Rope dropping Disney’s Hollywood Studios is a must if you want to ride many of the Disney Park’s attractions with a minimal wait. The typical rope-drop attractions are Slinky Dog Dash, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. Guests plan to ride these attractions as soon as the Disney Park opens. Those Guests staying in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel can also use Early Theme Park Entry to take advantage of an extra thirty minutes in Disney’s Hollywood Studios each morning.
After an early morning of riding the top attractions in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you’ll likely feel peckish. But where should you stop for breakfast? Here are all the Disney restaurants we dine in when spending a morning at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Hollywood & Vine
If you want to combine your breakfast experience with some Disney friends, then Hollywood & Vine is the place to dine. The breakfast buffet is served from 8:30 a.m. through 10:30 a.m. daily. Guests can visit the buffet as often as they like to fill up on pastries, Mickey waffles, eggs, breakfast meat, breakfast potatoes, and more. Visit the omelet station to place your custom order, or help yourself to entrees, including Eggs Benedict and the salmon and bagel casserole.
While enjoying breakfast, Disney Junior stars will visit your table for autographs, photos, and many magical moments. You can expect to see Vampirina, Fancy Nancy, Doc McStuffins, and Roadster Goofy. Hollywood & Vine is ideal for dining if you have young Disney Junior fans at your party. Make an advance dining reservation before your Disney vacation to secure your experience at Hollywood & Vine in the Echo Lake area of the Disney Park.
How does a plate of Mickey waffles with fresh blueberries, whipped cream, and syrup sound for breakfast? Visit Hollywood Scoops at the top of Sunset Boulevard to place your order. Freshly brewed Joffrey’s Coffee is also served here, as well as a Mimosa to start your morning off right. Hollywood Scoops is a great place to stop after a morning ride on The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror or Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster starring Aerosmith.
The Market is a great place to stop any time of day. It’s where to get your hands on Jack-Jack’s Num Num Cookie, famous from The Incredibles (2004). The Disney snack is a perfect size to share or to eat yourself. It’s served warm and filled with chocolate chips. Pick up yours for $6.19 from the Market in Pixar Place. Stop by on your way in or out of Toy Story Land.
If you intend on spending your morning in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, then Ronto Roasters is the restaurant to visit for breakfast. The Disney restaurant opens at 8 a.m. for Guests with Early Theme Park Entry and offers quick-service dining. The breakfast menu includes wraps, overnight oats, and fruit. Specialty drinks are also available to order, with and without alcohol.
The Trolley Car Cafe
The Trolley Car Cafe is located on Hollywood Boulevard, where Starbucks Coffee is served in Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park. Stop by to pick up your morning coffee, breakfast sandwiches, and a selection of pastries. Don’t be surprised if there is a line at The Trolley Car Cafe. You should stop here once Early Theme Park Hours has ended to maximize your extra time in the Disney Park.
Woody’s Lunch Box
Are you planning to visit Toy Story Land in Disney’s Hollywood Studios first? Doing so will allow you to ride Slinky Dog Dash and Toy Story Mania! with shorter line times than other times of the day. After riding the Disney attractions, you’ll have worked up an appetite. The good news is that you don’t have to venture too far to stop for breakfast. Woody’s Lunch Box opens at 8:30 a.m. The menu features breakfast bowls, Totchos, grilled cheese, BBQ beef brisket, and other sandwiches. A raspberry lunch box tart makes for a great snack or dessert too.
