BEST DISNEY WORLD RESTAURANTS

FLYING FISH – BROADWALK

Flying Fish is a Signature Restaurant located on the Boardwalk in the Crescent Lake area of Disney World Resort. The designation of Signature Restaurant indicates a fine dining experience, and if you have the Disney Dining Plan, will require 2 Table Service credits.

If you are looking for a superb dinner in an elegant setting, then Flying Fish is the right choice for you. While children are always welcome, Flying Fish is one of the many great places for adults at Disney World.

Two of my favourite features of the restaurant are the open kitchen and the beautiful chandeliers of glass fish swimming overhead. The open kitchen allows you to watch the chefs as they perform their magic, while the quirky light fixture helps to set the scene.

Don’t be deceived by the name, Flying Fish offers more than just great seafood. For example, the Kurobuta Pork Belly appetizer is melt in your mouth delicious. In addition to a wide variety of seafood options, you will find three different cuts of beef as well as chicken on the menu.

No matter what you order at Flying Fish, you really can’t go wrong!

YAK & YETI – ANIMAL KINGDOM

I think the best part about visiting Disneyworld, other than the attractions is the food. You can literally eat your way around the world during your visit. One of our favourite restaurants there is Yak and Yeti, which is located in the Animal Kingdom. Yak & Yeti is a restaurant and quick-service eatery featuring delicious Pan-Asian cuisine. You can indulge with a sampling of some of Asia’s yummy cuisine. Some of our favourites were the Chicken Tikka Masala and the Korean BBQ Ribs, they were so delicious!

They also offer some kid-approved choices on their Kids menu. Our little one loved the chicken fried rice which comes with two sides. Make reservations ahead of time on the Disney My experience app, to avoid the long wait times. It’s one of the more popular restaurants in Animal kingdom and the lines and wait times are usually very long.

50’S PRIME TIME CAFE – DISNEY’S HOLLYWOOD STUDIO 

The 50’s Prime Time Cafe is a diner in Disney’s Hollywood Studios infamous for its curt wait staff. Eating here is like eating at your grandmother’s house, complete with juicy meatloaf and a high chance you’ll be scolded to eat all your vegetables. You can have a “TV dinner” where you watch black and white clips at your table. This pairs nicely with the idea behind the park in general.

Hollywood studios proudly honour fan favourites like “I Love Lucy” and “The Twilight Zone.” The theme of the diner is old-fashioned, with the venue decorated like a vintage kitchen and dining room, tacky wallpaper and all. Guests can enjoy classic dishes like fried chicken and apple pie a la mode. This is a great place to come if you’re looking for comfort food that hits the spot and a different sort of customer service experience.
