47 Best Things To Eat at Walt Disney World Checklist

47 Best Things To Eat at Walt Disney World Checklist

Consider this your Disney Foodie Vacation Bucket List. We love food. A lot. We cook, we bake, we rate donuts on a 5-point scale, and share our findings on Trip Advisor. For us, any vacation is as much about the food as it is about the destination. And Walt Disney World is no exception. So, what do we look forward to eating when we go to Walt Disney World? Everything! Savory and Sweet. Here are the 47 Best Things to Eat at Walt Disney World.

The Best Things To Eat at Walt Disney World Parks

Ok, so we’ll admit we have certain Disney Restaurants that we absolutely LOVE and book often. But we’ve also added things on this list we know about but have not yet tried. So in true Bucket List fashion, this may take a few years for us to check off completely. We’ve separated these out by park so that you can take a quick glance no matter where you are to see what delights await! We’ve noted if it’s Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, or Snack and if there’s a certain menu item we love or are dying to try. We haven’t included all the character breakfasts just yet, but may if we hear good things. For right now, this is a hodgepodge of certain foods worth taking the time to Eat at Walt Disney World.

Best Food At Magic Kingdom

Here were going to share the must-try foods at Magic Kingdom Restaurants at Walt Disney World. And if you’re up for even more foodie glory, check out the Best Snacks at Magic Kingdom!

Be Our Guest
Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

This is one of our top restaurant recommendations. The breakfast is perfection. A combination of a light protein rich meal and a dish of pastries plus coffee and tea makes this everything you need to get your day off to a fun, relaxing, yes-I-am-on-vacation start! The lunch has items that will make you re-think dinner plans! Large portions and hearty fare always offer us a great reason to get out of the heat and just go unwind. And if you’re up for an elegant dinner, Be Our Guest will be serving it with wine. We love the quinoa and salmon.

Crystal Palace

Our favorite characters, Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore and Piglet visit during the meals served at Crystal Palace. A buffet dining experience there is always plenty of food to choose from. We like Crystal Palace because you rarely get the whole Pooh Bear gang in one place.

Liberty Tree Tavern Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake

Liberty Tree Tavern
Thanksgiving Meal
Oooey gooey cake

As  Americans we have to say frequenting Liberty Tree Tavern was not necessarily the top thing on our list, BUT.. this place has the nicest people, the best food, and seriously the best cappuccino we have ever had at Disney. Have it alongside their famous Ooey Gooey Cake and you’re good to go. Word of warning, don’t plan on eating the Thanksgiving dinner and the cake in the same sitting. This is a lot of food and is better as a dinner stop and a dessert stop separately.

Sleepy Hollow
Nutella Waffle

Right across the midway from the Christmas Shoppe in Frontierland, catty-corner from Cinderella’s castle the small Sleepy Hollow snack window has funnel cake ( not that amazing) and the famous Nutella waffle with fruit- so yummy, and perfect if you’re waiting for a late parade or fireworks show.

Aloha Isle
Dole Whip

Storybook Treats
Peter Pan Float

Best Food At Epcot

Epcot World Showcase is one of our favorite places! If you’re looking for the Best Epcot Restaurants look no further! We’ve also done a roundup of the Best Epcot Snacks, when all those festival foods just won’t cut it. 

San Angel Inn Restaurante

Housed inside the Mexico Pavilion this restaurant has authentic Mexican, overlooks the Gran Fiesta Tour ride, and is situated under string lights in a darkened courtyard. We like the enchiladas, tortilla and dip appetizer, and the churros.

Les Halles Boulangerie & Patisserie
Nutella Donut
Macaron with Raspberry and Lime Cream

We are always sure to visit our favorite little French cafe.  Tucked away in the back of France at Epcot you can get an authentic cappuccino, croissant sandwiches for breakfast or lunch, or just stop to grab a pastry.

L’artisan Des Glaces
Macaron Ice Cream Sandwich

Future World
Garden Grill with Chip and Dale

We just recently experienced Garden Grill. For the price, this place rivals only the Whispering Canyon Cafe regarding budget and value. Served family-style you can keep the food coming. And while the strawberry shortcake is worth it we can’t get enough of the cute interactions with Chip and Dale!

Troll Horn

School Bread

Caramel turtle brownie
Caramel Popcorn

We love everything at this German Werther’s Shop and find our leftover snack credits always go to good use here. They’ve also just introduced the Boozy Caramel Flight. One of the newest additions to our New Snacks at Walt Disney World List


An authentic German meal served buffet style at Biergarten is filled with sharing a table with people you don’t know and breaking into song. Oy, Oy, Oy…

American Dream EPCOT Snack

Fife and Drum
American Dream Slushy

A slushy plus ice cream cold drink, perfect for hot days is a must-have. Striped red, white, and blue you will surely get asked where you got this star-spangled snack. Really though, don’t miss this treat! It’s one of our favorites and a staple on our Kid-Friendly Drinks at Walt Disney World list. 

Via Napoli
Quattro Fromaggi Pizza

Via Napoli is considered the quintessential Italian Restaurant at Epcot. Whether you’re getting a pizza or lasagna, you won’t find a more authentic flavor than at Via Napoli in Epcot.

Hollywood Studios has had a lot of changes in the last couple of years. Thankfully we’re keeping up with the Best Restaurants at Hollywood Studios and keeping track of the Best Snacks at Hollywood Studios.  Be sure to let us know your favorites!

Sci-Fi Dine-In Restaurant

Watch a movie in an old-fashioned car, some old vintage flicks, and eat in the dark like you’re at the drive-in. We know crazies who book this place just for the milkshake. It’s that awesome and this is always a good retreat from the heat or rain.

Hollywood & Vine
Minnie’s Holiday Dine

50’s Prime Time Café
PB and J milkshake

Get ready for some down-home awkwardness. Because personal boundaries don’t exist here so be ready to get chummy. The food is great and the waitstaff is tired of working- they’ll tell you about it. Just ask.

Though we’ll take tea anytime, taking a break and having tea at the Garden View Tea Room is the BEST way to spend an afternoon! 

1900 Park Fare

This is probably our favorite character dining experience at dinner because Lady Tremaine and the Evil Stepsisters have these characters nailed! We can never stop laughing when these ladies visit our table, it is truly impressive how well they can improv. While this is another buffet experience it is totally worth it for the fun experience. You can also visit this restaurant for breakfast to see the practically perfect in every way, Mary Poppins, and Alice alongside the Mad Hatter. Because both are lovely.
