Skip breakfast at your resort to get to the parks before they open? That’s my family’s method. But we are always searching for that perfect breakfast spot to fuel up once we scan our tickets in.
Quick service inside Disney theme parks is kind of like a treasure hunt. Lunch usually starts being served around 10:30-11 am, so most locations inside the parks don’t serve breakfast. Here are some of the available quick service locations at Walt Disney World inside the theme parks!
MAGIC KINGDOM PARK
Sleepy Hollow – Liberty Square
One of the best breakfasts in all of Walt Disney World can be found in Liberty Square. Just over the bridge sits this to-go window. Sleepy Hollow serves Mickey waffles in the morning. They even have an option that includes strawberries and whipped cream!
But the crème de la crème is the Nutella and fruit waffle. LOOK OUT, FOLKS. Start your morning off right with this delicious plate, sitting at a table with a gorgeous view of Cinderella Castle over the water. Nothing is more magical than this.
The Friar’s Nook – Fantasyland
The Friar’s Nook doesn’t get the love it deserves. Located next to Princess Fairy Tale Hall, this is such a great breakfast spot at Magic Kingdom. Their menu is limited, but it sure is mighty. They offer a bacon, egg, and cheese croissant, as well as sausage gravy tots and some cinnamon sugar doughnut holes. All of the bases are covered.
Westward Ho – Frontierland
This unassuming cart in Frontierland throws a great breakfast party! They also serve a bacon, egg, and cheese croissant, plus cinnamon sugar doughnut holes. This cart is located across from Country Bear Jamboree, so fittingly they serve a bear claw on their breakfast menu. Honestly, this theming is perfection.
PS. Head back here for lunch, too. They have candied bacon on a stick, jalapeño poppers, and even some corn dog nugs!
Gaston’s Tavern – Fantasyland
One of the memories that really sticks out of my time at Disney as as kid was getting one of those larger-than-life cinnamon rolls on Main Street USA. When the Main Street Bakery shifted to serving Starbucks products, this cinnamon roll disappeared. I was DEVASTATED. But pretty soon thereafter, the beloved sweet treat reappeared in Fantasyland.
Gaston’s Tavern is such a fun corner of the Forbidden Forest of Fantasyland that is often overlooked. Stop inside for a warm cinnamon roll that will change your life, maybe even a cold brew, and take a seat by Gaston’s throne.
Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie – France Pavilion
Looking for some authentic french pastries to break your fast? Head back to the France Pavilion in the World Showcase. This patisserie bakes their items fresh every morning and has so many options to choose from. There are plenty of pastries (naturally), as well as a bacon egg and cheese croissant and even a few quiches to choose from!
This is another corner where not many people will flock to right away, but they are missing out! This location gets much busier later in the day, so go and enjoy the decadent food and peaceful atmosphere in the morning before the rush. Good luck choosing your dish!
Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe – Norway Pavilion
If you are up for a little bit of an adventures pastry moment for breakfast at EPCOT, head over to Norway. Right across from Akershus is this amazing bakery, where you can try traditional Norwegian specialties like kringla sweet pretzels, or the famous school bread! (The school bread is my favorite!) They also serve Joffrey’s coffee and cold brew here, so you can also get that caffeine addiction fed.
And for all of you adults out there – try the frozen viking coffee! It’s a sure-fire way to start out the day with a bang.
This location opens right at park-open, so grab a bite, and then head into the line for Frozen Ever After! This location is also open all day with the same menu, so be sure to stop by any time to try out these pastries!
DISNEY’S HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS
Woody’s Lunchbox – Toy Story Land
Tucked over in Toy Story Land is this adorably themed quick service restaurant. Here they serve a hearty breakfast bowl with potato barrels (tater tots) smothered in smoked brisket country gravy with scrambled eggs. My mouth is watering just thinking about it, honestly.
Woody’s Lunchbox is also known for making their own version of a Pop Tart. Their flavors change through the year depending on the season, so there is always something new to try! (Be sure to come back for their “totchos” later in the day. Nachos but with tater tots. Life changing.)
Aaaaand that’s about it for breakfast options here. Oga’s Cantina used to serve a couple of breakfast options, including oatmeal, but it does not look like they are doing that at the moment. Docking Bay 7 also opened with a breakfast menu, but they currently only serve lunch & dinner.
The Trolley Car Café serves Starbucks coffee and food, located halfway down Hollywood Boulevard to the right. Because this is the first food and beverage location passed in the parks, it is quite popular in the morning, so be aware of that. There is also a Joffrey’s cart at the exit of Tower of Terror that serves donuts and coffee if you would like something quicker!
DISNEY’S ANIMAL KINGDOM THEME PARK
Pongu Pongu – Pandora
Located just outside of Satu’li Canteen is this grab-and-go counter. There are a few food options, including a sausage and cheese biscuit. My personal favorite is the french toast sticks! Rope dropping Flight of Passage? Grab your food here before heading into the line!
Yak & Yeti Local Foods Cafe
Do not sleep on this quick service breakfast! Arguably one of the best quick service spots inside of a Disney park, this yummy stop is over in Asia close to Expedition Everest. They serve breakfast bowls, an egg white English muffin, and delicious hash brown bites! We like to ride Expedition Everest first thing in the morning, and then stop here for a bite. Because it is so far back in the park (and most people go to Pandora first), the lines are minimal!
