Best Disney World Restaurants For Any Type Of Appetite

The parks might be at the heart of a Walt Disney World vacation, but a trip to the Florida resort can be as much about the dining experience as the rides. There are countless restaurants across the property varying widely in price, cuisine and ambiance. Options run the gamut from quick-service carts slinging popcorn and jumbo turkey legs to a AAA Five Diamond award winning dining room. But, how to choose the best Disney World restaurants?

To make planning a bit easier, here are a few personal favorites based on more than a decade's worth of multi-annual Disney trips – mostly centered around eating.

Reservations can be made by calling (407) WDW DINE (be sure to tell them if someone is celebrating a birthday/graduation/anniversary etc.) or online. Also, make the restaurant aware of any dietary restrictions. Disney's full service restaurants are extremely accommodating – typically chefs will discuss any food needs and craft a special meal, or walk guests through a buffet line so nobody in the party is left out. Kosher meals can be requested in advance, or are available at some counter locations.
