Unique Dining Experiences In Disney World

Travel - Travel Tips

Introduction:

Disney World is full of fun and unique experiences, so why would their dining options be any different? If you are looking for something a bit out of the ordinary than your typical theme park dining experience, try out one (or all!) of these over-the-top themed locations for a memorable experience you'll never forget.

Cinderella's Royal Table - Magic Kingdom

The iconic symbol of Disney World, Cinderella's castle is what children's dreams are made of. Inside, guests will find a restaurant that serves up dishes fit for Disney's favorite princess and all of her most special guests. Not only will diners be treated to a royal feast, they will do so from one of the best vantage points in the park. Located upstairs in a fairy-tale style atmosphere, Cinderella's Royal Table is as suitable for a romantic dinner as it is a family gathering. This is one dining experience not to be missed.

Biergarten - Epcot

If it weren't for the princess appeal of Cinderella's castle, Biergarten would be the number one unique restaurant, as well as having the most bang for your buck. This buffet located in the German pavilion of Epcot's World Showcase offers food, fun, and entertainment at a moderate price. This is one of the most expansive offerings of food in the parks, and it's all exquisite. Traditional German fare is paired with authentic Deutsch entertainment - a band of traditionally dressed musicians playing a variety of horns and wind instruments. Just be prepared to dine with people you don't know if you have a party of less than six.

Ohana - Disney's Polynesian Resort

This unique, Hawaiian-themed restaurant serves up memorable dining experiences for both breakfast and dinner, but it's the dinner experience that will leave guests with lasting memories of "ohana" or family. While it is a bit pricey, this restaurant offers unlimited food as your servers present you with various meats (sausage, shrimp, chicken, pork) that they deliver on a cooking skewer. Distinctly Hawaiian fare set this restaurant apart; what sets it above the rest is the "Big Kahuna," Ohana's very own ukelele-playing, story-telling MC of the night. In addition to hosting hula-hooping contests and other games, the Big Kahuna greets each table like family, offering a warm welcome to one of the most welcoming dining experiences in the park.

Sci Fi Dine-In Theater - Disney's Hollywood Studios

This restaurant will be a favorite for adults who remember the old drive-in theaters and 'B' science fiction movies of the past. The earlier you make your dining reservations the better because the old fashioned car tables (complete with car hop to take your order) fill up fast; overflow seating is located in the back at flying saucer tables which aren't nearly as fun. Although the food is only mediocre, where else can you watch old 'B' movie trailers from the comfort of your car?

Coral Reef Restaurant - Epcot

This restaurant is located in The Seas section of Epcot, and is a must-see for the sea-lover. The walls of the restaurant are actually an aquarium, housing a number of fish and small sharks that swim effortlessly past as you dine. Not all of the tables are located directly near an aquarium wall, so make sure to request an aquarium side table when making advance reservations. Although better seafood restaurants exist throughout Disney World, the experience of dining alongside sea creatures is not to be missed.




Final Thoughts

These are the best of the best in unique restaurants, but I left out many of the special dining experiences offered throughout Disney. Be sure to check out special dining arrangements for couples, luaus, and the chance to dine with an imagineer. You can find more information on any of these experiences, as well as the restaurants above, on the Walt Disney World website under the dining tab. Enjoy making the most of these unique memories!
