Some of our favorite places to eat at Walt Disney World!
Some of the best food in the world can be found at Walt Disney World. Along with the amazing food Disney provides excellent themes and service! This is a few of our favorites in no particular order.
1. T-Rex Cafe in Downtown Disney
Make sure to have a reservation or you’re looking at a 2 hour wait during peak dinner time. The decor of the restaurant is awesome, every corner is unique and fun. Every 20 minutes the lights dim and the t-rex comes to life, as well as all of the other prehistoric animals.
It’s a little bit pricey (about $20 or more per entree). I’m going to be honest, I assumed the food was going to be bland and you were paying for the experience not the taste. That was until we got our food. It was so amazing! Everyone’s food was delicious. I ordered the Footprint Flatbread which was an appetizer and my mom ordered the Prehistoric Pasta and we both shared our food. My fiancé ordered the Mastodon Stuffed Chicken and the one bite he let me have of it was superb.
Drinks were also super delicious. All the alcoholic drinks come with a souvenir cup for an extra fee but I’m a sucker for souvenir cups. It was only $5 more which is very reasonable.
2. Columbia Harbour House in Magic Kingdom’s Liberty Square (next to the Haunted Mansion)
The food here was really good, the main theme was seafood. The price range per entree is $10+ . I got the fried shrimp platter with broccoli and it really hit the spot. The kid’s meal are served with grapes and yogurt. It was a really cozy spot and it was in a good area to take a break.
3. Plaza Ice Cream Parlor in Magic Kingdom’s Main Street USA
4. Yak & Yeti™ Restaurant in Animal Kingdom’s Asia
Asian inspired cuisine with kid friendly American meals. We just stopped here for a quick snack and kid’s meal. I got a side of chicken fried rice (for only $4!) that was enough to fill 2 people and a kid’s cheeseburger which was served with grapes and carrots. I regret not eating a real meal from here because the fried rice was yummy! Though it filled me up enough that I didn’t need more food anyways. The actual entrees were a bit pricier (about $15+) but it’s so much food for the price. We also enjoyed a draft beer and feature frozen drink, the Yak Attack, for the expected theme park prices ($7.50 beer and $9 frozen drink).
5. Chef Mickey’s at the Contemporary Resort
Chef Mickey’s was an amazing experience to say the least. While the price point is a little higher (around $40 per adult), my fiancé and I enjoyed the expansive buffet and our son really enjoyed all the characters.
The buffet had all of the typical breakfast foods and more. There was a hot station with eggs, meats, and potatoes, tons of fruit to choose from, pastry station, cereal station and of course the famous Mickey waffles!
This restaurant is tucked away in Italy at EPCOT. The decor is stunning, every detail makes you feel as if you’ve been transported to Italy. The food was really good as well, I got pasta e fagioli soup, my fiancé had fettuccine alfredo and Joseph had the kids pizza.
The pizza was coal fired and so amazing. The restaurant imports water from Pennsylvania because it has the same water qualities as that found in Naples, Italy to try and achieve an authentic taste. This restaurant was wonderful, but make sure you have a reservation so you don’t have to wait too long for a table.
7. ‘Ohana at Disney’s Polynesian Resort
‘Ohana was probably my favorite meal of our most recent trip. It was our first time there and definitely exceeded expectations. The food is served family style in large pots to reinforce the family feel and the meaning of ‘Ohana.
Your server is your “cousin” and they bring POG juice to the table which is so amazing. It’s a blend of passion fruit, orange, and guava juices. They also bring a basket of breads including a pineapple coconut bread.
Mickey, Pluto, Lilo & Stitch come around to all the tables and interact with everyone.
8. Goofy’s Candy Company at Downtown Disney
This my go to spot every trip we take! Goofy’s has tons of candy and desserts to choose from. You can even create your own dessert by choosing a cookie, marshmallows, an apple or Mickey shaped Rice Krispie treat. You then choose which type of chocolate to have them dip it in (white, milk or dark), toppings (such as sprinkles, candy, etc.) and which type of chocolate you’d like drizzled on top. They also carry treats such as popcorn, cotton candy and slushy drinks.
9. Splitsville at Downtown Disney
Splitsville is a bowling alley, restaurant and bar. This place is more than a typical bowling alley, they have a large menu that can meet anyone’s taste. They offer everything from burgers to (delicious) sushi!
So far I’ve only tried the loaded fries and some sushi but I can tell you that the food is really good. Splitsville exceeds all expectations of a “normal” bowling alley!
10. Earl of Sandwich at Downtown Disney
If your looking for a sandwich that’s better than average, look no further. Earl of Sandwich almost always has a line, but it moves quickly. Each sandwich is made with fresh baked bread that finishes baking while they cook your sandwich. they also have soups, salads, wraps and lots of delicious sides and desserts. Everything is made to order just how you’d like it.
Kids Turkey Sandwich
