From quick service and snacks to buffets, signature dining, and character dining, you have much to choose from on your Disney vacation. I love prepping for a Disney vacation (or gathering inspiration before booking) by scrolling the dining options on the Walt Disney World Resort website or the My Disney Experience app.

Guests can use filters to sort restaurants by dining experiences, cuisine, location, and price. If you are looking for some moderately priced meal spots at Walt Disney World Resort that are time-tested and Disney fanatic-certified – this article is for you.

Yak & Yeti Restaurant

Yak & Yeti Local Foods Fried Rice


Yak & Yeti restaurant offers Animal Kingdom Guests the opportunity to enjoy Asian and Nepalese cuisine in a beautiful restaurant near Expedition Everest. The ambiance of this themed spot fits perfectly with the Asia section of Animal Kingdom Park. Plates of Lo Mein, Korean Barbeque, Dim Sum, and Kobe Beef burgers are just a few of Guest favorites at Yak & Yeti.

Dinner entrees start at around $20 per person. This spot makes the list because of the shareable portion sizes. This is one of the best restaurants to divide portions between family members to taste more of the menu and save cash.

The menu boasts hearty southern comfort food like fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, biscuits, collard greens, and high-stacked homemade cakes that wow Guests. Yet another table service spot that gets its moderately priced classification thanks to the shareability of the dishes. My husband and I always split the fried chicken main course and leave this restaurant stuffed.

Sleepy Hollow

Sleepy Hollow in Liberty Square is a quick service eatery with outdoor seating nearby. It makes this list because it has unique offerings every Magic Kingdom Guest should experience. The delicious dessert waffles are such a fun and tasty vacation dining experience. Strawberry and Cream waffles and fruit and Nutella waffles are hard to beat. At around $8 per waffle, Sleepy Hollow makes a tremendous shareable snack or light lunch option.

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.
