Our Walt Disney World restaurant reviews will help you book the best ADRs, whether you’re on the Disney Dining Plan or paying out of pocket–these resources will help you choose where to eat at WDW! Each dining review contains details on theme, discounts offered, food photos, and more. (Updated October 16, 2019.)
We most recently refreshed some restaurant reviews in October 2019, but admittedly have a lot more work to do. There are a bunch of new restaurants like Toledo – Tapas, Steak & Seafood, Takumi Tei, Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill, and Ronto Roasters that we’ve yet to review. There are also several favorites we’ve recently revisited for their new menus–including Whispering Canyon Cafe, Plaza Restaurant, Grand Floridian Cafe, D-Luxe Burger, and others.
All of these deserve either new or refreshed reviews, and we’re working towards that. Through the end of 2019, you can expect one new restaurant review per week, plus one or more updated ones.

Since there are literally hundreds of restaurants at Walt Disney World, the choices can be overwhelming. We’ve dined at the majority of Walt Disney World restaurants in the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and these reviews are based on many years of visiting the parks and these restaurants.
In the last couple of years, we’ve started adding a lot more Disney Springs restaurants as the dining scene has dramatically improved there in the last couple of years. In fact, we’d now recommend trying to do multiple meals at Disney Springs. Quite the change from a few years ago, when the only thing worth doing at Disney Springs was Raglan Road!
Our Walt Disney World restaurant reviews are based on cuisine, ambiance, and value for money. We particularly value themed design and atmosphere, as this is primarily where Disney excels over it’s real world counterparts. Obviously, food is also important, and we typically eat at a restaurant at least a couple of times before reviewing it. Nevertheless, quality can vary from one day to the next and menus change frequently.
If there’s one big caveat to these reviews, it’s that Walt Disney World restaurants can be very inconsistent: we may have a horrible meal at a restaurant one night and you may have a fantastic at the same restaurant the next night, or vice-a-versa. This is especially true of service, which is why we don’t factor that into our scores except in certain (noted) circumstances. Due to this inconsistency, we recommend reading a few reviews (not just ours!) of the same restaurant before making a decision on it.
When we started this blog, we only had a handful of reviews, most of which were for Walt Disney World. We started a “Disney Dining Reviews Index” page to organize them all. As we’ve added a lot more Disneyland Resort restaurant reviews plus restaurant reviews from Hong Kong Disneyland, Tokyo Disney Resort, and Disneyland Paris, we’ve realized we need better organization.
This Walt Disney World restaurant-specific page highlights our best WDW restaurant reviews, plus other resources to help you plan your dining options at Walt Disney World. With that said, here are the reviews and food photos from various Walt Disney World restaurants…
As mentioned at the start of the article, these are just a portion of the Walt Disney World restaurants we’ve tried. If you have questions about other restaurants, please leave them in the comments. We haven’t dined everywhere, but we’ll help with advice where we have!
We’ll update this page regularly as we do more Walt Disney World dining reviews. It’s also a good idea to search the menus of different Disney restaurants to see which restaurants might appeal most to your family–given all of the choices, that can be a smart way to narrow things down.
