An Overview of Dining Options at Magic Kingdom

Skipper Canteen

Let's Recap!

1. Quick-Service

Need to grab a bite fast so you don’t miss out on any of the Magic Kingdom fun? These quick-service options have got you covered!

  • Main Street Bakery— This Starbucks location is the perfect place to go for a breakfast sandwich and your morning cup of joe.
  • Casey’s Corner— There’s nothing quite like munching on a hot dog while walking down Main Street, U.S.A., and Casey’s Corner knows how to make a hot dog right!
  • Tomorrowland Terrace(open seasonally)— This Tomorrowland eatery is only open when the park is really busy, but it tends to have some tasty (if a bit typical) offerings when it is.
  • Lunching Pad— Another great place to go for a tasty hot dog, The Lunching Pad is super quick, making it a great place to stop if you’re in a big hurry.
  • Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe— Cosmic Ray’s is a super fun place to eat thanks to the entertainment offered by an animatronic alien. Grab some rotisserie chicken or a burger, and get ready to be serenaded with some out-of-this-world music.
  • Be Our Guest Restaurant(quick-service for breakfast and lunch)— Ever dreamed of eating in a fairytale castle? At Be Our Guest, you can do just that! Step into the Beast’s castle and enjoy a delicious, French-inspired meal.
  • Gaston’s Tavern— Another great Beauty and the Beast-themed restaurant is Gaston’s Tavern. This place is a cross between a snack stand and an actual restaurant, and serves up some delicious cinnamon rolls, among other things.
  • Friar’s Nook— With a menu that is constantly changing, Friar’s Nook certainly keeps us on our toes. Their current menu includes some super tasty “totchos”, AKA tater tots smothered in cheese and/or other delicious toppings.
  • Pinocchio Village Haus— Flatbread pizza anyone? Pinocchio Village Haus has some super tasty pizza options as well as an awesome view of the boats from “It’s a Small World” as they float into the ride.
  • Columbia Harbour House— Believe it or not, Magic Kingdom even has a quick-service stop for seafood. The lobster rolls and shrimp platter are pretty darn good at this location, and we love the chowder on those rare chilly days in Florida.
  • Sleepy Hollow Refreshments— If you’ve not had a waffle sandwich yet, you’re in for a real treat. Sleepy Hollow offers some super tasty waffle sandwiches, including a spicy chicken waffle as well as a Nutella-and-fruit waffle. Both are amazing and big enough to be a light meal in and of themselves.
  • Golden Oak Outpost— A super quick stop, Golden Oak Outpost is a great grab-and-go spot that will save you time when you’re in a hurry.
  • Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe— Frontierland has a tendency to give guests a hankering for Mexican food. Luckily, Pecos Bills has some pretty yummy Tex-Mex that definitely does the trick.
  • Westward Ho Refreshment— Another great grab-and-go spot, Westward Ho has some super delicious corn dogs that are a perfect in-queue snack.
  • Tortuga Tavern(open seasonally)— Tortuga Tavern is another one of those locations that is only open seasonally. However, when it is open, it’s a great place to stop for lunch or dinner while meandering through Adventureland.

2. Table-Service

Sometimes it’s a relaxing sit-down meal you’re after. In those cases, Magic Kingdom’s table-service restaurants are the ideal option.

  • Tony’s Town Square Restaurant— A lovely Italian restaurant with a fun Lady and the Tramptheme, Tony’s is a Magic Kingdom classic that everyone should try at least once.
  • Plaza Restaurant— This laid-back eatery is technically a table-service restaurant, but has a menu full of quick-service prices. Sandwiches, soups, and salads are the name of the game here, and they are perfect on a hot Florida day.
  • Crystal Palace— Enjoy buffet-style eating? Want to eat with some character friends? You might want to head over to Crystal Palace where guests enjoy and all-you-can-eat food bar while visiting with Pooh and his friends.
  • Be Our Guest Restaurant(table-service for dinner)— As mentioned before, Be Our Guest is the perfect opportunity to eat inside a castle. However, at dinner the whole experience becomes even more elegant and includes a friendly waitstaff, as well as a meet-and-greet with the Beast.
  • Cinderella’s Royal Table— Yet another opportunity to eat inside a castle, Cinderella’s Royal Table is every little princess fan’s dream come true. Dine with Cinderella and a number of other princesses as you look down on the beauty of Fantasyland from the castle windows.
  • Liberty Tree Tavern— Those who are in the mood for comfort food will love the colonial-themed Liberty Tree Tavern. This restaurant takes visitors on a trip back in time and then fills their bellies with all sorts of traditional American foods.
  • Diamond Horseshoe(open seasonally)— If you can manage to get into Diamond Horseshoe when it’s open, you’ll probably love it. After all, what’s not to love about all-you-care-to-enjoy barbecue?
  • Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd Skipper Canteen— Last but not least we must mention Skipper Canteen. This is the newest of the Magic Kingdom restaurants, and includes super “punny” Jungle Cruise theming and a unique menu with something for everyone.

3. Snack Stops

Of course, no Disney day is complete without snacks. Here’s are some of the places you can go to get yours while in Magic Kingdom. (Keep in mind that there are far more carts and kiosks; these are just the most prominent options.)

  • Plaza Ice Cream Parlor— This old-fashioned ice cream parlor serves up delicious gourmet treats all day long.
  • Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies— The perfect place to get some soft-serve, Auntie Gravity's is a popular spot for guests spending time in Tomorrowland.
  • Cool Ship— Another Tomorrowland food stop is Cool Ship. Here you can find cold drinks as well as an assortment of typical theme park snacks.
  • Maurice’s Amazing Popping Machine— Just as you might imagine, Maurice’s Amazing Popping Machine serves up popcorn to all of Fantasyland. Buy a refillable bucket!
  • Storybook Treats— This is another awesome spot to get a nice cold ice cream on a hot and sunny day.
  • Cheshire Cafe— What’s not to like about coffee and pastries? Cheshire Cafe has both, and we love it!
  • Aloha Isle— Everyone should get a Dole Whip while in Disney World, and Aloha Isle in Adventureland is the place to do it.
  • Sunshine Tree Terrace— Prefer citrus flavors over pineapple? You might like to go to Sunshine Tree Terrace for a citrus swirl.
