    Good Morning we are going to be staying at Riverside resort March 4-11 and want to go into the Magic Kingdom early for breakfast how early can we go and what quick service is available inside the park for breakfast?

    Mornin', Nancy! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Grab a cup of coffee and let's get your crew fueled up for a fun-filled day at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and you can also make it a magical part of your day at the Magic Kingdom Park. The Park actually allows Guests to enter about an hour before the official opening and spend some time shopping and snacking on Main Street, U.S.A., so you'll definitely have time to pick up your early morning meal.

    One great quick-service option is the Main Street Bakery, which is the spot for your daily Starbucks fix. You'll find mostly baked goods like muffins and bagels here. Main Street Bakery opens early (8 a.m. on a 9 a.m. Park opening day, for example), so it may be your best bet for an early nibble.

    If you don't mind waiting until the "official" Park opening, Gaston's Tavern in Fantasyland serves a cinnamon roll as big as Gaston's head (which is pretty big!), and Sleepy Hollow in Liberty Square has one of my favorite things in the whole world - the fresh fruit waffle with hazelnut spread. It's so good!

    For more of a sit-down experience, you can make a reservation for Be Our Guest Restaurant, Crystal Palace, or the Plaza Restaurant, which also open early for breakfast.

    Nancy, you can find a list of all of the Magic Kingdom dining locations, along with menus and hours of operation, on the Walt Disney World website. I hope that helps you find the perfect spot for your morning nosh.

    Thanks for stopping by to see us, Nancy. Wishing you a wonderful (and tasty) Walt Disney World vacation!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
