The Five Best Meals Money Can Buy at Walt Disney World

Credit: DisneyDining.com

Each Walt Disney World restaurant goes out of its way to make dining more than just a meal, it should be an experience. There are world class chefs, highly trained staff members, and unique atmospheres. The places listed here are some of the best. The food is exquisite, and they are known for their ambiance as well. I tried to include a variety of options, so that everyone will find a new must try restaurant or dish.

5) Le Cellier Steakhouse

Canada Pavilion, World Showcase, Epcot

You just might find the best steak of your life in the middle of a theme park. Start your meal with a bowl of Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup. Arguably the best entree here is Le Cellier Mushroom Filet Mignon. Order the Le Cellier Poutine Fries on the side, they come with cheese, black truffle, and red wine reduction. The Maple Creme Brulee is a perfect ending to a perfect meal. Le Cellier Steakhouse has a selection of Canadian wines, as well as specialty drinks and other beverages. While the food is five star, the atmosphere is simple, the restaurant is designed to resemble a Canadian wine cellar. You will want to make your reservation as soon as you can, on busy days it will often fill up at the 180 day mark.

4) Chef Mickey’s

Disney’s Contemporary Resort

A different type of dining experience awaits you at Chef Mickey’s. What makes this meal special isn’t only the food, it’s the invited guests. Chef Mickey’s offers character dining at breakfast and dinner. It is the only character meal where you’ll be able to meet the “Fab Five”; Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald, and Pluto. While Walt Disney World reserves the right to change characters at any time, there is little chance that things will change at Chef Mickey’s in the near future. The all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet features eggs, breakfast meats, cereals, waffles, bakery items, and more. Dinner is also a buffet, and you can fill up on salads, carved meats, chicken, lobster mac & cheese, ribs, eggplant, and plenty of other delicious treats. There are tasty sweet endings available for your dinner as well. After you’re finished, walk or take the monorail to the Magic Kingdom. Chef Mickey’s is one of the more popular character meals, reservations fill up quickly.

3) ‘Ohana

Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort

Breakfast here is a character meal with Lilo & Stitch, but it’s dinner that caused this incredible restaurant to make the list. While there are no characters at the evening meal, it’s still a lot of fun. Guests at the Hawaiian themed restaurant will play games and enjoy stories, and then it’s time for the food. Your meal will start with ‘Ohana Pineapple-Coconut Bread and a mixed salad. Pork dumplings and chicken wings are served as appetizers. Then skewers of flame cooked meat are brought to your table. You’ll enjoy shrimp, sweet-and-sour chicken, and steak. Noodles and vegetables are served on the side. Vegetarians, don’t stay away, just let them know when you check in and you’ll be served a meatless alternative that you’ll be talking about for a long time. Although the food is all-you-can-eat, save some room. Dessert is ‘Ohana Bread Pudding a la mode with Bananas-Caramel Sauce. It is arguably the best dessert that you will find at Walt Disney World. ‘Ohana allows guests to let loose and have a great time while they enjoy astounding food. There is a reason why the dinner is a favorite of tourists and locals alike.

2) Flying Fish Cafe – Chef’s Tasting Wine Dinner

Disney’s BoardWalk

The Chef’s Tasting Wine Dinner will be different each time you experience it, because the chef will use only the freshest ingredients. You’ll sit at the chef’s counter and enjoy five courses, with their wine pairings. You will watch as the dishes are prepared, and then you can speak directly to the chef about the food and the wine that goes with it. Spots are limited to six each meal, so you’ll want to make your reservation well in advance. All guests must be at least ten years old, and there is a dress code. For those under 21 and those who choose not to drink, alternative beverages are available.

1) Victoria & Albert’s Chef’s Table Dinner

Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa

Have a few hours to spare for dinner? Spend them at a AAA Five Diamond Restaurant. Victoria & Albert’s offers three different dining experiences; Dining Room, Queen Victoria’s Room, and Chef’s Table. Chef’s Table is the best of the best. You and your party will enjoy ten courses. The food differs each night, because the evening begins with a conversation with the chef. He will talk to your party about your likes and dislikes, and then will create the most incredible meal of your life. Children under ten are not allowed, and there is a dress code. The best meal at Walt Disney World is also the most expensive. Victoria & Albert’s Chef’s Table Dinner will cost at least $250 per guest, with wine pairings adding an additional $105 per person.






About PaulaK

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
