Two Snack Credit Breakfast on the Go at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Breakfast options at Disney Hollywood Studios are what I call, limited. While there is a Character Breakfast it's focused on the Disney Junior set which can make it less than desirable for some older Disney travelers. I wasn't sure where I would end up eating the morning we went to that Park, but I ended up with one of the most delicious treats of my day.






We arrived at the Park shortly after rope drop, and I still hadn't had my coffee. Happily, I knew that the Trolley Car Cafe was a Starbucks so I made a bee line down Hollywood Boulevard. This was my first time in the Trolley Car Cafe, and I must say I was very pleased. Along with my familiar, standard Starbucks foods, the grab and go section had one of the broadest varieties of grab and go foods that I've seen at Disney.

The line moved very quickly, and I was happy to overhear the cast members taking orders being kind and patient in explaining the different types of drinks to the guest next to me. It's good to know that Disney guests can walk into a Starbucks and not be made to feel out of place when ordering.

I ordered my grande coffee and a fruit tart for 1 DDP snack credit each. The friendly cast member behind the counter informed me that all of Starbucks drinks are available for 1 snack credit, so if I wanted to order something "fancier" and in a venti I was welcome to. My son took full advantage of that and wound up with a pretty elaborate Frappuccino.

I got our food at the pick-up counter, grabbed some napkins from the very large cream and sugar bar, and headed outside to find someplace to eat. Strolling back across Hollywood Boulevard we opted for a shady table near Min & Bill's. It was the perfect stop to stop and people watch while getting my morning caffeine fix, this was a breakfast choice for us that could easily become tradition.

I choose a fresh fruit tart because of how bright and beautiful the fruit looked on top, it did not disappoint. In fact it even exceeded my expectations as when I cut into the tart I discovered not a bed of custard the fruit was one, but a light fresh whipped cream that wasn't overpoweringly sweet and really let the fresh fruit shine. The tart crust was reminiscent of a crisp sugar cookie, and while nothing special on it's on delivered a nice balance to the whole thing.

For 2 snack credits, this was a pretty great light breakfast to get me going for the morning. I enjoyed the Trolley Car Cafe and recommend a stop in for anyone searching for a great morning pick me up to grab and go.

We normally use snack credits at Starring Rolls Cafe for bagels or muffins.
