If you’re planning a visit to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, breakfast may be on your mind. Hollywood Studios is one of the more complicated parks for guests to navigate, so planning out meals ahead is not a bad idea.

From character dining to quick service cafes, we’re exploring breakfast at Hollywood Studios and highlighting dining tips, and more. So, grab your coffee and let’s dive in!

Disney Hollywood Studios Breakfast at Quick Service Restaurants

When visiting Hollywood Studios, it’s important to remember that lines on the most popular attractions can get long. We’re talking 50+ minutes long in some cases. Since lines tend to be shortest in the morning, spending a lengthy amount of time breakfasting in a casual table service atmosphere, might not be your best bet.

To optimize your time and spend more of it riding rides when lines are at their shortest, consider a quick service breakfast at Hollywood Studios. Quick-service is Disney’s term for counter service. Think fast food, but with better theming and usually tastier options.

To learn more about quick service dining at Disney World, read our article about fast and easy dining on call. Or explore some of the best quick-service options at Disney World.

At a quick service restaurant in Hollywood Studios, you can walk up to the counter, order your food and receive it in a flash. You can even eat your meal as you walk to your next ride or take a few minutes at a table to rest your feet while you dine.

For the speediest service of all, consider mobile ordering. Using the My Disney Experience app, you can order your food while you wait in line and have it ready when you arrive at the restaurant.

Let’s explore some of Disney Hollywood Studios breakfast quick service dining options.

Anaheim Produce

For a quick service breakfast that’s really quick, stop by Anaheim Produce to grab some fruit for your morning meal. It’s fast and nutritious.

Market

The rather generic name for this dining kiosk hints at the fact that breakfast may not be the real specialty here. You can, however, grab a cookie to satisfy your sweet tooth, and a banana to add some healthy substance. If you’re going all in on the sugary goodness, opt for the Pineapple-Coconut Slushy while you’re there.

Where It’s Located: Pixar Plaza

Pros:  Fast and easy to grab and satisfies your sweet tooth.

Cons: May not be very filling for larger appetites

Click here for Market’s Menu

Neighborhood Bakery

Bakery here is misleading, because the only qualifying item you’ll find is Jack’s Num Num Cookie, which is really a chocolate chip tart. For a sugar overload, top it off with a blue raspberry or wild cherry slushy.

Where It’s Located: Pixar Plaza

Pros:  Fast and easy to grab and satisfies your sweet tooth.

Cons: May not be very filling for larger appetites. May not open until 9:00 am.

Ronto Roasters

Where It’s Located: Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge

Pros:  Ronto Roasters features heartier grab and go items for guests focused on saving the universe.

Cons: Limited specialized menu may not suit all tastes.

Disney Hollywood Studios Breakfast Table Service Dining

If sitting down over a large spread, while a talented wait service attends to your needs, is the only way you want to take your morning meal, you may find Disney Hollywood Studios breakfast options lacking. There is only one table-service restaurant that serves breakfast, but on a positive note, it’s always a good time when you’re dining with Minnie Mouse and friends.

Disney Junior Play n’ Dine – Breakfast at Hollywood and Vine

Finding a Caffeine Boost at Hollywood Studios

  • Save

At Disney Hollywood Studios, breakfast is served in a glass with a healthy dose of caffeine at two primary establishments.

Joffrey’s coffee kiosks can be found in 3 locations across the park:

  • Joffrey’s Coffee Kiosk adjacent to Premier Theater near Muppet*Vision 3D
  • Joffrey’s Coffee Kiosk at the entrance of Pixar Place near Toy Story Midway Mania!® Attraction
  • Joffrey’s Coffee Kiosk outside of The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™ Attraction

Joffrey’s features typical hot brews and a few specialty items. Lovers of iced drinks won’t find as big of a variety here, but for one member of our family, Joffrey’s iced chai lates here are the best she’s had. Yes, both Dunkin’ and Dutch Bros can step aside.

As previously noted, Starbucks operates a full-service location out of the Trolley Car Café, so guests won’t have to do without their favorite caffeinated drink in the morning. If you aren’t familiar with the Starbucks menu, you can find a wide variety of iced coffees, lates, Americanos, teas and other popular concoctions, as well as a decent breakfast menu.

Insider Tips for Eating Breakfast at Hollywood Studios—Answering Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

With limited options at Disney Hollywood Studios, breakfast isn’t a meal many people stop to enjoy. Since wait times on rides are lower in the a.m. hours, guests spend their time in queues, opting for a quick bite before leaving their hotel and an early lunch in the park.

If you do plan to enjoy breakfast at Hollywood Studios Park, here are some things you should know:

  1. Do I need an advanced dining reservation to eat breakfast at Hollywood Studios?

Advanced dining reservations (ADRs) are only available for table service restaurants and are highly advisable. The Disney Junior Play n’ Dine Breakfast at Hollywood and Vine is the only morning table service meal available at Hollywood Studios, so it can be popular. The fact that it’s a character meal only increases the appeal. If you plan to dine here, we recommend that you secure an advanced dining reservation. It’s highly likely that walk-up openings will not be available on the day you visit.

  • Are there vegetarian or vegan options available during breakfast at Hollywood Studios

Disney sets the standard when it comes to handling special diets and food allergies. If you are looking for vegan or vegetarian options, we recommend you take a look at the menus linked above. You’ll often find an allergy menu on the page or an indication as to whether they offer vegan or vegetarian options. The same holds true for diners with food allergies.

  • I have the Disney Dining Plan. Can I use dining credits toward breakfast at Disney Hollywood Studios?

The Disney dining plan will be reintroduced in 2024 and allots guests credits for 2 meals per day. With the Disney Quick Service dining plan, guests are offered 2 meals a day at quick service restaurants. Since most quick-service breakfast locations within Hollywood studios do accept the Disney Dining plan, you would be able to redeem credits at these locations.

However, you would not be about to use this same plan to dine at Hollywood and Vine. Table service restaurants are only included with the Disney Dining Plan. For more information on Disney’s different dining plans, click here.

  • Does Hollywood Studios have an age restriction on character dining?

No, Hollywood Studios does not impose an age limit on their character dining experience. Restaurants are open to both the young and young at heart.

  • Does SciFi Diner have breakfast?

The SciFi Diner is a popular Hollywood Studios table service restaurant offering both lunch and dinner, but this venue does not currently serve breakfast.

  • What time is breakfast served at Disney Hollywood Studios?

Opening times vary by restaurant and are dependent upon park hours for the day. In general, most restaurants serving breakfast open when the park does.  A few establishments may be open during Early Theme Park Entry.

Are There Alternatives to Eating Breakfast in the Park?

Since morning crowds at Hollywood Studios are some of the lightest of the day, many guests opt to spend the hours experiencing attractions while the lines are shorter. If you fall into this camp but still need fuel to get you through until lunch, here are some alternatives to eating breakfast at Disney Hollywood Studios:

  • Eat breakfast at your resort before heading over to the park. This calls for an earlier wake-up call, but since most Disney World resorts offer quick-service and grab and go items, you can easily dine before hopping on the bus, boat, monorail or Skyliner.
  • If you’ve booked a Disney World Good Neighbor hotel package, many of these establishments include breakfast. Grabbing a few things at the hotel in the morning can save you time and money.
  • When traveling to Disney World, we often bring things from home to eat in the morning. Kind bars, protein shakes, and instant oatmeal are all items that can be eaten in your room before you head out to the parks.
  • Door Dash is another option if you don’t mind eating in your room. Deliveries can be made to your hotel lobby from a variety of restaurants in the area.
  • If you’ve rented a car and plan to drive to Disney Hollywood Studios, breakfast can be grabbed on your way at McDonalds. The restaurant at 1596 W Beuna Vista Drive is a little beyond the park but makes for an easy excursion if you’re driving.

While the breakfast options at Disney Hollywood Studios may be limited, there are still plenty of ways to enjoy a satisfying morning meal. By planning ahead and exploring alternative options, guests can ensure a delightful start to their day at this iconic theme park. So, get ready to create lasting memories and embark on a magical breakfast adventure at Disney Hollywood Studios!
