Walt Disney World Announces Changes to Cape May Café and Ale & Compass Restaurant Menus

Cape May Café at Disney's Beach Club

Cape May Café and Ale & Compass Restaurant at Walt Disney World have announced changes to the menus.

Starting January 31, 2022, Ale & Compass Restaurant at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort will be offering a breakfast buffet like pastries, fresh fruit, yogurt parfaits, overnight oats, and house-made cheddar biscuits with country gravy.

It will also offer à la carte entrées, like Blueberry Bacon Pancakes (which sound delicious!).

It will also begin opening for lunch on that date, with dishes including Fish & Chips (with House-made Vinegar Chips and Lemon-Caper Tartar Sauce), Bacon and Vermont Cheddar Burger (with Caramelized Onion on a Parker House Bun with Applewood-smoked Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato, and Herbed Mayonnaise), and Lobster and Corn Chowder, along with some plant-based options.

Starting February 15, 2022, Cape May Café at Disney’s Beach Club Resort will transition from family-style breakfast and dinner service to buffet offerings for both meals.

The all-you-care-to-enjoy buffet breakfast with tasty items like pull-apart bread with vanilla sauce, beef hash, an omelet station, and of course, Mickey and Minnie waffles.

The dinner buffet will feature options like cornbread, seasonal harvest salad, seafood boil, Peel-n-Eat Shrimp, Cape May Clams, Oven Roasted Lemon Chicken, Slow-roasted Strip Loin, and a daily carving station. Guests can also upgrade their meal with Snow crab legs or even a whole lobster, both purchased by the pound.

It looks like more buffet-style eating is returning to Walt Disney World. Is this a change you’ve been waiting for from these restaurants, or do you prefer the family-style dining? Let us know in the comments.

  1. I usually like buffets since can sample small amounts of lots of things but concerned….too many people unvaccinated touchin g serving utensils

    Also does someone monitor mask wearing at buffet or is this unvaccinated person standing next to me breathing the virus out…Im hi risk so yes I wear a mask but nothing is 100%….

    1. Due to omicron being able to spread and infect regardless of vaccination status (CDC), high-risk individuals probably shouldn’t subject themselves to situations that may put themselves at an increased risk, but it’s your life and you have to decide what kind of life is worth living to you.

      The types of masks that do help are the 95%+ filtering masks(N95, KN9, etc.), have to be worn in a very specific way or they do not work to the rated 95%, and no one enforces them to be worn either. The cloth masks that people wear out and about do virtually nothing against virus spread, due to the inability to filter out the virus.

      One thing you can do is wear gloves at a buffet and don’t touch your face while you’re in public, that will protect you from the highest risk-factor while at something like a buffet. Also, there is some evidence that a booster helps slightly against the already mild symptoms of omicron, so that could be a possibility if you’re not boosted.
