Where to have a quick breakfast in Walt Disney World

Where to have a quick breakfast in Walt Disney World

During all our trips we have struggled massively to find somewhere quick and on the go to eat in Walt Disney World for breakfast.  We do many sit down character breakfasts, which do fill us up until after lunch, but when we don’t do them we can’t find anywhere!

Breakfasts in Disney

On our last day during our last trip, we left the apartment on an empty stomach.  We had no table service dining credits left and we were starving!  

Do not expect any of us to have a conversation with you when our bellies are empty… we barely have civil conversations between ourselves!

During most of the holiday we were having croissants and breakfast cereal in the room that I had bought over with us so we very rarely went out ‘starving’ but given this was our last day we basically had nothing left and all sweet treats were already packed!

We walked around Hollywood Studios for what seemed like miles trying to find somewhere.  There are dining places listed on the maps but very VERY few that says ‘B’ for breakfast against them so we were hoping (at 10am!) that there might be some restaurants open serving dinner… we were wrong!

Today would be the first time time in 13 years+ of visiting Disney World have we had ever stepped foot in a Starbucks but literally that was pretty much all there is for a quick breakfast! (Updated: July 18…. Toy Story land has now brought more breakfasts options to Hollywood Studios… see below)

I was only expecting pastries, coffee, cappuccinos and tea but we were actually pleasantly surprised.  We got a sausage egg & cheddar sandwich & a delicious cookie (or two!) and it was really really nice!

Where to have breakfast in Hollywood Studios?

Surprisingly the only quick service place we found in Hollywood Studios on was within the Trolley Car Cafe. We put the snack credits of which we had left to very good use though as the majority was classed as a snack which was good.

July 18 saw the introduction of the brand new Toy Story Land. It is now home to one more quick service place of which you can dine at for breakfast; Woodys Lunchbox. I have seen that they serve some fantastic quick service breakfasts from a S’more French Toast Sandwich to a hearty portion of potato barrels (aka tater tots!) with scrambled egg and more. The pictures I’ve seen look mouth watering!

Quick service breakfasts in Animal Kingdom

Rainforest Cafe at the entrance of Animal Kingdom serves breakfast but it ISN’T a quick service/snack environment – it is a sit down table service restaurant.  The only ones I recall in AK Creature Comforts (again another Starbucks!) and Yak and Yeti.

Magic Kingdom quick service breakfast

We had done the same trek around looking for breakfast in Magic Kingdom on our trip 18 months ago and again to no avail!  Main Street Bakery is again another Starbucks so they will 100% do something quick for breakfast.  Sleepy Hollow too sells a breakfast snack but I remember it being like one thing rather than a variety of stuff!

Epcot breakfasts

Epcot probably has the best variety for a quick breakfast in the Sunshine Seasons AND Starbucks.

I’m really surprised that Disney haven’t got more quick service breakfasts on offer – people want to get to the parks early don’t they with many probably skipping breakfast.

Just note unless you book a character/table service meal you are extremely limited as far as breakfast is concerned in pretty much all the parks.

Chances are you WON’T be able to get a walk up to any of those type restaurants either so if you do want to go then pre book them!

If you got value out of this or feel it would be something some one you know would love to read too then feel free to share (or PIN to read again later!)
