Heading to Magic Kingdom soon and have NO IDEA where to eat? We got you covered!
We’ve reviewed our fair share of Magic Kingdom table service and counter service restaurants, along with all of the tasty snacks you can imagine! So you’ll want to make sure you read up on the options available to you so you can make the best food choices for your travel party!
Table Service Restaurants
Be Our Guest Restaurant
Be Our Guest Restaurant is at the top of many guests’ “To Do” lists, and for good reason! The atmosphere alone is all you need to be convinced that this is a must-try, especially if you’ve never visited the Beast’s castle!
If you’re considering dining here, it’s important to read up on some of the changes we’ve seen since the parks reopened last summer. For now, both lunch AND dinner at Be Our Guest features their signature prix-fixe menu (with signature prix-fixe prices), and breakfast is unavailable.
Cinderella’s Royal Table
Another “bucket list” Magic Kingdom restaurant is Cinderella’s Royal Table. Located inside Cinderella Castle, you couldn’t possibly come up with a better spot in the park to dine! Like Be Our Guest, Cinderella’s Royal Table has gone through some pretty big changes in the last year.
As of this writing, Cinderella’s Royal Table does NOT include character interactions. Cinderella will occasionally enter the restaurant to greet her guests from afar, but that’s it! And you’re STILL paying top dollar to dine here! Be sure to read our most recent review that covers all of these changes so you’ll know if this is something you’re still willing to invest your dining dollars in.
The Plaza Restaurant
While Be Our Guest and Cinderella’s Royal Table are among the most popular restaurants in Magic Kingdom (and in all of Disney World), there are other great Table Service restaurants to consider on your next trip! Case in point: The Plaza Restaurant.
This charming little restaurant on the corner of Main Street, U.S.A. now has a revamped menu, so it’s worth reading about if you’ve been before and are considering a return trip!
Liberty Tree Tavern
One of our favorite Table Service restaurants in Magic Kingdom has got to be Liberty Tree Tavern. From its cozy atmosphere to that incredible Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake, it’s well worth a repeat visit if you’ve already dined here!
You can read our most recent review of Liberty Tree Tavern below!
Tony’s Town Square
As long as we’re talking about Table Service restaurants in Magic Kingdom, we might as well throw in Tony’s Town Square for good measure.
If you only have one day in Magic Kingdom and you want to pick the best of the best when it comes to Table Service dining, there are likely better options out there for you and your family. But if you’re curious about what Tony’s has to offer, we have a recent review below for you to check out!
Counter Service Restaurants
Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn & Cafe
Now let’s talk about a few Counter Service restaurants you should read up on before visiting Magic Kingdom! Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn & Cafe is a great spot in that it offers plenty of seating, and its menu has gone through some changes over the years to offer healthier alternatives!
It’s also a good idea to read up on Mobile Order in Disney World before you make your trip to Magic Kingdom, as you’ll be using that as your primary means of ordering and picking up Counter Service food these days!
Tomorrowland Terrace Restaurant
If you haven’t been to Magic Kingdom since the parks reopened last summer, you’ll definitely want to read our recent review of Tomorrowland Terrace Restaurant. This Counter Service dining location went through a pretty significant change in that it currently serves Columbia Harbour House‘s menu!
While Columbia Harbour House is being utilized as an extended queue space for Peter Pan’s Flight, you can find your fish, shrimp, and more at Tomorrowland Terrace.
Pinocchio Village Haus
A third Counter Service dining location you should consider reading about before your next trip to Magic Kingdom is Pinocchio Village Haus.
We recently compiled a full review of this restaurant for you to study up on, including our thoughts on some (rather sad-looking) pizzas.
In between your meals, there are a variety of iconic snacks you should consider checking out on your Magic Kingdom day! Magic Kingdom is, of course, where you’ll find the famous Dole Whip, but if you want to take your snacking up to the next level, consider trying the Kakamora Float!
This frozen treat stole our hearts when it first debuted during the holiday season in 2019 at Aloha Isle, and it has been a favorite of ours ever since.
The Grey Stuff Cupcake
There, you’ll find The Grey Stuff Cupcake — a chocolate cupcake topped with Grey Stuff, candy pearls, and a chocolate square decoration. It truly is as delicious as Lumiere promises it to be!
Corn Dog Nuggets
Corn Dog Nuggets are another iconic snack that we keep coming back to eat again and again. Normally at Casey’s Corner, these bite-size delights can currently be found at Westward Ho Refreshments in Frontierland.
One day we’ll get our nuggets at Casey’s Corner, but as of this writing, it’s STILL closed! Bummer! Make sure you read our post about where exactly you can find Corn Dog Nuggets in the meantime!
Fresh Fruit and Nutella Waffle Sandwich HACK
Our last snack review that we wanted to fill you in on is actually a HACK that we concocted earlier this year. One of our favorite Magic Kingdom snacks is the Nutella and Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich from Sleepy Hollow Refreshments. We combined its ingredients with a scoop of ice cream from Tomorrowland Terrace and presto!
Keep in mind that currently, you can only get the Nutella and Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich for breakfast, so this would be quite the rich and heavy early morning snack if you wanted to give it a try!
We hoped this gave you a good place to start when it comes to reading up on our recent reviews of restaurants and snacks around Magic Kingdom! If you need more ideas on what to do on your Magic Kingdom day, be sure to check out our video below!
