Looking for the best places to eat breakfast at Hollywood Studios?
From a magical character meal to a coffee and danish, there are many options for a Hollywood Studios breakfast.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios is perhaps the most “manageable” of the Disney theme parks, simply because of its size and the number of attractions to experience.
This may mean that you would like to spend more time that is devoted to checking out the dining experiences here.
All prices are correct for January 2023.
What Breakfast Choices are at Hollywood Studios?
Disney’s Hollywood Studios is a relatively small park so it does not have an enormous amount of options for breakfast.
However, don’t let this discourage you from eating the first meal of the day in this entertaining park! There really is something for everyone.
There are a number of full-service restaurants in Hollywood Studios, but most do not serve breakfast.
It is likely that you will get breakfast at one of the quick-service dining locations in the park. Which one will depend upon what type of food you want to eat and also on the location you would rather be in early in the morning.
As the choice of quick-service dining is more extensive we will start by looking at what is available for a counter-service breakfast in Disney Hollywood Studios.
Quick Service Dining Breakfast Options
These are the Quick Service options that you have for breakfast:
- Anaheim Produce
- Backlot Express
- The Trolley Car Cafe
- Oga’s Cantina at the Walt Disney World Resort
- Docking Bay 7 Food And Cargo
- Woody’s Lunch Box
There are other Quick Service dining options in Hollywood Studios but currently, they are not open for breakfast.
The Trolley Car Cafe
If you are just looking for a place to grab a quick snack and a coffee for breakfast this is the one for you.
The Trolley Car Cafe is a Starbucks at Disney World location so you can get all your usual favorites here.
It’s certainly in a convenient location on the corner of Hollywood Boulevard, just a short walk from the entrance to the park.
You can get all of your usual Starbucks favorites from here as well as some Disney special items. They have a good range of breakfast sandwiches.
As you would expect from the name, there is some theming going on here.
Look around and you will see vintage photos and props – the space has high ceilings and has about as spacious a feel as possible for somewhere which is essentially a very busy Starbucks!
It is very nicely done, but the main emphasis is on getting in and out of here as quickly as possible. There is no seating available.
Disney knows a thing or two about design to serve the maximum amount of guests as quickly as possible and repeats its concept of having two separate lines with exactly the same items in it.
Lines can be long but usually move quickly.
There isn’t any seating inside but you can usually find some nearby.
You can use your Starbucks App and gift cards here, as of course you can use cash and credit card. Your Disney Magic Band will work here too.
However, you still can’t use Mobile Order Pick Up as none of the Starbucks locations in Disney have this set up yet.
Look out for the Starbucks Disney-themed merchandise here too. I love to collect travel mugs from each park.
This is a good place to grab breakfast if you are in the park for Early Morning Magic as it is quick and you can concentrate on getting to the rides to get a head start on the day. This is a good place to get breakfast before the park opens officially to the general public.
This is a very limited breakfast option as it is just an outdoor location on Sunset Boulevard on the way to the Tower of Terror and Rock N Roller Coaster.
You will find fresh fruit, churros, and Mickey Pretzels here.
The offerings are more likely to tempt you later in the day when you want a quick snack and maybe a Mickey ice cream.
It is located just around the corner from The Trolley Car Cafe and has plenty of outdoor sitting so this could be the place to sit and enjoy your Starbucks breakfast.
Oga’s Cantina at the Walt Disney World Resort
This is probably not going to be the first choice for breakfast food at Hollywood Studios, but if you want that Galaxy Far Far Away ambiance early in the morning this is the place to be.
If you are a Star Wars fan, in fact even if you just have a passing interest in the movies, it really is worth a visit to Oga’s Cantina at least once.
It isn’t the cantina that many expected it to be – it isn’t a direct copy from the movies because of course here we are in Batu. However, the decor and atmosphere really do not disappoint.
The only problem is that this is a small place. And it is a popular place. So you do have to plan ahead to get in.
Also, when you eventually do get in, expect that you will be up close and personal with your fellow Hollywood Studios guests.
Seating is limited and close together.
The booths are highly coveted and you will most likely be sharing them with another party. for most people, it is standing room only.
If you are set on visiting Olga’s Cantina you should definitely make an Advance Dining Reservation as soon as you can.
There are sometimes some walk-ins available – ask the Cast Member outside the door what the current situation is.
Oga’s Cantina is a bar with some very interesting alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks choices.
If you are here for breakfast they do offer limited coffee choices, but you may prefer to try the infamous Blue Milk.
Come here for the atmosphere and not the breakfast food though. Your choices are limited to Rising Moon Overnight Oats or a Mustafarian Lava Roll (better known as a cinnamon roll).
Docking Bay 7 Food And Cargo
If you still want that Star Wars experience Docking Bay 7 Food And Cargo is an excellent choice for breakfast at Hollywood Studios Orlando.
Located in Galaxy’s Edge, so it is a bit of a walk from the park entrance but perfectly located to get that early boarding for Rise of the Resistance.
This great dining place is located right next to Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run so you can plan to ride this before or after enjoying breakfast.
I am a huge fan of this quick-service dining location at Hollywood Studios. The food is some of the best of all quick service locations in the park, and I would actually go so far as to say in any of the Disney World parks.
The breakfast choices are limited here but it really is a good place to start the day if you want to tackle Galaxy’s Edge first.
It has the Overnight Oats and the Lava Roll but also offers the Bright Suns Breakfast Platter. This is a Three-Cheese Egg Bite, Pork Sausage, Purple Potato Hash, Mini Mustafarian Lava Roll.
The Bright Suns Youngling Breakfast for kids is also a good option with Scrambled eggs, Purple Potatoes, and Seasonal Fresh Fruit.
Ronto Roasters Breakfast at Hollywood Studios
Another great option for breakfast in Galaxy’s Edge at Hollywood Studios is Ronto Roasters.
I do feel that Disney really did get the eating choices right in this area – all that is needed now is a full-service Star Wars-themed restaurant!
Here are some great choices including what is probably the best plant-based choice for breakfast in Hollywood Studios.
Breakfast menu items include:
- Ronto Morning Wrap – Eggs, Grilled Pork Sausage, Shredded Cheddar, and Peppercorn Sauce in Pita Bread
- Rising Moons Overnight Oats – Oats, Dragon Fruit, Yogurt, Seasonal Fruit
- Triple Suns Breakfast Wrap – Plant-based Egg, Smoky Chickpea-Onion Slaw, and Roasted Tomato Sauce wrapped in Pita Bread
There is plenty of indoor and outdoor seating here so it makes a great breakfast spot to pick when you are visiting Hollywood Studios.
Woody’s Lunch Box Breakfast at Hollywood Studios
Another great place to head to for a quick service breakfast is Woody’s Lunch Box.
One tactic when visiting Disneys Hollywood Studios is to head for Slinky Dog Dash as soon as you can in the morning. This is a very popular ride so it would be a good idea to head there first.
Then a quick breakfast at Woody’s Lunch Box will most likely be a good choice for all the family.
One very reasonably priced and very popular choice is the Hot Cocoa Lunch Box Tart. Let’s think Disney’s twist on pop tarts and you have the right idea.
One has Chocolate Fudge Filling, Hot Cocoa-Marshmallow Fondant, and Mini Marshmallows for $4.49. You can also get a Raspberry and Lemon Blueberry version.
There is usually a Holiday version too.
The Breakfast Bowl is reasonably priced and has Potato Barrels smothered in Smoked Brisket Country Gravy, Scrambled Eggs, and a sprinkling of Green Onions for $8.79.
The Kids’ Breakfast Bowl has Potato Barrels smothered in Smoked Brisket Country Gravy, Scrambled Eggs, and a sprinkling of Green Onions served with a Cuties® Mandarin and Potato Barrels with your choice of Beverage for $5.99.
One particular specialty of Woody’s Lunch Box is the Grilled Cheese Sandwich. Not everyone may want this for breakfast but if you can kind of extend it into brunch then it seems like a better idea.
The great thing is that they actually have a vegan Grilled Cheese sandwich too.
Mobile Ordering at Disney World
One way that you can save a lot of time if you are eating at Quick Service dining venues at Disney World parks and resorts is by using Mobile Ordering.
I tend to still think of this as a relatively new thing, but it was first piloted in 2017.
What is Mobile Ordering?
Quite simply it is exactly what it sounds like. A way for you to order food from your phone for select Disney dining locations.
Most of them are counter-service dining locations, but it is also available in some full-service dining locations.
Here are the Quick Service locations in Disney’s Hollywood Studios where you can use Mobile Ordering.
- ABC Commissary
- Backlot Express
- Catalina Eddie’s
- Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo
- Dockside Diner
- Fairfax Fair
- Kat Saka’s Kettle
- Milk Stand
- Ronto Roasters
- Rosie’s All-American Café
- Woody’s Lunch Box
You need to download the My Disney Experience app on your mobile device. Do this before you arrive at the parks so you are not wasting time dealing with it there.
Of course, all magic and indeed food comes at a price, so you will have to add a payment method to the app if you want to use it for any purchases in the Disney theme parks and resorts
You can use a credit or debit card.
The Mobile Ordering system can be seen by selecting:
You will then see a list of restaurants to choose from. Select the one you want and select order food.
You can then browse through the online menu and select the food that you want.
You will get the chance to review your order before you actually push the order button.
You can make your payment in the app.
If you are ready to make your order then click on “Prepare my Food”.
At this point, it is wise to be fairly close to the dining venue.
Nothing is too far away in Hollywood Studios but just use common sense. Don’t push the button to prepare your food at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo if you are just about to get in line for Tower of Terror!
The app will then send you a notification that your food is ready.
Go to your selected dining place and go to the Mobile Order counter to pick up your order.
It always surprises me how relatively few people use the Mobile Ordering system at Walt Disney World. It’s an incredibly easy system to use and saves you a lot of time.
If you are having breakfast in Hollywood Studios then this is a great opportunity to use the Mobile Ordering system to save some time.
Restaurants at Disney Hollywood Studios Serving Breakfast
There really isn’t any experience quite like Disney’s Character dining.
At the moment there is only one restaurant that serves breakfast at Disney Hollywood Studios. Hollywood and Vine Restaurant is a character dining experience.
If you choose a Disney Character Breakfast you will want to spend a decent amount of time actually in the restaurant enjoying the experience.
This is not something you want to book if you are trying to squeeze every moment out of your time in the park to experience the rides! Disney character dining is an attraction in itself so you should devote a decent amount of time to it.
Hollywood and Vine Character Breakfast
Character dining is back after a long break at Hollywood and Vine.
The breakfast is Disney Junior Play n’ Dine for $42 per adult and $27 per child aged 3 to 9. This does not include tax and gratuity.
At breakfast and lunch Goofy, Vampirina, Sofia the First, and Doc McStuffins appear.
Here are some of the items you are likely to find on the buffet
- Assorted Pastries
- Bananas Foster French Toast
- Bacon and Sausage
- Breakfast Potatoes
- Seasonal Bread Pudding
- Plant-based Frittata with Tomato Jam (plant-based)
- Eggs Benedict
- Salmon and Bagel Casserole
- Sticky Buns
- Chicken and Waffles
- Yogurt Parfait
