Hollywood Studios Breakfast Options

The final parks installment of our breakfast series: Where can you find a good breakfast at Disney’s Hollywood Studios?

Snack/Quick Service

Starring Rolls Cafe Ok, so Starring Rolls Cafe may not have very many strictly “breakfast” foods, but they are open in the morning hours at Hollywood Studios. When else can you eat a giant cupcake for breakfast guilt free? It’s vacation! I’m partial to the Butterfinger cupcake myself. Starring Rolls does also carry other breakfast pastries and some fruit; as well as the most important breakfast staple: coffee.

The Trolley Car Cafe Recently opened, the Trolley Car Cafe is Hollywood Studios Starbucks location. This store carries the usual Starbucks pastries, breakfast sandwiches and coffee beverages. This Starbucks location also carries some of the same cupcakes as Starring Rolls Cafe! I guess Hollywood Studios really wants you to have cupcakes for breakfast.

Anaheim Produce A snack location, Anaheim Produce carries a few things suitable for breakfast like fruit and trail mix. I’d absolutely go for the cupcakes at the above two locations, but your mileage may vary. 😉

Table Service

Hollywood & Vine Hollywood & Vine is the only table service restaurant at Hollywood Studios to serve breakfast, but it’s a great meal! Sofia the First, Doc McStuffins, Jake (from Jake and the Neverland Pirates) and Handy Manny appear at this Disney Junior character meal. This is the only place these 4 characters meet during a meal. The food is fresh and delicious, and includes waffles, breakfast meats, eggs, french toast, potatoes, pastries, cereal, fruit, a burrito bar and a yogurt bar. Hollywood & Vine breakfast is a must do for Disney Junior fans!

Breakfast Options at Magic Kingdom

A recap of your breakfast options for a morning at Disney’s Magic Kingdom!

Quick Service/Snack

Main Street Bakery/Starbucks: With a wide variety of options in a great location, Starbucks/Main Street bakery is a good place to stop and grab a bite on your way into the park. The lines here can get quite long, but you know exactly what you’re getting: good coffee, pastries and breakfast sandwiches!

Gaston’s Tavern: Gaston’s has a very limited breakfast “menu” (two items, really) Gaston’s might not seem worth the trek, but they are! Giant cinnamon rolls and delicious chocolate croissants are featured at Gaston’s, and they make for a mouthwatering and quick breakfast, as the line at Gaston’s is smaller than most other breakfast places in the Magic Kingdom

Sleepy Hollow: My personal favorite. The waffles served here are something special. Breakfast options include the Nutella and fresh fruit waffle (served all day) and a breakfast-only waffle; featuring prosciutto, cheese, egg and tomato. You can also pick up an iced coffee at Sleepy Hollow and make for a complete breakfast! In my opinion it is not a trip to Disney World without a visit to Sleepy Hollow for at least one waffle sandwich.

Be Our Guest: While technically a quick service restaurant for breakfast (and lunch) Be Our Guest does require reservations 180 days in advance. Breakfast is a little pricy for a non-character meal at $19.99 per adult and $11.99 per child but the menu is fairly large (visit here to see!), the food delicious, and the setting stunning.


Table Service Restaurants

Crystal Palace: Featuring characters from Winnie the Pooh, Crystal Palace is a reasonably priced character meal around $25-30 per adult. Breakfast is served buffet style and also has an omelet station. Read Dana’s review here for more details!

Cinderella’s Royal Table: One of the most expensive meals on Disney property at $55-60 per adult, or 2 dining plan credits, Cinderella’s Royal Table is still what many would consider a not-to-miss meal and experience. At Cinderella’s Royal Table you’re truly spoiled by amazing food in an unbeatable location. Character interaction with Disney princesses is top notch and really could there be anything better than actually dining inside Cinderella’s castle? I think not!

Top 5 Places to Get Coffee in Walt Disney World


I don’t know about you, but I’m a coffee addict.  I need a daily fix of my glorious dark roasted fuel before I can handle the day, and being on vacation at Disney is no exception. In case you’re the same way, I’m listing my Top 5 places to get coffee at WDW.

1.  Kona Cafe

This restaurant at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort has authentic Hawaiian coffee beans that are ground and then brewed in a French Press pot.  This is for folks who take their coffee seriously (like me).

2.  Starbucks at the Main Street Bakery

Located right there as you come in the gate, you can’t get a much more central location.  They have all your ‘Bux faves as well as the adorable mug you see up top.

3. Sunshine Tree Terrace

Not only can you get a Dole Whip here, you can also pick up an Iced Coffee Float.  Your choice of flavored coffee poured right over some creamy vanilla soft serve.  Cool down and get your caffeine fix simultaneously.  I do love efficiency!

4.  La Cava del Tequila

If you like your coffee tipsy, this is for you.  You can get a Coffee Mezcal Margarita.  You read right…a coffee margarita.  This combines two of my favorite drinks.  How can this go wrong?

5.  Writers Stop

This hidden gem is nestled between Sci-Fi Dine In and the Streets of America and is not usually very busy.  Pop in for a cappuccino and a cookie and get off your feet for a few.
