An epic day at Disney World should always start with a hearty breakfast. But as we already know, there’s no way you can cram in bacon, eggs, and Mickey Waffles while still waking up early in order to make it to the parks early enough to rope drop.
That’s why I believe the best way to start your mornings at Disney World is with a snack.
From Mickey-shaped deliciousness to handheld, on-the-go-ready pastries, there are actually some great snacks that’ll satisfy your sweet tooth, even at the crack of dawn.
Best Disney Snacks for Breakfast in Disney World
Here are my favorite, go-to snacks that a perfect for breakfast at Disney World:
1. Fruit and Nutella Waffle Sandwich
A handheld, freshly made waffle topped with strawberries, bananas, blueberries, and Nutella. This is a definitely bucket list worthy.
Plus, you can’t beat breakfast with this view.
You’ll find this along with generic funnel cakes (which are also a great breakfast snack) at Sleepy Hollow in Magic Kingdom.
2. Warm Cinnamon Roll
Warm, massive, soft, and chewy with just the perfect amount of icing. This is a fantastic snack in general that’s perfect for sharing. Sure, it’s not as good as a Cinnabon like the ones you’ll find at Universal Studios, but this is a perfect compromise.
You can grab this from Gaston’s Tavern in Magic Kingdom.
3. Any Pastry from Les Halles Boulangerie-Patiserrie
By far the best bakery in Epcot, let alone Disney World. There are literally so many delicious options at Les Halles that you really can’t go wrong with any other their pastries or desserts.
I recommend you opt for a Fraises (sweet tart with vanilla cream and strawberries), the Napoleon, or either a plain or chocolate croissant. To be honest, no matter what you choose the bakery in France in Epcot, you’re bound to love it.
4. Cheshire Cat Tail
When I think about MK snacks that get overlooked, this usually tops the list.
The Cheshire Cat Tail is an extra long, flaky, and warm chocolate danish twist drizzled with loads of colorful icing.
You’ll find this at Cheshire Cafe in Magic Kingdom.
5. Pongu Lumpia
In my mind, pineapple and cream cheese shouldn’t go together, but believe it or not, this one works.
The Pongu Lumpia is a pineapple-cream cheese spring roll that’s coated with sugar. Just be sure to pair it with a refreshing Night Blossom.
You can find this at Pong Pongu inside Pandora at Animal Kingdom.
6. Carrot Cake Cookie
A crowd favorite thats less of a cookie but more of a rich and moist carrot cake with a generous amount of cream cheese icing. One thing to note is that it does get swapped out for a red velvet whoopee pie during Christmas which isn’t as good, to be honest.
You can grab this from Trolley Car Cafe (aka Starbucks) in Hollywood Studios.
7. Lunch Box Tart
These are essentially Pop-Tarts but better. There are currently four flavors to choose from: banana peanut butter fudge, chocolate hazelnut, lemon blueberry, or raspberry.
You can grab one of these from Woody’s Lunch Box in Hollywood Studios.
There’s just something about these “new” crepes that just hit differently. Never did I think I would enjoy just a plain butter and sugar crepe as much as I did at the newly opened Crepes A Emporter at La Creperie de Paris.
But if plain crepes aren’t your thing, you can also opt for hazelnut and chocolate spread crepe, a red berries crepe, or my personal favorite, a vanilla or chocolate ice cream crepe.
You can crab one of these sweet crepes from Crepes A Emporter at La Creperie de Paris in France Pavilion in Epcot near the Ratatouille ride.
9. School Bread
By far the most overrated Epcot dessert.
But with that being said, it’s a decent breakfast option that’s reminiscent of a bagel combined with a bavarian cream donut. The School Bread is a sweet roll filled with custard and dipped in coconut shavings. It’s okay but some people seem to LOVE it.
Just pair it with a frozen Viking Coffee and pop into Frozen Ever After.
You can grab this from Kingly Bakeri Og Kafe in the Norway Pavilion in Epcot.
10. Pineapple Upside-Down Cake
I don’t care what anyone says, but I believe ice cream is totally acceptable for breakfast. That’s why I recommend you grab the Dole Whip topped Pineapple Upside-Down Cake from Aloha Isle in Magic Kingdom.
It’s delicious pineapple cake topped with pineapple Dole Whip. I mean what else can you ask for?
11. Jack Jack Num Num Cookie
A generous, warm chocolate chip cookie packed with chocolate chip chunks that’s big enough to share.
If you catch it right, this cookie is so soft, chewy, and delicious.
You’ll find this at the Market in front of the main Toy Story Land entrance.
12. Liege Waffle
A fluffy, brioche waffle filled with caramelized sugar chunks and topped with fresh strawberries, whipped cream, and a chocolate drizzle.
The only downside is that this waffle is probably the least grab-and-go-friendly breakfast snack on this list.
You’ll find this at the Creation Cafe in Epcot.
As you can probably tell, most of the best breakfast snacks are located in Epcot’s World Showcase, and for good reason.
But thankfully, there are a handful of sweeter options across the other 3 parks that are just as good.
