Disney Foodie Vacation Bucket List

Disney Foodie Vacation Bucket List

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?  

A Disney Foodie Vacation

Mind you we have certain Disney restaurants 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.

Best Food 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
Thanksgiving Meal
Oooey gooey cake
As an American I have to say frequenting Liberty Tree Tavern was not necessarily the top thing on my list, BUT.. this place has the nicest people, the best food, and seriously the best cappuccino I 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.

Diamond Horseshoe
S’ mores Brownie

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! We’ve been during The International Festival of the Arts , Flower and Garden Festival and Food and Wine . While we make a priority to get to as many food carts as we can during all these festivals there are a few things we always make sure to have when we are at Epcot.

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
Macron 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!

School Bread
Troll Horn

Caramel turtle brownie
Caramel Popcorn

We love everything at this German Werther’s Shop, and find our left over snack credits always go to good use here.

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…

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.

Via Napoli
Quattro Fromaggi Pizza

Kabuki Cafe
Kakigori w/ creamy sweet milk

Best Food At Hollywood Studios

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 are tired of working- they’ll tell you about it. Just ask.

Wild Africa Trek
Tin Picnic Lunch
You have to actually book the Wild Africa Trek for this lunch. But it’s on the African Savanna, arrives in adorable tins, and you get our absolutely favorite drink, POG, chilled to perfection. There is a vegetarian option, just ask.

Kidani Village
Frozen POG

Pandora: Pongu Pongu
Night Blossom ( yummy, with or without boba balls)
Pineapple Lampu

Pandora: Satuli Canteen
Build Your own Bowls. Especially the bowls with chimichurri sauce. Read our post.

Garden View Tea Room
High tea

Though we’ll take tea anytime. Read our Review.

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.
