Guests who don’t want to worry about reservations and would prefer to spend their dining credits or budget on dinner in Magic Kingdom still have several quick service options to choose from.


  • Quick service

  • Most items are well under $15
  • Usually opens with the park

Sleepy Hollow, while busy at times, is one of the best places to get quick service breakfast in Magic Kingdom. This little counter service cottage is sure to please all in your party with it’s variety of meals served, which is why it’s featured in our list of 30 Magic Kingdom Tips & Secrets.

It’s located just off the water next to Cinderella Castle and has dishes like Breakfast Egg and Cheese Waffle Sandwich and Mickey Waffle or Funnel Cake with Powdered Sugar.

Fresh Fruit Waffle at Disney

Don’t let the Fresh Fruit Waffle fool you! This is the most popular item on the menu despite the name. It’s actually a large waffle sandwich with chocolate hazelnut spread filled with berries and bananas – definitely our top recommendation for a quick breakfast.

Sleepy Hollow has shaded seating which showcases beautiful views of the castle and helps to keep a hot morning cool for your crew.

After breakfast, you can easily get to the Hall of Presidents right next door or any of the other attractions located within Liberty Square or Adventureland.

Don’t overlook Sleepy Hollow if you want a quick Magic Kingdom breakfast. The snacks are great and relatively inexpensive if you’re sticking to a tight budget. (P.S. – We’ve got a monster guide on how to build your Disney World budget.)

The Friar’s Nook is often overlooked amidst the hustle and bustle of Fantasyland behind Cinderella Castle, but regulars know that this is a can’t-miss quick service location – for tater tots. The breakfast here is hearty and shareable, but you could easily eat it alone if you’re hungry enough.

Friar's Nook Bacon Macaroni Loaded Tots

Some of the most delicious breakfast items you can get on the go are the Sausage and Gravy Tots, smothered in Southern sausage gravy, or the Cinnamon Sugar Doughnuts (donut holes covered in cinnamon sugar). You can also get Breakfast Sandwiches here, along with a heaping side of Sausage Gravy for dipping.

Come hungry when you enter Magic Kingdom and head straight behind the castle to Fantasyland in order to find this little gem. You’ll see it near Prince Charming’s Carousel and the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.


  • Quick service
  • Location: Frontierland
  • Most items are around $12 or less
  • Opens around 8:30am

Westward Ho in Frontierland is a Joffrey’s Coffee stand with traditional breakfast items and delicious coffee drinks. It’s a welcome difference for those who enjoy their coffee but don’t want to get it from Starbucks.

Westward Ho is really one of the few quick service locations that serves actual breakfast food. Order the Breakfast Sandwich, featuring bacon, egg, cheddar and pepper jack on a multi-grain croissant for something more traditional. For a good breakfast on the run, choose from one of their assorted muffins.

Chip wasn’t aware that Magic Kingdom serves this glorious hunk of pork until he saw ours.

If you arrive for a late breakfast (11am or later) you can’t beat the Candied Bacon (pictured above with Chip). Get it with a Frozen Lemonade or with some Joffrey’s Cold Brew Coffee to jump start the day.

The Lunching Pad is easy to spot at the dead center of Tomorrowland, just under the PeopleMover loading dock. It’s recently introduced some tasty breakfast options which includes a Breakfast Bowl made with potato barrels topped with a whole cheese omelet and chili con carne queso.

Gaston’s Tavern may be more appropriate for lunch, but there are several items that make a great breakfast for those who are starving after their rush to Seven Dwarves Mine Train at rope drop. (Gaston’s is located right behind the Mine Train).

Our favorite handheld breakfast is the Warm Cinnamon Roll which is definitely great for sharing – it’s huge.

This little place looks like an exact replica of Gaston’s Tavern from Beauty and the Beast has a nice seating area to rest in while you eat. Outside, you’ll find a large fountain and town square similar to the one from the animated movie.

Gaston’s has grown popular with the man himself appearing for pictures just outside the Tavern several times a day. Grab a bite and get in line to meet the primeval villain.

Cinderella’s Royal Table is the idyllic place for starting your day in Magic Kingdom. Not only do you get to enter the park early to eat a decadent meal inside Cinderella Castle, you also meet Cinderella herself along with four other princesses.

This is definitely one our our favorite Magic Kingdom experiences listed on our guide to 110 Disney World “Must Do’s”.

You’ll start your experience by meeting Cinderella in the Grand Hall below the restaurant. Enter the back side of the castle from Fantasyland, where you’ll check in and be led to a beautiful visitor’s hall with a fireplace, tapestries and winding staircase.

Cinderella is dressed in her blue ballgown and waits by the fireplace to greet each and every guest that enters her castle. A photopass photographer is also stationed in this room to get photos of each dining party with the princess before they head up to breakfast.

Once you’ve met your hostess, take a spiraling staircase up to the restaurant. Upstairs, you’ll get a full view of Main Street, U.S.A through the castle’s stained glass windows right from your table.

Adults will enjoy dining on Pastry Plates or royal entrees like Shrimp and Grits, Beef Tenderloin with Egg, and Caramel Apple-stuffed French Toast. Cinderella’s Royal Table also has several breakfast cocktails you can choose from.

Children may prefer the Create-Your-Own-Entree option that includes dishes like Scrambled Egg, Waffles, Fruits and Assorted Cold Cereals.

During your meal, princesses like Ariel, Snow White, Jasmine and Aurora will come to each table to visit guests and take photos. Disney does mention that character appearances are subject to change, but these are the most likely princesses you’ll see for breakfast.

If you happen to be celebrating a special occasion while visiting Cinderella’s, Disney has several enhancements to increase the magic. These include the option of adding specialty desserts, an engraved glass slipper and crystal tiara, or flowers and balloons to remember the celebration.
