Guests love the immersive experiences they have at the Walt Disney World Resort. It brings us back trip after trip and creates Disney fans and foodies alike. Some of our favorite memories take place at Disney Table Service restaurants, thanks to the creative theming and menu options.

Table service restaurants offer a unique dining experience where Guests can sit down and relax while enjoying a delicious meal with family and friends. The restaurants often have a sit-down waitstaff and a menu that features a variety of cuisines to suit every taste. Table Service dining locations in the theme Parks, Disney Resort hotels, and Disney Springs allow for restful meals within the busy environment of the Walt Disney World Resort.

About Megan Losey

As a Disney foodie, I love writing about Disney food and snacks. Some of my favorites are the Carrot Cake Cookie from Trolley Car Cafe, the Mickey Beignets from Port Orleans French Quarter, and the Apple Blossom from Port Orleans Riverside. When I'm visiting the parks, you can find me on Main Street taking in the good vibe of Magic Kingdom or relaxing with a drink at the Polynesian watching the fireworks from the beach. As a previous Cast Member, I will always have a special place in my heart for the Magic Kingdom, especially Main Street U.S.A.
