This article lists every restaurant at the Disney Resort Hotels in Orlando, Florida. We’ve included mentions of a few of our favorite locations and photos of some items we’ve tried.
When it comes to a Walt Disney World vacation, countless restaurants await your enjoyment. Since we spend a good deal of our time at the Disney Resort Hotels, we often dine at many of these locations.
Below, we’ve grouped each hotel restaurant by its location and type. We’ve included every quick service restaurant, lounge, pool bar, character meal, and table service restaurant for each resort.
Whether you want a cocktail by the pool or to splurge on the finest dining among the Disney World Hotels, you’ll find the options list below. Additionally, every highlighted entry links to a corresponding review of that restaurant. At the bottom of each hotel’s restaurants, we’ve provided a link to the corresponding resort dining guide. These guides are designed to be a resource of what’s specifically available at your resort.
Disney Hotel Restaurants List
We’ve listed the resorts below by their category. We’ll start with Disney’s Value Resorts.
Each value resort has a food court. These food courts typically have an average of five stations offering specialty food items. Most stations offer a kid’s meal option. Additionally, these resorts have a few food and beverage options at the resort’s feature pool bar. Those locations are also listed.
- World Premiere Food Court
- Silver Screen Spirits Pool Bar
- Intermission Food Court
- Singing Spirits Pool Bar
- End Zone Food Court
- Grand Stand Spirits Food Bar
- Everything Pop Dining
- Petals Pool Bar
During our recent stay at Disney’s Pop Century, I had the teriyaki stir-fry chicken for lunch one day. This delicious option came with chicken, stir-fry vegetables, and rice. I substituted the rice for roasted carrots. We were impressed with the variety of options at the food court.
- Landscape of Flavors
- The Drop-Off Pool Bar
We stayed at Disney’s Art of Animation earlier this year and felt they had several decent options. But, ultimately, the food court doesn’t have near the options it had a few years ago. You can expect breakfast basics like burgers, pizza, and Mickey waffles.
The following list of hotel restaurants is for Disney’s Moderates Resorts. Each of these hotels offers more dining options than the values.
- Barcelona Lounge
- Dahlia Lounge
- Three Bridges Bar and Grill
- Toledo- Tapas, Steak, and Seafood
- Maya Grill
- Cafe Rix
- El Mercado de Coronado
- Siestas Cantina
- Laguna Pool Bar
- Rix Sports Bar and Grill
- Resort Dining Guide: Coronado Springs Restaurant Guide
Coronado Springs used to be one of our favorite resorts for dining. They have excellent options like Toledo, Tapas, Steak, & Seafood and Cafe Rix. But in recent years, the resort’s food court has been mediocre. During our stay this last summer, we felt the quick-service dining options were limited. Thankfully, the club level at Gran Destino Tower provided enough to tie us over when we weren’t dining out.
- Resort Dining Guide: Disney’s Caribbean Beach Restaurants Guide
The restaurant scene at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort has greatly improved since our last stay. When we visited to check out the new rooms, we enjoyed several meals at the resort’s quick service, Centertown Market.
- Trail’s End Restaurant
- The Chuck Wagon
- P and J’s Southern Takeout
- Meadow Take Out
- Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue
- Crockett’s Tavern
Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue is one of the few remaining dinner shows at Walt Disney World. It’s offered three times a night on most evenings, and reservations fill up quickly. Additionally, Trail’s End reopened this last year. We plan to visit this location soon for an updated review.
- Boatwright’s Dining Hall
- Riverside Mill Food Court
- River Roost
- Muddy Rivers
- Resort Dining Guide: Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside Restaurants Guide
Riverside Mill Food Court has several nice entree selections. On our last visit, I tried the shrimp and grits, which was enough to split with someone. They were freshly prepared in front of us. Unfortunately, I’ve never dined at Boatwright’s Dining Hall. With so many excellent dining options at Disney Springs, we tend to eat there when we stay in this neck of the woods.
- Resort Dining Guide: Disney’s Port Orleans French Quarter Restaurants
Port Orleans French Quarter is widely known for one thing: beignets. Sorry, I meant Mickey-shaped beignets. You can enjoy them for breakfast, lunch, or dinner with whatever dipping sauce your heart desires. Enjoy!
Lastly, we have a list of restaurants at Disney’s Deluxe Resorts.
- Grand Floridian Cafe
- Enchanted Rose
- Gasparilla Island Grill
- Beaches Pool Bar and Grill
- Courtyard Pool Bar
- 1900 Park Fare
- Garden View Tea Room (closed)
- Victoria and Alberts
- Resort Dining Guide: Grand Floridian Restaurant Guide
Victoria and Alberts is the most exclusive restaurant at the Walt Disney World. A meal here will cost you a pretty penny.
- Barefoot Pool Bar
- Capt. Cook’s
- Pineapple Lanai
- Kona Cafe
- Tambu Lounge
- Oasis Bar and Grill
- Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto
- Trader Sam’s Tiki Terrace
- Kona Island
- Disney’s Spirit of Aloha (Permanently Closed)
- Resort Dining Guide: Disney’s Polynesian Restaurants List
‘Ohana is one of the most popular restaurants at Disney World. However, on our last visit, we thought the meal was just okay. We often hear that it can be hit or miss, and that can be a pricy miss. We love Capt. Cook’s the resort’s quick service and find that it often fits the bill when dining at the Polynesian. During our last stay at the Polynesian, we stayed at the resort’s Kamehameha club level and enjoyed most of our meals in the lounge.
- California Grill
- California Grill Lounge
- Outer Rim
- Steakhouse 71
- Contempo Cafe
- Sand Bar
- Cove Bar
- Contemporary Grounds
- Resort Dining Guide: Contemporary Resort Dining Options
We love most of the dining options at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Contempo Cafe is one of the best quick-service restaurants among the Disney Resorts.
As for California Grill, it was our favorite restaurant at Disney World for some time. Unfortunately, the experience has changed to a prix fixe menu in recent years, and we don’t think the value is there. California Grill is a place where we wanted to splurge on things we enjoyed, like sushi, dessert, and that delicious Sonoma goat cheese ravioli. But now, the menu feels confined, and no one likes restrictions when it’s time to dine.
We also dine at Steakhouse 71 often. It’s hard to go wrong with this semi-casual table service restaurant.
- Beaches and Cream Soda Shop
- Beach Club Marketplace
- Martha’s Vineyard
- Cape May Cafe
- Hurricane Hanna’s Waterside Bar and Grill
Beaches and Cream is a diner-style location with various burgers, sandwiches, and loads of ice cream options. This is where you can order the popular kitchen sink ice cream sundae that feeds a multitude. If you’re looking for a guilty pleasure, this is it.
Unfortunately, the entree items at Beach Club Marketplace, the resort’s quick service, are lacking. We rarely purchase anything here unless we’re picking up a snack. They do have an excellent selection of treats like the brownie listed below.
Cape May Cafe is home to Minnie’s Beach Bash, a character breakfast. In the evening, the restaurant has a seafood buffet. We’ve enjoyed this breakfast with characters, but it’s the same as most character meals, where the focus is on the characters, and the food is decent but fairly generic.
- Ale and Compass Restaurant
- Ale and Compass Lounge
- The Market at Ale and Compass
- Yachtsman Steakhouse
- Crew’s Cup Lounge
Like Beach Club, we don’t care about the quick service at Disney’s Yacht Club. However, we dine at Ale and Compass more than any other restaurant at Walt Disney World. It’s hard to go wrong here for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. You can place a mobile order if you prefer to dine in your room or at the pool.
Additionally, Crew’s Cup Lounge is an excellent place to enjoy dinner. The prime rib sliders have recently returned and are one of our favorites! This location also has excellent soup and salad. Or, if you want to splurge on a steak, Yachtsman Steakhouse is fantastic.
- Flying Fish
- Big River Grille and Brewing Works (Permanently Closed)
- Trattoria al Forno
- Carousel Coffee
- Boardwalk Deli
- Boardwalk Joe’s Marvelous Margaritas
- Funnel Cake Cart
- Pizza Window
- Belle Vue Lounge
- Leaping Horse Libations
- Boardwalk Ice Cream
- The Cake Bake Shop by Gwendolyn Rogers (Coming Soon Maybe?)
- Blue Ribbon Hot Dogs (Coming Soon)
Resort Dining Guide: The Restaurants at Disney’s Boardwalk
On paper, Disney’s Boardwalk appears to have a sufficient number of dining options. But we think the quick service options are not up to par considering the busy location. Flying Fish, the resort’s signature restaurant, gets consistent rave reviews. It’s a lifesaver for the area. A couple of new locations are supposed to open in 2024. Time will tell.
- Shula’s Steakhouse
- Rosa Mexicano
- Il Mulino
- Todd English’s bluezoo
- Garden Grove
- The Fountain
- Cabana Bar and Beach Club
- Splash Pool Bar and Grill
- Grounds at the Swan Reserve
- Amare (Swan Reserve)
Resort Dining Guide: Swan and Dolphin Restaurants Guide
Disney’s Swan, Dolphin, and the Swan Reserve have so many dining options. We particularly enjoy Shula’s Steakhouse, Amare, and Rosa Mexicano.
- Sanaa Lounge
- The Mara
- Boma, Flavors of Africa
- Jiko, The Cooking Place
- Victoria Falls Lounge
- Capetown Lounge and Wine Bar
- Maji Pool Bar
- Uzima Springs Pool Bar
- Resort Dining Guide: Animal Kingdom Lodge Restaurant Guide
Animal Kingdom Lodge immediately comes to mind when someone asks which resort has the best dining. We love everything here, from The Mara and Sanaa to Jiko and Boma. For breakfast, the buffet at Boma is incredible. For lunch or dinner, you can’t go wrong with Sanaa. Jiko, The Cooking Place could easily be that one restaurant where you splurge on an expensive meal.
- Storybook Dining at Artist Point
- Whispering Canyon Cafe
- Geyser Point Bar and Grill
- Roaring Fork
- Territory Lounge
Disney’s Wilderness Lodge is another excellent place to enjoy a meal. We prefer to go casual here and get a walk-up at either Geyser Point Bar and Grill or Territory Lounge.
Finally, we’ll discuss the restaurants at the Disney Vacation Club Resorts.
- Bar Riva
- Topolino’s Terrace, Flavors of the Riviera
- Le Petit Cafe
- Primo Piatto
My other top choice for dining when it comes to resorts is Disney’s Riviera Resort. Primo Piatto is our favorite quick service at Walt Disney World. It’s an upscale counter service with quality food and reasonable prices. We also enjoy dining at Bar Riva. They have several quality dishes and don’t require a reservation.
- The Artist’s Palette
- The Paddock Grill
- The Turf Club Bar and Grill
- The Turf Club Lounge
- On the Rocks
- Backstretch Pool Bar
Related Dining Guide: Disney’s Saratoga Springs Restaurant List
The Artist’s Palette is another excellent quick service at Disney World. This restaurant has pizza, sandwiches, and even a roasted half chicken with veggies. If I’m at Saratoga Springs, I’ll almost always stop here for a quick meal. I’ve eaten here 3-4 times in the last year alone, and that says a lot considering the resort’s proximity to Disney Springs.
- Olivia’s Cafe
- Good’s Food To Go
- Turtle Shack Poolside Snacks
- Gurgling Suitcase Libations and Spirits
If you stay at Old Key West, you’re only a boat ride from Disney Springs. Unfortunately, this charming resort doesn’t have a ton of dining. But Olivia’s Cafe tends to make up for that. We love to enjoy a meal here, especially when the weather is pleasant enough to dine on the patio.
