    7 Great Breakfast Spots You’re Missing at Walt Disney World

    If you’re planning a long day at Walt Disney World’s theme parks, breakfast is absolutely essential.

    Start your day strong with a filling choice from one of these great, yet easily overlooked, breakfast spots.

    1. Cheshire Café, Fantasyland, Magic Kingdom

    Cheshire Café is a small food and beverage stand located at the edge of Fantasyland, near the Mad Tea Party and across from Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Café. Along with a variety of fruit juices and coffees, the Cheshire Café offers a selection of breakfast cereals. Milk is included in the price of the cereal, so you can get a whole meal for a reasonable price. If you’re not a big breakfast person and like to wake up a little before you eat, this is the perfect stop. Grab an easy morning meal on your way back to the new Fantasyland with this quick and simple option.

    2. Sunshine Seasons, The Land Pavilion, Epcot

    Future World in Epcot offers a wonderful, and mostly hidden, breakfast locale inside its Land Pavilion. Just across from both Living with the Land and Soarin’, Sunshine Seasons offers an array of breakfast items that conform to its ideals of using local and fresh products, much of which comes from the Lands’ own greenhouses. This indoor food court features several stations with options ranging from museli to breakfast paninis.

    With so many choices, this is a great pick when you have several diverse tastes in your party. Head straight to The Land when you enter the park, and maybe even hop on Soarin first while the line is still short. Sunshine Seasons is right across from this attraction, so you can pop in for a delicious meal after.

    3. Fairfax Fare, Sunset Boulevard, Disney’s Hollywood Studios

    Just up the road from the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster is Fairfax Fare, an unassuming food stand. While its selection is limited to a few hot sandwiches and pastries, the fact that it offers a quick breakfast rather than a huge breakfast buffet means that your day, and pocketbook, won’t suffer from a visit. If you’re after something light, yogurt, granola bars, and fruit cups are on hand. If you want something heartier, try the bacon, egg, and cheese English muffin.

    Head to Sunset Boulevard first thing when you get to Studios and you can grab breakfast here before your first ride of the day. If you want to hit Tower of Terror or Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster before the lines hit, stop here and snag a shaded picnic table for a quick meal after.

    4. Starring Rolls Café, Sunset Boulevard, Disney’s Hollywood Studios

    Conveniently located near the entrance to the park, the Starring Rolls Café is an out-of-the-way bakery tucked next to the Hollywood Brown Derby. The café is only open for breakfast and lunch, so you’d do well to pop in and enjoy the fare early. The breakfast menu includes a wide selection of pastries and bagels. Try a chocolate croissant and one of the café’s specialty coffees for a decadent treat early in the morning.

    5. Pizzafari, Discovery Island, Disney’s Animal Kingdom

    Looking for unique breakfast options that depart from the norm? Stop by Pizzafari at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Predictably, the restaurant offers a flatbread breakfast pizza, but this is far from being the only item on the menu. The Bounty Platter will satisfy any appetite with scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes, French toast sticks, and a biscuit. If you’re looking for something simpler, try the Ancient Grain Hot Cereal. This filling blend of oatmeal, quinoa, and barley features a salted caramel crumble on top that gives oatmeal all new appeal.

    6. Trail’s End Restaurant, Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort  and Campground

    Hidden away in the wooded wilderness, and just a boat ride away from the Magic Kingdom, is the Trails End Restaurant. This all-you-can-eat buffet features a new take on hearty country dinner favorites with options like their barbeque brisket hash and French toast-custard pudding. If you’re more used to less exciting options, don’t worry. Biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, bacon, and gigantic sausage links can also be found on this extensive buffet bar.

    If you’re headed to the Magic Kingdom for the day, this is an easy breakfast choice. From a Disney resort, the best way to get here is to head to the Magic Kingdom first, then take a boat to and from Fort Wilderness. If you park at Fort Wilderness or get there by bus, keep in mind that you’ll need to take a separate bus back to the Settlement, whereas the boats drop you off right where you need to be.

    7. The Wave, Disney’s Contemporary Resort

    Can’t get a reservation at Chef Mickey’s? That happens frequently. Want something more than just a quick bite on the run from the Contempo Café? Found on the bottom floor of the main building, just around the corner from the main check-in desk, is the Wave. The breakfast buffet includes a smoked salmon bar, assorted local fruits, plentiful pastries, and the restaurant’s signature sweet potato pancakes. You can also order breakfast a la carte, from a diverse menu that features omelets, eggs, French toast, waffles, and more.

    The Contemporary is within walking distance of the Magic Kingdom, so the best option if you’re coming from another Disney resort is to head to the park, then make the short jaunt over to the Contemporary for breakfast.

    Don’t drag through the day because you didn’t take the time to indulge in a lasting morning meal. Enjoy a delicious breakfast at any one of these enticing spots.
