Two Favorite Breakfast Locations Are Returning at Walt Disney World

It’s a good day to be a Disney food fan! We previously shared the news that two Walt Disney World all-you-care-to-enjoy buffets are returning including Magic Kingdom Park’s The Crystal Palace and EPCOT’s Biergarten Restaurant. That news fell on the heels of the reopening of Boma Flavors of Africa which took place today, August 20, as the first buffet to reopen since the pandemic at Walt Disney World. Disney is now sharing exciting news about the most important meal of the day – BREAKFAST! Two Disney breakfast locations are returning to help us get the day going with a delicious meal.

While Cinderella’s Royal Table at Magic Kingdom has been open for some time, breakfast has been missing… but not anymore! According to Disney, “Start your day in the most enchanting way – breakfast is back at Cinderella’s Royal Table at Magic Kingdom Park starting August 27! Reservations are available beginning August 24.”

Food offerings from Kusafiri Coffee Shop and Bakery at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

One of our very favorite ways to enjoy breakfast is to snag a delicious bite from Kusafiri Coffee Shop and Bakery at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park. Disney has shared it will reopen on August 29 and will have delicious new entrées to try while traveling through the Park. Did you know “kusafiri” means “to journey” in Swahili?

  • Spiced Potato Hand Pies – Vegetables and potatoes wrapped in pastry served with harissa aïoli and coriander chutney
  • Marinated Chicken Flatbread Sandwich – Marinated chicken topped with cucumber–tomato salad, tahini sauce, and greens served with house-made chips
  • Red Chili Hot Dog – Spicy hot dog topped with cucumber–tomato salad and harissa aïoli served with house-made chips 

Keep in mind that neither of these options offers a character breakfast. Kusafiri is a quick-service restaurant, and while Cinderella’s Royal Table previously offered a character meal at Magic Kingdom, currently that is not available. If you’re looking for character dining for a Disney breakfast, you’ll want to check out restaurants such as Chef Mickey’s at Disney’s Contemporary Resort or Topolino’s character breakfast at Disney’s Riviera Resort.

Will you be making a “kusafiri” on over to these fantastic breakfast options? Check out Disney’s menus before visiting so you’ll know exactly where to find the must-dos like the Mickey waffle (Cinderella’s Royal Table) and a massive cinnamon roll (Kusafiri). Just be sure to snag your breakfast dining reservations at Cinderella’s Royal Table as soon as possible as they will surely go fast!

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and runDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways, and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. There isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 18 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family, we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
