It may not happen on your first visit to a Disney theme park, but on a subsequent trip, you may consider a sit-down breakfast at one of the Disney World restaurants in the park.
A plan that works for our family is to enter the park, go directly to enjoy a favorite attraction and then enjoy a reservation for breakfast. Schedule your three fast passes to kick in after breakfast.
Each Disney theme park has restaurants with table service breakfast available. Among the four theme parks, there are nine locations to choose from. Six of the nine are character breakfasts.
Let’s take a look at nine table-service breakfasts in the parks.
Magic Kingdom has four table-service choices for breakfast, two of which are character breakfasts.
Cinderella’s Royal Table
Located in Cinderella Castle, this is fairytale dining. The princesses circulate through the dining hall while you experience a view of Fantasyland. You have a pre-plated buffet that is pre-paid with your 180-day Advanced Dining Reservation. The cost for breakfast is $60+ per person plus tax and gratuity from 8 am-10:15 am. A photo with a princess (Cinderella, Ariel, Aurora, Snow White, or Jasmine) is included. Most agree it is, at least, a very special one-time experience, especially for princess fans.
Located just off of Main Street USA is the character breakfast at Crystal Palace. This Victorian glass-enclosed greenhouse reminiscent of the late 1800s serves a breakfast buffet from 8 am-10:45 am.
