Disney Springs breakfast ideas


Breakfast at Disney Springs is a bit of a tricky one, as Disney’s dining and entertainment area doesn’t open until 10am*. However, you are on holiday so maybe you fancy a lay in! Or, maybe you like eating breakfast foods all day long – I hear you my friend, I enjoy both of these things. If you’re having a slow morning, there are some great Disney Springs breakfast and brunch options (some even come with booze, ooh-er), but if you just want to get a jump on the parks with some grub before going to Disney World, breakfast at Disney Springs isn’t your only option.

There are some great (and affordable) places to grab breakfast near Disney Springs if you want to eat early doors, or if your tummy can hold out until 10am, head downtown at Disney for an epic dis-brekkie to start your day. Whatever you decide, this is a great list of the best places to have breakfast at Disney Springs and nearby.

*Some outlets open at 9am.

Disney Springs Breakfast Ideas

Artist Palate at Disney’s Saratoga Springs resort

This fun quick-service counter at Saratoga Springs Resort is a great option if you want to grab breakfast at Disney Springs but the outlets aren’t open yet. The hotel is the closest Disney Resort to Disney Springs and you can walk between Saratoga Springs and Disney Springs in less than ten minutes, via an accesible path. This is as close to a Disney Springs breakfast as you will get before 9am and it has a good, varied menu. Non-hotel guests welcome.

Sample prices: Bagel ($4), chocolate croissant ($4.29), breakfast platter ($12.49)
What to have: Mickey-shaped waffles, of course! ($9.49) and we also liked the Country Breakfast Wrap ($7.99)
Distance to Disney Springs: You can walk to Disney Springs in 10 minutes (TOP TIP: Park at Disney Springs free of charge and walk to breakfast to save on parking charges at the hotel)
Open: From 7am

Letterpress at Hilton Orlando Buena Vista – the secret Disney Springs breakfast

If you are looking to stay at a resort close to Disney that isn’t a strictly a ‘Disney’ hotel, the Hilton Buena Vista is worth checking out. Usually costing less that a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, this is a Disney Partner hotel and that means guests have access to some exclusive Disney perks. See our post on staying on site at Disney for more info. When it comes to an early morning snack, the Letterpress Cafe inside the hotel is a decent Disney Springs Breakfast option, since the hotel is right next door and has a walkway directly to Disney Springs. Non-hotel guests welcome.

Sample prices: Breakfast Buffet ($26 – Kids £15), Avocado toast ($20)
What to have: The create-your-own five ingredient omelette is huge! ($20)
Distance to Disney Springs: There is a walkway directly to Disney Springs from the hotel and it takes two minutes to walk. That qualifies as a Disney Springs breakfast to me!
Open: From 7am (Reservations often required)

Oscars at the Waldorf Orlando

The Waldorf Orlando is one of the fanciest hotels in Orlando and it’s always where I suggest people stay if they are honeymooning in Orlando or visiting for a special occasion. If you want to go all-out for a lavish breakfast near Disney Springs, Oscars is a fine-dining restaurant with views over the lush golf course. Food is splendid and the coffee is my favourite brew in Orlando! Plus, it’s less than a five minute drive to Disney Springs and the Walt Disney World Resort. Perfect.

Sample prices: Breakfast Buffet ($38), Pancakes and fruit ($22)
What to have: The Waldorf Astoria brand is known for its Steak and Eggs ($36)
Distance to Disney Springs: The resort (at Bonnet Creek) is 2.5 miles from Disney Springs and a five minute drive.
Open: From 7am

Golden Corral Breakfast Buffet (Vineland) – a wallet-friendly Disney Springs breakfast

For a very different Disney Springs breakfast vibe, you can’t go wrong with the budget-friendly Golden Corral. This all-you-can-eat buffet breakfast is actually really good and brilliant for families with fussy eaters or with lots of different breakfast tastes. Choose from omelettes, to eggs on toast, pancakes, fresh waffles and random options like salad and pizza! And, the coffee just keeps on coming, which is ideal before a day in the parks.

Sample prices: All-you-can-eat buffet ($10.29)
What to have: Made-to-order omelette for the win (included).
Distance to Disney Springs: 5-minute drive.
Open: From 10am

Raglan Road Irish Pub – breakfast at Disney Springs

This authentic Irish Pub at Disney Springs had designs and fittings shipped in from Ireland itself, so definitely feels like the real deal. It doesn’t open until 11am, but serves a full Irish breakfast and all the best American brekkie items of your dreams like – French toast and pancakes. It’s also not as expensive as some of the other breakfast places at Disney Springs, so it’s a top choice if you don’t mind eating a bit later.

Sample prices: Full Irish breakfast ($25), Pancakes ($16)
What to have:’It’s ok to droll’ bread and butter pudding ($20)
Distance to Disney Springs: At Disney Springs
Open: 11am (Reservation recommended)

Earl of Sandwich – the earliest Disney Springs breakfast place to open (no pun intended)

I am big fan of this basic sandwich shop! Probably because basic it definitely is not. If you don’t want anything too fancy, the sandwiches are simple and filling (kids could probably share). I love the hot sandwiches, and the Mexican breakfast burritos fill me up for hours!

Sample prices: Toasted sandwiches ($6.49), Breakfast Burrito ($6.49)
What to have: Sausage Breakfast Burrito (so good! $6.49)
Distance to Disney Springs: At Disney Springs Marketplace
Open: 9am

Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’

This is a super lovely, very popular Disney restaurant and a good choice for breakfast at Disney Springs if you want to eat after 11am. The options are delighfully indulgent, just how a southern meal should be, and the servers do feel like old friends treating you with their home cooking. I always think this is a great choice if you’ve had a full day at the parks the night before and need a lazy morning and a good feed the next day to recharge your batteries. The fried chicken and doughnuts are delicious and ridiculous in equal measures.

Sample prices: Short-rib hash ($24), House-made doughnuts ($10)
What to have: Fried chicken and doughnuts (unnecessarily excessive but great, $30 but can be shared as it’s big)
Distance to Disney Springs: At Disney Springs
Open: 11am (Reservations required)


A steak restaurant might seem like a wild choice for breakfast at Disney Springs but STK has an excellent breakfast menu and it’s one of my favourite places to have a Disney Springs breakfast or brunch. The extra-filling entrees will keep you fed all day and the restaurant itself has a cool, non-twee atmosphere. The Lobster Eggs Benny is the stand-out menu item. So good.

Sample prices: Pork Belly Benedict ($27), Egg White Omelet ($24)
What to have: Lobster Eggs Benedict ($39)
Distance to Disney Springs: At Disney Springs, The Landing
Open: 11am

Gospel Brunch at House of Blues

While not currently on (but rumoured to be returning really soon), the Gospel Brunch is brilliant live music show with an all-you-can-eat buffet breakfast at Disney Springs. Feast on southern favourites (you can try the shrimp and grits but they aren’t for me, personally!) while singing and dancing to Gospel music performed by an incredible band and singers. Since the pandemic, the Gospel Brunch has been paused but you can still eat breakfast at House of Blues. Music will still be playing (just not live).  Food is ordered from the menu and just as tasty, but will work out more expemsive without the all-you-can eat option if you are a big eater.

Sample prices: Tennessee Toast -French toast ($13), Breakfast Burrito ($17)
What to have: Barnyard Breakfast ($14)
Distance to Disney Springs: At Disney Springs, West Side
Open: (Brunch is Sunday-only) from 10am – 2pm with live music.

City Works

This is a casual sports bar, but it does offer some Disney Springs breakfast options – all with silly and fun names. Without being sexist, could be one for the dads while the women go shopping – or vis-versa!

Sample prices: Jon Bun Jovi Cinnamon Roll ($11), The Clash Avocado Smash ($17)
What to have: ‘What’s the story, morning glory’ breakfast tacos ($18)
Distance to Disney Springs: At Disney Springs
Open: 11am

Gideon’s Bakehouse

The bakery has become ‘insta-famous’ in recent years, thanks to its giant and indulgent cookies. The cookies are great but even with the virtual line that has been introduced, you’ll still wait a while for the goods.

Sample prices: Cookies ($6), Speciality coffee ($6)
What to have: ‘What’s the story, morning glory’ breakfast tacos ($18)
Distance to Disney Springs: At Disney Springs, The Landing.
Open: 10am – but the line is always about an hour long, so probably not the one unless you *really* want to try the cookies…
