Restaurant Guides

Lets start with Main Street USA, and the first dining location nearest the entrance is Tony’s Town Square Restaurant which is just on your right as your enter the park. This Italian Table Service Restaurant is named after the restaurant featured in the Disney classic, Lady and the Tramp, with plenty of décor celebrating the movie. It has a full Italian Menu with plenty of pizzas and pasta dishes, but you gotta try the spaghetti and meatballs for that authentic Tony’s experience. READ MORE...

If you are in need of some caffeine, then you can head to the Main Street Bakery, which is the park’s Starbucks location. Expect to find all your favorite Starbucks offerings as well as some exclusive merchandise and pastries. It has a pleasant décor that fits in perfectly with Main Street USA and is usually my first stop when entering the Magic Kingdom!

Next door to the Main Street Bakery is the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor, that is a great place to grab a delicious frozen snack on a hot day. They serve cones, sundaes and ice cream floats all using amazing hand-scooped ice cream. They are huge portions, so are great to share with your family and friends and I usually go for the Brownie Sundae with hot fudge because if you’re going to treat yourself, you may as well go all out!

Right behind the Ice Cream Parlor at the end of Main Street is the Plaza Restaurant, another table service restaurant that serves classic American cuisine like meatloaf, burgers and sandwiches. It is nicely decorated with turn of the century decals and offers an amazing view of the castle while you dine. They also serve desserts and ice cream from the parlor next door.

On the other side of Main Street USA is Casey’s Corner, named after the famous poem, Casey at the bat, which of course means it’s baseball themed and serves all your favorite ballpark foods including foot long hotdogs and their famous corn dog nuggets. It’s a great place to grab a quick lunch or a light dinner before heading to the shops or your next attraction.

The final dining location in Main Street USA is the Crystal Palace Restaurant that offers character dining buffets. In my family, we have a tradition of going to the Crystal Palace for a breakfast buffet on the first morning of our Disney vacation. It’s a great way to start your trip, and if you make an early enough reservation, you could enter the park before the gates of the Magic Kingdom officially opens, which will give you some time to get some great photos of an empty Main Street USA or the perfect selfie with Cinderella’s castle! They serve classic American food, so expect pancakes, eggs, bacon and an assortment of other delicious breakfast items during the breakfast buffet and for lunch and dinner you can find a selection of delicious meats, fish and vegetables as well as a full wine and beer menu.

We now move onto the dining locations within Tomorrowland, starting with the quick-service eatery, the Tomorrowland Terrace Restaurant. At the time of recording this video, the Tomorrowland Terrace Restaurant is currently offering food that is usually served at the Columbia Harbour House over in Liberty Square. But normally, they would serve burgers, salads and pasta dishes. The terrace has amazing views of the castle, which is why they host a special dessert party during the Happily Ever After firework display in the evenings.

Next is the Lunching Pad, a quick-service booth, which is located under the Astro Orbiter, that is open for breakfast and lunch. You can grab a breakfast sandwich or the Cheshire café cat tail pastry in the mornings or a pulled pork sandwich, hot-dogs or pretzels during lunch time. They have a nice selection of drinks including slushies and hot coffee.

For a cool treat, you can try Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies, which can be found between the two shops, Merchant of Venus and Star Traders. It’s a small booth that offers sundaes, milkshakes, smoothies and ice-cream cups as well as a selection of other drinks.

Over towards Space Mountain, you can find two kiosks, the first is the Cool Ship, which offers the famous Disney Churros and a selection of cool drinks. and the second is Revive-Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea Company that has a great selection of hot and cold coffees and teas including specialty Tomorrowland themed and seasonal offerings.

The final restaurant in Tomorrowland is Cosmic Rays Starlight Café. They serve regular fast food like burgers, hot dogs and chicken strips. They also have the plant-based impossible burger and a great selection for kids. Cosmic Rays has a huge dining area, so you’ll always find a table, and you can also be entertained by the amazing Sonny Eclipse!

There are plenty of dining choices in Fantasyland, and the first kiosk you will come to next to the mad tea party teacups is the Cheshire Café. Here is where you can grab a pretzel or a Cheshire Cat tail pastry or a choice of hot and cold beverages including slushies. Moving further round into Fantaslyand, next to The many adventures of Winnie the Pooh, you can find Storybook Treats, another kiosk specializing in ice-creams, sundaes floats and drinks. They always offer a special limited item, like this Peter Pan float, so grab it while you can! Right next door is the Friars Nook, another kiosk that is open for breakfast and lunch. In the morning they serve breakfast sandwiches and different bowls that usually come with tots, and for lunch, they serve hot dogs, Mac & Cheese or buffalo chicken and they all come served with tots. I like that this location is offering something other than the usual fries, so come and grab some tots from Friars Nook.

We now head to Cinderella’s castle, where you can find Cinderellas royal table. There is a reason why this is one of the most popular restaurants in all of Walt Disney World, because you’re eating inside the castle and as this is a character dining restaurant, you will dine with Disney Princesses. It can be expensive with breakfast costing over $60 per head and lunch and dinner can be as much as $80 dollars a head, but I guess that’s the cost of dining with royalty. There are plenty of dishes to choose from, like steak, fish or duck for lunch and dinner and baked quiche, French toast or a traditional breakfast in the morning. There are also plenty of plant-based options at all meal times. Cinderellas Royal Table is notorious for being difficult to get a reservation, so I would suggest booking a table as soon as you possibly can!

Our next restaurant is besides It’s a small World and is the Pinocchio Village Haus. This quick-service restaurant has a nice quaint setting, with plenty of decorations featuring characters from Pinocchio. They have a nice selection of flatbreads, Caesar salads and chicken strips along with plenty of sides like breadsticks, garlic knots and soup.

Now, let’s take a look at the dining locations in new fantasyland starting with the Be Our Guest restaurant. This Beauty and the Beast Restaurant is obviously inspired by French cuisine, and has a fixed menu for lunch and dinner. For $62 for adults and $37 for kids, you can choose from appetizers such as a meat and cheese board, French Onion soup, or lobster bisque, and for your entrée you can choose from steaks, scallops, chicken or pork tenderloin, as well as a nice selection of desserts. Being a French restaurant, They also have an extensive wine menu along with plenty of other beverages. This is a huge restaurant with three dining areas, and during dinner you may come across the beast roaming in his study. Similar to Cinderellas royal table this is a popular restaurant, so make you reservations early.

If you head over the bridge further into New Fantasyland, you will come to another Beauty and the Beast themed dining location, Gaston’s Tavern. Here is where you can find the popular LeFou’s Brew, which is an alcohol free frozen apple juice with a hint of toasted marshmallow and topped off with a passion fruit and mango foam, It’s delicious and can also be purchased with a souvenir stein. Gaston’s Tavern also serves warn cinnamon rolls and the Grey Stuff cupcake as well as plenty of other beverages.

We finally end the Fantasyland dining locations with Prince Eric’s Village Market, a kiosk selling snacks and drinks. You can find jumbo pretzels with a beer cheese sauce, huge Turkey legs, cookies, fruit and the mermaid donut.

Now let’s head over to Liberty Square and first up is Columbia Harbour House. This quick-service restaurant offers great seafood choices like clam chowder, grilled salmon, lobster rolls and a load of other delicious choices. It has seating on two levels, so I would recommend heading upstairs as you will usually be able to find an empty table. As I mentioned before, you can currently try this menu at the Tomorrowland Terrace restaurant over in Tomorrowland.

Over by the Hall of Presidents, you can find the Liberty Square Market, where you can find a selection of fresh fruit, chips, cookies and a selection of drinks and after 11am, you can grab a turkey leg or a Mickey Pretzel.

If you head back towards cinderellas castle, on the edge of liberty square is Sleepy Hollow refreshments, a kiosk selling freshly made waffles and funnel cakes with a variety of fruity fillings and nice selection of hot and cold drinks including specialty coffees. In the evening you can also try the delicious sweet and spicy chicken waffle sandwich that has become one of the guest favorites snacks over the last couple of years.

If you head back into the main part of liberty square, you will come to the liberty tree tavern, a table service restaurant with a New-England cuisine. This is an all-you-care-to enjoy style restaurant, so instead of a buffet, you choose a particular platter and sides, and if you want any extra of anything, your server will bring it right to you. The platters include a variety of meat like turkey, pot roast, oven roasted pork with a selection of sides like stuffing, mashed potato and mac & cheese. Starters, desserts and drinks are included too and for $39 each, I think it is a pretty good deal, so go check out the Liberty Tree Tavern if you get the chance!

The final restaurant in Liberty square is the Diamond Horseshoe, and similar to Liberty Tree Tavern, this is a table service restaurant which offers a BBQ menu that is all-you-care-to-enjoy served family style. On the BBQ platters, you will find smoked brisket, sausage, chicken, pulled pork, Mac & cheese, beans, mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables. This is also $39 a head and comes with starters, desserts and a choice of non-alcoholic beverages. If you like BBQ, then this is the restaurant for you!

Next are the four dining locations in Frontierland, starting with the kiosk Westward Ho which is opposite the Country Bear Jamboree. They serve breakfast sandwiches and donut holes in the morning and mickey pretzels and churros during lunch and dinner, and of course a variety of drinks including coffee and slushies as well. Next is the quick-service restaurant specializing in Mexican and South-western food, Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Café. It has a huge dining area, and you can try burgers, tacos, fajitas, salads and nachos. The great thing about Pecos Bill is the loading station, where you can add your own salad and sauces at no additional cost which is a nice little extra! Opposite Peco Bills is the a kiosk named Golden Oak Outpost that is open seasonally, but they offer loaded fries, chicken strips, cookies and a choice of beverages including slushies.

Another seasonal dining location over on Tom Sawyers Island is Aunt Polly’s Dockside Inn that serves delicious BBQ biscuit sliders, Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, pretzel sticks, brownies and a selection of drinks. It’s a lovely little location offering amazing views of Frontierland, and is still a little known dining location within Magic Kingdom, so go visit Aunt Pollys if you get the chance!

Now let’s take a look at the final land within Magic Kingdom, Adventureland. Starting with the small quick service restaurant Tortuga Tavern. It has a nice pirate themed décor with indoor and outdoor seating. You can try a variety of hotdogs, their amazing jerk-smoked brisket sandwich or the classic turkey leg.

Next to the Enchanted Tiki room is the Aloha Isle booth selling the famous Dole whips, which you can get in a cup or as a float with pineapple juice. If you have never had a dole whip before, I highly recommend the classic Pineapple and vanilla swirl, which is the perfect refreshing snack on a hot day.

Located near the entrance to Adventureland is the popular Spring roll snack cart, which is open seasonally, so if you see it open, I highly suggest trying these delicious unique egg rolls. The menu changes often, but they have had a variety of flavors over the years including cheeseburger, pepperoni pizza and buffalo chicken to name a few. Grab a coupe while you can.

Sunshine Tree Terrace is another kiosk near the entrance of Adventureland that also offers Dolewhips, floats, ice-creams and pot-stickers. Unlike Aloha Isle, which offer pineapple and coconut flavors, Sunshine Tree Terrace offers Orange or Strawberry flavors, so I’m sure you will be able to find the DoleWhip for you!

We now come to the final dining location in Magic Kingdom, and probably my favorite at the moment, the table service restaurant Jungle Navigation Co. Skipper Canteen. If you’re a fan of the Jungle Cruise or Adventureland, then you will fall in love with the Skipper Canteen. Not only does it have an exciting menu that offers truly unique dishes like thai noodles and Char Siu Pork, it is also beautifully decorated with lots of trinkets and Easter eggs relating to the society of adventurers and explorers. If you are looking for a special Adventureland dining experience, then this is the perfect restaurant for you.
