Between the four theme parks, guests have a bevy of options available to them when it comes to picking a restaurant for an early morning breakfast before tackling the parks, a midday feast to fuel up for an afternoon full of FastPass+ selections, or a dinner to celebrate a full day in the park. Guests can choose from a variety of themes and dining selections, but here is our list of our top ten Disney park restaurants!
1. The Plaza Restaurant (Magic Kingdom)
One of best hidden gems in all of the parks, the Plaza Restaurant offers a variety of burgers and sandwiches to guests. Guests can also enjoy homestyle meatloaf, honey barbecue brisket macaroni and cheese, or a refreshing chicken-strawberry salad, tuna salad sandwich, or a traditional grilled Reuben. You’ll definitely want to save room for dessert as you can get a delicious sundae featuring ice cream from the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor next door. Space is very limited, so be sure to make advanced dining reservations if you want to enjoy a meal here!
2. Garden Grill (Epcot)
A unique restaurant located in the Land Pavilion, the Garden Grill serves guests for every meal of the day. In addition to the all-you-care-to-enjoy platters served to guests, the restaurant is circular and rotates so guests can look inside of the Living with the Land attraction. On top of all of this, guests will also be greeted by Mickey, Pluto, and Chip ‘n Dale during their meals. Some of the dishes even feature vegetables cultivated in the Land Pavilion. With all of the World Showcase dining options, Garden Grill is frequently overlooked, so be sure to check it out!
3. Yak and Yeti (Animal Kingdom)
This unique eatery invites guests to sample from a pan-Asian menu. Guests can find a variety of lo mein bowls with their choice of protein or try something more exotic such as chicken tikka masala, duck, or wok-inspired dishes such as sweet and sour chicken or honey chicken. You could also opt to have Korean BBQ ribs, a Kobe beef burger, or teriyaki chicken! Dessert is a hodgepodge of options, so be sure to save some room!
4. Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano (Hollywood Studios)
Another hidden gem nestled away in the back of Hollywood Studios, Mama Melrose’s offers guests traditional Italian classics. Guests will enjoy the relaxed atmosphere while also enjoying charred strip steak, wood-grilled chicken and pasta, spaghetti and meatballs, as well as chicken parmigiana. Dessert has an expansive menu, so save some room for cheesecake, gelato, cannoli, or a chocolate and cherry tort.
