[QUOTE=Soundgod;1093618]I’m awaiting Papa’s reply about what went wrong at breakfast.[/QUOTE]
Sorry about that. Yesterday, I had to fly from Tampa to Seattle, and then drive 2 1/2 hours to Yakima… So needless to say, it was a LONG travel day. :pinch:
As I mentioned, dinner at Boma’s was fantastic, everything ran smoothly and the lines moved along. But during breakfast, we showed up 15 min early before our scheduled ADR’s, and we ended up waiting an hour before they actually sat us. In my entire experience of dining at Disney, I have never waited THAT long beyond my scheduled reservation. Even though we were starving, we were patient and blew it off.
Next, when we were finally seated, we waited at least 15 minutes for our server to show up to ask us for our drinks. That’s pretty much all a server needs to do at Boma, is take a drink order and bring over the drinks (aside from refills, and bringing a check because they have bussers picking up the used plates).
Then, we proceeded to wait in very long lines for pretty much anything and everything. Carved meat, the various eggs & breakfast meats, and the longest line of them all, the omelette line. What surprised me about the omelette line was the fact that with all of the kitchen help available, they had only one gentleman cooking up omelettes! You would think that management would notice the 20+ people waiting in line and in order to alleviate said lines, they would put more people on the omelette station!
And to top it off, there were quite a few people trying to cut the line by acting ignorant. “Oh, I didn’t realize that was the line!”
I actually had a run in with an older gentleman trying to do the same thing and he ended up getting in line behind me (which surprisingly, the gentleman behind me didn’t say a word).
Finally, when we had wrapped up with our respective breakfasts, we waited, and waited, and waited for the server to acknowledge our existence to bring us the damage (we basically gave up on the notion of a refill of our beverages). And we were not the only ones. Everyone in the lady’s section was doing the same thing… Waiting on their bill! We all started making comments about it and after maybe 20 minutes or so, she finally made her grand appearance and took another 15 to 20 minutes to bring back the final receipt (I paid via cc).
Because I used my Tables in Wonderland, she received her 18% and I wish TIW would allow one the ability to reduce the gratuity amount… Because she deserved no more than 10%!
So while the food quality itself was good (not awesome like Spoodles used to be), we hated breakfast at Boma’s because the entire restaurant operations was completely unorganized, unlike dinner at Boma’s. And I have eaten at 1900 PF as well as Cape May where both were completely “insane” but yet very well organized… So I have only those two buffet breakfasts spots to base this experience off of…
So never again… :dry:
