One of the best ways to kick off any day at the Walt Disney World Resort is by indulging in a filling and delicious breakfast, and while there are plenty of great options to choose from, a cinnamon roll is always a great idea. These doughy treats are warm, flaky, smothered with cinnamon sugar and frosting, and good to the very last bite.
There are several locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort that feature cinnamon rolls on their menu, and each one is slightly different and unique, making them the perfect breakfast item or even snack throughout the day. Here are the very best cinnamon rolls to indulge in while at the Walt Disney World Resort and where to find them!
Gaston’s Tavern – Warm Cinnamon Roll
The first cinnamon roll at the Walt Disney World Resort that comes to mind for many Guests can be found at Gaston’s Tavern in the Magic Kingdom’s Fantasyland. This quick-service location brings the hangout of the Disney villain to life with a rustic interior filled with leather, antlers, and, of course, a massive painting of Gaston himself.
Guests who stop by Gaston’s Tavern at any point throughout the day can indulge in a Warm Cinnamon Roll which is absolutely large enough to share, but no one will want to. The Warm Cinnamon Roll is a massive portion of a perfectly doughy roll with ribbons of cinnamon sugar inside and the top is drizzled with gooey icing. The best pro-tip for enjoying a Warm Cinnamon Roll at Gaston’s Tavern is asking for an additional side of icing for dipping and drizzling!

Main Street Bakery – Multiple Options
The other location in the Magic Kingdom where Guests can find delicious cinnamon rolls is the Main Street Bakery between Crystal Arts and the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor. This turn-of-the-century-styled bakery is a quick service location that features Starbucks beverages as well as breakfast sandwiches and fresh pastries throughout each day and is a popular pit stop for many Guests.
Always on the menu at the Main Street Bakery is Mickey Cinnamon Roll, which is actually three perfectly prepared cinnamon rolls, one larger one for Mickey’s head and two smaller attached ones for his ears. Also featured is the specialty Anniversary Cinnamon Roll, which helps to celebrate the Walt Disney World Resort’s 50th anniversary by taking the Mickey Cinnamon Roll and topping it with EARidescent sugar and a chocolate pressed penny in the middle that features Cinderella Castle and the 50th logo.
Kusafiri Coffee Shop & Bakery – Colossal Cinnamon Roll
Disney’s Animal Kingdom is home to several quick-service locations that are open for breakfast each day since so many Guests love to get an early start in the Disney Park. Kusafiri Coffee Shop & Bakery is a fantastic location to enjoy for breakfast and can be found in the village of Harambe in the Africa section of the Park, just before the main entrance to Kilimanjaro Safaris.
Kusafiri Coffee Shop & Bakery features a small ordering counter and adjacent quiet dining area where Guests can feel very tucked away and enjoy their meals in quiet. The most popular menu item by far is the Colossal Cinnamon Roll which is absolutely massive and features three cinnamon rolls melded together to form Mickey’s head and ears. With folds of cinnamon sugar inside and a very thick drizzle of icing, the Colossal Cinnamon Roll is a great way to kick-start any day in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
Tamu Tamu Refreshments – Colossal Cinnamon Roll
Also found in Harambe in Disney’s Animal Kingdom is Tamu Tamu Refreshments, another quick-service dining location across from Dawa Bar and Tusker House Restaurant. Tamu Tamu Refreshments is open daily for breakfast and snacks and Guests can order at an outdoor counter before enjoying their selections in a quiet open-air courtyard that will make them feel as though they are across the globe in Africa.
During breakfast hours, Guests can enjoy an array of sweet and savory options at Tamu Tamu Refreshments including the popular Colossal Cinnamon Roll. Identical to the Colossal Cinnamon Roll found nearby at Kusafiri Coffee Shop & Bakery, this option is technically interchangeable with the other cinnamon roll, but the courtyard at Tamu Tamu Refreshments is so charming and relaxing that it is the perfect location to stop and enjoy a sweet treat at.
City Works Eatery & Pour House – Jon Bun Jovi
The West Side in Disney Springs is home to City Works Eatery & Pour House, a table service restaurant that serves up delicious American favorites and hundreds of craft brews in an upscale sports bar setting. The interior of the restaurant features dozens of televisions for watching any big game, and Guests can enjoy their meals inside in the main dining room or on a nearby outdoor patio with great views of Disney Springs.
Guests who dine at City Works Eatery & Pour House for brunch on the weekends can choose from an extensive menu with some cleverly named items that are sure to be delicious. The Jon Bun Jovi is a playfully named shareable item on the menu that features a massive cinnamon roll served warm and smothered with vanilla icing. It’s absolutely large enough for Guests to share as a beginning to their brunch, or it also makes for an over-the-top main entrée option!
P & J’s Southern Takeout – Cinnamon Roll
The Campsites at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort is a completely unique location that allows Guests to stay at the Walt Disney World Resort at traditional campsites, RV slips, or charming and cozy cabins. Guests who enjoy the Disney Resort can zip around on rented golf carts, enjoy the beauty of nature, take in the rustic amenities, and stop by a quick service eatery for delicious food on the go.
P & J’s Southern Takeout is open daily for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and features a convenient menu of selections that Guests can bring with them back to their campsites or enjoy at a nearby set-up of picnic tables with wonderful views of the woods. On the menu for breakfast is a Cinnamon Roll which is a traditional take on the indulgent treat with perfectly doughy rolls, cinnamon sugar filling, and thick and gooey icing drizzled on top. It’s the perfect treat to kick off any day spent exploring The Campsites at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort.
