Making your way down Main Street in the morning is unbeatable! The Main Street Vehicles are zipping by. The Dapper Dans are serenading. Citizens of Main Street are welcoming you to the Happiest Place on Earth. Not to mention all of the eager guests. You can practically hear the buzz from all of the excitement! The only thing that could make it any better would be breakfast in Magic Kingdom!
With that said, you are probably wondering what is the best breakfast at Magic Kingdom? Well the good news is whether your day calls for Quick Service or Table Service, Character Dining or Grab and Go, we’ve got you covered. Here are the six best places to grab breakfast in Magic Kingdom.
Main Street Bakery
Mornings and Main Street go hand in hand. Just like mornings and starting the day with coffee, well, in your hand. If you need a java jolt first thing in the morning (guilty!) make your way down Main Street for a coffee fueled Magic Kingdom breakfast.
The Main Street Bakery houses Magic Kingdom’s Starbucks location. Here guests can order their favorite Starbucks items served up with a side of Disney magic.
It’s worth noting that there’s no indoor seating here. Rather head up Main Street and look for a table near the Ice Cream Parlor or Casey’s. Or go for a picnic on the Hub Grass.
From Frappuccinos to breakfast sandwiches, if you frequent Starbucks the Main Street Bakery menu should look familiar. This is also where you can pick up the latest trending cupcake. And if that Rose Gold cupcake happens to become breakfast (guilty again!)… hey you’re on vacation!
Check any list for best breakfast options at Magic Kingdom and Crystal Palace is sure to make an appearance. This perennial favorite is one of the most popular Character Dining locations at Walt Disney World. The Victorian inspired restaurant is beautiful and airy. It creates such a pleasant atmosphere. Even if you’re not looking for a Character Dining experience, consider dining here strictly for the stately elegance of this classic restaurant.
If you are here for Character Dining, this is the place to meet Winnie the Pooh and friends! Characters from the Hundred Acre Woods stop by your table for hugs, pictures, and autographs. Pooh Bear even leads the kids on a march around the restaurant.
Meeting characters? Check. Taking in the ambience? Check. Time for some tasty food! If you’re going to eat at Crystal Palace, breakfast is the time to go. Breakfast is roundly considered the best meal here. Nosh on traditional American food at this All You Care to Enjoy restaurant. Staples like made to order omelets, pancakes, and biscuits and gravy line the buffet. The designated kid’s section offers Mickey waffles, eggs, and other kid friendly fare. Oh and try the cheesy casserole!
Sleepy Hollow Refreshments
Sleepy Hollow Refreshments knows waffles! There’s always a line of people clamoring for the popular waffle sandwiches served here. Freshly made waffles are pulled off the iron right before your eyes. No sad waffles languishing under heat lamps here! The waffles are crunchy and soft in all the right places. Then they’re filled with yumminess like Nutella and fruit or egg and cheese. Yes please! You can also go classic with non sandwich versions topped with strawberries and whipped cream or powdered sugar.
They may not be Mickey shaped but these waffles are a must. Plus, snag a spot in their outdoor seating area for gorgeous views of Cinderella Castle. Speaking of castles…
Cinderella’s Royal Table
If you’re a Disney fan, being in Cinderella Castle is probably on your Disney World bucket list. At Cinderella’s Royal Table, you get to dine INSIDE the castle. Meeting princesses while overlooking Fantasyland? Talk about a magical way to start the day!
Ambiance takes center stage at Cinderella’s Royal Table. Ascending up the grand staircase into the stain glass filled dining room sure makes you feel like royalty. Once inside you get to meet actual Disney royalty. Cinderella and other princesses (often Snow White, Aurora, Ariel, and Jasmine) make appearances. Each princess is announced to the room in regal fashion before making their way to guests’ tables.
An assortment of pastries starts off the meal. Little ones get a plate of kid approved classics like eggs, sausage, and, of course, Mickey waffles. Adults have a choice of entrées like Shrimp and Grits or Cinnamon Apple French Toast. While the food is fine at Cinderella’s, it’s really all about the experience. And this is definitely an unforgettable one!
This is the place to get those giant, gooey Cinnamon Rolls you’ve undoubtedly seen on Instagram. The sugary behemoth is served warm and dripping with icing. Basically, it’s perfection.
Gaston’s Tavern is also home to the beloved LeFou’s Brew. This non-alcoholic specialty beverage is a combination of frozen apple juice, toasted marshmallow, and passion fruit topping. So go all in and grab a LeFou’s Brew while you’re there. I mean apples are fruit after all!
Be Our Guest
We’re staying in New Fantasyland for the next can’t miss breakfast option in Magic Kingdom- Be Our Guest. From day one Disney fans were buzzing about the immersive theming in this restaurant. In the Grand Ballroom, you expect Belle to waltz in at any moment!
The menu is, appropriately, French inspired cuisine. The ubiquitous assorted pastries start the meal followed by your choice of entrée. Quality and portions for this meal surpass typical Quick Service expectations.
The stunning, detailed design continues to make Be Our Guest a hot reservation. Since dinner ADR’s can be tricky, guests usually have a better chance of snagging a breakfast or lunch reservation. Wait reservations for a Quick Service meal? Yup! Reservations are a necessity here. I definitely suggest booking a time slot before park opening. You’ll be treated to a quiet Fantasyland. Plus if you plan it just right, you may even walk on Seven Dwarves Mine Train! I know. Dreams do come true. So pull up a chair to one of the best breakfasts in Magic Kingdom.
