We’ve listed our top 10 favourites here (though you should be sure to check which are included in your dining plan, if you have one). Here they are, in no particular order.
Be our Guest, Magic Kingdom
Inside Beauty’s Castle, the setting is all chandeliers and opulence. Enjoy a quick lunch (but still with china plates) in Mrs Potts or opt for a cabaret dinner. Little princes and princesses have their own choices from the grill. The service rates particularly highly here.
Flame Tree Barbecue, Animal Kingdom
For a quick lunch at reasonable prices, try ribs, chicken or pulled pork sandwich with house special Flame Tree rub seasoning.
Trails End, Fort Wilderness Camping Ground
Camping doesn’t have to mean roughing it and Trails End is recommended for the stupendous buffet breakfast or a la carte lunch and dinner.
‘Ohana, Polynesian Resort
A character meal is a pre-requisite when planning a Disney vacation with children. We can’t speak highly enough of breakfast with Lilo and Stitch. Dinner in this Hawaiian-themed restaurant is all-you-care-to-enjoy, with storytelling and games.
Kouzzina by Cat Cora, Boardwalk
The Greek celebrity chef’s authentic family recipes provide a taste of the old world in this casual restaurant. An adults-only alcoholic treat would be an Ouzo-tini with their meal.
Sanaa, Animal Kingdom
Savour Indian-influenced dishes in this African themed restaurant while zebra, gazelle, kudu, giraffe and other exotic animals wander by outside. The ultimate experience is the 4-course lunch with animal experts on hand to enhance your enjoyment.
Via Napoli, Epcot
Via Napoli offers a mouth-watering selection of authentic Italian food. What child can’t be calmed with the promise of a pizza at the end of the day? At Christmas, the candlelight procession is a Disney tradition, with orchestra and celebrity re-telling of the nativity story.
Flying Fish Café, Boardwalk
Fine dining and of course seafood, since you’re by the ocean. Try the Chef’s Tasting Wine Dinner or dine with an Imagineer.
Hollywood Brown Derby, Hollywood Boulevard
Be spirited back to the age of the silver screen in this replica restaurant. Enjoy timeless dishes and authentic cocktails.
Columbia Harbour House, Magic Kingdom
Fried fish, seafood or chowder predominate or choose speciality sandwiches such as Anchors Aweigh. Quick and casual to get you back to the serious business of Disney!
