My Favorite Restaurants at
The table service restaurants
that I include in my favorite restaurants at
Disney World have really good food with hearty
portions. If you eat an average amount of food
at a meal, you may find that two adults can
split one meal (Disney does not frown on this
and will be happy to bring an extra plate),
and with the addition of beverage and dessert,
both will be quite satisfied. Note that tax
and gratuity are additional at table service
restaurants. Priority seating is recommended
for the table service restaurants.
The counter service restaurants
also serve hearty portions and one kid's meal
is adequate for two young children with the
addition of an extra beverage. It is permissible
for adults to order a kids meal too if they
are lighter eaters. Note: to eat at a restaurant
in the parks, you must have an admission ticket
for the park.
Service: Cinderella's Royal Table at the
Castle (call for priority seating early!) Breakfast,
lunch, and dinner are served at Cinderella's
Royal Table. Breakfast begins at 8:00 a.m. with
hearty servings of scrambled eggs, bacon and
sausage, potatoes, pastries, fruit, granola,
and beverages. This "Once Upon a Breakfast"
Disney Character meal sells out in the first
15 minutes it becomes available; see tips for
Insider Tip: If you are there for the first
seating, you will be in the park before it opens!
The "Fairytale Lunch" is
served from Noon to 3 p.m. Adults can choose
from pasta, grilled salmon, ham & turkey
sandwich on focaccia, and prime rib. Kids menu
includes pasta, chicken strips, pretzel dogs,
and prime rib. Magic Kingdom's dinner
has a choice of several delicious entrees including
tuna, beef, lamb, pork tenderloin, and Portabello
mushrooms.The kids menu is the same as for lunch.
For a souvenir purchase the Bibbiddi Bobbiddi
Brew frozen smoothie served in the Cinderella
Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe in Tomorrowland,
serving lunch and dinner
Children like this fast food restaurant with
kid-friendly foods like cheeseburgers, corn
dogs, chicken nuggets, hot dogs, and fries.

sandwiches, and salads to choose from. An animated
