The Wave - Omelet Your Way Gluten Free

*This gluten free dining experience took place in July 2018.

Breakfast at The Wave

The Wave, located in Disney’s Contemporary Resort, is a table service that is often overlooked by Disney guests. Tucked away on the first floor of the Contemporary Resort, The Wave is a bit of a hidden gem when it comes to table service dining. Both Brandon and I really enjoy dinner at The Wave, and I have found breakfast to be equally solid. On this particular occasion, I made an early Sunday morning trip by myself to the Magic Kingdom and stopped by The Wave for breakfast. I hadn’t been for breakfast in quite a while and thought it would be great to check it out again.

Atmosphere

In some of my dinner reviews, I have gone into more detail about the restaurant’s atmosphere. As you can guess from the name, the restaurant reflects both waves and New American cuisine.

I always appreciate that the restaurant’s entrance looks like an artistic wave.

I was seated in a small table in the main dining room. As you can see, the wave theme is found in the ceiling and on the chairs. I also like the modern carpet and colorful decor.

The Food

Of course, what I was really at The Wave for was the food! At breakfast this restaurant offers both an a la carte menu and a buffet. With this in mind, I was brought the allergy-friendly breakfast menu and the allergen guide for the buffet. At any time, you can also speak with a chef to discuss options, including having items from the buffet brought directly from the kitchen to avoid cross-contamination.

On this visit, I opted to order from the a la carte menu. There were quite a few options on it, and the chefs at The Wave are very good at customizing too.

I decided to order the Omelet Your Way with Your Choice of Ham, Bacon, Mushroom, Onion, Tomato, Cheese, or Spinach with Breakfast Potatoes. This is marked safe for Gluten/Wheat, Peanut/Tree Nut, and Soy Allergies. It can also be made dairy free upon request.

Overall, I really enjoyed my omelet. I ordered mine with ham, onion, spinach, and topped with Tillamook Cheddar (since I’ve reintroduced dairy back into my diet). The omelet was well-cooked and chock full of ingredients. The breakfast potatoes were also quite good and seasoned well. I could have gone without all the peppers and onions, as they weren’t as cooked down as I’d like them to be, but overall, the potatoes were a solid breakfast side.

I also asked for gluten free toast with my breakfast. The non-special diets version of this entree comes with a biscuit, so it’s worth asking for the side of toast because it was not listed as an included side. I wasn’t charged extra for it, so that was a nice bonus too.

On previous visits, I was served Udi’s Gluten Free bread at both breakfast and dinner. But, on this visit, I was served Ener-G brand bread which is gluten free, dairy free, and vegan (and covers many other special dietary needs too). I also asked for a side of Earth Balance vegan buttery spread for the toast. Though I do eat some dairy now, believe it or not I still prefer the Earth Balance.

The toast itself was quite good, and I have to say that I’ve been impressed with the Ener-G bread that I’ve been served recently. Disney seems to be adding it to more restaurants in place of Udi’s Gluten Free bread. And, I have found that the Ener-G bread tastes better than what I remembered.

The Wave - Iced Tea to Go

On my way out, my server Victor offered me an iced tea to go. How adorable is the Mickey straw he gave me to go with the drink? Talk about a magical way to end a delicious breakfast.

Overall

The Wave consistently offers a delicious breakfast with a variety of options. Although I did not get them on this visit, guests can speak with a chef about ordering The Wave’s signature sweet potato pancakes gluten free (and dairy free) too. Plus, their options for a la carte and all-you-care-to-enjoy style dining give you plenty to choose from. You definitely won’t go hungry. If dining at a more low-key restaurant is your speed, you’ll appreciate The Wave’s more relaxed and quieter atmosphere too. This is a restaurant that I’ll continue to visit for an occasional breakfast on a lazy Sunday or before heading into the parks.
