A Taste Of The World

Top 5 Walt Disney World Eateries

Everyone knows that a huge part of the Walt Disney World experience is the food. Wonderful table service restaurants, countless counter service restaurants, and even food carts with some of the most famous snack foods around (premium Mickey Head Ice Cream bars, churros) and full-on 1,100-calorie bombs (turkey legs!) provide more choices than anyone can fathom. We've decided to narrow it down to our top 5 favorites - regardless of the type of establishment - in all of The Mouse.


1. Casey's Corner, Magic Kingdom
"I like the cheese sauce, the cartoons and the stadium seating! I like the baseball uniforms too."
2. Tusker House, Animal Kingdom
"As many 7-layer cookies as you want. Better than Boma."
3. Boma, Animal Kingdom Lodge
"Yummy food, get as much dessert as you want!"
4. Beaches & Cream, Yacht & Beach Club Resort
"I like how they turn the lights down and give you the Kitchen Sink!"
5. Aloha Isle, Magic Kingdom
"Dole Whip (float)! Pineapple juice and ice cream are yummy on a hot day."


1. Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater, Disney's Hollywood Studios
"I love the movie screen and that you're sitting in a car while you eat dinner. Really good chocolate milkshake!"
2. Boma, Animal Kingdom Lodge
"Zebra domes! I picked Boma to celebrate my birthday because I love it. I tried squid in a salad though - because I thought they were croutons. Yuck."
3. Tusker House, Animal Kingdom
"Love the 7-layer cookie - very sweet! The Cast Members there are so nice."
4. Biergarten, Germany Pavilion, Epcot
"I think the buffet is really good - and it's HUGE like Boma's. At Christmas the band has a show where they gave us chocolate coins!"
5. Beaches & Cream, Yacht & Beach Club Resort
"I love the Kitchen Sink. And I like how they challenge you to finish it!"


1. Tusker House, Animal Kingdom
"You don't have to leave the Animal Kingdom so you can have your seven layer cookie and then go toss it on Expedition Everest."
2. Boma, Animal Kingdom Lodge
"Disney's take on South African food is delish! The carrot ginger soup is incredible and there are so many options I don't have to worry when trying to please a picky eater in our group."
3. Les Chefs de France, France Pavilion, Epcot
"This meal was one of the highlights of our Disney Honeymoon. Romantic and beautiful, Les Chefs de France is a great place to celebrate with that special someone."
4. San Angel Inn, Mexico Pavilion, Epcot
"This was the first real Disney table service restaurant I experienced and it did not disappoint. The atmosphere is amazing and fun and the food was great. I almost forgot that I wasn't actually in Mexico!"
5. Main Street Bakery, Magic Kingdom
"Nothing beats having a warm flaky croissant in the early morning right on Main Street! I love to sip the frozen strawberries and cream smoothie as I stroll right up to the best part of The World, the Castle!"


1. Boma, Animal Kingdom Lodge
"There's SO MUCH to love here - butternut squash soup, carrot ginger soup, bobotie, couscous, prime rib, zebra domes, passion fruit tarts and more. They even rotate their offerings so the menu is not the same very day. My favorite buffet, but this is definitely not standard buffet food. Exotic but relatively safe choices."
2. Les Chefs de France, France Pavilion, Epcot
"Wonderful in every way imaginable. The food was outstanding (starting with the lobster bisque and flatbread appetizers - delicious). The service was great. But the best part is the location and atmosphere, especially at night; that golden glow creates such an intimate and authentic experience. If you're lucky enough to get a table in the enclosed patio, go for it - being able to see the lagoon and having that fountain bubbling just outside is spectacular."
3. Jiko, Animal Kingdom Lodge
"Couldn't have made better choices for our honeymoon than Les Chefs de France and Jiko. Both were incredible and romantic. The seared scallops were OUT OF THIS WORLD. Our server was a knowledgeable guide through all the courses, making great recommendations for wine and dessert. The decor and design of this restaurant is second to none and that adds to the intimate atmosphere. Fantastic all around."
4. Tusker House, Animal Kingdom
"Boma's baby brother. In some areas, it even has it beat: open for lunch, you don't have to leave Animal Kingdom to eat at a great restaurant, and a better buffet layout. The Orzo pasta with spinach and feta is Greatness in food form - not to be missed. And, of course, there is the 7-layer cookie."
5. Biergarten, Germany Pavilion, Epcot
"Never truly realized how much I loved traditional German food before visiting Biergarten. Cheese spaetzel is a highlight as is the apple strudel with vanilla sauce. The Bavarian town theme and music makes for an awesome experience. Beware though: long tables mean communal dining with people from other parties. If you don't mind this, it isn't a problem. Sometimes, it even pluses your experience."
