We love finding new restaurants and trying new food at Walt Disney World. I put together a list of my favorite spots in Walt Disney World so that you’ll share your favorites, too!
Please tell me that I’m not the only one who believes a vacation to Walt Disney World is 50% about the food! I like to say that I’m not a regular foodie, I’m a Disney foodie.
This is a completely subjective list of my favorite places to eat at Walt Disney World. Some of them might be your favorites, too!
My Favorite Food at Walt Disney World
Be Our Guest
(Magic Kingdom) – Be Our Guest is immaculately themed to the inside of the Beast’s Castle, making it a must-see experience. We ate in the Rose Gallery, which features Belle and the Beast dancing in the center of the room surrounded by tapestries.
It was the perfect spot for a toddler because it is a little quieter than the Ballroom and a little less frightening than the West Wing. This trip I got to try the Grey Stuff (spoiler: it was delicious!).
I will admit that the appeal of this restaurant is more about the atmosphere than the food, but they have several dishes I really enjoy like the Carved Turkey Sandwich and the French Dip sandwich.
(Magic Kingdom) – We didn’t go to Aloha Isle for a meal, but for a Dole Whip. This pineapple dreamsicle treat is almost always my favorite snack of the trip. On our last trip, they added pineapple Dole Whip on top of a pineapple upside down cake and my whole mouth exploded.
(Epcot) – Arguably the best counter service in Epcot, Tangierine Cafe is in the Moroccan Pavilion and features schwarma platters (which is similar to gyros). We like to split a Lamb Shawarma Platter and a Mediterranean Sliders Combo so that we got to try a bit of everything. It was delicious and SO MUCH FOOD.
Some things on the plate may not be familiar, so if you have an extremely picky eater you might want to have a backup plan.
Flame Tree BBQ
(Animal Kingdom) – This summer Flame Tree BBQ rolled out a new menu and we were anxious to give it a try. We split a Ribs, Chicken and Pulled Pork Sampler that was delicious. I especially loved the Jalapeño cornbread, which really wasn’t too spicy but it had a ton of flavor.
Wolfgang Puck Express
(Disney Springs) – If you have a day planned at Disney Springs (especially if you are on the Dining Plan), I would definitely plan to eat at Wolfgang Puck Express. Their salmon was one of the best things I ate all week.
Earl of Sandwich
(Disney Springs) – Two words: Holiday Turkey. It’s a Thanksgiving Meal wrapped into a sandwich. When I was pregnant at Walt Disney World, I’m not ashamed to say I had to go back for a second one (a different day, of course!)
(Epcot) – My mouth is actually watering as I type the name Le Cellier. This elegant Table Service steakhouse is in the Canada pavilion at Epcot. We have eaten here twice when my parents have kept the kids so we could have a date night. It’s always the highlight of our trip.
It is definitely a splurge, but it will be the best thing you eat all week. My husband had the Ribeye and I had the New York Strip. I don’t even like steak typically, but this is heavenly. And one of my favorite parts of the meal was the pretzel bread they serve before the meal. I’m telling you…I have dreams about this stuff!
Ok, that’s my list, but I’d love to hear what makes your must-eat list!
