Sleepy Hallow is the home of waffles, and they’re really good at making them. The first thing that most people think about when it comes to Disney is the food, so why not start out the day with a highlight? From Mickey Waffles with fruit to the Funnel Cake with Strawberries & whipped cream…you’re in good company when you’re in Liberty Square with something sweet.
Go for a walk when you first hit up the Magic Kingdom, because you really want to get on a couple rides before sitting down for a substantial meal. One of the best spots to grab a quick breakfast is at Gaston’s Tavern, as the opportunity to split a Giant cinnamon roll and Le Fou’s Brew with your family will give you all the energy needed. Besides, this spot in New Fantasyland has awesome air conditioning and lots of room to plot out your next adventure.

Right off Main Street USA is the Magic Kingdom’s Starbucks location. It’s #3 because it’s always packed, due to it’s location at the front of the park, but it’s still reliable. We tend to grab caffeine and a croissant or banana loaf, because having something in your tummy will always help when you’re overwhelmed with the feeling of being in the Magic Kingdom!
Dole whip is breakfast! Stop by Aloha Isle and start your day out with a “fruit cup that happens to be blended”. All your friends and family will be jealous and give you mad respect for not thinking that pineapple is part of a healthy breakfast. 😉
Table service meals are difficult to justify for breakfast, due to the cost and the sheer size of the offerings. That being said, the Magic Kingdom has a number reservation options for early mornings.
Character dining with Pooh and Friends at the Crystal Palace is a hit for kids, but please please please keep an eye out on the budget as this meal can jump really quickly when you take into account that you could be spending $30-60 for Mickey waffles. We’ve had success when using the Disney Dining Plan, as this location is a one table service credit!
