    What restaurants should we make sure to eat at while we are at Disney? There are so many options it's hard to choose!

    Hi Amanda! 

    There are so many wonderful dining options that I can understand how it's difficult to choose among them. My top tip for dining at Walt Disney World is to ensure that you make your Advanced Dining Reservations 180 days prior to your reservation to ensure you can get your desired location and time. Call 407-WDW-DINE to book.

    I'll give you my favorite restaurants in each category:

    Character Dining

    Cinderella's Royal Table in Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom - There is nothing like dining in the real Cinderella Castle and mingling with the princesses over a delish meal! I love the breakfast, especially the healthy yogurt option!

    Donald's Safari Breakfast at Animal Kingdom - I love the selection at breakfast, especially the Jungle Juice, and you can meet Mickey, Donald and more!

    Fine Dining

    California Grill offers a spectacular view of Cinderella Castle and Wishes bursting overhead. You get an unique birds eye view of Wishes from the balcony and they even pipe in the music. The food is also wonderful!

    Narcoosees at Grand Floridian Resort and Spa has great steak and seafood and you can even enjoy a great viewing the the Electrical Water Pageant at night

    Quick Service

    Peco's Bills in Magic Kingdom has the best burgers and they even have a burger bar where you can load up on mushrooms, lettuce, pickles and cheese to your liking!


    Aloha Isle in Magic Kingdom offers the famous Dole Whip, which is not to be missed! 

    Around the World

    I love all of the dining options at Epcot, but especially the Tangierine Cafe, with their delish Moroccan food and the pretzels at Sommerfest in Germany.
