One of the most exciting things about Disney Dining is that each table service restaurant seems to have something unique to entice Guests. Maybe it’s a character dining experience where you get to meet your favorite Disney princess while you dine. Maybe you are celebrating with Mickey Mouse at Chef Mickey’s or dining under the sea at Coral Reef Restaurant. There are so many fun-themed table service dining experiences to enjoy at Walt Disney World Resort. Disney foodies like I strongly believe that Disney Dining is a pivotal part of the Disney experience.

We’ve talked about great dining experiences and world showcase. From Teppan Edo in Japan to juicy steaks at Le Cellier Steakhouse in Canada to the flavors of Morocco at Spice Road Table. There are so many flavors to choose from. This Disney Park does the dining big, as evidenced by the sheer number of quick service and table service dining restaurants available, which are routinely a highlight for Disney World Guests.

While there are certainly some incredible dining experiences in world showcase. There are also some delicious dining options in EPCOT’s future world. Today we are talking about one of my favorite EPCOT restaurants that serves up delicious food alongside fun Disney characters. The next time you visit Walt Disney World Resort for your Disney Park vacation, you should consider a dining reservation at Garden Grill restaurant.

This fun-themed restaurant serves lunch and dinner each day. Located in The Land, you’ll find this restaurant near rides like Livving With the Land and Soarin Around the World. In fact, you will smell the delicious food from Garden Grill, a restaurant, and sunshine seasons, the nearby quick service dining spot, as soon as you walk into this EPCOT pavilion.

The theme for this meal is harvest time. Speaking of harvest, the whole theme of The Land pavilion is agricultural stewardship and the importance of making eco-friendly choices to live with the land as we live off the land. I always suggest Guests dining at garden grill restaurant take a ride on living with the land boat ride before their dining reservation. This experience will bring your meal full circle!

Speaking of a full circle – that’s exactly what you will be making during your meal. This fun Disney restaurant happens to rotate throughout your meal. Don’t worry, it moves very slowly and shows. The scenes display visuals of the Living with the Land ride below. You’ll enjoy watching scenes with the rainforest, farmhouse homestead, thunderstorm, desert landscape, and the American Prairie.

I’m of the firm belief that Living With The Land is a highly underrated Disney attraction. This slow-moving boat ride takes you through Disney greenhouses and ecosystem scenes, where you learn and appreciate the unique ecosystems of the earth and learn what you can do to help support and save them for future generations. I never take a trip to EPCOT without a ride on this classic attraction.

This table service restaurant stays pretty busy. So be sure to book an advance dining reservation for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation as soon as possible. Lunch is served here today from 11:30 a.m. to 3:40 p.m., and dinner is served each evening from 3:45 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. You will find fun American-style food at this restaurant and even meet your Disney friends while you chow down. See Chip, Dale, and some of their character friends as you dine and rotate in this restaurant. Have your camera and autograph box ready to make memories with these Disney friends.

The great thing about the menu and garden grill restaurant is there is no guesswork on pricing. This bottomless menu means that you can enjoy as much food as you want it for $55 per adult and $36 per child. If you have teenager or heavy eaters in your family, bottomless dining is a great way to get the biggest bang for your buck on your Disney vacation.

The menu is self is harvest, inspired, and includes dishes like a garden salad, seasonal vegetables, barbecue, and roasted chicken, with a delicious sweet and tangy barbecue sauce and fluffy mashed potatoes. You also enjoy grilled beef with chimichurri sauce, macaroni and cheese, and the unique southern style spoon bread. For dessert, you can indulge in a delicious berry shortcake dolloped with smooth whipped cream.

As always, at bottomless or buffet-style Disney meals, soft drinks are included. Alcohol is an extra charge. Choose from one option like an Opici Family Red Sangria, Franciscan Chardonnay or a fresh, fruity, and floral Benvolio Pinot Grigio, the name just a few. There’s also the bottle and draft beer selection that includes Stella Artois, Samuel Adams, Corona, Yuengling, and other well-known brands.

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.
