Disney is known for having some amazing food and today I would like to talk about my top 5 Disney World restaurants. Disney World has so many amazing places to eat that it is hard to narrow down my top 5 but here we go! Note: This is just my personal list so you may disagree.
#5 50’s Prime Time Cafe (Hollywood Studios)
It is a blast from the past when you head over to 50’s Prime Time Cafe in Hollywood Studios. On my last trip to Disney World, October 2015, I went to the 50’s Prime Time Cafe for the first time and it was quite the experience. When you walk in it loos like you stepped onto the set of Dick Van Dyke or Leave it to Beaver. When Disney themes something they theme it! The seats and table all look like the were plucked out of the 50’s. Your water or waitress hands you your menus and tells you to set the table as you mom would have done. “Eat all your vegetables” is a phrase you will hear too as you finish you meal. When I went I had the chicken Cesar salad and it was really good. They have meat loaf, pot roast and some of the best fried chicken you will ever have! When it comes to theme and atmosphere 50’s Prime Time Cafe takes the cake.
A little funny story from when I went. I was there with my step mom and little brother, the waitress didn’t realize I was a brother and not Dad so she kept calling me dad but it was all in good fun.
#4 1900 Park Fare (Grand Floridian Hotel)
If you want a character experience and love breakfast then you have to go to 1900 Park Fare ! It has to be the best breakfast buffet I have ever been too. Fresh fruit, waffles, eggs, bacon, puff pastries and the best guava juice! Sit back and enjoy a wonderful breakfast and as you eat Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Alice, Mad Hater, and Marry Poppins will stop by. They chat and sign you autograph books and take pictures. It is a great experience, even if you don’t have kids. It is a wonderful setting and a great atmosphere. I would even say it is better than Mickeys Kitchen.
#3 ‘Ohana ( Polynesian Village Resort)
If you love BBQ, Polynesian theme, and amazing food then you must go to ‘Ohanas! All you can eat of the best pot stickers, wings, noodles followed by all you can eat grilled shrimp, chicken and steak. After you have completely filled your stomachs they bring out Bread Pudding à la mode with Bananas-Caramel Sauce and it is amazing! I am not a big bread pudding fan and I loved it. They also have mac and cheese for kids as well as a brownie dessert. I do recommend that if you or your kids are picky eaters this might not be the place you, $60 is a lot for mac and cheese! It is a fun place to eat that the whole family can enjoy and they also have some really great cocktails!
#2 Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant (Hollywood Studios)
One of my all time favorite restaurants and home of my favorite burger! The Sci-Fi Angus Burger, which is topped with Pulled Pork, Sriracha Barbecue Sauce, Swiss Cheese, and Pickled Apple Slaw, is out of this world! The food will fit any type of diet and is another example of great food at Disney. Not only is the food amazing but so is the theme. Step back into the past and get in your T-Bird style table and “Dine-In” as you watch old classic Sci-fi films in what looks like a drive in theater. It is such a fun experience that the whole family will enjoy, just make sure to get reservations soon as it fills up fast. If you have a large party you will want to have a reservation as walk ups will be very had to get.
#1 Be Our Guest (Magic Kingdom)
With out a doubt Be Our Guest is my favorite restaurant on the whole property! It is fun, magical, and has some of the best food. Imagine dinning in the ballroom of the Beast’s Castle or in the forbidden West Wing! If you go for lunch it is more of a quick service but for dinner it is a regular sit down restaurant where the waiter will come to you. If you are planning a trip to Disney World and want to go to Be Our Guest you must make reservations and you should do it at the 180 day mark. The chicken , steak and shrimp are all amazing and the Grey stuff is 100% delicious! I have also heard the Strawberry Cream Cheese Cupcake is really good!
So these are my top 5 places to eat at Disney World. No matter what restaurant you go to reservation are a must ( this doesn’t include counter service). I also encourage people to share and sample each others food. Some people may not like that but my family find it a great way to try all the Disney food has to offer with out having to actually get everything on the menu. I hope this helps you when you plan your Disney World trip! Let me know what you think and some of your favorite places to eat in the comments below! Have a magical day!
I totally agree with you about 1900 Park Fare! That’s been my favorite character dining experience so far. I didn’t have as great of an experience at Be Our Guest unfortunately (I’ll be publishing my review of it tomorrow). The others on your list sound good as well – thanks for the recommendations!
