Burgers can be found around pretty much every corner in Walt Disney World Resort. They are served up at the vast majority of Disney Park quick-service restaurants, and most table service restaurants will have at least one burger option for the picky eaters out there.
That said, being Disney food, most of these burgers are going to be pretty similar, and in some cases, the sandwiches are even identical from one eatery to the next. If you’re a burger-lover, this can be disappointing.
Fortunately, there are also some unique and interesting Disney World burgers out there. If you’re looking for a hamburger or cheeseburger that is different enough to mix things up while still giving you that classic burger flavor, this is the article for you. Add the burgers below to your must-try list for your next Disney vacation, add some french fries, and you’re sure to be in burger paradise!
Bison Cheeseburger at Geyser Point Bar and Grill at Wilderness Lodge
Have you ever tried bison? Most people can’t say they have, which is why we recommend heading to the lounge and quick-service eatery called Geyser Point Bar and Grill, located in Wilderness Lodge. Here you can order the Bison Cheeseburger to give the meat a try.
This burger features a thick bison meat burger patty that is absolutely delicious. Yes, bison is a leaner meat, but the burger is still very moist with plenty of flavor.
The toppings on this burger include cheddar cheese, onion straws, lettuce, tomato, garlic aioli, and interestingly, marionberry sauce. We assume that the last sauce is a nod to the Pacific Northwest, where the lodges that were the inspiration for Wilderness Lodge are plentiful. The flavors of these toppings go quite nicely together and with the bison meat, creating a delicious and unique burger that we highly recommend.
Cheeseburger Pods at Satu’li Canteen in Animal Kingdom
Next on our list are the Cheeseburger Pods at Satu’li Canteen in Animal Kingdom. These definitely aren’t your traditional cheeseburger by any stretch, but as strange as they are, they are quite tasty.
Instead of traditional burger buns, each of these pods features a bao bun (a steamed Chinese dumpling) which is filled with ground beef, ketchup, mustard, pickle, and cheddar. We are well aware that this sounds terrible, but trust us when we say these are a thousand times better than the vast majority of the quick service cheeseburgers in the parks.
Not only are these Cheeseburger Pods delicious, but they are also among the most unique burger options on property (and maybe even in the world), so we think they are something every burger fanatic should try while on a Disney vacation.
BBQ Burger at Regal Eagle Smokehouse in Epcot
Hoping to find an interesting burger option in Epcot theme park? Look no further than the Regal Eagle Smokehouse quick service restaurant in the World Showcase. Here, you can order the BBQ Burger for a meaty and delicious meal that burger-lovers are sure to adore.
Now, most of us have had a burger with barbecue sauce, and it is definitely a delicious combination. That said, we wouldn’t consider a simple burger with barbecue sauce unique. No, the BBQ Burger at Regal Eagle stands out for other reasons.
Foremost, the patty is placed not between two burger buns, but between two pieces of deliciously crisp and buttery garlic toast. In addition to that deliciousness, they also top the patty with pulled pork, garlic aioli sauce, and an onion ring. As a finishing touch, add your favorite sauce from the restaurant’s sauce station, and you’ll be good to go and chow down on an amazing burger concoction that is sure to satisfy your craving.
Cheeseburger Spring Rolls at the Spring Roll Cart in Magic Kingdom
We must mention the Cheeseburger Spring Rolls that are served up at the Spring Roll Cart in Adventureland in Magic Kingdom park. Unfortunately, this cart isn’t always open, but when it is, be sure to grab some of these rolls.
Like the Cheeseburger Pods listed above, Cheeseburger Spring Rolls are definitely one of the most unique burger options in the Parks. They are also really delicious, and even have a little-known fan following of their own.
The filling in these rolls is ground beef, cheese, onion, pickle, and some other seasonings. It’s all wrapped up in spring roll wrappers, deep-fried, and served up hot. If you like, you can even ask for the “secret sauce” which is mayo-based and includes a few spices and tiny pickle pieces, and pairs nicely with the spring rolls.
Lobster Thermidor Burger at Grand Floridian Cafe at the Grand Floridian
So far, the restaurants we’ve mentioned have been quick-service spots. What if you want to try a burger at a table service restaurant, though? In this case, we highly recommend a quick trip to the Grand Floridian Resort, where you can enjoy a meal at the Grand Floridian Café and order the incredible Lobster Thermidor Burger.
This seafood burger is made with an artisanal burger patty placed on a toasted sweet brioche bun and topped with Lobster-Parmesan Thermidor sauce. The sauce is rich, creamy, and flavorful, and includes large chunks of lobster that add exactly the right amount of seafood taste. Lastly, the light and crispy Parmesan cracker on top of the lobster adds some wonderful texture.
This burger is a must-try for those who love seafood and burgers, and is not only unique but might just be the best burger on Disney property.
These are our top five unique and yummy burger options in Walt Disney World Resort. Which one will you try first?
