The Wave is located on the first floor of The Contemporary, past the registration desk to the far left. Bathrooms are located just outside The Wave and features the BEST paper towels ever--in the bathrooms, not the restaurant.
The entrance has a slight decline with a check-in desk at the end along with waiting areas located to the right. We had a reservation for breakfast. Advanced Dining Reservations (ADR) are recommended for this table-service restaurant. We arrived early and were seated right away.
We weren't staying at The Contemporary, but it was still easy to get there. We took the bus from our resort to the Magic Kingdom and then took the side walk to the right of the Magic Kingdom entrance that leads to The Contemporary. We could have hopped on the monorail, too. From our perspective, the walk from the bus drop off to the monorail station is almost the same distance as walking directly to The Contemporary from the bus drop off. The only downside was that since the security/bag checks have been moved, we had to have our bags checked and go through security, even though we weren't heading into the park. We told security guards where we were going and it didn't make a difference. There was another bag check/security check on the side walk for guests walking to Magic Kingdom. We were able to walk past that check as we were walking away from the park.
The buffet features many breakfast yummies including some of the best grits the husband has ever eaten and sweet potato pancakes. Cold cereal is available just opposite the buffet as a selection. Hot syrup is dispensed into small pitchers for the pancakes, Mickey waffles, and french toast.
Steel-cut oatmeal was also on the buffet. I wanted brown sugar and the waitress delivered it to the table. Other sugar packet choices were available on the table.
We also ordered the refillable mimosa--which allows for the original serving plus 2 refills for $18. A single mimosa was on the menu for $10.
