BUT many of our favorite restaurants are found at the over 20 Disney World resort hotels! Today, we’re going to tell you about the best meals you can get without ever leaving your resort.
It seems like there’s a holiday for everything these days… and I’m not mad about it! Today is National Lobster Day so we’ve rounded up a few lobster-centric dishes to try at Disney World!
If you’re at Disney Springs, head over to the Mac & Cheese Food Truck, where you will find some delicious Lobster and Shrimp Mac & Cheese!
Happy Saturday! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and we’re talkin’ ’bout BURGERS!
The burger scene in Disney World, believe it or not, has really changed over the past couple of years…. and for the better, at that. So we thought this would be a great time to share what we think are the best burgers in Disney World with nods to some longtime favorites as well as some limited run get-’em-while-you-can-right-now burgers. Because, thankfully, you’re never far from a great burger in Disney World these days! [Read more…]
With so many dining options to try at Walt Disney World, it’s not every trip that I’m able to return to some classic Resort restaurants — particularly if I’m not staying at the Resort in question.
Grand Floridian Cafe
But on a recent visit, I had a meeting that was (thankfully!) at the Grand Floridian Cafe. Located off the lobby in the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa’s main building, the Grand Floridian Cafe offers lovely views of the rose garden and courtyard pool beyond. It’s nice and tranquil, but not at all stuffy. So if you want to check out the Grand Floridian with your entire crew (including kiddos), this is a great place to try it.
The Cafe menu serves up traditional American dishes with a few nods to seafood and Southern fare in celebration of the Sunshine State, and our most recent trip here was for dinner. But a great feature at the Grand Floridian Cafe is the brunch-style menu offering breakfast dishes (in addition to the lunch offerings) through 2:00 pm. Hence the “Pancakes and Burger” mashup we’re reviewing today!
And there’s another big boon for the Grand Floridian Cafe: since it’s on the Resort Monorail loop, it’s easily accessible from Magic Kingdom and a terrific get-away if you need a little break from the park.
Like every restaurant at the Grand Floridian, the Cafe is simple and elegant. You won’t find over-the-top, Disney-fied theming in terms of characters or bright colors. But you will feel as though you’ve gone back to the Victorian Era (minus all the stiff social constructs). Check in takes place at a desk with white columns and great trim details.
Right away you’ll notice the lattice-and-flowers carpeting, which carries throughout the restaurant. The wood trim also continues into the dining room, where floral wallpaper and tasteful seating await.
