When it comes to the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks, it’s a food lover’s playground. And while burgers and fries are a theme park staple, there are tons of other types of foods to tempt to your taste buds. For adults who are looking for more than chicken nuggets and French fries, look no further. Disney has got you covered. From Moroccan flavors to Margaritas, there is so much to choose from, you might even forget to check out the theme park attractions!
Here are my top 10 recommendations for the best WDW Park Restaurants for adults. I’ve included casual fare and fine dining favorites. Interested in checking out the resort restaurants? Don’t forget to check out my list of the top 10 best resort restaurants for adults.
10. Yak & Yeti – Located in the Animal Kingdom Theme Park, this is one of the few places in the park to enjoy a non-character table service meal. Serving Asian inspired foods, it offers a nice mix of traditional and fusion style food. Check out the Kobe beef burger and the Shaoxing Steak and Shrimp. If you’re looking for a quieter meal, ask for a seat on the second floor. It’s a great place to recharge in the park. The decor in this restaurant provides a nice backdrop for a meal, as well.
Every single day, on the shore of Echo Lake inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you can see Gertie in all her 1930′s “California Crazy” architectural goodness. She loves to pose for pictures and is very photogenic.
Unfortunately, she is only open seasonally for the business of selling ice cream and treats. Catching her on one of these days can be tricky. Today, however, we got lucky and stumbled on some May 2013 dates and hours of operation for Dinosaur Gertie’s Ice Cream of Extinction!
The following information is subject to change but comes from an extremely reliable “anonymouse” source:
Fear not wine conissouers – Walt Disney World has NOT forgotten about you! It may be a Theme Park with ample child and family friendly activities and restaurants, but there is plenty for us adults to enjoy too!
So if you find that you’re in the mood for a glass or two of vino after a long day of touring the Parks, then I suggest you head to these spots:
Magic Kingdom – Up until just recently, the Magic Kingdom was a “dry” park that didn’t serve any alcohol at all, but with the addition of the Be Our Guest restaurant at the New Fantasyland came a french inspired menu that included cornish game hen, pork chops, and ratatouillie. Along with that menu came a drink menu that includes some truly delicious red and white wines, as well as some classic French beers.
There are some great drink options on the menu, and since it’s a new (popular!) restaurant, you will definitely want to make an ADR to wine and dine here!
