Let’s face it — when it comes to Disney World, you’re pretty much living on Disney World time.
That means you’re subject to Disney World’s schedule, meaning that you probably aren’t going to make any 2AM snack runs to 7-Eleven like you might do at home when you can’t sleep and you want some food. But there are SOME late-night dining options available at Disney World, maybe even more than you think.
So we’ve looked at every single restaurant’s hours at Disney World and figured out which ones have late-night dining available — and, for this list, we decided to focus on restaurants open at least until 11PM. However, take note that hours for restaurants can change often, so before you head out to grab that late-night bite to eat, be sure to check the hours for yourself either via calling Disney Dining at (407) 939-6690 or checking the My Disney Experience app.
Over at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn, Big River Grille Brewing & River Works is open to 11PM on Fridays and Saturdays and has its full menu available, so if you’re looking for more of a meal than just a quick little bite, this could be a spot for you.
Though AbracadaBar can satisfy that desire for a unique cocktail and an engaging setting, be aware that its limited food menu is only available until 9PM. So if AbracadaBar is on your late-night list, plan accordingly!
Likewise, you can also grab some small bites (we’re talkin’ the likes of Nachos or a Mickey Pretzel) from BoardWalk Joe’s Marvelous Margaritas, which is open daily to 11PM.
At Disney’s Yacht Club, you can grab some snacks at the Ale and Compass Lounge, open from 4PM to 11PM. Nothing says “sweet dreams” quite like carb-loading with the Ale and Compass Parker House Rolls right before bed. You never have to go to bed on an empty stomach with these jewels around. (They’re basically just fluffy carby vehicles for those stellar spreads!)
At Disney’s Beach Club, though Martha’s Vineyard is open until 11PM, you can only order off of its appetizer-style menu until 10pm.
If you’re at the Beach Club and need some serious late-night grub, then your best bet is to head over to the Beach Club Marketplace which is open until 11PM. Here you can find some hearty sandwiches and pasta entrees.
There are a lot of choices available to nom on some late-night nosh at Coronado Springs. So if you’re a late-night eater, you might want to consider a stay here. The Dahlia Lounge and Three Bridges Bar and Grill are both open until midnight. A perfect end to a park day might just be this view from the Three Bridges Bar and Grill, some chips and guacamole, and a glass of sangria before heading to bed.
El Mercado de Coronado and Laguna Bar are both open until 11PM. And though we love Watchos (essentially nachos served on waffle fries!) as much (or more) than the next guy, for $15 at Laguna Bar, we can also saunter over to El Mercado de Coronado and, for the about the same price, grab a full cheeseburger or some pizza.
In comparison, the Grand Floridian only has a few spots open relatively late. Enchanted Rose is open until 11PM. This elegant lounge is inspired by Beauty and the Beast and offers a limited menu including Truffle Fries, Mini Smoked Brisket Sliders, and House-made Flatbread along with a full bar and some unique cocktails.
Gasparilla Island Grill is also open until 11PM (though this spot USED to be open 24 hours!), and it’ll provide some more casual fare like sandwiches, salads, and burgers to eat there or take to-go for a picnic in your room.
You’ll find quite a few options for late-night dining options at the Swan and Dolphin Resorts. At the Swan, Il Mulino (and its lounge) is open until 11PM, and you have its full menu of Italian fare to choose from.
Kimonos (and its lounge) is open LATE, until 1AM — we’d never turn down sushi any time of day.
At the Dolphin, both The Fountain and Shula’s Steakhouse are open daily until 11PM. So, whether you’re craving something on the casual side, like a Turkey Patty Melt and Banana Split from The Fountain, or are leaning more toward the sophisticated side, like Prime Rib or Maryland-style Crab Cake from Shula’s, the Dolphin Resort has you covered!
Late-night steak? Sign us up! Plus, Phins Lounge is open until midnight with some smaller bites like Street Tacos and Lamb Meatballs!
Things are pretty quiet at night at the Wilderness Lodge, but you can find some delicious meals at Geyser Point Bar & Grill Lounge where they offer “small bites” until 11PM, which include Teriyaki Chicken Wings, Cheesy Barbecue Brisket, and Handcrafted Cheese & Charcuterie.
Territory Lounge is also open until 11PM and offers a limited menu including Oregon Chardonnay Fondue, House-smoked Chipotle Barbecue Ribs, and some seasonal bites. Since Territory Lounge is one of our favorite tucked-away spots, you bet that each of these options has the DFB stamp of approval! (Note that recently this spot has been closing at 10PM instead of 11PM — double-check during your trip to see when it closes.)
The term “lounge” here is loose though — it’s VERY small. So plan ahead if you know you’re going to want to eat something late at night and you’re staying here.
If you’ve got late-night cravings and you can manage to actually get in, Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto is your best bet at the Polynesian — it’s open until midnight. This will fill all your boozy fun drink desires, but the food menu can be a bit limited.
Otherwise, you can check out Tambu Lounge, which is open until 11PM. Similarly, Cap’t. Cook’s, the hotel’s resident fast-food spot, is open til 11PM most nights (another spot we miss being 24 hours!).
The Contemporary Resort has some of the most popular and iconic restaurants at Disney World, but only one is open until 11PM for some late-time nosh. Contempo Cafe located in the main concourse near Chef Mickey’s has you covered if you have a case of the munchies at the end of your day.
We love the Peanut Butter Pie that you can often find here for $5.19, but you can also enjoy a full quick-service meal with options like the Contempo Burger, Contempo Ceasar Salad, or All-Meat Flatbread all for around $12! The nearby Outer Rim lounge is also open until 11 pm, but you’ll only find beer, wine, and cocktails here — no food is offered on their menu.
We highly recommend the Stack Burger, Steakhouse 71 Onion Rings, or Bacon & Eggs here!
Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort
If your tropical vacation vibes have you searching for a snack or meal after hours, unfortunately, Caribbean Beach Resort doesn’t have a lot of options. You CAN find some grab-and-go selections at the Centertown Market Grab & Go. You’ll find some classic refrigerated options like Turkey Sandwiches, Chicken Romaine Salads, Fruit Cups, and an assortment of pastries. You’ll find entrees in the $8-$10 range and sides and snacks around $5 or so.
Will this be the most memorable meal of your trip? Likely not. But if you’re looking for something to fill your belly before bed, you’ve got some options!
Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort
Saratoga Springs doesn’t always get the best accolades for restaurants. Let’s face it, with Disney Springs as its neighbor, that’s some stiff competition! The Artist’s Palette provides some comfort-favorites like chicken nuggets and fresh salads, but it gets some bonus points for its plant-based Asian Noodle Bowl for $12.99 that you can grab until 11PM.
If your inner carnivore is on the prowl, you could also be happy with the hot Cheese Steak Sandwich for $11.99. And remember, Disney Springs is only a short walk or boat ride away for even MORE late-night options!
The good news is that many Disney Springs restaurants are open as late as Disney Springs is, and right now the shopping area’s hours extend as late as 11PM, or even 11:30PM on some days. Here are the restaurants that are usually open until Disney Springs closes:
- 4 Rivers Cantina Barbacoa Food Truck
- Amorette’s Patisserie
- B.B. Wolf’s Sausage Co.
- The BOATHOUSE
- The Daily Poutine
So if all else fails, head to Disney Springs for some late-night eating. But, as we previously said, double-check the restaurants’ hours before you head out the door!
Yep, you read that right. Last but certainly not least, the Golden Arches. If you’re desperate, and your wallet is still recovering from a full day of Disney spending, there is a McDonald’s on Disney property (near Animal Kingdom and the All-Star resorts) where you can find your favorite value meals or Happy Meals.
Usually, open until midnight, pick up your favorites before heading back to your hotel. The biggest mystery about this dining spot is if your fries will survive the ride back to your hotel. Are you like us and end up eating them all on the drive? (Who are we kidding, they don’t stand a chance!)
Honorable Mention: Extended Theme Park Hours
Some Disney World guests will qualify to stay late in the parks for Extended Evening Hours, which are only offered to guests staying at Deluxe resorts.
During these extra hours (which often last to midnight or beyond), some restaurants are open in the parks! As of now, the extra hours are usually available on select days at Magic Kingdom and EPCOT, although Disney’s Hollywood Studios has also seen this perk once.
