Best Magic Kingdom Breakfast at Disney

The restaurant has gone through some changes since 2019, but it is still a great place to have a hearty breakfast with a little bit of magic.
One of the big changes to this restaurant is that this dining experience was originally a buffet.
There was a set-up on one side of the restaurant where guests could help themselves to a plethora of delightful foods that were both familiar and a little different, including the ever-famous Mickey Waffles!
However, when the restaurant reopened after an extended closure in 2021, it was a table service restaurant with a prefixed menu with a family-style delivery.
Many of the same great foods are on the menu, including customizes egg scrambles and omelets, and fresh-baked pastries, and they have a plant-based menu, but now you don’t have to leave your seat to get the food you want!
But the real reason why this restaurant is one of the best places to get breakfast in Magic Kingdom is the character meet-and-greet! At this restaurant, your entire family can meet Winnie the Pooh and his friends! That’s right!
You can meet some familiar faces like Tigger, Piglet, Rabbit, and Eeyore, while you enjoy a warm breakfast! With the comeback of meet-and-greets, you’ll be able to hug all of your friends too on your next visit!
Sleepy Hollow is a quick-service restaurant located at the edge of Liberty Tree Square that blends in so well with the brick architecture that you may miss it upon first glance.
It is a great quick service that serves coffee, tea, and orange juice as well as breakfast sandwiches.
The fresh fruit waffle sandwich is a must-so at this location. Loaded with fresh berries, this fluffy waffle is drizzled with hazelnut spread and topped with whipped cream. It is so delicious and sweet, and a great way to start your day at the most magical place on earth!

Tucked away in the back of Fantasyland, Gaston’s Tavern is one of the best all-day menus that feature some mainstay breakfast items.
This quick service has both indoor and outdoor seating, completely themed around the animated Beauty and the Beast film. And yes, Gaston used antlers in his decorating.
The best item on the menu hands down is the Warm Cinnamon Roll. This Cinnamon Roll is big, fluffy, and loaded with a beautiful layer of frosting that makes this meal messy but delicious!
Pro Tip: If your Cinnamon Roll looks a little dry (because this does happen), ask a cast member for a side of icing to redress your bun. Plus, the earlier you get there, the fresher it will be.
Gaston’s Tavern is on our list of best restaurants for breakfast in Magic Kingdom!

Woody’s Lunchbox is one of the newer places to eat and have breakfast at Hollywood Studios.
Located in the Toy Story land area, this quick-service restaurant is well known for their loaded potato barrels (aka tater tots), and their tarts.

Best Breakfast at Disney Resorts
Ohana is a popular restaurant for its highly rate meals, so it makes sense as to why we would include this on our list of best places for breakfast in Disney.
Before the big closure, this restaurant was a character dining meal restaurant where characters like Mickey and Minnie along with some of their friends would stop by your table and interact with your party.
However, when the restaurant reopened in 2021, all signs of character dining were gone and have yet to return as of May 2022.
The food has returned, and it is still highly reviewed by guests!
Many people are a fan of the Hua Paka, which is a delectable breakfast skillet, as well as the Uala Kahiki, which is a loaded breakfast skillet that highlights fried potatoes.
Another big draw here is the POG juice. POG juice, is a combination of pineapple, orange, and guava juice, that makes a beverage not overly sweet and not too tart. It is a fan favorite and a must try at this restaurant.
