If you are in the mood for pizza and feel creative, do not miss Blaze Fast Fire’d Pizza for a delicious and fresh dining experience. Top your pizza with colorful veggies, meats, and cheeses before firing it in a giant wood-fired oven. This is an excellent shareable entrée, but it is so yummy you may not want to share.

Rainforest Café – Animal Kingdom, Table Service

Rainforest Café is such a fun place to eat I forget it’s a meal and not an attraction. Between animatronic animals vocalizing and moving, a giant aquarium, an indoor waterfall, and rainstorms every half hour; you will want to make your meal at this Disney restaurant last as long as possible.

Rainforest Café has two locations on the Disney Property at Disney Springs and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Both sites are great, but I love breaking from Disney Park with dinner at the Animal Kingdom restaurant location. The Rainforest Café at Animal Kingdom is the largest in the world.

Coral Reef Restaurant – EPCOT, Table Service

Aquarium and ocean fans need to experience a meal at Coral Reef Restaurant. Located in EPCOT’s Living Seas, diners enjoy a steak and seafood assortment while watching fish, dolphins, sharks, and stingrays swim by their table. This is a Disney must-do for Guests that have never visited this unique eatery.

A delicious dinner at Coral Reef Restaurant before enjoying evening firework entertainment around World Showcase Lagoon is the perfect way to end a day in EPCOT. This is a popular spot, so make sure you have an advanced dining reservation.

Be Our Guest – Magic Kingdom, Table Service

Be Our Guest restaurant is a tough reservation to snag but worthwhile. Make a mad dash to book this restaurant when your booking window opens before your Disney vacation. The roasted pork, French onion soup, and the master’s cupcake are my favorites at this Magic Kingdom Park restaurant.

Dining in the Beast’s castle is such a great experience. Take the time to walk around the rooms and take in the scenes from the movie. The West Wing is complete with tattered curtains, the magic mirror, and an enchanted rose.

Boma – Animal Kingdom Lodge, Buffet

Boma has quickly reached the top of my family’s favorite Walt Disney World buffets. Fire-roasted meats, regional African side dishes, and delicious dipping sauces are fantastic main course items on Boma’s buffet. The butternut squash soup, hummus selection, and delightful zebra domes for dessert are phenomenal food options.

Arrive before your reservation to have a chance to walk around the Animal Kingdom Lodge Resort to take in the gorgeous theming and visit the animals on one of the observation decks.

D-Luxe Burger – Disney Springs, Quick Service

The juicy hamburgers at D-Luxe Burger make this restaurant hard to pass up. This Disney Springs eatery has an assortment of beer on tap, made from scratch gourmet burgers, delicious shakes, and fries. This is one of my favorite burgers on the Disney Property and a great take-and-go option.

Satu’li Canteen – Animal Kingdom, Quick Service

It’s no secret that Pandora- The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park is a jaw-dropping sight. One of my favorite dining spots Satu’li Canteen is an equally fantastic place to eat while you immerse yourself in the world of Pandora.

This quick service dining spot has smoked meat and grain bowls where Guests choose grains and sauces to create their perfect meal combination. Pandora-themed beers and wines make a great pairing with a meal at Satu’li Canteen. You need to try this fresh and yummy Disney World Resort meal.

When imagining interactive table service dining at Disney World, you probably think of character dining. But there are other ways to enjoy an exciting dining experience. You can enjoy a delicious meal in the heart of the World Showcase when you dine at Teppan Edo Japanese Steakhouse. The fantastic chefs provide quite the show with dinner as they cook delicious grilled meats and vegetables right before you. Please do not skip the soup and sake with dinner; it is so delicious. This is a popular spot, so make sure you have an advanced dining reservation.

Boatwright’s Dining Hall – Port Orleans Riverside, Table Service

Boatwright’s Dining Hall at Port Orleans Riverside Disney Resort is a highly underrated and delicious dining option. This southern-inspired menu provides casual table service dining at a good value. Slow-roasted prime rib, fresh sides, and, of course, the Guest favorite, vanilla bread pudding for dessert.

Lovers of bayou-inspired dishes like crawfish etouffee, jambalaya, and Louisiana rice will likely have difficulty choosing between all the incredible options on this menu.

Biergarten Restauraunt – EPCOT, Buffet

If you are looking for a boisterous and fun musical display while you dine on German food, you must book an advance dining reservation at Biergarten Restaurant. This delightful Disney experience is high on my list of Disney World Restaurants. You’ll enjoy nudel gratin, boiled potatoes, pretzels, roasted chicken, and German sausages.

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.
