4 Excellent Disney World Restaurants in Florida


When it comes to planning a day out in Disneyland, the park's restaurants may not be the first places that come to mind. They are, however, well worth a visit and they have plenty to offer when it comes to themed dining experiences. This article takes a look at a few of the best to give you an idea of all that's on offer.

The Be Our Guest Restaurant

We start with one of Walt Disney World's newest additions, the excellent Be Our Guest Restaurant. The restaurant seats guests in the very heart of the Beast's Castle, located in the recently opened New Fantasyland expansion, and offers up one of the park's most entertaining dining experiences. There's plenty to choose from on the menu but dining here is about more than the delicious food; visitors are also treated to a visual feast with the restaurant ranking highly for its special effects and interactive entertainment.

The Garden Grill

The Garden Grill is located in the popular Epcot Future World and is an excellent choice for lunch or dinner. It might not have the Disney character laden environment of some of the park's other restaurants, but it more than makes up for it in futuristic fun. The Garden Grill slowly rotates during your meal, offering up ever changing views of the surrounding park, and the menu has a wide range of meals to choose from, some of which are sourced from the greenhouses in Epcot.

The Whispering Canyon Cafe

If you're a fan of the "Old West" and dining outdoors, then you should head for the Whispering Canyon Cafe. This impressive restaurant is open to the air and offers up views into the expansive lobby of the Wilderness Lodge. The cafe has an "Old West" atmosphere, with great design touches, and the service here is a real hoot. It's also a great choice if you want to tuck into some great American favourites, with a menu which offers plenty of choice.

The Sci-Fi Dine-In Theatre

When it comes to classic dining experiences in Walt Disney World, the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theatre has to be one of the best. This excellent restaurant is themed around a traditional 'drive in movie' experience, with guests seated at tables designed to look like classic 1950s cars. As you would expect, dinner here comes complete with a screenings of sci-fi B-movies and its menu is packed full of similarly themed food.
