The Plaza Restaurant: Best Magic Kingdom Breakfast
I love visiting Magic Kingdom first thing in the morning! There aren’t a lot of people, the temperature is still cool, and there’s an indescribable excitement in the air.
Since I get there so early, I generally opt to have a table-service breakfast in the park. I like the buffet at Crystal Palace, but I don’t want to pay character dining prices to see Winnie the Pooh characters over and over. I enjoy going to Be Our Guest, but the food is outrageous and portions are small. And I’ve never been able to land a reservation at Cinderella’s Royal Table.
On my most recent trip to Walt Disney World, I was looking at breakfast options outside of the park for me, my sister (Peyton), and friend (Rachael), when I stumbled across The Plaza Restaurant–which just happened to be at Magic Kingdom. We scored a last minute reservation and ended up having a fantastic experience.
After my visit, I can confidently say that The Plaza Restaurant serves the best breakfast at Magic Kingdom.
About The Plaza Restaurant
The Plaza Restaurant is at the end of Main Street USA, beside of the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor. I’ve walked by it 1000 times and thought it was just part of the Ice Cream Parlor–clearly I wasn’t paying very much attention.
The Plaza serves casual, family-friendly eats (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) in an elegant, turn-of-the-century setting. It is a pretty but very simple restaurant; there’s no over the top Disney theming here and there are maybe 30 tables.
As with all Disney restaurants, reservations are recommended and can be made 180 days in advance.
Note: There are no bathrooms inside of the restaurant. They’re close by, but you have to go outside and use the ones beside of the Tomorrowland Terrace.

For breakfast, I ordered the All-American Classic Breakfast Platter: Mickey Waffles, Scrambled Eggs, Bacon, Sausage, Breakfast Potatoes, and a Biscuit. I loved my meal! The potatoes are the same as the ones that I like at ‘Ohana, only with peppers. I opted to get all bacon instead of sausage and could have done without the biscuit.
It was much more filling and almost half of the price ($16) than my typical breakfast at Be Our Guest (Feast á la Gaston $28).
Peyton started with a Peach Bellini Cocktail ($10), made from Canella Prosecco and White Peach Juice.
She then had the Country Ham and Eggs Benedict ($15): two Poached Eggs with Smoked Alpine Ham and Fresh Herbs piled on a Buttermilk Biscuit topped with creamy Hollandaise Sauce and served with Breakfast Potatoes.
Rachael opted for the Mickey Waffles ($14): three Mickey Waffles topped with powdered sugar and sprinkles on a spread of Banana Pastry, served with bacon, sausage, and fruit. We have ordered Mickey Waffles throughout Walt Disney World and these are by far the prettiest and most unique.
I should also note that we had our breakfast within fifteen minutes of ordering–a rarity for Walt Disney World table service restaurants. We were in and out of breakfast in less than an hour, giving us more time to enjoy the park.
Enjoy A Fantastic Breakfast
Come enjoy breakfast at The Plaza Restaurant from 7:45 to 10:30 AM daily. It’s bound to be the best breakfast you’ve had at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom!
Note: Transportation to Magic Kingdom in the morning is incredibly slow. It took us an hour and a half to get from our car in the parking lot to the restaurant.
