Top Table-Service Restaurants with Outdoor Seating at Walt Disney World

Dining al fresco while visiting Walt Disney World Resort can make for a most exceptional experience in a number of ways. From majestic views to stellar vantage points, outdoor dining definitely has its perks any time of the year. And with current challenges being what they are, outdoor dining is a more desirable option than ever before. Fortunately, there are plenty of places presently operating within Disney’s various parks, resorts, and in nearby Disney Springs that boast ample outdoor seating. Even better, many of these options operate in full sit-down table service mode. While the actual list for offered outdoor table services may be longer, here’s a look at 20 exceptional options that are currently in operation.


20. Tony’s Town Square

If you’re visiting the Magic Kingdom there are plenty of places to consider that offer outdoor seating.  If you’re looking to keep with full table service accommodations, however, there is just one—Tony’s Town Square. Themed after Disney’s charming “puppy-love” hit Lady and the Tramp, this is an excellent choice for where to get hearty and authentic Italian cuisine classics. While the restaurant’s interior certainly boasts a fanciful array of décor tributes not to be overlooked, diners opting for an al fresco experience will delight in a delightful display of table and chair settings along the covered exterior front patio. Seating here delivers up an exceptional vantage point of Main Street, U.S.A. and makes for optimal viewing for when parades and processions are permitted to be in operation.

19. Tiffins/ Nomad Lounge

While two distinct entities, Tiffins and its adjoining Nomad Lounge occupy the same location within Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park and share in the same working kitchen and many menu features. While Tiffins stands as the park’s premier signature dining venue, Nomad Lounge is a more casual affair. And with the lounge’s more laid-back approach to dining comes the option for outdoor seating along the restaurant site’s wraparound porch. Seating is varied, from different sized distinctions for chairs and tables as well as comfortable lounging loveseats, couches, and other variants for relaxation. And the stellar view of the flowing river only adds to the premium experience of dining outdoors on the porch.

18. Rose & Crown Dining Room

This delightful dining suggestion over at EPCOT’s United Kingdom Pavilion is in par to taking a food flight of jolly old England and other regions comprising of the United Kingdom on a whole. Both lesser known authentic national specialties as well as beloved traditional pub grub favorites are served up heartily here within a traditional setting laden with conventional décor and theming. But diners take note that dining here is not limited to the venue’s indoor bar and dining room formats; the restaurant affords wonderful waterfront views for anyone looking to dine on the quaint outdoor patio as well. Tables and chairs with umbrella coverings are provided to al fresco diners, as well as full table services and all regular menu offerings.
