The Disneyland Resort is in full preparation mode for its upcoming grand reopening on April 30. Not only will Cast Members have to get reacquainted with the park operations, but there’s also all-new health and safety protocol to follow. It is known that the park will look and operate differently than what Guests are used to as Disneyland is no stranger to change. However, we did happen to notice one change that could affect the start of any good Disney park day.
Recently, Disney Parks Blog posted a Foodie Guide to help Guests returning to Disneyland navigate their snack and meal options. The guide is very helpful, and we can wait to have our favorite Disney eats and treats. However, something was missing: there didn’t seem to be a breakfast option. Carnation Café, for example, will not be reopening with the parks and there is no sign of Disney character dining, so we won’t be able to get Mickey waffles for the time being!
Now, as we look at the dining locations within the parks that will be open, there is no sign of a breakfast menu anywhere, aside from the Market House, also known as Starbucks, on Main Street. After examining the menus on the Disneyland website, we found there is no breakfast menu listed even though the parks will be open starting at 9 a.m. Lunch and dinner menus are available and start at 11 a.m. Additionally, there is no way to reserve a character breakfast as characters will still be keeping social distanced from guests upon reopening.
Note that menus and dining operations are always subject to change, but as of this article’s publication, it would appear that the restaurants that are reopening at Disneyland won’t be serving their typical breakfast items that Guests are used to.
Disneyland’s Galactic Grill, for example, isn’t even displaying a breakfast menu. This location, prior to the park shutdown, offering Guest-favorites such as frozen coffee beverages and breakfast burritos. Those are no longer available on the menu.
Red Rose Taverne in Fantasyland and even Jolly Holiday Bakery will not be offering their usual breakfast fare — at least not when Disneyland reopens. It appears that you will still be able to grab a coffee at the Jolly Holiday in the morning, but not a breakfast sandwich.
So where can you grab breakfast? The Downtown Disney District will be your place to grab some breakfast before hitting the parks. Guests can opt for a sit-down dining experience by having breakfast at the Uva Bar & Cafe. If you’re looking for more of a quick-service option, there is La Brea Bakery that has some wonderful brunch options!
