Dining Recon: The Market at Ale & Compass! [Tons of Food Pics!]

Breakfast, my friends!  It is time for breakfast!  Actually, speaking of “time”, once upon a time, finding a decent breakfast at Disney’s Yacht Club could present a bit of challenge.

Quite simply, it meant grabbing a snack-like “grab ‘n go” at the Ale & Compass Lounge, snagging a Table Service ADR at Captain’s Grille or, even, hiking all of the way over to Beach Club Marketplace at, well, Disney’s Beach Club Resort!

Well, those days are over, now, folks!  First, let me spill this … come mid-October (if you believe the two Cast Members that I asked), the Captain will retire in favor of the Yacht Club’s Ale & Compass Restaurant.  Stay tuned for its official opening!

In the meantime, you have to check out their new Quick Service – conveniently called The Market at Ale & Compass!  For instance, take a quick look at the layout and decor …

The side entrance takes you directly into Ale’s small seating area.

The main entrance takes you into what’s left of what used to be the Yacht Club’s gift shop.

The Quick Service, itself, is directly to the left of the main entrance.

The market offers “tons” of hot and cold sandwiches, salads, snacks, beverages, and ice creams!

Pre-made hot sandwiches are available for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  Check out the menus and breakfast display “models” …

Gourmet Oatmeal.

Veggie Egg Wrap.

Turkey, Egg, and Cheese.

Chicken Panini.

Italian Panini.

Ham & Cheese on a Pretzel Roll.

Vegetable Panini.

Anyway, what did I eat?  I sampled Ale’s Ham and Cheddar Breakfast Sandwich.  Sadly, although its egg and ham tasted fine, I found the pretzel roll to be a big disappointment.

The hot sandwiches can be found in Ale’s Hot Display Case.  Notice the plates underneath?  Grab one.

The top was rock hard as if it were old and stale.  The bottom was soggy … likely from the grease put forth by the ham during the cooking process.

Folks, I don’t want to discourage you from stopping by this great new spot.  Frankly, one poorly prepared sandwich does not make or break a restaurant.

My advice?  Try a panini for lunch or dinner.  Alternatively, grab one of their cold sandwiches or salads.  No matter which way you go – a meal or simply a snack – dining at Disney’s Yacht Club has just taken a huge upgrade!  Great job, Disney.  Way to go!
