Dad and Mrs. Mom are the king and queen of breakfast at Walt Disney World. We probably spend more time figuring out where to eat breakfast than any other meal.

We love breakfast. Omelets are our specialty, we’ve done a whole trip with the theme the search for the perfect omelet, but we’ll do pancakes, breakfast burritos, bacon, eggs, sausage… Maybe I should break out into a little “these are a few of my favorite things…” Yes, I know. Not Disney but it was Mary Poppins that sang it.

Dad’s 5 favorite places to eat breakfast

What are Dad and Mrs. Mom’s 5 favorite places to eat breakfast? Thought you’d never ask.

Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory – Sassagoula Floatworks is the food court in Port Orleans French Quarter and one of the BEST restaurants in all of Walt Disney World. It’s a hidden gem. Breakfast was incredible.

The custom made omelets were stuffed with goodies. They were hot and fresh. Oh and you can get one of the fresh pastry’s to go along. Heaven! We love Sassagoula!

Character Breakfasts – Disney does a really good job at breakfast buffets and the character breakfast buffets at WDW are really special. We’ve tried Tusker House, Chef Mickey’s and Crystal Palace, but any of the character breakfasts are pretty good.

Wolfgang Puck Express – Wolfgang Puck Express is kind of hard for breakfast because it’s in Disney Springs and it doesn’t open until 9:00. I will say that Wolfgang Puck Express serves one of the best breakfasts on property. The omelets are really good. As much as we are parks early in the morning, we’ve taken time out to head over to Wolfgangs.

Grand Floridian Cafe – The Grand Floridian Cafe is a nice quiet place for breakfast and a good breakfast. The cafe is not as “snooty” as the rest of the Grand Floridian. It’s a nice, laid back place for a good meal. The food is good and bountiful. There are some really good options here including Lobster Eggs Benedict.

Olivia’s – speaking of nice, quiet, laid back places to eat breakfast. Olivia’s Restaurant in the Old Key West resort takes the prize. This is Mrs. Mom’s favorite place at WDW for breakfast. I like it, but haven’t quite found the right thing to order. We were there just a couple of weeks ago and were one of 4 tables that had people at them. There were about 30 tables empty. The food is good, it’s almost never crowded and the atmosphere is really neat.

Breakfast may be our favorite meal. It’s important to get the day off to a good start.
