Top 10 Restaurants in WDW

  1. California Grill – Contemporary Resort
    1. This is an upscale restaurant located at the top of the Contemporary. It offers a beautiful view overlooking Magic Kingdom. There was a bassist and pianist when we went that offered a wonderful ambiance. We did the brunch, and absolutely loved it.
  2. Beaches and Cream – Beach Club Resort
    1. This is very hard to get reservations for, but it is a very fun atmosphere. You can order the kitchen sink, which is a $34 sundae that is enough to feed four people; if you order, they ring bells and sirens go off as they bring it to your table. This is a fantastic option if you’re coming from Epcot and want to relax in the air conditioning with steak fries, a sandwich, and ice cream.
  3. Skipper Canteen – Magic Kingdom
    1. This restaurant hasn’t been very busy when we’ve went. We have been able to walk-in without a reservation. We love this table service because it offers variety; they serve African and Asian cuisine. The kids’ menu options are my favorite at this restaurant. The servers are working as “skippers” inspired by the Jungle Cruise attraction, which creates a fun environment based on the ride.
  4. The Hollywood Brown Derby – Hollywood Studios
    1. While this is on the pricier end, it is one of the yummiest options within Hollywood Studios. We ate here when attending Dine with an Imagineer. It was a great experience, and we learned a lot from our imagineer while indulging in a 4-course meal.
  5. Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue – Fort Wilderness Resort & Campgrounds
    1. This is a great experience for kids and families. The food isn’t our favorite, but the show is unlike any other. It is the perfect place to go if you know you’re only going to be at Disney once in your lifetime. They serve dinner family style, and it is all-you-care-to-enjoy southern-style food including fried chicken and ribs.
  6. Sunshine Seasons – Epcot
    1. Our favorite quick service is Sunshine Seasons right next to Soarin’. It isn’t pricey, and has a cafeteria-style set-up inside the Land Pavilion. There are Asian options, healthier options, comfort food, and desserts. We love all of the different options in one place; it is the perfect combination of convenience and variety.
  7. The Crystal Palace – Magic Kingdom
    1. My family’s favorite restaurant for breakfast is this character dining buffet. Winnie the Pooh and his friends join you and your family for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. My parents love the puffed French toast at breakfast.
  8. Splitsville – Disney Springs
    1. My all-time favorite restaurant in Disney Springs. It is one of my favorites in all of WDW property. While we usually don’t bowl, it is a two-story bowling alley/restaurant. The prices aren’t too expensive and the portions are very reasonable. They have sushi, sandwiches, salads, and pizza. The sushi rolls are gigantic and taste amazing.
  9. Trails End – Fort Wilderness Resort & Campgrounds
    1. This is one of the hidden gems in Walt Disney World. It is the same type of food as Hoop-Dee-Doo, but a buffet. It is one of, if not the best value on property because of the price and unlimited amount of food.
  10. Boma – Animal Kingdom Lodge
    1. This buffet is offered at breakfast and dinner. Boma offers African-inspired cuisine as well as some lighter options. There are soups, salads, beef, turkey, chicken, and salmon at dinner. At breakfast, offerings include quinoa, yogurt, eggs, potatoes, pancakes and waffles.
