It was so incredibly difficult to stop this list at ten! Disney Springs is a hot spot for all the latest and greatest things: food, shopping, and entertainment. There are SO many table service and quick serve restaurants at Disney Springs that it is almost impossible to narrow down the best. So this list includes a bit of a mix of upscale, grab and go, and snacks, so that everyone can get a taste of the goodness!
10. Disney Food Trucks
The food trucks bring some Park flavor to the Springs! These small bites are perfect for a quick snack or sharing. They’re conveniently placed right by the water on West Side, so it’s easy to just grab and go! These trucks have options from Epcot and Magic Kingdom, like chicken and lamb gyros and shrimp and lobster mac and cheese. They also have a fun selection of tacos and many beers. And, to complete the Park fare, you can grab a Mickey Bar here too!
9. Amorette’s Patisserie
Ooh la la! Amorette’s Patisserie just screams indulgence. This high-end bakery serves some of the best cakes and pastries in all of Disney. Disney’s website describes Amorette’s as ‘artsy, yet sophisticated,’ and I think that sums it up perfectly! Here you’ll be able to order delicious, rich snacks, or a crepe for lunch! The cakes are the highlight here, though. Enjoy a selection of signature character cakes with chocolate mousse, raspberry pate de fruit jelly, Italian buttercream and more! Plus these amazing cakes can be preordered for any special occasion!
This is the only restaurant that I know of in the shape of a pineapple. That automatically gives it points in my book. Bongos is owned by Gloria and Emilio Estafan and serves only authentic Cuban cuisine. The interior of Bongos is a party. There’s no other way to describe it. Its menu has a mix of the familiar and unique, from a traditional Caesar salad to bacon-wrapped plantains. Bongos is certainly not lacking in flavors. This restaurant turns up the heat in more ways than one!

7. Polite Pig
Barbeque, anyone? This is not the fanciest restaurant on this list or in Disney Springs, but it has a great menu of good old-fashioned comfort food. But with a twist. The items on the Polite Pig menu include things like ribs and brisket, but present them with a coffee-rub or jalapeño cornbread to make it something really special. Polite Pig also has some great salads and sandwiches. This restaurant is especially awesome for bourbon lovers. The Polite Pig bar menu has a massive selection of bourbons, from reserve to flights.
6. Wine Bar George
Bring on the wine. Wine Bar George quite obviously specializes in wine, with a whopping 130 options. But their small plates and boards are awesome too. Wine Bar George is a casual, yet elegant place to unwind with friends or family. Most of the food on their menu is perfect for sharing, like a cheese board or wine-braised chicken (but the wine is all yours!). They also have really cool desserts, like olive oil cake or The Chocolate Experience, a chocolate and wine tasting treat!
5. Raglan Road
Who doesn’t love dinner and a show? Raglan Road is a totally unique dining experience in Disney Springs. Walking inside this eclectic restaurant is like walking inside an actual pub in Ireland. From the wooden décor to the slightest hint of a smell of Guinness, this pub has it all. The food is all authentic and always delicious. But the thing that makes this restaurant stand out is the dancing during the meal. Periodically, the Raglan Road Dancers will come out to entertain with some toe-tapping tunes. It feels just like Ireland and I love it!
4. Terralina Crafted Italian
Terralina is the perfect Disney Springs restaurant for all the Italian food lovers out there. This cozy choice has a huge selection of classic Italian favorites, with some additional innovative gems. Their menu items are so fresh and fun! They have spectacular appetizers for small bites, like an antipasti tower and crab crostini, and delicious salads. There are several pizzas and sandwiches to choose from, too! But they have amazing pastas, such as ravioli gigante, and grill and hearth items! But make sure you save room for dessert, like the flourless chocolate cake!
3. The Edison
For a totally unique dining experience, The Edison is the way to go. Decorated to look lavishly gothic, this restaurant brings you back in time to when the industrial age was just getting started. This restaurant has weird, yet inventive menu items like DB ‘Clotheslined Candied Bacon,’ which is exactly what it sounds like and delicious! After 10:00 pm, The Edison becomes a 21 or over restaurant. At this point a dress code comes into play – no caps, sleeveless shirts, or flip flops! Instead, you get amazing live entertainment and a late night menu!
The Boathouse specializes in seafood, and their menu is extraordinary. All freshly caught, this menu is decadent. As its name suggests, Boathouse has an entirely nautical theme, while remaining incredibly elegant. This upscale seafood joint is waterfront, which means you can enjoy views of the Disney Spring marina all night long. And if seafood is not your thing, they also have some awesome steakhouse choices on the menu. Or you can do a surf and turf situation and have the best of both worlds!
1. Morimoto Asia
Morimoto Asia is quickly becoming one of the hottest spots in Disney. It is known for its high class Asian cuisine, including ramen bowls and freshly prepared sushi. The interior of Morimoto Asia is elegantly decorated in chic flash. If you’re a sushi person, this is a must for you. The menu is unbelievable. Individual rolls are pricey, but not out of the question. But there are also sharing items that reach into the $200 range. If you want a taste of Morimoto, but not the full experience, check out Morimoto Asia Street Food just next door!
