Disney adds breakfast at the Magic Kingdom's Plaza Restaurant

September 21, 2018, 4:38 PM · Heading to the parks early? Walt Disney World is about to offer another in-park dining option for breakfast, starting in November.

The Plaza Restaurant in the Magic Kingdom soon will add breakfast to its menu, with the expanded hours starting November 4. A table-service restaurant, The Plaza will serve breakfast selections that will be familiar to many fans who've stayed at Disney's various on-site hotels, including made-to-order omelets, Lobster Benedict (a favorite from The Grand Floridian Cafe), as well as the All-American Breakfast featuring Mickey Waffles... plus scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, breakfast potatoes, and a biscuit. (I need to take a walk to work off some carbs after just reading that list.)

This is a limited time deal, scheduled to end on January 5, so we'll see if guest demand causes Disney to extend the offer permanently or not. Breakfast will be served during the trial period from 8am to 10:30am, and reservations are now available on Disney's website.

Are you a "eat breakfast" person or a "ride rides" person when you hit the parks in the morning?

I prefer the "coffee and Kind bar" sort of breakfast myself on a theme park vacation except if it's a sleep/rest day.

It 'breakfasts' every day in Celebration, as well as at meet and greets at Disney Resorts, so nothing new for central Florida.

Always something new at the Kingdom. Outstanding news!

I'm actually wondering why it has taken Disney this long to start serving breakfast in the Plaza Restaurant.

People want to enjoy the Magic Kingdom in different ways. Not everybody is in a mad dash to experience as many rides in the Standby lines before the park gets busy. Some people, mostly older visitors and regular visitors, want to leisurely enjoy the park. Have breakfast, watch the parades and street entertainment, and catch their FastPass+ reservations.

There are also the folks who have sensitive digestive systems, and if they're staying off property or on one of the longer bus routes, the option of eating breakfast before the trip to the park isn't there. The combination of stress, excitement, and irritable bowels is a sure recipe for a mad dash looking for a restroom. So, for these folks, getting breakfast in the park after getting there early and catching a few rides is a necessity.

Disney makes more money, and a segment of their park visitors have a better experience!
