Contemporary Resort/Bay Lake Tower
There are far too many dining options at the Contemporary. Many guests want to dine with classic Disney characters and choose to enjoy their traditional buffet meal at Chef Mickey’s. A more relaxed meal is available on the first floor at the Wave of American Flavors. Guest celebrating a special occasion or looking for the best view of the fireworks from the Magic Kingdom should snag a reservation at the California Grill for dinner (or even a Sunday brunch)! Guests who are on the run can grab a great meal or a small snack before climbing aboard the monorail at the Contempo Café.
Animal Kingdom Lodge
On the other side of the property, guests staying at either Jambo House or Kidani Village will have their choice of some wonderful restaurants and not have to battle huge crowds when choosing to dine there. Guests looking for a fancy experience should dine at Jiko for dinner. Families wanting to try new food, but still have traditional options available will want to dine at Boma. The Mara offers quick dining for guests on the run, but the elite dining option at Animal Kingdom Lodge is Sanaa which is a culinary safari for your tastebuds! After a meal at any of these locations, you’ll want to schedule some time to walk outside and watch the animals walk around the the grounds between the two building.
Different things are important to guests when visiting Walt Disney World. For some, food is important and if it is, you should consider staying at one of these resorts. Which is your favorite? What restaurant are you most excited to try out?
