Disney World is the most magical vacation destination on earth. The Central Florida Disney Resort offers world-class entertainment, thrilling attractions, state-of-the-art ride technologies, exceptional Resort hotel accommodations, and great food–lots and lots of food. And Guests who frequent the parks always have their favorite dining venues–and those they plan to experience on a future visit to the parks.

One of the Walt Disney World restaurants at the top of many Guests’ Disney experience wish lists has just been named the “Most Award-Winning Restaurant in the United States,” though it’s a venue that many Guests have yet to experience–and one that some never even knew existed.

According to a Trips to Discover survey that compiled the top 10 most award-winning restaurants in the United States, the #1 most award-winning dining spot in the country is located just outside of Orlando–in the city of Bay Lake, Florida, at the Walt Disney World Resort. In fact, it’s the only restaurant in the state of Florida to make the list.

The survey looks at awards won by restaurants around the country and included in its compilation many 3-Star Michelin, 5-Star Forbes, and AAA-rated restaurants and used reviews from TripAdvisor and Google scores to create the ranking. The #1 spot belongs to Victoria & Albert’s restaurant at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.
