    Best places to have lunch at the Magic Kingdom and Epcot. We will be there with our 15 yo and her friend. Something fun and memorable. TIA

    Howdy Lisa! I love it when a fellow Texan stops by planDisney with a question for us!

    An enchanting vacation to The Most Magical Place on Earth sounds Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! I am happy to discuss all the delectable delights with you as you’re planning your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! 

    I love that Magic Kingdom Park brings so many of our favorite fairytales to life. If your 15-year-old is a fan of the classic tale Beauty and the Beast, I would encourage you to experience lunch at Be Our Guest Restaurant. It truly feels as if you are in the classic movie as you dine inside Beast’s enchanted castle. Imagineers replicated The Grand Ballroom scene where Belle and Beast dance, along with The West Wing and The Castle Gallery rooms. Currently, this restaurant offers a prix fixe, 3-course menu and it is an incredibly magical experience. Another magical experience would be lunch at Cinderella’s Royal Table where you can eat inside the Cinderella Castle! Just being able to enter the stunning castle itself is a dream come true! Advanced Dining reservations are strongly suggested at both locations as these restaurants are highly sought-after.

    EPCOT is my favorite park and it looks like you’re coming during my favorite festival of all: Taste of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival! The wonderful thing about EPCOT is that the World Showcase is a foodie’s dream come true and the festival has some delicious Outdoor Kitchens that allow for the most delightful experience! My family likes to check out the festival’s Foodie Guide and plan all the treats we will try! If you’d rather have a more traditional sit-down meal, I would like to make two suggestions. The first being Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria because it is my family’s absolute favorite meal and one can never go wrong with having a delicious slice (or three) of pizza! The other suggestion is Garden Grill Restaurant where you can meet some of the cutest pals around! This modified dining experience has Guests seated in the outer ring of the restaurant, giving some of the very best views of Living with the Land attraction as the characters roam around and visit Guests from the inner ring. I loved being able to take some socially distanced selfies and the interactions here are wonderful because each character stopped by a few times! I would definitely recommend dining reservations at both of these restaurants if you choose to dine here. 

    Lisa, I hope you all have the most enchanting vacation together!
