Disney Dining Plan for Disney Breakfast

I recently returned from a magical getaway to Disney World. For the first time, my package included a Disney Dining Plan, which included one Quick-Service Meal, one Table-Service Meal, and one snack each day.

I wanted to maximize my money on this trip. Now, “frugal” and Disney don’t really go together, but still — I was hoping to spend as little out-of-pocket as possible once I got to the parks. I knew that I’d get plenty of food each day with my 2 included meals (more than plenty, actually — more food than I normally eat. And I didn’t want to return from the land of magic with extra pounds to lose). I sure wouldn’t need a “snack” each day, so I planned to use my snack as breakfast.

Prior to leaving, I did some research and made a list of snack items in the parks that would make a suitable Disney breakfast.

Here’s what I came up with:

Magic Kingdom:

Main Street Bakery: Starbucks, smoothies, scones, coffee cake

Casey’s Corner: muffins, croissants

Main Street Confectionary: fruit kabob, caramel roll

Aloha Isle: pineapple spear

Gaston’s Tavern: cinnamon roll, fruit cup, apples with caramel dip

Prince Eric’s Village Market: various fruits

Prairie Outpost & Supply: pecan caramel roll

Liberty Square Market: many fruit options

Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies: muffins, whole fruit, smoothies

Lunching Pad: muffins

Tomorrowland Terrace: Greek yogurt, yogurt, fruit cup, fruit

 

 

Epcot:

Kringla Bakeri (Norway): Danish, cinnamon roll, waffles

Africa Refreshment Coolpost (Africa): fruit cup

Liberty Inn (America): fruit cup

Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie (France): baguette, croissant, puff pastry, strawberry smoothie, fruit parfait

Promenade Refreshments (Canada): fruit cup

Refreshment Port (Canada): croissant doughnut

Electric Umbrella: fruit cup

Fountainview Cafe: various fruits, muffins, croissants, banana bread, lemon bread, coffee cake, scones, smoothies

Sunshine Seasons: Danish, croissants, fruit cup, muffins, bagels, parfait, cinnamon roll, yogurt, oatmeal, pastries

My choice … fruit parfait from Sunshine Seasons

Sunshine Seasons Epcot parfait breakfast

Honestly wasn’t that good — and had to “fight” that it was indeed a “snack” …

 

Animal Kingdom:

Harambee Fruit Market: various fruits

Kusafiri Coffee Shop and Bakery: turnovers, pastries, cinnamon rolls, muffins,  croissants, bagels, fruit cup, yogurt

Drinkwallah: fruit cup, whole fruits

Pizzafari: fruit cup, yogurt parfait, oatmeal, cinnamon roll, muffins, Danish

Safari Coffee: Danish, muffin, crumb cake

 

Hollywood Studios:

Animation Courtyard, ABC Commissary: strawberry parfait

Backlot Express: strawberry parfait

Backlot Cantina: pineapple cup, apples slices with caramel, other whole fruits

Peevy’s Polar Pipeline: pineapple cup, apples slices with caramel, other whole fruits

Cool Set Productions: pineapple cup, apples slices with caramel, other whole fruits

Writer’s Stop: muffins, bagels, Danish, cinnamon bun, yogurt, pecan caramel roll

Hey Howdy Hey Takeaway: Danish, cinnamon roll, granola bar

Wheezy’s Breezy Freezy: whole fruit, trail mix, granola bar

Anaheim Produce: pineapple cup, apples slices with caramel, other whole fruits

Beverly Sunsets Sweet Spells: Danish, pecan caramel roll, whole fruit, pineapple spear

Fairfax Fare: yogurt, fruit cup, granola bar, cinnamon roll, Danish

Starring Rolls: cinnamon roll, croissant, Danish, fresh fruit tart, muffin, strawberry parfait, whole fruit

Hollywood Studios Starring Rolls Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcake

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcake at Starring Rolls — yes, I am hanging my head and confessing that this was “breakfast” one day

Remember that the snack credit each day is for one item only — so you can’t get, for instance, a muffin AND a beverage. I carried a bottle of water along with me for that. Sure, I’d prefer a carton of milk or juice, but I don’t want to pay $3 for that or use a snack credit for it.

Have you used snack credits with the Disney Dining Plan for Disney breakfast? If so, what is you favorite option?

  1. If I ever get to go there, you’ll have to help me figure out how this works. In the meantime, I continue to dream.

  2. This is not a proper answer to what you asked, but I loved eating at the Liberty Tree Tavern and the Crystal Palace. The whole experience is more or less out of body, for me. Thanks again, Jill!

  3. Wow! This will be really helpful for those researching their Disney trip and trying to figure out if they want the dining plan or not.

Thanks for taking the time to comment. I enjoy hearing your thoughts.
