Where We Have Eaten at Disney World and what's on the Agenda for Our Next Trip.


Eating is one of our FAVORITE things to do in Disney. 

Below is a list of all the places we have tried and a list of those on the agenda for our next trips.  Each one is a clickable link that will take you to the Disney Food Blog for a full review and menus for each one.  I am not affiliated with The Disney Food Blog,  I simply believe it is one of the greatest assets for researching places to eat before and during your trip.  

Each restaurant is different and offers very distinct dining experiences.  It is good to know ahead of time what type of cuisine is offered, the prices and the style;  for example buffet, family style, order off the menu or counter service.

We also enjoy The International Food and Wine Festival. You can find a list of all the items we were lucky enough to try in 2013 and 2014 below.
