Top 15 Meals You Don’t Want to Miss at Walt Disney World

Think back to your Walt Disney World restaurant experiences. Do you have a stand-out moment when biting into a particular meal made you stop in a WOW moment of deliciousness?! Something about that meal remains in memory and equally can get your taste buds yearning for the next bite at just the thought of it! Well, we’ve scoured our memory and pulled out 15 meals we personally couldn’t get enough of and would highly recommend you don’t miss! Utensils ready? Let’s dive in!





 

15 – Gluten-Free Onion Rings at Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant

Ok, let’s kick off the list with what is not technically an entree, but our family personally gives meal ratings! This appetizer has served as a light meal for us on a few occasions – particularly for our Celiac family member. The onions rings at Disney Springs’ Raglan Road come in a gluten-free option. The best part is that even though it’s gluten-free, it still consists of that crispy battered layer surrounding the onion. Dip it in horseradish sauce or grab some ketchup, and you’ll be through devouring this plate in no time. Many Raglan Road fans will tell you the GF Onion Rings are even better than the regular ones!

14 – Fish at The BOATHOUSE

At a restaurant called “The BOATHOUSE,” you’d assume they’d have great seafood, right? Well, The BOATHOUSE at Disney Springs won’t let you down. We especially love the fish meals you’ll find at this popular eatery. While you take in water views and Amphicars driving into the water, check out one of the “Fish Features” meals, including swordfish and salmon. It’s fresh, cooked perfectly, and the atmosphere just adds that perfect touch.

13 – Chicken Tender Sandwich at Chicken Guy!

This one might be an unexpected pick for the list – but let us assure you it doesn’t disappoint. The chicken tender sandwich at Chicken Guy! in Disney Springs is worth the visit. Their signature sandwiches can be altered for your cravings with their many sauce flavors. Pick your sandwich choice and make it your own with sauces of your choice. These yummy sandwiches are messy, juicy, and super filling. Lunch, here we come!

12 – Lo Mein at Yak & Yeti Restaurant

Who’s up for some Asian goodness? Visit Yak & Yeti Restaurant in Disney’s Animal Kingdom for unique flavors that have us coming back for more. One meal that stands out here is Yak & Yeti’s, Lo Mein. You can get these tasty noodles and with chicken, shrimp, or vegetables. The Lo Mein is an easy favorite of ours that we tend to return for time and time again.

11 – Diner Food at Beaches and Cream Soda Shop

Welcome to the Beach Club Resort, where you’ll find heavenly diner-style food and remarkable sweets abound! At Beaches and Cream Soda Shop, the diner food hits the nostalgic boardwalk-style vibe right on the tongue! Grilled cheese and tomato soup, cheeseburger and fries, and a French dip sandwich are just a few of our diner favorites. Just don’t forget to order a milkshake to go along with those yummy fries.

BBQ Pizza at Blaze

10 – Pizza at Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza

You may be thinking…really, a quick-service pizza joint for top 15 meals? Yes! In fact, it has reached our top ten. Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza, a simple pizza joint at Disney Springs holds anything but simple flavors. Its super fresh ingredients cooked to order are paradise to the taste buds. It’s truly fast, fired, and downright GREAT pizza.

9 – Signature Skillets at Whispering Canyon Cafe

Who’s up for some hearty “all-you-care-to-enjoy” food? The Whispering Canyon Café at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge is a highlight of any Disney trip. Not only are the antics alive and well, but the food is paramount! Our favorite here is the Signature Skillets, which are all-you-care-to-enjoy! It doesn’t matter if you’re visiting for breakfast, lunch or dinner, you’ll find filling, home-cooked American favorites in a skillet just waiting for your appetite. We have yet to taste a bite here that doesn’t make us rave about Whispering Canyon!

8 – Steak at Yachtsman Steakhouse

“Steak” is in the name after all! The Yachtsman Steakhouse, located at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, is a stunning restaurant with signature flavors served up in classic dishes. A visit here would be incomplete without one of their top-of-the-line steaks. As the first bite melts in your mouth, you’ll know right away this meal is one your taste buds will remember for years to come.


 

7 – Seafood Buffet at Cape May Café

While we love the incredible breakfast buffet at Cape May Café in Disney’s Beach Club Resort, we must say, the dinner buffet is outstanding! Whether you’re new to the whole seafood cuisine or you’re a seafood guru – the seafood buffet at Cape May Café’s dinner is for you. From carving stations to the iconic snow crab legs, this one will have you hooked with just the smell as you approach for dinner.

6 – German Buffet at Biergarten Restaurant

It’s always Oktoberfest when visiting EPCOT’s Biergarten Restaurant! Beer is flowing. Entertainers are entertaining. And well, the German food is a-plenty! Try all the German favorites, including schnitzel, sauerkraut, cabbage, salmon, and even the beloved apple strudel…and that’s just the beginning. You won’t go hungry (or thirsty), so strap on those lederhosen and raise your glass to a meal worth every penny.

5 – BBQ Pork Ribs at Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue

Editor’s Note: Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue is temporarily closed.

Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue is one of the two dinner shows located at Walt Disney World. Simply head on over to Disney’s Fort Wilderness for a rowdy good time with even better food! Enjoy all-you-care-to-enjoy BBQ pork ribs, fried chicken, veggies, cornbread, and some delicious strawberry shortcake. The BBQ pork ribs are the winner here as one, two, three, or four ribs are never enough. YUM.

4 – Harvest Feast at The Garden Grill Restaurant

Dine with a few of our favorite Disney characters! Greeting guests at all meals of the day, The Garden Grill Restaurant in EPCOT is the place to find Chip ‘n’ Dale, Pluto, and Mickey in his cute overalls! Not only is the company a great reason to visit The Garden Grill, but the food is top-notch. Dive into their all-you-care-to-enjoy Harvest Feast. For breakfast, you can expect to taste your way through fresh, American-style breakfast (yes, including Mickey Waffles!). For lunch and dinner, you’ll think you’ve sat down to Thanksgiving dinner with the abundance of tasty food set before you. As you dine, the restaurant slowly rotates, making this meal unique in many ways!

3 – Tapas at Toledo – Tapas, Steak & Seafood

Known as a “Spanish haven,” Toledo sits on top of the Gran Destino Tower at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort. There really isn’t a meal you can go wrong with at Toledo, but we will say the Tapas (while technically not an entrée) still make for one of our favorite Disney meals we’ve ever had. Order a couple of their Tapas to get your evening going, and you’ll find yourself filling up on goodness right from the get-go. The Flight of Four Pinxtos is our favorite Tapas pick with a variety of tastes. Pair their Tapas with one of their signature beverages while taking in the 16th-floor views of Walt Disney World, and you’ll truly understand the whole “Spanish haven” description.

2 – African-Inspired Buffet at Boma – Flavors of Africa

Truly a hidden gem! Many Disney guests overlook or don’t even know about Boma – Flavors of Africa…which means they are missing out on greatness. Located quietly at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, guests have a chance to discover the wide variety this African-inspired buffet dishes out. As you look through the bountiful buffet, don’t be afraid to try a little bit of everything. Maybe you’re interested in the Curry-Coconut-Cauliflower Soup? Or how about some Durban-Style Roasted Chicken? Of course, don’t forget to get your fill of desserts with the popular Zebra Domes or the African Apple Cake. This buffet is one meal you’re sure to reminisce over!

1 – Hand-crafted Pasta at Topolino’s Terrace – Flavors of Riviera

What better place to get your pasta fill than one that understands French and Italian cuisine better than the rest! Topolino’s Terrace at Disney’s Riviera Resort is an essential stopping place during your Disney vacation. The hand-crafted pasta at Topolino’s is flavorful and shared in multiple ways for your liking. Not only is the pasta something to boast about, but Topolino’s has outstanding views of Walt Disney World from the rooftop dining location. Order a glass of wine, twirl your pasta, and breathe in a sigh of relaxation at Topolino’s Terrace!

Mike & Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with being Annual Passholders, Disney Vacation Club Members, and RunDisney participants. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire as many MagicBands as possible while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 13 years and are blessed with two children - our 8-year-old daughter and soon to be 2-year-old son. As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
