Ok, You need to grab breakfast and go. You are in the most magical place on earth so you don’t want to miss out on anything. Where can you grab a quick bite and still set sail with Jack Sparrow before the crowds arrive? Don’t worry I’ve got you! Here are my favorite grab and go breakfasts in Magic Kingdom! Bonus- A few of them have a glorious a view of the castle, or should I say castles?
If you love warm cinnamon rolls Gaston’s Tavern has the perfect breakfast for you. Gaston’s Tavern is located in the back of Fantasyland just to the right of Be Our Guest Restaurant. This quick service location opens at 9AM.
Gaston’s Tavern serves up the best cinnamon rolls in the park! Doing Keto at Disney? We wont judge. They also have Turkey Legs. While its not a food item, my favorite treat to get here is Lefou’s Brew. Named after Gaston’s sidekick, this frozen apple juice has a hint of toasted marshmallow and is topped with a Mango-Passionfruit foam.
You do get a view here too! There are tables and seating indoors and out. With no shortage of antlers in the place Gaston certainly had a hand in decorating! He even has his own special chair by the fireplace and of course a large self portrait. There are also a few tables outside with a view of Beast’s Castle. The best thing is after you are done with your breakfast you can go right around the corner and hop on Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. Maybe you want to ride that before eating though!
2. Sleepy Hollow Breakfast
If your looking for a breakfast view to beat all breakfast views head straight toward the castle then take a left then head over the bridge heading toward Liberty Square. On the right hand side you will find Sleepy Hollow. Sleepy Hollow opens at 9 AM and offers up a beautiful side and rear view of Cinderella’s Castle. Is there any better way to start your day then with a Mickey Waffle in your hand watching the morning sun reflecting off the castle turrets? No I think not.
Here you can find Mickey Waffles with powdered sugar, funnel cakes with and without strawberries. Hey its practically healthy if it has fruit. They also have a waffle with Nutella and fresh bananas, blueberries, and strawberries.
From here you can head straight to Haunted Mansion or book a quick left to Thunder Mountain before the lines start. If your looking to get over to Fantasyland fast afterwards take the path that goes behind the castle and you will be standing in front of the carousel in no time.
3. Main Street Bakery Breakfast
Ok If you think “Castle views sound lovely but I need my coffee!” then go straight to Main Street stat! Even if your eyes aren’t open yet you wont miss it. You will smell it before you see it. The heavenly smell of coffee will greet you before you even enter.
Main Street Bakery is located on Main Street, just at the end, on the right hand side. It opens early at 8:30 AM.
Main Street Bakery features Starbucks Coffees frozen, iced, and hot in a variety of flavors. Your family wont mind stopping in here. They know how you are before you get your coffee. They also carry Teavana Tea’s. A variety of breakfast sandwiches, pastries, and sweets are also available.
From here you can pretty much head off in any direction since you will be heading toward the center of the HUB. Since its still early you can really get all those popular rides done before the crowds come and the lines start.
4. Friar Nooks Breakfast
Head straight through the castle and make a right at the carousel and you will find Friar Nook’s quick service location. This location has added a bunch of seating and has starting serving up a good quick hot breakfast. Friar Nook opens at 9 AM. They serve breakfast croissants with tator tots , sausage and gravy tots, and cinnamon sugar doughnut holes. You can get O.J. and coffee here as well. Its a nice little spot right in the center of Fantasyland. The view of the carousel is lovely to watch going around. Can you spot Cinderella and Prince Charming’s horse?
From here you could head just about anywhere since you are so central but you are just a hop away from The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and the normally long wait time Peter Pan.
These scenic breakfast spots are another reason to be a morning person at Disney. Did I already mention people-less Castle selfies?
