Starbucks (Traveler’s Cafe)
Upon the shutdown of the beloved Fountain View Starbucks location in Epcot due to renovations, the park was macchiato-less for a few short months in 2019. However, around Christmas time, Epcot opened their new Traveler’s Cafe, featuring a modern-Starbucks look on the Rose Walk path near the Canada side of the World Showcase entrance.
As with all Starbucks locations in Disney World, this is a great stop for your morning coffee, since you can use snack credits from your meal plan here! Starbucks is one place you can’t go wrong for Epcot breakfast because they offer uniform food options throughout the park, and the world.

Best Breakfast Near Epcot
Bon Voyage Breakfast Trattoria Al Forno
The Bon Voyage Breakfast at Trattoria Al Forno is definitely one worth seeing if you’re willing to go outside of Epcot to Disney’s Boardwalk, an entertainment, dining, and shopping area just a (hop, skip,) and a boat ride away from Epcot!
Characters are only present during breakfast, so it’s an ideal stop on your breakfast in Epcot (or near it) adventure! Bon Voyage breakfast brings you two of the best couples in Disney: Rapunzel and Flynn Rider (Eugene), along with Ariel and Prince Eric!
To start, they bring you a variety of pastries, one resembling an oyster with a pearl on top, and one in the shape of the sun from Tangled. Entrees you may pick from are named on theme, such as Flynn’s Feast, Tangled Eggs (Highly recommend!), Swimmer’s Delight, Ursula’s Cauldron, etc.
This character dining experience is one of the best, as Rapunzel and Flynn Rider are two of the most lively characters, and will be sure to get you laughing! PS: If you ask Flynn Rider what’s in his satchel, he will show you Rapunzel’s crown!
The neat thing not everyone knows about the Boardwalk, is there is so much more to do there other than eat! Check out all of the places to visit if you find yourself there on your next trip!
