I love hearing from you about your favorite restaurants and experiences in Disney parks and resorts. So as I gear up for another trip to Walt Disney World in the very near future, I’m sharing with you a few of my favorite restaurants at Disney resorts (aka: hotels)…and hoping you’ll share right back!
What are your favorite Disney World Hotel Restaurants, and why? What are the spots that keep you coming back, visit after visit?
I’ll tell you mine, and then I want to hear all about yours…
Beaches and Cream
If you know me, you know that Beaches and Cream Soda Shoppe is truly my go-to place (and it’s my parents’ go-to place…chances are you’ll see AJ’s Dad and AJ’s Mom there if you’re in Disney World at the same time they are)!
Nestled between the Yacht Club and Beach Club resorts, this table service restaurant — which does NOT accept reservations — is just like the soda fountains that you grew up going to (or hearing about)! This is THE place at Disney for burgers and ice cream treats, like my absolute favorite, the No Way Jose.
The ooey gooey peanut butter and hot fudge confection is pretty amazing, don’t you think?
Flying Fish Cafe
The Flying Fish Cafe at Disney’s Boardwalk Inn consistently wows me every time I dine there. With unique decor, awesome service, and inventive food, this spot currently holds one of the top spots on my list of hotel restaurants…and never disappoints.
Whether you choose seafood or a land lover’s option, you will leave happy! And fun desserts, like this Trio of Concession Sweets (a nice tribute to their spot on the Boardwalk) are just the icing on the cake.
Jiko…The Cooking Place
Romance, incredible food, and an upscale atmosphere are in store at Jiko. This place is a hidden gem, and serves consistently delicious and interesting food inspired by the flavors of Africa.
They also boast one of the largest collections of South African wines in the world along with one of the best filet mignons on property. (It used to come standard with their phenomenal mac and cheese, but can now be specially ordered with the side dish.)
This restaurant is a guest favorite for both breakfast and dinner — and it’s a tough reservation to get — but it’s so worth it.
One of my favorite things about ‘Ohana is the gorgeous view. Head over during the day and feel instantly relaxed as you gaze out on Seven Seas Lagoon and Cinderella castle. Head over at night and get a grand view of the Magic Kingdom fireworks as they dim the lights and play the music right there in the restaurant.
But, hands down, my FAVORITE thing about ‘Ohana? The bread pudding. I’m pretty sure I could eat that whole thing every single day and never get tired of it. The best part? It’s all-you-can-eat!
