The Best Table Service Restaurants at Disney World: A Foodie’s Guide to Disney World

While Disney is often known for its attractions, shows, and characters, for us—and many others—it's the food that truly steals the show! Some of our most cherished Disney memories revolve around the incredible meals and snacks we've savored during our countless trips to Disney World. If you're seeking the best table service restaurants at Disney World, look no further than our curated list of favorites below. From an enchanting dinner in Beast’s castle to charred octopus in Animal Kingdom, get ready for a culinary adventure that's as magical as it is delicious!

Be Our Guest

Fantasyland, Magic Kingdom

Be Our Guest, located in Beast’s enchanted castle in Magic Kingdom, is an enchanting dining experience straight out of a fairy tale. However the $70/adult or $41/child pre-fixe menu left us with mixed feelings. While the food, including a rich French Onion Soup, Charcuterie platter, perfectly cooked Filet Mignon, and Sea Scallops, was delicious, the crowded and rushed atmosphere made it feel less intimate. Especially compared to other Disney dining experiences, Be Our Guest felt a bit lacking in personal touch for the price point.

We loved indulging in the dessert trio including the Grey Stuff, a Dark Chocolate Truffle, and a Lemon Jam Macaron.

While Be Our Guest is a unique experience within Beast’s enchanted castle, the trade-off between the immersive setting and a more personal dining atmosphere is something to consider when planning your dining experiences at Disney World. Although Be Our Guest may not be our top choice, it certainly captures the enchanting charm of Beauty and the Beast, making it a must-visit for fans of the classic Disney tale.

Cinderella’s Royal Table

Fantasyland, Magic Kingdom

Dining at Cinderella's Royal Table is a magical experience that you won’t want to miss during your Disney trip. We recommend experiencing it at least once, especially with kids. We recommend booking a reservation for breakfast, priced at $69/adult and $42/child, for a chance to dine inside the iconic Cinderella’s Castle itself.

Since this is a character dining experience, be prepared to meet Disney princesses during your meal, adding a touch of magic to your dining experience. While you wait for your table, make sure to explore inside the castle as much as you can!

Indulge in a spread of assorted breakfast pastries for the table including moist blueberry Mickey muffins, flaky croissants and chocolate croissants before diving into your entrees.

We recommend the perfectly cooked Steak and Eggs served with broccolini and a Boursin cheese sauce or the delicious Shrimp and Grits with a tomato jam, fried eggs, and a garlic baguette. While it’s a bit pricey, the attention to detail and magic of dining inside Cinderella’s castle make it a memorable experience for any Disney lover visiting Magic Kingdom.

Grand Floridian Café

Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa

The Grand Floridian Café is all about elegance and charm. It's our go-to spot for a relaxing breakfast that kicks off our Disney resort days just right. With its Victorian-style ambiance and friendly staff, it feels like stepping back into old Florida. Breakfast begins with fresh biscuits served with a delicious orange butter.

Mickey waffles are a must, of course, but the Steak and Eggs with their signature cheesy hash brown casserole is Max’s personal favorite.
