There are lots of great dining options at Walt Disney World, whether you are after a 3 course (or more in some cases) fine dining meal, a quick table service dinner, fast food, or a sweet treat!
Contrary to what you may think, it’s not all chips and burgers at Walt Disney World. You can get a massive variety of healthy and not-so-healthy options across the parks and resorts, and i’m going to share a few of my favourite ‘eats’ with you today!
One of my favourite breakfasts to enjoy whilst at Disney World are Mickey Waffles! Deliciously sweet and thick American style waffles… shaped like Mickey Mouse!! If that doesn’t scream ‘your at Disney World’ to you then nothing will!
Another recent favourite i’ve enjoyed is the open faced poached egg, applewood bacon and brie sandwich from Be Our Guest Restaurant at the Magic Kingdom – it’s a delicious combination, and makes a change from some of the more sugary breakfast options typical to America (see above Mickey Waffles as a prime example).
There are tonnes of great places to grab a quick lunch at Walt Disney World. Almost everywhere sells burgers and fries, but for a slightly different type of ‘burger’ style meal, try a BBQ pulled pork sandwich from Cosmic Rays at the Magic Kingdom. Plenty of delicious pulled pork and flavoursome BBQ sauce make this a nice change from a beef burger!
If you want to move WAY away from fast food, try Sunshine Seasons in EPCOT, which has loads of great healthier options for lunch! Our personal favourite is the Mongolian beef and rice, but we also enjoy the Turkey sandwich!
There are so many great sit down restaurants at Walt Disney World that its hard to choose, but I can’t go think about Walt Disney World dinners without mentioning one of my personal favourites – Mama Melrose in Hollywood Studios! I’ve been lucky enough to have the steak TWICE – it comes with a four cheese pasta and an amazing red wine reduction – It was the best steak i’ve ever had. THE BEST I’VE EVER HAD!!!! And when I went back the second time it was just as good as I remembered, which is a testament to a good quality restaurant I think!
No trip to Walt Disney World would be complete for me without eating a few sugary snacks!! I can’t go without a Mickey rice crispy treat – made to order at Goofy’s Candy Co. in Downtown Disney. I like mine covered in M&M’s but there are tonnes of toppings to choose from.
I have also recently discovered the Ice Cream Macaroon Sandwich from the L’Artisans Des Glaces – Chocolate Macaroons with ice cream as the filling! Its a chewy, melty dream!!
And of course, we can’t forget the old WDW cupcake. Or should I say GIANT cupcake! Seriously, these things are huge! About 3 times the size of a normal cupcake! There are so many varieties of cupcake being sold all across the parks and resorts, and they change frequently. My favourite was the Darth Vader cupcake – chocolatey peanut buttery goodness!
So there you have some of my favourite Walt Disney World eats! There is so much variety at Disney that what ever food you fancy, you should be able to find and enjoy!
