Here are Disney’s details about what to expect on the buffet:

For breakfast, this spot will be serving up options like Brioche French Toast with Banana Foster SauceSalmon and Bagel Casserole, and Plant-based Frittata with tomato jam. As the day goes on and Minnie and the gang come out to play, the buffet will switch over to tons of yummy plates, including the Plant-based Roasted Mushroom Farro RisottoSlow-roasted Crispy Pork Belly with Guava glaze, and Shrimp and Bacon Mac & Cheese.
