6. Chef Mickey’s
Speaking of elusive Disney dining experiences, you and your family can also hang out for breakfast at Chef Mickey’s at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. What makes this restaurant so great, aside from being in one of the best hotels on Disney property, is having the chance to sit directly under a monorail. As you know, the monorails come right through Disney’s Contemporary resort, and it’s beyond cool to have the chance to dine as they are traveling above you. My 8-year-old nephew not only loves monorails, but is obsessed with Mickey Mouse -- so being in a place where he gets to dine with Mickey and monorails is the coolest dining experience ever.
7. Cinderella’s Royal Table
Here, you get to meet and take pictures with Cinderella herself -- in addition to a bunch of her royal friends! The decor, like Be Our Guest Restaurant, is exquisitely themed and the presentation of the food is unlike any you’ll encounter! It’s a beautiful restaurant with even better food that always manages to make every guest feel like royalty.
8. The Crystal Palace
This cute buffet offers up excitement, hundred acre woods style! Go up for seconds and thirds and fourths as some of your beloved Winnie the Pooh characters visit you. You’ll meet Winnie the Pooh, Eeyore, Tigger and Piglet as they gather for Friendship Day! It’s quite the experience for families!
9. The Hollywood Brown Derby
Located in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, The Hollywood Brown Derby is an experience all guests should have. It’s old Hollywood vibe is matched by its unique signature dishes. Plus, they offer an option to dine with an Imagineer! It’s extra, of course, but worth every penny to hear about how the magic of Disney comes to life. Without the added experience, though, the Hollywood Brown Derby sums up what’s so unique and timeless about Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
10. Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar
As one of the weird ones on this list, Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar is the perfect hangout for those who are looking to dine in a completely unique and trendy setting. You’re sitting in a 1940s airplane hanger that none other than Jock Lindsey, Indiana Jones’ sidekick, turned into a bar. While it doesn’t have as extensive of a menu as a full-blown restaurant, this lounge packs in the powerful flavors in both food and cocktails and is a great way to cap your evening at Disney Springs.
