Although Epcot has the largest amount of restaurants in all the Disney parks, its later opening time of 09:30 means its breakfast options are more limited than other parks. There are, however, a select few restaurants where you can grab a bite to eat once the main gates are open. This article will guide you through the best family breakfasts in Epcot. Another of our articles features the restaurants in Epcot for families for all meal times.
At Epcot, there are both table service and quick service restaurants that are available for a late breakfast meal. Quick service restaurants are where you order and collect food at a kiosk window and then find suitable seating in a canteen-style setting.
Table service restaurants operate like a restaurant outside of the Disney parks and a server will take your order and bring your food to your allocated table. Table service restaurants usually require you to book in advance and Disney now allows you to do this 60 days before your trip.
Highchairs are available in all restaurants throughout Epcot and if you have trouble finding one, a cast member will be more than happy to assist you. My family has also found it beneficial to pack a set of kids’ cutlery, as all cutlery at Disney is adult-sized and it gives our children their independence while eating.
Disney does a fantastic job of accommodating dietary requirements, and most restaurants have separate dietary menus to suit you and your specific needs. If a restaurant doesn’t have this option, you can discuss it with a dietary trained cast member who will help you substitute items of the meal to make it fit your requirements.
All parks have a designated baby care centre and Epcot’s can be found in the Odyssey Centre in the World Celebration section of the park. Not only is the care centre a great place to take a break from the park and care for your baby, but they’re also where your child will be taken to and cared for if they happen to get lost in the park.
Due to the pandemic, Disney dining plans are currently unavailable and it’s best to check the official Walt Disney World Website for any updates regarding your trip.
So, if you’re heading to Epcot and you want to know where the best Epcot breakfast for families can be found, keep on reading!

Which Restaurants Provide the Best Breakfast Options in Epcot?
Epcot is a foodies paradise and people take joy in exploring the different pavilions and trying a selection of foods from around the world.
The breakfast options at Epcot are lacking, and it may be difficult to find a substantial meal that the whole family will love. With that being said, the best breakfast at Epcot option goes to Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie in the French pavilion.
Their wide selection of pastries and sandwiches are foods that are easy to eat and simple enough for your little ones to enjoy. The quick service restaurant also has indoor seating to keep you out of the sun and give you a much-needed break while you enjoy your food.
