adding breakfast to yet another table-service restaurant at the resort. This time, it's at the Sci Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant in Disney's Hollywood Studios.Walt Disney World announced this morning that it is
We'll leave aside for a moment the incongruity of having breakfast at a drive-in theater. The Sci Fi Dine-In is one of the Studios' more popular restaurants and has been home to character breakfasts during Star Wars Weekends in the past. The new "Out of This World" breakfast service starts November 1 and offers a fixed-priced menu for $23.99 per person, $12.99 ages 3 to 9. The meal includes breakfast pastries for the table, as well as a choice of appetizer, entree and beverage for each person.
So far this year, Disney also has added breakfast service at Be Our Guest in the Magic Kingdom and Garden Grill in Epcot. One of the goals of Disney's new MyMagic+ initiative was to create a system that helped to better distribute guests throughout the parks, effectively increasing the resort's capacity by moving people from traditionally crowded areas to less-crowded ones. Opening previously empty restaurants in the morning hours helps to serve that purpose.
Of course, the big push-back against breakfast in the parks has been the fact that so many guests want to spend their first hour going on rides while the lines are short. But MyMagic+ helps here, too. With so many Walt Disney World guests having their three Fastpass+ reservations for the day in hand before entering the park, more guests now are willing to spend some of their early-morning time eating breakfast instead of rushing to rides. So Disney's taking advantage, by adding breakfast service at more of its popular restaurants. Ideally, that might reduce the crush at these restaurants later in the day, too, as some of the people who really want to eat them will be able to get in for breakfast, instead.
Will these new breakfast offerings entice you and your family to have breakfast in the park instead of rushing to the rides on your next Disney World visit?
