We are eating at Disney World every day, and that includes eating that most American of snacks, the BURGER! And we’ve had some great ones (and some not-so-great ones).
Some of these burgers are just UNIQUE, and some are just made so well that we always go back for more. And considering there are literally hundreds of burgers in Disney World’s restaurants, we’re putting together a list of our stand-outs, the ones we consider must-eats. So let’s get started!
Okay, you might argue that this isn’t TECHNICALLY a burger, but we would argue otherwise. It’s one of our favorite meals at Animal Kingdom. The Cheeseburger Pods at Satu’li Canteen. Seriously, these are steamed Bao Buns with actual burger ingredients inside, right down to ground beef, cheese, ketchup, mustard, and pickles. And it just WORKS.
You can find Cheeseburger Pods on the kids’ menu for $7.99 AND on the regular menu for $11.49. Kids get one pod, chips, an orange, and a drink, and grown-ups get two pods with vegetable slaw and chips.
If you find yourself over at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, head straight to Geyser Point Bar and Grill and treat yourself to the Bison Cheeseburger. This burger is $16 and comes topped with bacon, sweet crispy onion straws, marionberry sauce, lettuce, tomato, and garlic aioli. It’s served with crispy lightly-battered waffle fries.
What makes this so good is that the bison doesn’t taste super gamey, but the meat is juicy and just cooked perfectly. There are a lot of flavors here, but they always work really well together. This burger is $19.
Okay, so we’re not going to lie — we love a LOT of the burgers at D-Luxe Burger at Disney Springs, like the limited-time Double Bacon Stack Burger, the El Diablo Burger, the Southern Burger, and the Pepperoni Pizza Burger. But the standout for us is the Dubliner, which is a Signature-blend beef patty with Dubliner cheddar, corned beef, shoestring fried onions, Irish Stout Barbecue Sauce, lettuce, and grilled onions on top.
This baby has such a great combo of sweet and salty, and is a winner with us every single time! It’s not ALWAYS on the menu, but when it is, we suggest ordering it! (Note: it’s usually a St. Patrick’s Day offering.)
Regal Eagle Smokehouse: Crafts, Drafts, and Barbecue blew us away with its BBQ burger. It’s a 1/3 lb Angus burger on garlic toast, topped with BBQ pork, garlic aïoli, and a fried onion ring. ON GARLIC TOAST. And that juicy patty on garlic toast just takes this burger up a notch or two or three. And then the added BBQ pork? This is a meat lover’s dream!
You also get your choice of side (um…mac and cheese for us, always), and with that, this burger is $13.49.
Cheeseburger Spring Rolls
We were pretty happy when the Spring Roll Cart at Magic Kingdom reopened because we LOOOOVVVEEEE those Cheeseburger Spring Rolls. Again, not an actual burger. Buuuut these are a must-try for burger fans. And even with a TWO DOLLAR price increase, we still think they’re worth it.
Sure you can get Buffalo Chicken Spring Rolls, too. Right now, two rolls cost $9.50.
Gibson’s Sandwich King Burger
Let’s head over to Disney Springs to The Boathouse for the Gibson’s Sandwich King Burger. It’s a super juicy, well-seasoned burger loaded with fried cherry peppers, jalapeño havarti, and spiced mayo! Yeah, it’s that good. It’s won like awards and stuff.
If you’re looking to try it, just be sure you make Advance Dining Reservations — the Boathouse is one of those restaurants that’s super popular with Disney World guests!
Lobster Thermidor Burger
Yes, you can have Lobster on your burger and you can get it at the Grand Floridian Cafe at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. And it is DIVINE. The Lobster Thermidor Burger is a seven-ounce Artisanal Burger Patter with Lobster-Parmesan Thermidor Sauce on a Seared Brioche Bun. And it has a Parmesan Crisp, too! Like YES.
That sauce is really what makes this burger a superstar and we would lick that off the plate with ZERO shame. And well, it’s a burger WITH LOBSTER on it, so yeah… It’s $22 and is served with seasoned fries.
So there you have it — everything you need to have a burger crawl at Disney World. And we totally recommend each and every one of these burgers and hope you enjoy them as much as we did! Of course, there are WAY more burgers in Disney World but these are a few of our must-trys! What would you add to the list?!
