Tips From the DFB Guide: Our Top 3 Tips for Late Night Disney World Dining

You’ve just arrived at Walt Disney World and it’s late, and you’re starving. Or you’ve finished at the Park for the day, it’s late, and you’re starving. Or you’ve wrapped up a fun time at Fantasia Golf and — well, you get the gist.

Where do you go in Walt Disney World when you’re starving and want to score a late night bite?

Well, there are lots of places, actually! But today, I thought we’d take a closer look at three of our favorites featured in the DFB Guide to Walt Disney World Dining e-Book!

Raglan Road Irish Pub

While there are several spots at Downtown Disney where you can enjoy a late night bite to eat, Raglan Road is one of our favorites.

The menu features a mix of comforting, traditional Irish pub food with some fusion flavors, like curry. We have lots of favorites here, but one of the best dishes on the menu is the Fish and Chips! And no worries if you follow a gluten-free approach to eating — their Gluten-Free Fish and Chips are just as fantastic as the traditional version (some even like them better).

But menu is only half the draw here. You’ll also find live music and traditional Irish dancing nightly.

Although it can be tough to get a walk-up table during the earlier evening hours, it’s a little easier to grab a spot later at night. The full menu is available until 11PM; order from the bar menu from 11PM until “late”.

Gasparilla Island Grill

Regardless of the hour, night or day, you can find something to eat at Gasparilla Island Grill.

Located at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, it’s a monorail stop away from both Magic Kingdom and the Ticket and Transportation Center. You’ll find a full array of grilled items, salads, pizza, and flatbreads. We absolutely loved the Margherita Flatbread when we tried it on a recent visit!

Enjoy the full dinner menu until 11:30PM. After that time, there’s a limited hot food menu available until 6:00AM, supplemented by an extensive grab and go selection.

ESPN Club

Sports lovers will love this next tip. Because what could be a better way to wind down after a fun day at Disney (or a not-so-fun day of travel!) than by hanging out at the best sports bar ever?

ESPN Club at Disney’s BoardWalk is THE place to go if you love your sports with a side of food. There are televisions everywhere — even in the bathrooms! — so you’ll never miss a moment of the action. And with fun sports memorabilia lining the walls, you’ll always have something to look at.

Need a menu recommendation? We love the typical bar bites you can get here, but you can’t go wrong with the ESPN Dingers — Boneless Chicken Wings served with your choice of sauce. I’ll go for the Hot Sauce every time!

And since they serve until 1:00AM, they make for a great late night stop!

    There’s also Picabu at the Dolphin- it’s open 24 hours and the food is absolutely delicious! I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve eaten there, but my faves are their chicken wings and pizza.

  2. Shireen says:

    I agree with Sara..Picabu is great! They have great nachos with every topping you can imagine. They also have an awesome breakfast. My family stays there almost every time we are in Disney… 3 more weeks and we will be there again!!

    I don’t think I’d qualify curry as “fusion flavors.” Curry is traditional /British/ Pub food.
