Disney Dining Tips: The Disney World Restaurant Search Tool!

Have you ever wished that with the push of a button you could figure out the PERFECT dining spots for your next Disney vacation?

Well, guess what? We’ve got you covered with the Disney Food Blog Restaurant Search Tool!

We LURVE Dining at Disney World, and we know that you do, too! But – wow! – with SOOOO many choices of where to eat, how in the World (ha!) do you narrow it down and make a decision?

We have taken 18 important Disney Dining search criteria and created a tool that will give you selections for the perfect Disney dining experience. And once you’ve narrowed down your restaurants, you can check out reviews, menus, and expert tips for each of them! Let’s take a look at how it works…

It’s incredibly easy (and actually pretty fun!) to use this tool.

1. Choose Criteria

You have 18 choices, so you can be as specific or as general as you

would like.

2. Narrow Down Your Choices

From there, start clicking on choices to narrow down the restaurants that are best for you and your family.

Feeling like Table Service, and you want to know all of your options? No problem! With a click of a button, you can display all of the table-service restaurants available to you.

Or, if you’re in the mood for a Counter Service Option, but you ONLY want to see the recommendations of Disney Food Blog, you can search by “DFB Favorite.”

Maybe you thought you wanted Table Service Italian, but now you’ve changed your mind and would like to see all of the options for Mexican instead. No problem. Simply uncheck the “Italian” box and check the “Mexican” box.

Or, if you want to start over altogether, just use the handy “Clear Search” button, and you can start all over with a clean slate!

Finding options that are Disney Dining Plan-eligible is also a snap!

3. Read Disney Restaurant Reviews, Menus, and Expert Tips for Each Restaurant

Once you’ve narrowed down your choices based on those 18 criteria, you can click any restaurant shown in the results to be taken to an information page about that spot! These info-pages are updated regularly to include:

  • Restaurant Reviews
  • Multiple Menus
  • Expert tips and tricks about each restaurant, and
  • All Disney Food Blog posts about that restaurant

We love this tool, and we think you will, too! It’s completely free — simply click here to get started!

And in addition to our Disney World Restaurant Search Tool, take a gander at the rest of our Disney Dining Tools, like our DFB Disney World Dining Guidebooks, our extensive Disney Dining FAQ section, and our Best Disney Restaurants section!

    I use this all the time. Every trip actually!
    I noticed that when you hit signature, there is a blank space where Yachtsman Steakhouse is supposed to be (could be my computer though)

    This is OUTSTANDING!!!! I cannot WAIT to get down to WDW and make use of it. THANK YOU SOOOOOO MUCH! Love your blog, and knowing how easy it will be to search through it next time we’re there will be something to look forward to.

    The tool is great but I do wish that when I searched for specifically lunch options it would not include locations that serve only snacks…..

    This is great!!! Love this idea and cannot wait to use it while planning my trip! The suggestion of an app, or mobile friendly is a great idea – I second that!

    Thanks for all you do!
