    Hi! We are planning a trip for November and would love some insider tips on the best table service restaurants at the different parks. We have never been to Epcot or Animal Kingdom but do have some experience at Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios.

    Hi Vanessa!

    Thanks so much for asking about my favorite part of Walt Disney World - the food! I'm happy to give you my best recommendations for table-service restaurants at the different theme parks.

    Since you haven't been to Epcot or Animal Kingdom Theme Park, let's start there. At Epcot, World Showcase is a haven of amazing restaurants. If you like steak or cheese soup, then Le Cellier Steakhouse in the Canada Pavilion is my choice. I just ate at Teppan Edo in Japan for the millionth time, because I love hibachi and can drink my weight in Yum Yum sauce. Perhaps my favorite restaurant in Epcot is Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria in Italy. The wood-fired pizza is incredibly delicious (get the Prosciutto e Melone Pizza) and budget-friendly, because they're shareable. 

    At Animal Kingdom, I really enjoy Tusker House Restaurant. I'm not a very adventurous eater when it comes to certain spices. Here I love being able to try out of the ordinary things on the menu, but also having safe options, since it's a buffet. Plus it's a character meal, and anytime I get to see Donald Duck in his safari outfit, I'm happy. However, since Satu'li Canteen in Pandora is hands down the best quick-service restaurant on Walt Disney World Resort property, I would not hesitate to eat there for multiple meals. The blueberry cream cheese mousse is everything.

    My favorite table-service restaurant in Magic Kingdom is Be Our Guest Restaurant. The ambiance alone in Beast's Castle seals the deal for me, but the cupcakes are divine, too. In Disney's Hollywood Studios, 50's Prime Time Cafe is my pick for a good time if you like comfort foods. Be sure to eat all your veggies, or your server may just stick you in the corner.

    I hope this helps, Vanessa! Bon appétit!
