If you like to be in the parks as soon as the gates open, you may not have time for breakfast beforehand. Luckily, there are a few great breakfast options at Disney’s Hollywood Studios to kick start your Disney day and give you that all important morning energy boost. Here is our guide to the Best Family Breakfasts in Hollywood Studios!
In all Disney parks, there is one main breakfast restaurant option, table service at Hollywood & Vine. Brunch is available at quick service restaurants.
In a quick service restaurant, you can order and collect your food at a kiosk window and find a suitable table for your family in a canteen style setting. Quick service breakfasts are a great option if you have a busy day ahead of you and you don’t have time for a proper sit down meal.
Table service restaurants are like an ordinary restaurant outside of the parks. A server will seat you at an allocated table, take your order, and deliver your food. It is important to note that table service restaurants need to be booked ahead of your trip and Disney now allows you to do this 60 days in advance. For more information on these and quick service lunch and dinner in Hollywood Studios see here.
A great thing about Disney is that they do a fantastic job at accommodating for dietary requirements! In table service restaurants, specific dietary menus can be requested from your server and in quick service restaurants, you can ask at the kiosk on ways to substitute your meal to meet your personal needs.
Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, Disney dining plans currently aren’t available, but you can keep up to date with all the changes and how they will affect your trip on the official Walt Disney World Website.
All restaurants at Disney have a generous amount of highchairs available, and if you can’t seem to find one, you can ask a cast member who will be more than happy to help you. Cutlery at Disney is all adult sized and we’ve found it’s best to pack our kids their own kid-sized cutlery so they can eat as they would at home.
The baby care center in Hollywood Studios is found in guest relations as soon as you enter the park. Baby changing stations, a nursing room, and toilets are found in the center and should your child get lost, they will be escorted here and cared for by a cast member until you collect them.
So, if you need some inspiration for the best family breakfasts in Hollywood Studios, then keep on reading!
Quick Service Breakfast Restaurants at Hollywood Studios
ABC Commissary on Commissary Lane is more of a “brunch” quick service restaurant because of its 10am opening time.
The theming inside the air-conditioned restaurant is that of an art déco film studio. There is plenty of indoor seating, and it is a great place to enjoy your morning meal while not overheating in the process.
ABC Commissary doesn’t offer specific breakfast style foods, so adults have the option of salads, tacos, and sandwiches.
The kids’ menu features a turkey sandwich, pork tacos, grilled cheese & ham sandwich or an uncrustables sandwich.
All sandwich options come with carrot and apple slices, and a choice of water or low-fat milk. The pork tacos are served with Mexican Rice, black beans, and water or low-fat milk.
The dietary menu at ABC Commissary is extensive and they also have a plant based California Burger for all non-meat eaters.
The full ABC Commissary menu can be found here.
Open from 9am and found in Pixar Place is a quick service restaurant called the Market.
The Market is a small kiosk that has no seating and only offers snack type foods on the menu.
With that being said, if you aren’t regular breakfast eaters and just want something small to keep you or the little ones going, you can purchase one of the Disney famous Jack-Jack Num Num cookies that are large enough to share. (And yes, cookies for breakfast are okay, you’re in Disney!)
Assorted chips, bananas, and nacho chips can also be picked up at the Market and enjoyed while strolling to the next ride or show.
The full Market menu can be found here.
Ronto Roasters in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens at 9am and is a must visit for all Star Wars fans.
Limited outdoor covered seating is available, but most food options at Ronto Roasters are great grab and go meals.
There is no dedicated kids’ menu at Ronto Roasters so if you do decide to eat here, the little ones will have to order off the adults menu.
A special Ronto morning wrap, overnight oats, pork rind wraps, and plant based wraps are on the menu for all to enjoy.
The full Ronto Roasters menu can be found here.
Rosie’s All-American Café
Another late start brunch option is Rosie’s All-American Cafe. The cafe opens at 10am and, like ABC Commissary, it doesn’t have a specific breakfast style menu.
Rosie’s All-American Cafe shares a seating area with 2 other restaurants on Sunset Boulevard, however, it is the only one open at 10am, so adequate outdoor seating should be available.
The food served at Rosie’s is obviously all-American and features burgers, hotdogs, and chicken nuggets.
Little fussy eaters will be happy with the kids selection of chicken nuggets, a power pack, or a turkey sandwich, all served with a smoothie, fruit and a choice of water or low-fat milk.
Because of Rosie’s location, it is a great breakfast option if you have reservations for Rock N’ Rollercoaster or the Tower of Terror.
The full Rosie’s All-American Cafe menu can be found here.
The Trolley Car Café
The Trolley Car Cafe is Hollywood Studios dedicated Starbucks venue and is found on Hollywood Boulevard as soon as you enter the park.
There is outdoor seating with umbrellas for shade and you can expect to find all your Starbucks favourites on the menu.
The breakfast sandwiches come with a selection of fillings and are easy breakfast options for the whole family. You can even take them on the go to avoid wasting time having a sit down meal!
The full Trolley Car Cafe menu can be found here.
Although an ice-cream parlour, you can grab blueberry Mickey waffles here with syrup and cream – but only until 11am!
Table Service Breakfast Restaurants at Hollywood Studios
Hollywood & Vine
The only table service breakfast option at Hollywood Studios is at Hollywood & Vine, opposite Echo Lake.
Hollywood & Vine is also the only character dining experience in the park and your little ones can enjoy their breakfast with their favourite Disney Junior stars.
At Hollywood & Vine, kids can build their own breakfasts with a selection of entrees like eggs, pancakes, and waffles. They can then add sides of potatoes, bacon, or fruit!
The adults’ menu features breakfast staples like bagels, pancakes, and French toast.
If you’re looking for a special breakfast experience for your kids, you should definitely head over to Hollywood & Vine.

Which Restaurants Provide the Best Breakfast Options in Hollywood Studios?
The best Disney Hollywood Studios breakfast restaurants go to Hollywood & Vine, Rosie’s All-American Cafe, and ABC Commissary.
Hollywood & Vine
Granted, Hollywood & Vine is the only table service restaurant serving breakfast in the park, but even if it had competition, it would still be up there with one of the best at Hollywood Studios.
Character dining restaurants are fantastic experiences for kids of all ages (and adults too!). It’s not every day you get to enjoy breakfast with your favourite Disney stars, so if you have the budget to, I definitely recommended booking at least one character dining experience on your trip.
The food options at Hollywood & Vine are basic and the little ones, including fussy eaters, are guaranteed to something they enjoy eating.
Rosie’s All-American Cafe and ABC Commissary
Joint for best quick service breakfast in Hollywood Studios are Rosie’s All-American Cafe and ABC Commissary.
Their downfalls are the fact that they open an hour after the park does and they don’t serve breakfast style foods.
With that being said, both restaurants serve full meals that’ll satisfy the hunger in the whole family’s bellies and keep you going until dinner time.
In my opinion, breakfast at Disney’s Hollywood Studios isn’t up to par with some of the other Disney parks, but there are definitely options that your whole family will love.
