No one bakes like Gaston, apparently. Gaston’s Tavern is home to an iconic Magic Kingdom treat that were once served at Main Street Bakery, but when it was converted to a Starbucks location they rolled over to Gaston’s Tavern.
Magic Kingdom is best when it is rope dropped, meaning you get to the park well before its published opening time. To get in as many attractions as possible first thing in the morning you’ll want to have breakfast before you get to the park. But once you’ve accomplished some major rides thanks to rope drop (and using our Lines app), reward yourself with a Warm Cinnamon Roll at Gaston’s Tavern.
This highly themed snack place is fun to visit even if just for the décor and details. Mobile ordering is not offered here so you’ll have some time to check out how Gaston uses antlers in all of his decorating.
This massive cinnamon roll is $5.99 which is the price of most specialty cupcakes at Walt Disney World. But we feel this is a better value than a cupcake. It is large, gooey, buttery, and served warm. Plus, you can ask for extra frosting on the side, at no extra charge!
You can grab a coffee, hot tea, juice, or soft drink to go with your Warm Cinnamon Roll. There’s also the LeFou’s Brew specialty beverage which generally earns strong opinions. This frozen apple juice drink can be refreshing, but it would be too much sugar with the cinnamon roll. Our readers give Gaston’s Tavern a 92% thumbs up rating and it is ranked #27 out of 167 quick snack locations across Walt Disney World.
Now, if you’re looking for a heartier breakfast, you may want to consider Main Street Bakery, a.k.a the Starbucks at Magic Kingdom. Yes, you can pretty much get the same stuff at your local Starbucks, but the selection of hearty breakfast sandwiches is hard to beat elsewhere at Magic Kingdom.
