. This is one place that you typically can get a table by walking up, but reservations will reduce your wait time if it is busier than usual. I went right when they opened and was seated right away.

We always recommend having a reservation, it will make everything easier for all parties involved.

The buffet here is wonderful and has some yummy options, but I don’t typically eat enough (in the morning) to justify getting the buffet. The price is around $23 for adults. I opt for something from the ala-carte menu, more specifically the dark chocolate waffles. There are three smaller waffles with espresso-mascarpone cream and dried cherry compote on top. I am not a huge fan of cherries, so I get them with strawberries instead. These waffles are extremely rich and I can only eat 2 of them! But they are absolutely delicious. The price is $13.00, AP discount is available.

Captain's Grille is under refurb from May till fall 2017 to shrink the size of the location. It is unknown at this point if the menu will be changing. During this time, they will be temporarily moving to Ariel’s on the Beach Club side. They will not have the breakfast buffet available while they are at the temporary location.  I’m excited to see what changes come to this location, I’m sure they will only help improve upon an already great sit down option.

Captain’s Grille is also open for lunch and dinner, the menus are similar in style with a good amount of seafood options. Have you ever ate breakfast at the Captain's Grille? Let us know what your favorite menu item is in the comments!



As a little girl, I went to Disneyland a few times, but my true love of Disney sparked my freshman year of college. I had the chance to do a quick weekend trip to Disneyland with two friends. During this trip, I fell completely back in love with the entirety of the Walt Disney Company. It was then a few months later, my family ventured to the opposite coast and visited WDW. Here I met a CP, who inspired me to start my own Disney Journey. A few years later, I can’t get enough of Disney (ask anyone who knows me)!

I have been extremely blessed to become a Disneyland AP holder, Walt Disney World AP holder, go on a Disney Cruise, and visit Hong Kong Disneyland. In 2018, I will be visiting Disneyland Paris. I plan on eventually visiting Tokyo Disneyland and Shanghai Disneyland.

I love all things Disney food, Disney merch, and Disney entertainment. You can usually find me in the park, drinking a coke and waiting for a show or parade. If you ever see me, be sure to say hello! I love making new Disney Friends.
