I’m headed to Disneyland next week and for the first time in a long time, the hotel I’ll be staying at does not have an included breakfast! Finding a hotel that provides breakfast is usually a must for my family, because it is convenient and saves so much money. But, for this trip, a free breakfast just isn’t in the cards.
With that being said, I started to look around at the restaurants at the Disneyland Resort to find out where and what I could eat early in the morning. Luckily, I have compiled a list of restaurants and their menus, right here in this post, so that if you want to eat breakfast at Disneyland, you’ll know where to go!
