Walt Disney World is home to some amazing restaurants. Each one provides excellent service, great food and an incredible atmosphere. Since there are so many different restaurants to choose from, it can be difficult to decide where you would like to dine. Of all the restaurants available, we have put together a list of 6 that you should try while visiting Walt Disney World. As a side note, while there are also wonderful restaurants available at some of the Disney resorts, we have kept this list to restaurants inside the parks. So without further ado, here are 6 Walt Disney World Restaurants you simply must try:
If you are looking for comfort food in a family style atmosphere, look no further than the Liberty Tree Tavern. This colonial-style inn is in the heart of Liberty Square in the Magic Kingdom. In each of the 6 dining rooms, there are artifacts associated with 6 pivotal figures in U.S. History. Apart from the theming, the Liberty Tree Tavern offers all the fixings of a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. Roasted Turkey, Carved Beef and Sliced Pork are the stars of dinner, with side dishes including mashed potatoes, stuffing, vegetables and macaroni and cheese. Dinner is served family-style, so plates of each dish stay at your table for you to try and there’s always more available if you run out. Make sure to leave room for dessert, since Johnny Appleseed’s Cake can be filling, but is the perfect way to finish your meal. For a cozy meal where you can relax and really enjoy the company of your group, the Liberty Tree Tavern is the perfect place to be.
5. Le Cellier Steakhouse
In the Canadian Pavilion at Epcot, Le Cellier Steakhouse is another cozy restaurant to relax in. The theming is based on the wine cellars of 2 unique Canadian hotels, Fairmont Le Château Frontenac and Fairmont Château Laurier. Given the wine cellar theme, there are tons of Canadian wines available for you to try while your servers can offer wine pairings depending on which dish you select. Although wine might visually be the center of attention, Le Cellier is known throughout Disney World for their steak. Whether it’s a Filet Mignon, New York Strip or the Black Angus Boneless Rib-Eye, you can’t go wrong choosing a steak and it will be a memorable meal for sure. If you’d rather try something else, the House-Made Potato Cannelloni is also a great choice, as is the Pan-Seared Halibut with a Crab-Beet Risotto, Maple-Onion Jam and Beet Chips. Some of the signature appetizers include the Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup and the Canadian Maple-Whisky-cured Salmon. If after your meal, you still miraculously have room for dessert, there is the Smoking Chocolate Mousse or the Maple Crème Brûlée. Le Cellier Steakhouse is definitely a satisfying meal. You will feel delightfully content as you head back into the World Showcase and since Canada is a great viewpoint for Illuminations, you can just hang around the restaurant after dinner until the show stars.
4. Yak & Yeti
Under the shadow of Expedition Everest, the Yak & Yeti is one of the few table service restaurants at Animal Kingdom. In a Nepalese style, the interior of the restaurant is designed to look like a typical village home that has been expanded. The menu offers dishes from all over Asia. You can start your meal with Pot Stickers, Egg Rolls or the Ahi Tuna Nachos along with a number of different appetizers. The Pan-Asian food is not meant to be a heavy meal, but one that is full of flavor. There are also a number of different dishes to choose from to showcase the wide variety of food in Asian culture. Fan favorite entrées include the Teriyaki Mahi Mahi, any of the Lo Mein dishes or the Seared Miso Salmon, but there are many more to try and each plate has a generous portion which makes it a perfect place to share with your group.
3. Teppan Edo
Authentic, energetic and always entertaining, the Teppan Edo are one of the main reasons to visit the restaurant. Nestled in the heart of the Japanese Pavilion, Teppan Edo is an experience that is equally balanced between the food and watching the chefs prepare the food right in front of your eyes. The skill of these chefs cannot be understated – they are truly spectacular. Each chef has his or her own tricks, which they will dazzle you with while preparing your order. You can choose from mainstays like steak, chicken and shrimp, or you can venture out and try the sea scallops or the swordfish. You can’t really go wrong with what you choose here, everything is delicious. And speaking of delicious, the perfect way to end your meal is with dessert, and at Teppan Edo they offer Chocolate Ginger Cake, Green Tea Cheesecake or Green Tea Soft Serve Ice Cream. None of the desserts are overly rich, they’re refreshing and end your meal on the perfect sweet note.

One of the most popular restaurants in Magic Kingdom, the Be Our Guest Restaurant is a beautiful mix of storytelling, ambience and fine dining. In the Beast’s Castle in Fantasyland, the restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. While breakfast and lunch are great ways to enjoy the restaurant and the castle, dinner is where the magic happens. You can dine in the Grand Ballroom, Castle Gallery, or even the West Wing, a slightly darker room with a great view of the enchanted rose. The Grand Ballroom is a spectacular room with intricately painted ceilings and floor to ceiling windows along the back with a gentle snowfall outside. Highlights on the menu include the Herb-crusted Lamb, Braised Pork, Pan-seared Salmon on Leek Fondue and the Layered Ratatouille. For dessert, try the “Grey Stuff” (it’s delicious) or any of the other desserts available on the dessert cart. The Be Our Guest Restaurant is a truly elegant dining experience.
In Epcot, there are so many different restaurants to try within the World Showcase. In the France Pavilion, Monsieur Paul is one that can be overlooked sometimes, given how small it is. It does, however, provide one of the best dining experiences in Walt Disney World. If you haven’t tried Monsieur Paul, make sure it’s on your list of restaurants the next time you go. French cuisine and French culture create the incredible atmosphere at the restaurant. The servers are incredibly knowledgeable and are an important part of the overall experience. In keeping with traditional French cuisine, each dish is full of flavor and leaves you fully satisfied. Entrées include a Red Snapper with potato scales, Seared Scallops, Roasted Duck Breast and a Chicken Ballotine. The Grilled Beef Tenderloin is also one of the highlights as it’s mouth-watering and delicious. Desserts can change depending on the evening, but you can truly appreciate the skill and delicate touch that goes into each one. Monsieur Paul is a wonderful dining experience that is both unique and memorable – you’re definitely in for the meal of a lifetime.
