Breakfast will begin at 8:00 AM through to 10:00 AM, and will be quick service prix fixe at $19.99 plus tax for adults, and $11.99 plus tax for ages 3 - 9. Each breakfast begins with a pastry basket for sharing, and then a choice of entree and self service beverage.

Walks up will be offered if space is available, which is very unlikely. Unlike lunch, pre-ordering of menu items will not be available, and selections will be made inside the restaurant. Reservations began on March 17 using My Disney Experience for dates from March 20 through to June 18 2015.
