21 Myths About Walt Disney World Food DEBUNKED

The World of Disney food is a complex and ever-changing one, and that makes keeping track of it all darn near impossible. That’s why you have us. ;) Here we will unravel 21 of the most prolific Myths About Walt Disney World food!

Ready to Head to Disney World?

Ready to Head to Disney World?

1. The kids’ menu is only for kids.

Y’all, if your vacation is packed full of Advance Dining Reservations and tasty quick service joints, you’ll want to know that this myth doesn’t hold water. Anyone can order from the kids’ menu — and if you or your traveling companions have eyes that are bigger than your stomachs, the kids’ menu might be just right for you! Often you can find similar offerings, both common (like chicken nuggets at Columbia Harbour House) and not so common (like sustainable fish bowls at Satu’li Canteen).

2. Only sit-down restaurants are high quality.
