One of the best ways to make sure that guests can experience as much as possible while in Walt Disney World is by taking advantage of early mornings and arriving at the parks bright and early. Not only are the temperatures lower, but the crowd levels are also significantly lower, making it a great time to enjoy popular attractions and more in less time. In order for guests to be able to make sure that they can last all day in the parks, it’s very important that they eat and luckily there are plenty of great options to choose from offering up a wide array of breakfast bites. Here are some of the top quick-service dining locations to enjoy during a morning in any of the four Disney Parks!
NOTE: Currently, several breakfast options are unavailable with Walt Disney World’s phased reopening. You’ll want to visit Disney’s website to ensure the breakfast experience you are seeking is available during your planned visit.
1. Gaston’s Tavern
Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom is one of the first places that many guests head in the morning thanks to popular attractions like Peter Pan’s Flight and the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. Nearby is Gaston’s Tavern which brings guests into the hangout of a favorite Disney villain, complete with antlers in all of the decorating! Open bright an early, Gaston’s Tavern sells pastry items such as croissants and macarons in addition to the decadent Warm Cinnamon Roll which is large enough to share. Guests can also enjoy other options including a Fruit and Cheese Picnic Platter, Hummus, Mini Babybel Cheese, Celery and Carrot Sticks, and the favorite LeFou’s Brew.
2. Sleepy Hollow
Another great quick-service breakfast option in the Magic Kingdom can be found just over the walkway bridge that connects the hub with Liberty Square. Sleepy Hollow is housed inside a charming brick building and guests can enjoy their breakfasts in a small courtyard or along a walkway that both offer stunning views of Cinderella Castle. In addition to select coffee and beverage options, guests can dig into freshly made waffles and opt for toppings including Sweet-and-Spicy Chicken, Fresh Fruit and Chocolate-Hazelnut Spread, or Strawberries and Whipped Cream. Those looking for a particularly savory and indulgent breakfast can also order the Foot-Long Corn Dog that is served with house-made chips.
3. Be Our Guest Restaurant
NOTE: Currently, Be Our Guest is available only as a table-service option for lunch and dinner during the park’s phased reopening. We hope it will be available once again as a quick-service option for breakfast and lunch in the near future!
One of the most popular dining location in the Magic Kingdom is unique in that it serves up quick-service meals for breakfast and lunch and full-service meals for dinner. Be Our Guest Restaurant gives guests the chance to actually enter into the Beast’s Castle from Beauty and the Beast and dine on French-inspired cuisine in iconic settings. While breakfast is a quick-service meal, guests should still plan on making a reservation as Be Our Guest Restaurant is very popular.
