Everyone’s in a hurry to get the day going when they arrive at Disneyland Resort, but like Mom always said, breakfast is the way to jump start your morning – for staying power, fuel up!
Here are five of our favorite breakfasts. Share your favorites with us.
In Disneyland park: We like starting the day early in the theme park and getting photos with the characters checked off our to-do list. Minnie & Friends Breakfast in the Park at Plaza Inn fills us up and sends us on our way with cereals, made-to-order omelets, scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, biscuits and gravy, French toast, Mickey waffles, muffins, croissant, Danish and fresh fruit. And photos with Minnie and friends. Check!
But if you’re in more of a hurry to get to the attractions, grab a bite at River Belle Terrace, where the generous Mickey Mouse pancake is a favorite. Or go for the “Mark Twain” with scrambled eggs, potatoes, bacon or sausage and biscuit. Carb- and protein-loaders will love the pancakes with scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage. Or just eat light with a beautiful plate of fresh fruit. Or throw caution to the wind enjoy a gooey cinnamon roll. Nothing is more than $8 on the menu.
At Disney California Adventure park: If you’ve got little girls, nothing beats starting the day at Ariel’s Disney Princess Celebration. Sit indoors or out and share the “breakfast tier” with fresh fruit, cheeses and cold cuts and pastries, bagels and croissants, followed by an ample platter of scrambled eggs, bacon, turkey sausage and potatoes. All those beautiful princesses make a stop at the table for memorable photos and smiling faces.
Eat efficiently at Pacific Wharf Cafe, where your scrambled eggs and bacon come in an edible sourdough boule with a bite of fresh fruit. Or grab a portable croissant with scrambled eggs, cheddar and bacon. Of course, the most healthful is a warm bowl of oatmeal with brown sugar, honey and raisins. Nothing is more than $6.
At Paradise Pier Hotel: If you’re not in a hurry to get in the park, what’s better than breakfast with the Big Cheese? Surf’s Up! Breakfast With Mickey and Friends features made-to-order omelets, flatbreads, Mickey waffles, chocolate peanut butter banana French toast, smoothies, a parfait station, chilaquiles (one of our favorites), smoked salmon and all the fixins’ and more. It’s a satisfying meal, and Mickey Mouse and pals dance and sing and make a stop at every table.
