Review: Tomorrowland Terrace Breakfast

Those headed into Main Street USA for the next few months will be greeted with the shuttered and shut down Main Street Bakery…

Shuttered Main Street Bakery

But never fear if breakfast is what’s on your mind.

As we reported a few days ago, Tomorrowland Terrace will be serving breakfast eats while Main Street Bakery is undergoing refurbishment and Starbucks-ifying over the next few months!

Entrance

And the fearless Erin Foster, our Disney Food for Families Columnist and Disney Dining guru here at DFB, took some time after running the half-marathon last weekend (GO ERIN!!) to check out the goods!

You can see the full Tomorrowland Terrace Breakfast Menu here!

Beignets

We were excited to see one of Disney’s guest favorite snacks pop up at this temporary breakfast spot.

You can see that these beignets are fashioned after those made at Port Orleans French Quarter resort. They’re made fresh, so you may need to wait a few minutes for them after you order.

These aren’t quite as light and fluffy as the POFQ version, but they’re a good effort. The serving came with five pieces — two more than you get at POFQ — so they’re easy to share. Also, they’re messy, so be aware — but the powdered sugar is great.

Mini Waffles with Fruit Topping

We were wondering if these would be Mickey waffles, but they’re more similar to the Belgium Booth waffles from the Epcot Food and Wine Festival.

These were good, and are a very reasonable portion size for a normal human being. Syrup is available, but you have to ask at the counter — it’s not at the condiment station. I can see that being a drag if lines were long.

As for the topping, the blueberries are fresh; but the strawberries seem slightly “compotey.”

Oatmeal

This is a decent-sized portion of oatmeal, and comes with craisins and fresh blueberries. It’s not bad, but my main complaint would be that it could use a little brown sugar and none is available

Greek Yogurt Parfait

The greek yogurt parfait is topped with oats and craisins. It’s quite good, but note that it is not customizable and comes pre-made.

Berries with Cream

The berries with cream are fresh strawberries and blueberries topped with a dollop of lightly sweetened, whipped cream. This is a great option if you’re looking for a light, healthy breakfast or mid-morning snack.

Overall

As much as I love the Main Street Bakery, this option may be a bit more user-friendly. The food seems fresher, there’s lots more seating, and there’s a great view of the castle. I feel like I’m cheating on the bakery, but this is a really good solution.

There are some great healthy options, and the fresh fruit is delicious — even in Winter. Note that while several of the drinks offered are purchasable with Disney Dining Plan Snack Credits, none of the breakfast items shown above can be paid for with a Snack Credit. Guests can use a counter-service credit to get breakfast here, but that’s it.

What new item at the Terrace will you be sampling on your next visit to the Magic Kingdom? Let us know in the comments below!

    The Magic Kingdom suffers from a lack of good breakfast options. The Main Street Bakery was nice but it could become so crowded that it turned me off for a while. Combine that with the fact that for a company that likes to squeeze every buck out of every square inch of retail space the Tomorrowland Terrace sticks out as a huge wasted opportunity. They should make this perminate
    .

  2. Pudge the Fish says:

    Shame on Disney for not honoring snack credits at this location.

  3. Jaia says:

    Those mini waffles look like my perfect snack (fhough “Minnie” waffles would be cuter!). How much are they and how big are they? Two or three inches across?

  4. Erin Foster says:

    Jaia – the waffles were about three inches across.

  5. Katie says:

    It doesn’t look like you get a lot of bang for your buck. The meals look too big for snacks but too small for a meal. I think the variety is nice though.

  6. Erin says:

    Katie – I found several of the items to be perfectly sized for breakfast. At home, I usually eat yogurt and fruit or a bowl of cereal in the morning. Because of the generally huge portion sizes at WDW, I often overeat at breakfast and regret it later. I felt like the waffle, oatmeal, and yogurt options here were comparable in size to what I would normally eat, and fairly reasonably priced if you’re paying with cash. I know this is sacrilege, but I was glad not to see the giant cinnamon roll here. I liked not having that temptation dangled before me.

  7. Shaun says:

    I see you compared the beignets to Port Orleans FQ, does that mean they’re hollow inside like those or do they have dough throughout like those from Disneyland?

  8. Erin says:

    Shaun – they are hollow inside, just like POFQ.

  9. Beth in MI says:

    Am I the only one disappointed that this is turning into a Starbucks? I am going to miss some of the goodies that were made here.

  10. Jennifer says:

    Never mind about the pics I see you have them here. Haha

    I was hoping for the Mickey head shaped beignets but either way im happy :)

  11. James says:

    I’m happy to see the Tomorrowland Terrace being used for something other then Wishes Dessert Buffet. This is a great location offering some nice views of the Castle. It doesn’t address what to do with the venue once the Main Street Bakery re opens but it will do for now. The food looks great and fresh which I can tell you don’t get often for Breakfast offerings at Theme Parks outside of Disney.

  12. Natalie says:

    I think turning it into a quick service is a great idea. That was a compliant I had during my recent trip over New Years. There was not many quick service breakfasts and took many of our snack credits. Especially worth it for a quick service if you get a drink and food, which would have taken 2 snacks.

  13. Wendy Snelgrove says:

    We ate here a few days ago – had the beignets and the strawberries/blueberries with whipped cream. I liked both items. The beignets were slightly tougher than at POFQ, as I recall them, but still very good. The cream on the fruit was delish and the berries were fresh, and I believe we got a bigger serving than what is pictured above.

    Pudge, we were not on the DDP, but I believe I saw the snack credit symbols next to a lot of these items.

    One tiny detail related to your comment about the fruit being nice, “even in winter.” As a FL dweller, I always look forward to January, because the local strawberries start to come in. Plant City, southwest of Orlando, is a big strawberry production area, so Disney should be able to get an ample supply from now through late spring. Yum!

  15. Alan says:

    After reading Diane’s comment about fresh strawberries starting in Jan. makes me want to call a real estate agent in Celebration and think about a move. As hot as NC can get in the summer they are calling for a chance of snow here on Thursday, and no fresh local strawberries until April. All of the breakfast things pictured above look sooooo good.

  16. Amy says:

    All these options look delicious. I would never make it to the park without first eating breakfast, but I look forward to having the beignets as a snack- hopefully they’re available all day? The waffles look not-quite as yummy or filling as the waffle sandwich at Sleepy Hollow in Liberty Square. Totally agree that the Terrace has seemed like a plot of wasted space for a long time!
