“I went to Orlando in 2013, and for the breakfast buffet, almost all they had were pastries. There was no bread, no oatmeal, no yogurt. There were, however, cinnamon rolls, brownies, banana bread, donuts, and all kinds of other sweet treats. The closest thing to what I’d consider normal breakfast food was these cereal bars, but they too are packed with more sugar than anything you can find here.”
