Be it breakfast before entering the park or a meal to cap a long day riding your favorite attractions, be sure to check out one of these top ten restaurants on your next trip!
1. Whispering Canyon
Guests can find this restaurant at Wilderness Lodge directly off of the grand lobby. You will want to make sure that you bring your appetite to a meal here since guests can choose all-you-care-to-enjoy platters. At breakfast, the platter features scrambled eggs, potatoes, bacon, sausage, as well as classic Mickey waffles, buttermilk-cheddar biscuits and gravy. If you lack a huge appetite, guests can also order menu items a la carte off of the menu. Lunch and dinner are served similarly with guests choosing a la carte entrees or a skillet with homestyle favorites: cornbread, slow-smoked ribs, pulled pork, citrus herb chicken, sausage, as well as mashed potatoes, corn, and baked beans. After the meal, guests will enjoy a relaxing walk around the resort or a boat ride over to the Magic Kingdom!
2. 1900 Park Fare
Located at the Grand Floridian, guests opting to dine here will be able to enjoy a filling buffet-style meal, as well as meet some classic Disney characters in the process. At breakfast, guests will enjoy sticky buns, croissants, doughnuts, as well as assorted fresh fruit like watermelon, pineapple, grapes, and honeydew. As an entrée, guests can have a blintz, eggs Benedict, customizable omelets, pancakes, french toast, potatoes, grits, bacon, sausage, and more. Dinner invites guests to enjoy a menu featuring a variety of salads, as well as curried chicken, salmon, catfish, Mongolian beef, shrimp scampi, and an assortment of soups. There are also a bevy of savory side dishes, too – jasmine rice, mashed potatoes, and seasonal vegetables.
3. Boatwright’s Dining Hall
Guests will love this Southern-style restaurant located at Port Orleans Riverside. Guests are only able to dine here for dinner, but will find myriad options on the menu. Any meal at Boatwright’s begins with a basket of cornbread while guests choose between traditional selections such as jambalaya, etouffee, as well as ribs, chicken, shrimp and grits, and prime rib! The dessert menu is decadent and challenging – it is difficult to choose between red velvet cheesecake and Mississippi mud pie! If you are in the mood for some extra fun after your meal, head next door to the River Roost for a delicious cocktail and Yeehaw Bob and his lively entertainment!
4. Olivia’s Café
This homestyle café can be found at the original DVC resort on property, Old Key West. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, guests can find traditional options, but served with an island flair! At breakfast, guests can have an omelet served with pico de gallo, eggs Benedict with savory crab cakes, or banana bread french toast. Lunch features a burger served on a savory pineapple-coconut roll, a classic shrimp po’ boy, as well as a fish sandwich topped with bacon and a chipotle mayonnaise. Dinner features similar choices, but also expands the menu to include scallops, pork chops, and slow-cooked prime rib. After your meal, hop aboard one of the boats and sail over to Disney Springs for some lively entertainment or shopping!
