The best restaurants in Walt Disney World you need to book NOW!

In the times we have visited Walt Disney World we've gathered quite a list of restaurants we love to visit. There are restaurants that require booking way ahead of time, and some that you can just walk up to but I believe it's still better to book ahead of time. Booking your restaurants helps you to plan your holiday as well as knowing what you'll be eating that day. Using our list of favourites here's a few of the best restaurants you should book NOW.



California Grill

The Best Restaurants In Walt Disney World You Need To Book Now | The California Grill on top of Contemporary Resort is amazing and has great views!


You can find this restaurant on top of Contemporary resort, it has a wonderful view over Magic Kingdom and if you book for the evening around the time of the Fireworks display at Magic Kingdom you can sit and watch the show while enjoying your meal. They even play the Fireworks show's music in the restaurant.





Eating good food is my favourite thing in the whole world. Nothing is more blissful.

You should definitely try the halibut!


The food at California Grill is AMAZING! It's a great place to try something new because the food is so good I don't think there's anything you won't like. The desserts are both delicious and spectacular to look at. And the boys love it too - there's great choices for the kids, being both special but kid-friendly. Like the candy sushi LP had a few years ago!

Sanaa

A gorgeous view through the windows at Sanaa.


As British people we love curry don't we?

Sanaa is a place you can find curry in Walt Disney World - but it's not like the curry we know in the UK. You get to choose three options for your main which means you get to enjoy three different things at once! There's curry options like Butter Chicken or Braised Beef, and you can try out the Aloo Masala (which is SO good), as well as other options, and of course there's rice.

Sit inside an African inspired decorated restaurant and look out onto the beautiful Savannah where you can watch birds, zebra, and more wander around. The staff are helpful and friendly and always welcoming.

Shortbread chocolate sandwich with raspberries - delicious!


We love Sanaa so much that we visited three times during our trip in Summer 2018!



Narcoossee's

The Best Restaurants In Walt Disney World You Need To Book Now | Narcoossee's looks beautiful all lit up at night!


If you like seafood Narcoossee's is for you. Lobster, halibut, and salmon as well as steak and sometimes even pork chops, can be found on the menu and they're all divine. One of the more expensive restaurants in Walt Disney World Narcoossee's has fantastic food, exceptional service, and a beautiful view over a lake.

The steak is amazing, and - while it doesn't look it - very filling.


The kids are welcomed at Narcoossee's too - there's always a great kids' activity sheet to keep them busy and the choices are great.

Desserts are delicious and sometimes even entertaining! Hubby had a chocolate slice once and the decoration was brilliant - quite the talking point.

Parfait covered in almonds - SO good.



Tepan Edo

The Best Restaurants In Walt Disney World You Need To Book Now | The Chef at Tepan Edo cooking our food - very entertaining.
Watch your food being cooked right in front of you.


Sushi, noodles, and steak is on the menu at Tepan Edo, and it's all cooked right in front of you by a talented chef. Be entertained by knife throwing, say hello to Mickey, and watch your chef create a volcano out of onions!

Speaking of volcanos, don't forget to try the Volcano Rolls...

The Best Restaurants In Walt Disney World You Need To Book Now | Volcano Rolls at Tepan Edo are AMAZING!
My favourite starter by far - Volcano Rolls.


Not only is Tepan Edo entertaining but the food is good too. If you like sushi you HAVE to try Volcano Rolls which are SO good, but there's also chicken, steak, and prawns to choose from to go with your noodles. There's always plenty of soy sauce on hand for dipping but there's also 3 different sauces to go with your meals and they're all good too.

Steak, prawns, and noodles - my favourite!


Adults can try out cocktails - which are refreshing - and there's plenty of choice for the kids.



Biergarten

The Best Restaurants In Walt Disney World You Need To Book Now | Biergarten is a brilliant entertaining buffet meal!


In Germany in Epcot Biergarten is a great place to get some time out of the sun and enjoy some traditional german cuisine.





Food is not just eating energy. It's an experience.

Guy Fieri





A buffet selection, which means you can eat as much as you like (!), including traditional sausage, potatoes, and Sauerkraut as well as Schnitzel and assorted desserts. Adults can enjoy an alcoholic beverage - whether wine or beer - and soft drinks are on hand for the kids. But there's something a little different about Biergarten too - the entertainment.

Watch Oktoberfest celebrations and sing or dance along as you're entertained.



STK Orlando


Situated in Disney Springs this restaurant was added to our favourites list last summer (2018). We happened to visit because we'd walked past and were able to get a booking at the last minute, which immediately resulted in us booking again!

Of course you can have some delicious steak at STK Orlando but I would recommend trying the Grilled Octopus - we tried it out just as a test really and it was divine. Even the kids liked it! One of the best restaurants we've been to in all of Walt Disney World and definitely one we'll be returning to.

The Best Restaurants In Walt Disney World You Need To Book Now | STK Orlando was brilliant - the steak was cooked to perfection and we'll be back.
Medium rare steak - Yum!


Steak isn't the only thing on the menu, you can choose seafood - which is good too - and even chicken.

The decor is both odd and mesmerising and the music was entertaining. The Hubby and I sat down and sang along to songs we'd not heard in years - it certainly took us back, and made us smile. If you grew up in the 80s/90s you'd definitely enjoy the music selection!

These are just a few of our favourites, but there's also The Edison located at Disney Springs, Boma at Animal Kingdom Lodge, and Via Napoli in Italy at Epcot.

I'd highly recommend booking these restaurants ahead of time, they do get booked up and it's better to book than be disappointed!
