11 Delicious Disney World Breakfast Places to Try

11 Delicious Disney World Breakfast Places to Try

Finding the Best Breakfasts in Disney World is no easy task. What breakfast foods do you like? How many people are in your travel party? Are you in a rush or do you need to ease into your morning? So many things to be considered! How do you know which one to pick? Here’s our round-up of our favorite places to eat breakfast at Walt Disney World.

Breakfast at Disney World and Where to Find It

Getting breakfast at Walt Disney World is sometimes more trouble than it’s worth! Especially when you’re up against figuring out Disney Transportation, trying to get to the rides before lines get too long, and kids who may be dragging early in the morning. While we always love the alternative of just having granola bars in the resort room for a cheap breakfast at Disney, sometimes you need actual food! Here are the best places to eat breakfast at Disney World we’ve found so far!

Best Quick service restaurants Epcot

Best Quick service restaurants Epcot

Les Halles Boulangerie Pâtisserie | EPCOT France

Hands down our favorite quick breakfast at Disney World, this French Disney Quick Serve Restaurant features a variety of croissants, sandwiches, quiches, parfait, and breakfast-ready desserts. Everything you need for a great little meal to start your day. You can eat inside or outside and we love that this place in World Showcase tends to open early- like at 9 am. Making it the perfect location to have breakfast at EPCOT if you’re hoping to be close to the action when the rest of World Showcase opens at 11 am. Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie is also great for a light lunch, dinner, or snack!

tonga toast at the polynesian kona cafe

Kona Cafe | Disney’s Polynesian Resort

The Kona Cafe at the Polynesian Resort is home to the famous Tonga Toast! This French toast, stuffed with bananas and covered in cinnamon and sugar delicacy is definitely worth trying! We also love that you can get eggs, potatoes, French press, tea, and a mimosa flight. While we also love dinner at the Kona Cafe, nothing compares to grabbing breakfast at Kona before heading to Magic Kingdom for the day!

Breakfast at Trattoria al forno

Breakfast at Trattoria al Forno

Trattoria al Forno | Disney’s Boardwalk

You may know Trattoria al Forno for its fancy Italian dinners, its pizza, or the Bon Voyage Character Breakfast. But you can also grab breakfast without characters! If you know how to ask for it. If you’re looking for an amazing iced coffee, avocado toast, and all your basic omelet flair with a bit of Italian thrown in then this may just be your next breakfast stop. Check out our review of breakfast at Trattoria al Forno and why we think this is one of the best breakfasts at Disney World. 

disney character breakfasts

Crystal Palace | Magic Kingdom Park

The Disney World breakfast buffet options are varied, but we LOVE Crystal Palace! As a budget friendly Disney character breakfast at Magic Kingdom with Winnie the Pooh and Friends, the Crystal Palace at Magic Kingdom not only offers great food but it’s also a buffet style. So everyone in your party is sure to find something they love. And if you’re in the mood for ice cream, they have that too. Of course, if ice cream for breakfast isn’t your favorite, then they also have an omelet-making station where you can customize it to your heart’s delight.

Centertown Market | Caribbean Beach Resort

We get it. Disney Resort commissary food is generally all the same right? And how many Mickey waffles do you actually need? But at the Caribbean Beach Resort, the breakfast food is a whole lot different. Strawberry French toast with grilled potatoes, avocado salsa on toast, and of course all the basic breakfast foods you know and love. We highly recommend taking the time to visit the Caribbean Beach Resort. You can get here via the Disney Skyliner from either EPCOT or Hollywood Studios. 

fried green tomatoes at art smith homecomin disney springs

Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ Rise and Shine Brunch | Disney Springs

Looking for breakfast at Disney Springs? Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ Rise and Shine Brunch includes chicken and waffles, fried green tomatoes, and all sorts of southern cooking for breakfast. And if the cake is more your style, you can have hummingbird, coconut, and chocolate, among others. What we loved about this breakfast is that the food was just so darn good! Seriously worth another visit. Add a mimosa and feel free to stay awhile!

Grand Floridian Cafe | Grand Floridian Resort

The Grand Floridian Cafe is another one of the best breakfasts in Disney World. Mainly because you get views of the Grand Floridian Resort gardens, a super fresh breakfast; pancakes with fruit compote, omelets, french press coffee, and pastries. So many options! Read our full review of breakfast at the Grand Floridian Cafe.

Topolino's Terrace Breakfast

Mickey a La Art Breakfast at Topolino Terrace | Disney’s Riviera Resort

The newest rooftop dining experience at Disney World is at Disney’s Riviera Resort. The Mickey a la Art Breakfast is a character breakfast, featuring Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Daisy. This is an amazingly budget-friendly meal that easily makes our best breakfasts at Walt Disney World list. We love that there are plant-based dining options and indoor and outdoor seating. And a rooftop terrace for lounging to your heart’s content. 

Toy Story Land Woody's Lunch Box at Walt disney World Hollywood Studios Restaurant Review #woodyslunchbox #disneydining #toystoryland

Woody’s Lunch Box | Hollywood Studios

This egg and tater tot bowl is AMAZING and budget-friendly as a quick-serve breakfast in Toy Story Land at Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios. Especially for families that want something quick and easy before heading to the rides. You can also check out Woody’s Lunch Box for a yummy grilled cheese and tomato soup lunch. 

Breakfast Pizza at Ale and Compass Disney


Breakfast at Ale and Compass Yacht Club Walt Disney World

Ale and Compass | Disney’s Yacht Club Resort

Located in the Yacht Club on Disney’s Boardwalk, Ale and Compass is a budget-friendly option for breakfast ( and any other meal), when you’re looking for good table service at Walt Disney World. Including chocolate waffles and Apple french toast, alongside traditional options, you can even get a buffet breakfast here. We like the french pressed coffee and the fact that you can get your Breakfast To Go at Ale and Compass. Read our Breakfast at Ale and Compass Review for all the details. 

Yak and Yeti Quick Service Animal Kingdom

Yak and Yeti Local Cafe |  Animal Kingdom 

While we typically head straight for Creature Comforts at Animal Kingdom for some Starbucks coffee, we recently decided to give another eatery a try! With a selection of eggs, potatoes, sausage, and even sandwiches, the Yak and Yeti Local Cafe offers up a quiet seating environment away from the park entrance chaos, great food, and a Joffrey’s Coffee place nearby. Meaning we could grab our coffee, nice breakfast, and ease into the day! Bonus.
