Carnation Cafe breakfast

They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and that is definitely true when you’re getting ready to conquer the Disneyland Resort! Whether you prefer a character meal to start the day or just a great place to grab a bite, I’ve put together the best breakfasts at Disneyland for you.

For character breakfasts, check out Goofy’s Kitchen or the PCH Grill. Goofy’s Kitchen is located at the Disneyland Hotel and is a favorite of most guests. There is a breakfast buffet with 5 different stations to choose from including Mickey Mouse waffles and pancakes. And don’t forget to try Goofy’s specialty-peanut butter and jelly pizza! Characters vary but you’ll get to see many favorite Disney friends at this breakfast.


The PCH Grill is located at the Paradise Pier resort and features the Surfs Up! Breakfast with Mickey and Friends. It’s also a buffet and there is an omelet station, Mickey waffles and a delicious banana-caramel French toast! You’ll enjoy a great breakfast while visiting with some cool Disney friends.

For non-character dining, you’ll find some delicious eats inside both parks:

At River Belle Terrace in Disneyland you’ll have a great view of the Rivers of America as you enjoy your biscuits and gravy. Or help yourself to a delicious Mickey pancake while you watch for the Mark Twain Riverboat to pass by. But the best breakfast option at the River Bell Terrace is the cinnamon roll French toast! It comes with scrambled eggs and bacon or sausage and is to die for!


Another great breakfast spot in Disneyland is the Carnation Café. There is a charming patio area as well as indoor seating. You may even get to meet Disney legend, Chef Oscar while you are there. Along with the classic Mickey waffles, be sure to try the apple-granola pancakes. Delicious!

Flo's Tamale Breakfast

For a unique breakfast experience, head to Flo’s V-8 Café in Disney California Adventure. Flo’s is an American Southwest diner where you can get comfort food with a little twist. One of those foods is the tasty chicken tamale breakfast. You won’t find that anywhere else! Another delicious option at Flo’s is the brioche French toast. It’s served with salted caramel sauce and bananas and will give you a great jolt of sugar to start your day!

Eating at the Disneyland Resort is just as much a part of the theme park experience as going on the rides and viewing the shows. Make sure you start your day off right with a delicious Disney breakfast!
