The nearly perfect WDW breakfast.


I firmly believe that Boma at Disney’s Animal Kingdom resort offers one of the BEST breakfasts anywhere on the WDW property (perhaps even Disney resorts world-wide). Their selection of American and African inspired food is excellent. If you’re an adventurous eater, you’ll find something you like. If you like your breakfast basic, you’ll find something you like. And either way, be sure to get the house juice and the chocolate chip muffins.

boma-logoOne of the best things on the buffet has to be the made-to-order omelets. Even if you ask them to cut the cheese in half (or 1/4th, as I do, in my attempt to make it much healthier) its one of the best omelets on property. However, ordering the omelet is anything but “Disney.”

If you haven’t been there, then imagine this: a long spread of buffet options spanning a VERY large room. A line so long it can easily accommodate the max. capacity of guests dining at the same time as you. But the smack dab in the middle of that line, in an area where the space behind you thins out as a decorative half-height wall curves in toward the buffet line … is the omelet station. A space that gets about 5 feet wide and is often overflowing with people trying to get their omelet from one or two chefs trying hard to manage the whole process and keep the large list of ingredients in order for each guest’s individual order.

Why? Why so little space? Why so much chaos? Why do the cast members have to work so hard in this one little “flaw” of an otherwise near perfect restaurant?

I don’t know, but I think I have a simple fix that could go a long way. The Which Wich Menu.

This little piece of brilliance is a simple, integral part of the Which Wich restaurant (which is like a make-your-own Potbelly, Subway kinda place). Fill out your name, the ingredients you want and your meal is made.

Boma needs a Which Wich menu for their omelets. A simple menu that would sit at your table and list all of the options for the omelet. It would also have an area where you could fill in your name and the table number, which would either be pre-stamped on the menu or easily identifiable from where you were sitting. You fill in the menu, hand it to the chef (so he can confirm you have your table # on there) and then you walk away. A few moments later, your server appears with your perfectly made omelet. You then sit back, enjoy and think to yourself: wow, Boma just went from near-perfect to perfect — thanks to Netcot and Which Wich.

Oddly enough, I’ve suggested this to a manager there once two years ago and was told “thanks, we’ll consider it.” But apparently Which Wich has the rights to a patent describing a menu with fill-in-the-blank options, because it has yet to appear at WDW (kidding, they don’t hold the patent on that – to my knowledge, there is no patent for such a thing).

So there you go… my simple imagineering way to make a nearly perfect WDW breakfast spot, “perfect.”

Wow that is neat seeing that an idea that you mentioned 2 years ago be put in at last, can’t wait to listen to the next podcast hear you soon Van!!

I go to Boma at least once a trip to the World and I have to agree it is one of the best if not the best on property. I agree with the suggestion you have for the Omelet station but that is way to much paper work for the cast members (granted cant be sure if they can actually read sometimes) to have to handle at a time especially when they get busy.

We have a sushi restaurant near us that does something similar.

What COULD work would be the same idea but a bank of four or five computer screens – go to it, type in your table number and order, it gets sent to the chefs and not only will it be fast, but green, also.

Pretty! This has been an incredibly wonderful article.
Many thanks for providing these details.

Everything is very open with a clear description of
the challenges. It was really informative. Your website is extremely helpful.
Many thanks for sharing!

This is a good tip especially to those fresh to the blogosphere.

Simple but very accurate info… Thanks for sharing this one.
A must read post!

Hey! Do you know if they make any plugins to help
with Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good results.
If you know of any please share. Thanks!

Hi mates, fastidious post and fastidious arguments commented at this
place, I am actually enjoying by these.

I think this is one of the most significant
info for me. And i am glad reading your article. But want to remark on some general things,
The web site style is ideal, the articles is really great : D.
Good job, cheers

What’s up to all, the contents present at this site are in fact remarkable for people knowledge, well, keep up the good work fellows.

An early decision you must make is how you want to access to the stock market.
If you want to be a passive trader and leave the management
to an industry professional, mutual funds are good options that
provide automatic portfolio diversficiation.
If you are more of a do-it-yourselfer, then picking and trading your own stocks is possible too.
Splitting your investment between both is a choice that
some do as well.

I love the best stock trading software

80% of the world’s supply of diamonds is harvested from the mines of South America. But if you want unique ring for your beloved and want to add some extra magic to your engagement then you can design your own diamond ring for your beloved. Majority of men like diamond rings that usually come in thick bands with stones, mostly diamonds.

I was suggested this website by way of my cousin.
I am no longer certain whether or not this post is written through him as no
one else understand such specific approximately my problem.
You’re incredible! Thanks!

When someone writes an post he/she retains the idea of a user in his/her mind that how
a user can know it. So that’s why this piece of writing is amazing. Thanks!

Whoa! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a entirely different topic but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Excellent choice of colors!

You can use the stock prices to track earnings.

Short-term market behavior is generally based on fear, enthusiasm, news, and rumors.

Long-term market behavior is mainly comprised of company earnings.
These earnings can be used to determine whether
or not a stock’s price will rise, drop or go completely sideways.

The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad
and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.

My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with
someone!

Hiya, i am a blogger same as you, and was curious
if you by chance tried those addthis.com follow this buttons and
if they will be any good. I noticed they will load quite a bunch of code, so i am not sure if its
well worth adding them, due the quite a bit increase of KB of the total
filesize. Have you ever tried it? I am very interested to hear what you think about that?

I would highly appreciate if you could sent me a message to trishawoodall@inbox.com if you have any experience with those addons.
Thx .. btw, luv your site ever since!

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your blog?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.

Maybe you could space it out better?

Hey there are using WordPress for your site platform?
I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and set
up my own. Do you need any html coding knowledge to make your
own blog? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Good day! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about creating
my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Thank you

I run a baking blog where I share my tasty recipes and secrets that
I know from my many years of creating meals. I try actually hard to improve my blog no less than three
times a week. I’ve had the blog for around ninety days, which I suppose is a fairly good amount of time. However, my blog doesn’t
get lots of visitors . When I look for my posts on Aol,
it is certainly challenging for me to find them. I
found your blog on the 1st page of Aol while i searched for The nearly perfect WDW
breakfast. | NETCOT.com, as a result i believe you must be
a professional, care to share some help and advice with me?

Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog
stand out. Please let me know where you got your theme.

With thanks

Wow! I’m genuinely enjoying the design and style of your weblog. Are you using a custom made template or is this readily available to all individuals? If you really don’t want to say the name of it out in the public,

Excellent post. I will be facing some of these
issues as well..

It’s the best time to make some plans for the longer term and it is time to be happy.

I have learn this submit and if I could I desire to recommend you some attention-grabbing issues
or advice. Maybe you can write next articles relating to this article.

I desire to read even more issues approximately it!
