Where can I eat at Walt Disney World?

There are more than 100 places to eat at Disney World to suit any picky eater and their parents’ wallets. It’s just one more of the wonderful things about the Disney theme parks. Some restaurants are themed, like the 50s Prime Time Café, some serve foods of certain cultures, like the Lotus Blossom and San Angel Inn. And if all your little ones will eat are hot dogs and SpaghettiOs, well, then, you can get those, too. No kidding!

In the Magic Kingdom there are restaurants at which you and your family can sit down to have a meal, some with outdoor seating. And if you need to distract your children in order to get a mouthful of food into their mouth (or yours), many of these restaurants such as the “Once Upon a Time” breakfast at Cinderella’s Castle and the Winnie the Pooh – themed Crystal Palace buffet breakfast, lunch, and dinner, offer character meals where Disney characters are there to entertain and interact with the kids during mealtime.

While many of the restaurants are your basic sandwich and salad fare, if you’re in the mood for a more formal, sit-down, or gourmet dining experience, or if you’re interested in some world class cuisine then look no further. Citricos – Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, situated on the Seven Seas Lagoon, serves up food with the flair of the South of France.

The trendy Flying Fish Café offers healthy fare while Jiko’s – located in Animal Kingdom – allows you the opportunity to savor African, Middle and Far Eastern, and Indian food. And if you plan your Disney vacation early enough, be sure to place your Victoria & Albert’s reservation six months in advance. That’s right – six months.

Ever since AAA bestowed their coveted 5-Diamond award on this first class eatery 10 years ago (the only Florida restaurant to receive such a rating), getting a table has become a tad difficult. Great to know: Most Disney restaurants offer children’s menus, which are available to kids ages 3-9. Children who are under 3 are may eat from their parents plate at no extra charge. How’s that for accommodating? “Lifestyle Diets” such as low-carb, low-fat, low-salt, vegan, and vegetarian, are easily available by calling 407-WDW-DINE. Kosher meals are available at most full service restaurants by calling 407-WDW-DINE. As all kosher meals are prepared in and flown in from Miami and therefore require 24 hour’s advance notice.

If you don’t have time to call ahead or if you’re not looking for the full-on restaurant experience, quick and less expensive kosher meals are available at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe in Magic Kingdom, World Premiere Food Court at Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort, Intermission Food Court at Disney’s All-Star Music Resort, End Zone Food Court at Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort, Everything Pop Shopping and Dining at Disney’s Pop Century Resort, ABC Commissary at Disney-MGM Studios, Riverside Mill Food Court at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort, and Pizzafari at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Parties of more than 12 must make reservations. Holiday dining is also available.
