No Disney vacation is complete until I have enjoyed Disney dining. While Walt Disney World has a reputation for being a haven for fun seekers, thrill seekers, and magic seekers that love the rides and shows in the Parks, it is also a culinary experience sure to tempt any food lover. From fine dining and signature dining to bottomless family-style table service restaurants, there is a lot of food to enjoy as part of your Disney experience. I could talk for days about the delicious food on the Walt Disney World property. Let’s break down my favorite eats money can buy at Walt Disney World.

Hot Dogs and Fries at Casey’s Corner

The magic of walking down Main Street, U.S.A. is unmatched. The view of Cinderella Castle and sound of the Magic Kingdom feels surreal. One of my favorite quick service dining spots is at the end of the street. What is more iconic than a hot dog during a theme Park day? The fresh hotdogs at Casey’s Corner are so yummy! The beautiful tables in the courtyard outside the entrance, hearty condiment bar, and crispy, hot fries make it a Magic Kingdom favorite for many families. The restaurant is a great value, centrally located, and offers quick service for Guests of all ages. Don’t forget to visit this Main Street, U.S.A. staple spot for a fun lunch between attractions.

Fish & Chips at Yorkshire County Fish Shop

Who doesn’t love a hearty grab-and-go meal in a Disney Park? Hot Fish & Chips splashed with malt vinegar is a delicious EPCOT meal I always enjoy on a visit to World Showcase. Even better, you can quickly purchase this entree for a low price from Yorkshire County Fish Shop and buy a beer to accompany it from the next-door U.K. Beer Cart.

Split your travel party to optimize the ordering, with a few of you ordering the beer while the other part of the group orders the Fish & Chips. At less than $14 per portion, this dish is an incredible value and one of the most shareable eats at Walt Disney World.

Dinner Buffet, Boma

My family loves a buffet or bottomless dining option. It takes the guesswork out of menu decoding and simplifies the Disney dining process. Booking a meal at a Disney Buffet is a Disney World tip I give Disney World Resort newbies. Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is home to one of my favorite buffets. Boma.

You’ll chow down on meats like prime rib and turkey paired with sides like mashed potatoes, green beans, pap, a hummus bar, a salad bar, and more. Don’t forget the sweet ending that is adorable and light zebra domes. Boma is an underrated Disney dining experience that is one of my favorite restauraunts.

Pro Tip: Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is not as centrally located as other Disney hotels so, book your Boma dinner following an Animal Kingdom Park day to make the most of your time.

French Onion Soup, Be Our Guest Restaurant

Flavorful French onion soup is so delicious. You can find this steaming cheesy soup in several places around the Disney Property, but Be Our Guest Restauraunt is the best place to enjoy this dish. Flavorful comfort food at its finest, this soup combines caramelized onions simmered in a delicious beef stock topped with a thick crouton and melted gruyere cheese atop a steaming bowl. I always make this large “appetizer” my meal when dining at Be Our Guest. Every ounce is steaming and delicious.

The steaming, sugary beignets at Port Orleans French Quarter Resort are as delectable as you will find outside New Orleans. These hot fried doughnut-reminiscent treats are dusted with powdered sugar and served warm in all their glory at Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory and Scat Cat’s Club at this Disney Moderate Resort.

Beignets are the perfect breakfast or snack and worth a trip to this Resort to enjoy. Enjoy the vibrant and fun Mardi Gras-themed dining room as you indulge in this sweet treat, then walk around the Resort for beautiful views of the water and the Mardi Gras-themed pool.

Tonga Toast & Press Pot, Kona Café

Nothing starts a Disney Park day right like an order of Tonga Toast! Kona Cafe at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is conveniently located on the monorail line, making it a good breakfast stop for those looking to spend the day at Magic Kingdom Park.

A table service dining restaurant in the Great Ceremonial House, this spot is famous for its fruity and fluffy Tonga Toast. The French press Kona Coffee will jolt you off to a great day, and the crispy bacon that comes with an order of Tonga Toast is an excellent value at under $18 per plate.

If you are a light breakfast eater like me, you should consider splitting this entree with a fellow traveler, and adding a side order of bacon. This warm, sugary, banana and strawberry-filled treat is large and hearty, making it the perfect sharing size. The Kona French press is rich and robust; it is the ideal serving for three family members.

Roast Chicken Dinner, Chefs de France

I know what you are thinking. Is such a simple meal really that great? I have to say the Chefs de France Roast Chicken is one of my favorite Disney World Resort meals. The roast chicken and vegetables at Chefs de France are so flavorful and delicious without beinhg overly complicated.

The portion is hearty, making it an excellent entrée for sharing. This dish is succulent and authentically French and light enough to enjoy on a warm day in EPCOT. The Disney dining flavor of this dish truly is out of this world!

Buffet Dinner at 1900 Park Fare

Who doesn’t love heading to a Disney Hotel for a magical dinner after a Park day? This charming Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort restaurant boasts a fresh and delicious buffet. One of the menu offerings is so popular you’ll find copycat recipes for it in cookbooks and online. The fresh Florida Strawberry Soup is my favorite dish at 1900 Park Fare. This chilled bisque hits the spot after a day in the Florida sun.

Did you know you do not have to snag a reservation at Cinderella’s Royal Table to meet this famous Disney Princess? It’s true! Meet Cinderella, Prince Charming, Lady Tremaine Drizella, and Anastasia at 1900 Park Fare’s dinner character meal. In between posing for photos and chatting with the characters, you can eat roast pork loin, shrimp, and dozens of other delicious sides, salads, and desserts.

Bottomless Dinner at Ohana

No surprises here – this Polynesian feast is incredibly popular and notoriously difficult to reserve. Dinner at Ohana is consistently the high point of my Disney vacation. Right on the monorail line, Ohana is easily accessible after a long day in the Magic Kingdom. The copious number of grilled meats and Polynesian side dishes are fantastic.

Dinner is bottomless, so you can enjoy all the grilled shrimp, beef, and chicken you want. The Hawaiian sweet noodles, pork dumplings, and grilled chicken wings are two of my favorite dishes at Ohana. The dinner culminates with delicious hot bread pudding. Ohana is my favorite meal money can buy at Walt Disney World.

About Katie Chapman

Hey There! I am a Georgia native with a passion for writing, traveling, cooking, decorating, pugs and of course all things Disney. Growing up in South Georgia just a few hours from Walt Disney World made for a magical childhood. Some of my best memories were made on Main Street U.S.A. with my sister watching SpectroMagic nighttime parade or beside my grandparents, parents and extended family at Chef Mickey’s celebrating on a family vacation. Epcot was my favorite park from a young age and I credit it with my interest in and love for international travel. As a kid I loved meeting characters and watching films around World Showcase and could spend hours exploring each of the countries in Epcot. These days, my husband and I get away to explore a new country whenever we can and even incorporate trips to The Disney Store and Disney Parks around the world in our travels. One of our travel goals is to visit every Disney Park in the world. I love writing about Disney restaurants, park tips, Disney outfit inspiration and Disney history. Pocahontas is my favorite Disney Princess (90s kid here!) but Mr. Toad is my spirit animal. When I’m not at Disney I’m reading about park history, watching Disney documentaries and shopping vintage Disney merch for park outfits. I never pass up a reservation to Ohana, an empty seat on Living with the Land or a Violet Sake.
