Absolutely! Walt Disney World has really become a well-known food lover’s paradise recently and they are not showing signs of slowing down. It is also well-known that there are still a lot of people who believe Walt Disney World is just for children. I am here to tell you that is not the case!
Walt Disney World is really for all ages! The sights, smells, thrills and tastes all throughout the four parks and 2 water parks take every guest to a whole new world of imagination. Not big into the thrills, the restaurants around the parks are so flavorful that you really feel as if you are in Africa, India, or Germany while being immersed in their culture and traditions.
While we all have different tastes, likes, and dislikes, there is still plenty of options for everyone at Disney. However, keep in mind not everyone is going to have a positive outlook on the restaurants at Disney. After all, we are all entitled to our opinions, but please do not let these affect your decisions. Our outlook every time we visit Disney is to try a new restaurant or two since we fully believe Disney is a Food Lover’s Paradise. Of course, we research these restaurants before we book our ADR, but we are looking up the menu to see if our tastes fit into the restaurant theme. However, remember, Disney is constantly changing. The menus may not always be the same when you go.
My family loves seafood, so Coral Reef is a must for us when we visit. But, with so many restaurants adding constantly and the ability to eat around the world in Epcot, makes it hard to decide sometimes! Plus, there are new restaurants headed to Walt Disney World as well!
The new Takumi-Tei restaurant is headed to the Japan pavilion in Epcot! Takumi-Tei means house of the artisan and will be operated by Mitsukoshi who currently runs additional restaurants and retail areas in Epcot. The menu will include Wagyu Beef, a multi-course tasting menu, and traditional tea service. In addition, guests will be able to purchase signature cocktails, premium sake, wine or craft beers.
Also located in Epcot will be a “Space-themed restaurant”. Located in Future World, this out-of-this-world experience will allow guests to dine with views of the galaxy as diners “travel high above the earth” during their meal! No word on a menu just yet, but the theming is enough for me to dine there!
Now we all know Star Wars Land is set to open in August. Located in Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge, a new quick service location named Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo will also be debuting! Here you can find a Food lover’s paradise with a variety of options for everyone. The Docking Bay will serve items such as sticky pork ribs, crispy chicken, chilled shrimp and noodles, plant-based “meatloaf” and more!
My family LOVES BBQ, which is why the new Roundup Rodeo BBQ table service coming to Toy Story Land will also be on our must-do list! There is not much information just yet on this new restaurant, but what we do know is that guests will be immersed in a kaleidoscope of toys, games, and playsets. The new restaurant will be located in front of Toy Story Land near the entrance sign. Don’t want to wait for this BBQ, try Mickey’s Backyard BBQ or the popular Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue! Both have excellent food along with entertainment.
Looking for something fancier, try Cinderella’s Royal Table. However, take note, reservations can be difficult to obtain, so keep checking if you do not get what you want the first time around. While you are at Cinderella’s Royal Table, try the new signature celebration package. The special package includes a character dining experience in the castle, reserved fireworks viewing in the West Plaza Garden, plus an after fireworks dessert party. In addition, upon arrival at Cinderella’s Royal Table, guests will have a special meet and greet with Cinderella and Prince Charming. Guests can reserve this package for $199 plus tax and gratuity for adults and $169 for children.
So, as you can see, by just listing off a few of the restaurants there are plenty of options for everyone at Disney! Which means, Disney is not just for children. The food is absolutely amazing and puts local restaurants to shame. Honestly, I go to some of my local restaurants and always say, “It’s good, but it’s not Disney good”. I may have a food problem! Help out your fellow addicts, what restaurants are some of your favorites?
