Table service restaurants, quick-service restaurants, bars, lounges, bakeries, food trucks – Disney Springs has it all!
When hunger comes knocking, there’s no better place to be than this mega-complex full of dining, entertainment, and shopping opportunities.
But just how well do you know the eateries in Disney Springs? Would you recognize their best-known dishes that keep Guests coming back vacation after vacation? Let’s find out.
Here are some of our favorite signature dishes at dining locations in Disney Springs. Can you name that restaurant?
We’re starting things off with a dessert offering, which Guests can actually order as an appetizer if you’re worried about filling up on your main course and not having room for it later!
The Hummingbird Cake is a pineapple-banana cake with cream cheese icing, accompanied by vanilla ice cream and a fruit gastrique (akin to a sweet-and-sour sauce). Sounds like a heavenly way to kick off a meal!
You’ll find the famed Hummingbird Cake at Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ at The Landing at Disney Springs, brought to you by celebrity chef Art Smith. This table service restaurant specializes in local Floridian flavors that bring the yum factor.
Bangin’ Bangers & Mighty Mash
What exactly are bangers and mash, anyway? They’re simply sausages with mashed potatoes, served with onion gravy.
This hearty meal is common in the United Kingdom and Ireland, but less so across the pond in North America. So, where can you find Bangin’ Bangers & Mighty Mash in Disney Springs? If you guessed Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant, you’re right!
Raglan Road, at the Landing, boasts chefs that hail from Dublin, and you can enjoy a variety of Irish favorites here with a creative twist! Visit for dinner any day of the week, and enjoy Riverdance dancers as they bring The Rhythms of Raglan to life, accompanied by a house band.
Lobster Corn Dogs
Corn dog, meet lobster. This creative starter is one of the best things on the menu at this table service restaurant, and you won’t find it anywhere else in Walt Disney World.
Think: lobster, on a stick, dipped in flavorful cornmeal breading, with a kick of sweet chili aioli for dipping.
Guests can hop on board Paddlefish, Disney Springs’ resident steamboat, to enjoy the Lobster Corn Dogs and a variety of other seafood and steaks. In addition to the turf and surf, the views are what keep Guests coming back – the 360-degree views of Lake Buena Vista are stunning!
Six-Cheese Crunchy Macaroni & Cheese
We’ve eaten our share of amazing mac and cheese at Walt Disney World. But – six cheeses? What magic is this?
It’s true – Guests seeking a next-level mac and cheese experience can come to Disney Springs West Side for the Six-Cheese Crunchy Macaroni & Cheese, featuring spiral pasta and a creamy, top-secret blend of six cheeses, with cheese puffs on top to add a little crunch. You’ve never met a mac and cheese like this before!
You’ll find this cheesy dish at the Mac & Cheese Food Truck in Exposition Park. If six cheeses isn’t quite your cup of tea, you can try the Barbeque Beef, Lobster and Shrimp, Texas Chili, or Chicken Parmesan mac and cheese options.
This one’s a bit of a gimme. The Chocolate Extinction dessert at this table service restaurant in Disney Springs’ Marketplace is simply dino-mite (see what I did there?). Just don’t be a hero and try to eat it all yourself.
With four large chocolate cake servings, four scoops of vanilla ice cream, and a generous helping of whipped cream, chocolate sauce, and candy crumbles, this is a dessert that’s meant to be shared.
You’ve probably guessed by now that you can find this massive sweet treat at T-REX. But perhaps the best thing is that you can enjoy it surrounded by primeval jungles, a color-changing ice cave, and all the animatronic prehistoric creatures you could wish for. Oh, and don’t be startled when the meteor shower happens – it’s all part of the show!
We’re suckers for dishes with cool names. And the Snakebite Sliders at this dining establishment at the Landing in Disney Springs are as cool as they come. They’re Gourmet Beef Sliders, and they come with Tomato-Bacon Jam, House-made Pickles, and Cheese. Have you guessed yet where you can find this daring appetizer?
Snakebite Sliders are served at Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar, where you can also indulge in other apps with names that reward fans of Indiana Jones, like Doctor Astorga’s Queso Fundido, Dr. Forrestal’s Churrasco, and Ms. Dee’s Fried Sweet Potato Pies.
This is a lounge, rather than a quick service or table service location, so it’s a fabulous spot for a cocktail and snack when you don’t want a big meal. Don’t forget to look around while you’re here – the theming is some of the best in Disney Springs!
Honorable Mention: Original Chocolate Chip Cookie
What’s so special about a chocolate chip cookie, you ask? This particular gourmet chocolate chip cookie is a product of 15 years of yummy trial and error, it’s absolutely huge, somehow manages to taste like cookie dough, and it’s covered in chocolate chips.
If you’re going to eat a chocolate chip cookie at Walt Disney World, make sure it’s the Original Chocolate Chip Cookie at Gideon’s Bakehouse.
How did you do? Luckily, everyone’s a winner when it comes to delicious eats in Disney Springs!
We hope these signature dishes brought back fond memories or inspired you to try something new on your next trip to Walt Disney World!
