Moving away from the Magic Kingdom resorts, guests can still find a wide selection of deluxe resorts and restaurants in the Crescent Lake area sandwiched between Hollywood Studios and Epcot. These restaurants are a great place to stop after a fun-filled day in the parks or just as a quick break as you take the Friendship Boats, the soon-to-be-open Skyliner, or just a simple stroll between the parks. You’ll definitely want to leave some room in your plans on your next trip for one of these restaurants!
