Where To Get The Best Breakfast at Disney World? 10 AMAZING Places You CAN’T MISS on Your Vacation!

Do you know where to find the BEST BREAKFAST at Disney World?

If so, you’re in the right place!

Walt Disney World is known for a few things like classic attractions, Mickey-shaped everything, and scrumptious food.

When it comes to starting your day off right and having the most energy to hit the parks, you’re going to want to grab breakfast.

But be warned, not all breakfast at Disney is created equally (hello, quick service scrambled eggs…).

If you have a little extra time to spare planning and looking at menus you can truly find some of Disney’s best breakfast locations at the parks, resorts and Disney Springs.

1. Gaston’s Tavern (Magic Kingdom)

While many people are off racing to Space Mountain, you should definitely plan a leisurely breakfast at Magic Kingdom.

One of my favorite ways to do this without actually having to make a dining reservation is to get the giant cinnamon roll from Gaston’s Tavern in Fantasyland and snag a seat inside on hot days, or outside in the courtyard on cooler mornings.

This massive cinnamon roll can easily feed two, but I’ve polished off one by myself a few times. Making it one of the best places to get breakfast at Disney World!

The super soft and gooey cinnamon roll comes with frosting on top, but if you really want to have a sugar rush first thing in the morning consider asking for a second cup of icing to make breakfast even more decadent.

2. Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie (Epcot)

If you are set on having breakfast at this park though be sure to get there early and head straight for Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie. 

The charming French bakery is serving up everything from chocolate croissants to delightful quiche and baguette sandwiches.

The trick to getting here early is to get to Epcot about an hour before the official opening.

Typically the Disney parks open anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes before the posted opening times, and this is the ideal time to grab a snack and enjoy the atmosphere of the France Pavilion before it gets too busy later in the day.

While you’re there, be sure to try the Florentine Quiche which comes with ham and gruyere quiche.

3. Ronto Roasters (Disney’s Hollywood Studios)

There is nothing better than walking into Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge first thing in the morning before it’s flooded with people trying to get on Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.

While exploring you’re going to want to stop at Ronto Roasters to get the Ronto Morning Wrap.

This breakfast spin on the original Ronto Wrap comes with eggs, pork sausage, shredded cheddar cheese, and peppercorn sauce wrapped in a pita.

Breakfast service at Ronto Roasters is very short, so you’re going to want to mobile order your meal before 10:30 a.m. to guarantee you can eat breakfast here, then grab your food from the counter and enjoy at the nearby seating area.

4. Tusker House (Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park)

One breakfast we cannot get enough of at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park is Tusker House, which is near Festival of the Lion King.

Disney Buffet Restaurant Tusker House at Animal Kingdom

This buffet-style breakfast is African-inspired, but picky eaters will still love eating here.

Tusker House is also known for their characters, which include Donald Duck and his friends in safari outfits.

Because of new guidelines, characters will not stop at your table, but they will still interact with you from afar, which we honestly love more than having to stop our breakfast every few minutes to say hi to someone.

You will need a reservation to eat here, and they can be hard to come by, so be sure to book as early as possible.

5. Grand Floridian Café (Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa)

There’s just something about spending the morning at a deluxe resort dining coffee and enjoying a leisurely meal that we love.

The breakfast there is served until 2 p.m., meaning you can even do a fancy Sunday brunch here.

I absolutely love the Mickey Chicken and Waffles, which comes with a Belgian waffle and a perfectly fried piece of chicken.

6. Wine Bar George (Disney Springs)

If there’s one place we always rave about at Disney Springs it’s Wine Bar George, and their weekend brunch is a fun escape from the hustle and bustle of the parks.

I love that I can get all of our brunch favorites like Steak and Eggs, Biscuits and Gravy, and French Toast.

If you really want to go over the top with brunch consider getting one of the restaurant’s signature boards, like the Big Board which has six cheeses and five meats.

Brunch at Wine Bar George would not be complete without getting a glass of Dole Whip Frozcato.

The frozen drink is made with Moscato, vodka, and pineapple Dole Whip and is perfect to go with any sweet or savory brunch option.

Topolino’s Terrace is one of the BEST places to get breakfast at Disney World so much so that it is extremely hard to get a reservation.

Final Tips and Thoughts For Choosing the Best Breakfast at Walt Disney World

As you can see, there are so many delicious options for you to try on your Disney vacation. Below are a couple tips to help you make the most of your time:

  • If you can’t get a reservation on your first try keep attempting, especially a few days before your trip. People cancel reservations all the time due to plan changes. This could mean you get to eat exactly where you want if you’re willing to look frequently.
  • If you’re dining at a quick service location try to find a fun spot to sit and eat instead of rushing to eat and walk at the same time. A few of our favorite spots are the hub grass at Magic Kingdom, and the courtyard near the French bakery at Epcot.
