Guest Review: A Teen’s Favorite Disney Restaurants

Today, join me in welcoming guest author Gigi M. for a unique teen perspective on Disney World’s restaurants!

You might be wondering “What are good restaurants to take my teen to at Walt Disney World”? Well, that certainly depends on your child’s personality and his or her attitude toward going to Disney World.

Below, I’ve listed several “types” of teen, followed by what restaurants might be enjoyed by that type of person.

I’d love to hear what you think! What restaurants does your teen love?

    Thanks for the fun post! I’m going to be 31 in about a week and it made me try and remember what were my favs back then.
    It was a restaurant that is no longer there, Alfredo’s. I just loved getting a big ol plate of real fettucine Alfredo….the kind just doused with butter and fresh Parmesan. And another main draw? The hot Italian waiters!
    For a 16 year old boy/girl crazy teen, I recommend Epcot. :)

    These lists are great and I’ll be looking them over when planning our next trip. Thanks for posting!

    I went a couple of times as a teen, but the highlight that I remember was 50’s Prime Time! There was a group of my friends and we had so much fun there!

  4. Janell says

    My teens (14,14 & 18) love trying the food in all the Epcot countries.
    France was a favorite, but Bona is always on their list.

  5. Tiffani says

    We have taken our 3 teenagers twice now and their favorite places to eat were Nine Dragons in China, Tonys Town Square and Whispering Canyon. We also ate at the 50’s diner and I would say that was their 4th favorite.
