Breakfast is one of our absolute favorite meals to enjoy at the Disney parks — along with lunch, second lunch, dinner, second dinner… . But in all seriousness, is it just us or does breakfast just seem to taste better at Disney World?
That’s why we’re counting down our top 10 most intriguing breakfast bites to get your morning motor runnin’. What’s on the menu? Let’s take a look!
1. Woody’s Lunch Box Tart in Toy Story Land
Sold throughout the day, these little guys make a great dessert but do double-duty as a quick breakfast while on the move! The tarts come in Raspberry, Chocolate Hazelnut, and sometimes seasonal flavors — we’re hoping the Cinnamon Cran-Apple one returns in time for the holidays. We’ve also had a Lemon-Blueberry lunch box tart here as well!
2. Captain Cook’s Tonga Toast in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
Sure you can pay a lot more for the thick slabs of Tonga Toast stuffed with bananas and rolled in cinnamon sugar at Kona Café OR you can gobble them up for less (less cash money — not less deliciousness, that is) at Captain Cook’s, a quick-service joint just downstairs! We know which one we’d pick!
The only difference here (other than price) is that the ones at Kona Cafe come with a Strawberry Compote that you won’t find down at Captain Cook’s. Tonga Toast is a fun hidden gem that can feed an army, so save even more money and share!
3. Pongu Lumpia in Pandora
Soaring with banshees worked up your appetite? Steer yourself over to Pongu Pongu for a Pongu Lumpia — a sweet pineapple cream cheese roll! This small but mighty morning snack will get you out of Pandora in one piece — hopefully!
Now some people don’t like these, so just be sure that sweet pineapple cream cheese sounds like an appetizing snack to you before deciding to make this your new go-to!
4. Warm Colossal Cinnamon Roll in Disney’s Animal Kingdom
How does a cinnamon roll the size of your head sound? Or maybe the size of Mickey’s head to be precise — since it’s Mickey-shaped, of course! The Colossal Cinnamon Roll can quite possibly feed two very hungry people or even a small family!
It delivers a good amount of icing and stays soft and yummy while you eat it unlike some cinnamon rolls in the past that got stale and dry as they cooled off. Look for it at the Animal Kingdom — you can’t miss it! You can typically find this treat at Kusafiri and Creature Comforts in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
5. Warm Cinnamon Roll at Gaston’s Tavern
We can’t talk about cinnamon rolls, however, without including the one over at Gaston’s Tavern! This cinnamon roll is BIG, making it perfect to share (although you might just want to grab it all for yourself).
Be sure to ask for an extra cup of icing!
6. Boardwalk Bakery Bagel Sandwiches on Disney’s BoardWalk
Near and dear to our hearts is The Boardwalk Bakery. Nothing says Disney vacay like hitting up this little spot for a hot sandwich before going to Epcot. The Everything Everything Sandwich is usually the one we gravitate towards but there are others to contend with.
Go every day and try a new one each time! Note that these do change out from time to time, so check back often!
7. Mickey Beignets at Port Orleans Resort, French Quarter
There are a ton of good reasons to stay at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort — French Quarter. Reasons 1, 2, and 3 are waking up to the Mickey-shaped Beignets at Scat Cat Club’s Cafe! These deep-fried fluffy pillows of golden brown deliciousness are dusted with tons of powdery confectioner’s sugar.
Note: Disney’s Port Orleans Resorts are closed at the moment and have not yet reopened, so you can’t grab beignets from this spot in Disney World right now.
8. Sleepy Hollow Waffles in Magic Kingdom
Their hazelnut spread and fresh fruit waffle sandwich might require assistance to finish — but we’re certain you’ll have plenty of volunteers to help you! (P.S. you could add some ice cream to this treat and make an A+ Disney snack hack!)
9. Cheshire Cat Tail in Magic Kingdom
If you’re looking for a sweet breakfast treat in Magic Kingdom, the Cheshire Cat Tail is a fantastic option! This flaky pastry is filled with chocolate and drizzled with lots of icing.
While it might be big enough to share, we have a feeling you’ll want to eat the whole thing once you take a bite. You’ll typically find this treat in Magic Kingdom at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe (although this spot is technically open for lunch/dinner starting around 10:30AM, so it might be a bit of a late breakfast) and The Lunching Pad.
10. Triple Suns Breakfast Wrap in Galaxy’s Edge
Made your way straight to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in the morning to ride Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run? Well, after you’ve piloted the Falcon, it’s time to grab a delicious and unique breakfast with the Triple Suns Breakfast Wrap at Ronto Roasters.
This vegan wrap is made with plant-based “egg,” smoky chickpea onion slaw, and roasted tomato sauce wrapped in a warm pita. It packs a SPICY punch (almost like a curry taste) although we think most people will enjoy this level of heat.
There are a whole bunch of different flavors to really enjoy and savor here. We could seriously eat a whole bucket of the smoky chickpea onion slaw!!
No list would be complete without some honorable mentions, so here are a few of ours!
1. School Bread at Kringla Bakeri in EPCOT
When in EPCOT, make a beeline to this Nordic temple of sweets! School Bread is the MOST delicious snack to work into your AM routine — a yeasty bread roll with a sweet, but not too sweet, custardy filling topped with icing and shavings of toasted coconut!
Note: at the moment, Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe doesn’t open until around 11:30AM typically, and EPCOT itself has been opening around 11AM. You might not be able to grab it for breakfast per se, unless you eat breakfast around 11:30AM. But, you could still grab it as a fun snack!
2. Roulé Lard et Fromage from Les Halles Boulangerie & Patisserie in EPCOT
C’est délicieux! Early birds flock to the authentic French treats at this tucked away EPCOT eatery. There are killer sandwiches, croissants, pastries, parfaits…the list goes on and on! The Roulé Lard et Fromage from Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie is to die for with its warm, buttery roll and bits of bacon and melty cheese inside.
Recently, the snack has made a comeback in the form of the Roulé aux Fromage, and Disney has even responded to our pleas to add more bacon to this treat. If you love cheese, bread, and bacon, this is a treat we have a feeling you’ll really enjoy. The new version is a bit drier though and it doesn’t seem to have that cheese and bacon running through the inside of the treat, so that’s just something to keep in mind.
Again, EPCOT is not opening until later in the day now (around 11AM) and Les Halles doesn’t open until that time as well, so it might not qualify as “breakfast” anymore, but it can be one delicious snack!
