Room service is swift and well presented. We were hoping for more desserts though!
The room service menu is hidden in the Disney book on the desk. You may not think to look through it unless you are really interested in the history of the Disney brand. The menu is in the back of this book, though there is no indication that it would be there.
Meal delivery takes between 30 and 45 minutes, sometimes less. The servers answer the phone promptly and take your order. Even if you call to make changes, it is a speedy service.
Breakfast must be ordered by 3am by hanging your selections on the outside handle of your door, or by calling room service. You may also choose the time it will be delivered. Choose from juices, cold cereal, breads, pastries, jams, honey, margarine or butter, cream cheese and other beverages like milk, coffee, and tea.
For appetizers, Disney offers a bunch of salads and soups. You can order a Caesar or a Nicoise salad, creamy tomato or chicken noodle soup. There is a selection of international cheeses and a fresh fruit bowl, as well as hot and cold sandwiches like a BLT, turkey and cheese baguette, tomato mozzarella panini, chicken and a guacamole fajita.
For a fuller meal, there is some typical American fare like cheesburgers, hot dogs, mac and cheese, buffalo wings, pizzas of different sizes, a steak sandwich and a salmon steak too.
The chicken fajita and the pizza were our favorites. They were not overly large like some of the selections, but enough to satisfy our hunger.
Dessert we felt was a little lacking in choice. There are only two options: big island cookie and an oatmeal raisin cookie. You can order some snack desserts though, like M&Ms, popcorn, peanuts, and cashews.
For in-room service, you can order from the full wine and cocktail menu.
In addition there are some drink packages to consider:
*Six domestic beers: Budweiser, Bud Light, Coors Light, and Miller Lite
*Six imported beers: Heineken, Amstel Light, Becks, and Corona
*Three imported and three domestic
*Six 16 oz bottles of Evian mineral water
*24, 16 oz bottles of Evian mineral water
Prices are available upon request. These packages are essentially a substitute for having a stocked mini-bar.
