Yeah. Maybe you can get in a park? Or make a trip to another hotel with quick service? Bring a waffle maker? ;)

Thanks, obviously lazy searching on my part, because I completely missed that! So I guess Mickey Waffles are out of the question for this trip 🤪

The only other place is Barcelona Lounge and it has coffees, pastries and grab/go fruit, yogurt, juice, etc. You can also get some stuff for your room in Panchitos.

So we are staying at Gran Destino next week, I've never stayed at Coronado Springs before, but in looking around at what is open or not, I'm noticing that the only option for breakfast seems to be Rix Sports bar. Has anyone seen or heard of any other breakfast options at the resort since opening? I get that not everything will be open, just seems weird to not have some sort of quick service breakfast option...

Not really. The NBA used third-party vendors to assist with moving furniture they did not want and putting furniture they did want. Because of the bubble the third shift venders were not allowed to do work inside the bubble regardless of the amount of teams that were left. This means that Disney really could not begin resetting the rooms until all the teams are gone. Which was fine, while certainly not at the rack rate the NBA technically bought the entire Resort regardless of the number of rooms actually used.

OTOH, as teams that were knocked out of the tournament left, Disney had the opportunity to re-set those rooms until they only had to accommodate two teams for a week.

I'm sure the hotel has a fair amount of work to do. Beds were removed from some rooms, Toledo was converted to a player lounge, some rooms were used as training rooms.

Rix is third party though

It does appear that everything reopening is the Disney-owned restaurants minus Toledo.

Wondering if the quick service isn't opening because it's owned by another restaurant group - maybe they haven't hired people back yet or are waiting for union stuff...who knows.

This is what someone reported seeing on HUB (?): Dhalia Lounge opens at 4:30 until 10 or midnight, not sure Barcelona - opens morning only until 11 am I think? Probably not many people day drinking in the lobby to keep it open all day Three Bridges opens at 4:30 until 10 or midnight, not sure Rix Bar/Grill- I think breakfast hrs, lunch hrs and dinner, but I'm not sure of exact times Siestas - I don't know times

I saw the official list released somewhere. The answer appears to be all the bars and Three Bridges. I don't even think the Quick Service is opening at first.
