Planning A Progressive Supper at the Magic Kingdom

Have you ever wished you could make a meal out of all the yummy options around the Disney Parks? I know I have. What if we made food the star of the show and planned a progressive supper at Walt Disney World? That is exactly what this series will do, we are going to plan a progressive supper in each Park at Walt Disney World and at Disney Springs.

In case you are unfamiliar with the term, a progressive supper involves eating different courses and different locations. Also known as a safari supper, this dining rhythm enables Guests to enjoy the best food selection in each location and encourages diners to slow down and enjoy the experience of a meal. This is how my progressive supper at the Magic Kingdom would unfold.

Picture yourself walking down Main Street U.S.A. and turning toward Tomorrowland to start our progressive supper adventure. All great meals start with a fresh salad. Yes, you can get an awesome salad on a Disney vacation. What better place to kick off our progressive supper than in Tomorrowland at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight CafĂ©! The Greek salad is an excellent start to our journey.

Ringing up at $8.99, this fresh salad is tossed with tomato relish, crunchy banana peppers, and Kalamata olives. Delicious feta cheese dots the dish and the whole plate is drizzled with Greek feta vinaigrette dressing. Take some time to kick back and enjoy the ambiance of this Tomorrowland eatery as you enjoy this course and views of this part of the Park.

To be honest, you know exactly where I am going with this course. When you think of soup in the Magic Kingdom, you probably think of the rich and decadent French Onion Soup from Be Our Guest Restaurant in Fantasyland. If this was your guess, you are correct!

A steamy pot of rich brown French Onion Soup with bobbing chunks of soaked baguette and hot stringy Gruyère cheese is hard to beat at any restaurant. Offer me French Onion Soup in Beast’s enchanted castle, and I am not going to pass it up! This soup ranks among my favorites at Walt Disney World Resort.

Ready for a cocktail? Me too! Let’s move our progressive supper over to Liberty Square for our next stop. Our next restaurant is none other than Liberty Tree Tavern. This early Americana restaurant pays tribute to the colonies and serves up colonial inn style food and drinks. There’s an excellent all you care to enjoy family-style meal available that we suggest you try on another visit. Today we’re here for cocktails.

Lucky for us, Liberty Tree Tavern has a delicious and patriotic Liberty Sangria that is not to be missed. Made from red wine with notes of apple and spice, this sangria hits the spot and is perfectly themed for its home in Liberty Tree Tavern. This drink comes in at $11 per glass and makes the perfect sip before we launch into our next course.

We are continuing our gastronomic dinner adventure in, well, Adventureland. Spring Rolls make for a perfect bite-sized appetizer. Visit the Spring Roll Cart in Adventureland to snag a pair of crunchy and delicious spring rolls as your appetizer.

You can’t make a wrong choice, and flavors are changed frequently. We are massive fans of the cheeseburger spring rolls, a crunchy bite of cheeseburger heaven for $9.50. But rest assured that whether you try cheeseburger spring rolls, 50th Celebration Spring Rolls, Pizza Spring Rolls, or any other delicious flavors, you will be impressed with this appetizer.

Our main course is closer than you might think. Just a short walk away from the Spring Roll Cart, you will find Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen. I’m a huge fan of this restaurant, largely because Adventureland is my favorite land. This eatery is inspired by African, Asian, and Latin cuisines and offers a fusion of dishes with a themed thread that is Jungle Cruise meets Caribbean island meets The Swiss Family Robinson vibes. Hopefully, you get the picture, this food is incredibly unique and incredibly delicious.

For dinner, we suggest the Doctor Falls Signature Grilled Steak. This adobo-seasoned New York strip is served with collard greens and caramelized onion purĂ©e, alongside a chorizo hash and crispy farofa. This yummy entrĂ©e rings in at $36. Nothing beats a steak as far as we’re concerned, but if you were looking for other entrĂ©es on this menu, we are also huge fans of the Perkins Thai noodles and the “Tastes like Chicken Because it is!”.

Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen serves up delicious dishes you might not expect to find in a theme park. This dining option is so fun and yummy, it is not to be missed.

Dessert is just around the corner, literally at Liberty Square’s Sleepy Hollow Refreshments. Readers know that The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad are among my favorite Disney movies, so of course, this progressive supper has to stop by Sleepy Hollow Refreshments. This eatery serves up delectable Belgian waffles and funnel cakes that are truly incredible.

Tonight’s dessert will be a Nutella and Fresh Fruit Waffle. Pretty simple but incredibly delicious, this dessert is a portable, piping hot Belgian waffle slathered with chocolatey Nutella, fresh strawberries, and juicy blueberries. It’s hard to beat such a decadent and classic dessert.

Want an after-dinner coffee? We have great recommendations to end this progressive supper. Drop by Starbucks on Main Street U.S.A. to end your night on a high note and enjoy the evening ambiance of the park while you sip coffee.

You likely have a favorite that you will gravitate to, but we always go for a Venti Iced Coffee with cream. Blended or frozen coffees are also an excellent after-dinner treat to sip as you stroll Main Street, U.S.A., and wind down your day in the parks. We hope you enjoyed this progressive supper through the Magic Kingdom!

About Katie Chapman

Hey There! I am a Georgia native with a passion for writing, traveling, cooking, decorating, pugs and of course all things Disney. Growing up in South Georgia just a few hours from Walt Disney World made for a magical childhood. Some of my best memories were made on Main Street U.S.A. with my sister watching SpectroMagic nighttime parade or beside my grandparents, parents and extended family at Chef Mickey’s celebrating on a family vacation. Epcot was my favorite park from a young age and I credit it with my interest in and love for international travel. As a kid I loved meeting characters and watching films around World Showcase and could spend hours exploring each of the countries in Epcot. These days, my husband and I get away to explore a new country whenever we can and even incorporate trips to The Disney Store and Disney Parks around the world in our travels. One of our travel goals is to visit every Disney Park in the world. I love writing about Disney restaurants, park tips, Disney outfit inspiration and Disney history. Pocahontas is my favorite Disney Princess (90s kid here!) but Mr. Toad is my spirit animal. When I’m not at Disney I’m reading about park history, watching Disney documentaries and shopping vintage Disney merch for park outfits. I never pass up a reservation to Ohana, an empty seat on Living with the Land or a Violet Sake.
