Just because the parks are closed and the sun has set doesn’t mean that your day has to be over, or that you lost your opportunity to dine. There are lots of great late-night options that will offer you an amazing meal to round out your day. Here are the top 10 late-night dining spots.
Editor’s Note: During the phased reopening of Walt Disney World, not all restaurants have reopened. Be sure to check the My Disney Experience app for up to date operating hours.
10 – Resort Room Service
You can get room service at all hours of the day from your Walt Disney World resort. It is typically from the quick service or table service restaurants at the resort you are staying at. During the later hours, the menus might be limited, but you can still order food and have it delivered to your room. This is a great way to end the day at the parks so you can relax and still get a great meal.
9 – Gasparilla Grill or Picabu’s
These are both quick-service locations, but the great part about them is that they are both open 24×7! Gasparilla Grill is at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, while Picabu’s is at the Dolphin Hotel. If you aren’t staying at the resort, late-night transportation may be difficult to get back to your own resort, but if you have a car these can both be great options to get a tasty bite to eat at any hour of the day.
8 – Boardwalk Pizza Window
The Boardwalk Pizza Window is usually open until midnight each night. If you are hanging out in the area or coming from Disney’s Hollywood Studios or Epcot, this is a great place to grab a piece of pizza and fill your tummy after a long day. There aren’t a ton of options or variety, but it’s delicious and will definitely take your hunger away.
7 – Rose & Crown Pub
This is a favorite of ours for late nights at Epcot. The restaurant has beautiful outside seating, which is great for watching the Illuminations fireworks at night. It is also an amazing atmosphere with delicious food and wide variety of great beers and drinks. You can never go wrong with this location at any time of day, but nights are definitely the best time to visit. Get your reservation in advance if at all possible.
6 – Ragland Road
Ragland Road is one of the liveliest restaurants on property. With the Irish dancing and performers, there is always a ton of action in the restaurant. The food is delicious Irish pub-style food, but also so much more than that. There are tons of great drinks and the nightlife is amazing. There is definitely a reason why this is one of the most popular Disney Springs hangouts at any time of day.
5 – Big River Grill and Brewing Works
This location is over at Disney’s Boardwalk. This is the only working brewery onsite at Walt Disney World. The location is family-friendly, so you can definitely still dine here with the kiddos. The food is great, and the restaurant as late hours. With the location, it is in close proximity to theme parks and various resorts.
4 – ‘Ohana
Editor’s Note: During the phased reopening of Walt Disney World, Ohana is not operating.
This one is a favorite of ours. You can dine during the Wishes fireworks at Magic Kingdom and get to see the show right from your table. The restaurant doesn’t stop seating guests until close to 11. There is evening entertainment at the restaurant and a full, delicious bar. So head on over to Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort if you want an AMAZING meal, plus entertainment and a great way to wind down in the evening.
3 – Toledo, Steak & Seafood
Located at the very top of the Gran Destino Tower at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, Toledo – Tapas, Steak & Seafood, is deluxe all the way, but at a moderate resort! It’s genuinely a high-end restaurant with masterpiece entrées and drinks (both in appearance and taste). Toledo sits at the top of the tower and has expansive views of the Walt Disney World property, including views of each of the four theme parks, two water parks, and Disney Springs. Visit later in the evening to see fireworks in the distance while you dine.
2 – California Grill
Editor’s Note: During the phased reopening of Walt Disney World, Happily Ever After is temporarily suspended.
This is definitely a favorite location for many guests. There is a dress code, so you have to be prepared to dress a little bit nicer than you might for a normal day at the theme parks. The restaurant is at the top of Disney’s Contemporary Resort and overlooks the Magic Kingdom. It offers views of Happily Ever After fireworks and a delicious menu that includes steaks, sushi and more. Note that while you’ll still be able to see the fireworks, you won’t really be able to “get” the show without viewing the castle projections. However, the food is amazing and you’ll still be able to enjoy the fireworks. If you haven’t eaten here, you definitely want to snag a reservation for this one.
1 – Splitsville
This is definitely a late-night favorite for us. The menu is jam-packed with great items including salads, sushi, steaks, wraps, nachos and so much more. There is definitely something for everyone, the hours are late, you can go for a round of bowling before or after if you want and it’s family-friendly. It makes the location very well rounded and a great place to unwind after a long day in the parks.
