We bet they will with this dining spot’s iconic Kitchen Sink dessert!

9. Teppan Edo - Located at the World Showcase’s Japan pavilion, Teppan Edo offers something different: a cultural meal and entertainment! At this restaurant, you get to watch your food being prepared in a fun and interesting way by a hibachi chef! This spot definitely shouldn’t be a disappointment for a teen who likes this type of menu and who is looking for a good time.

8. Boma – You can find Boma at the Disney Animal Kingdom Lodge. One of the main things you will notice at Boma is the FLAVOR! The food is a fusion of Asian, African, Indian, and Asian. While more popular with an older crowd Teens are going to love the variety.

7. Via Napoli – The new Epcot area resort puts a new spin on Pizza. Cooked in wood fire oven loaded with fresh toppings this is one place your gonna LOVE. Be sure to try the Arancici!

6. Disney’s Spirit of Aloha Dinner-Looking for more entertainment? At this show, located at the Polynesian Resort, teens will feel like they are actually in Hawaii at this Hawaiian luau!

3. 50s Prime Time Cafe-This restaurant is all about the experience. When you step inside, you are transported back in time to the 50s as you dine in replicas of retro kitchens and as your servers wish to be referred to as family. They also treat you like family; and if you don’t behave, you may suffer the consequences! Teens will get a kick out of their parents getting a taste of their own medicine, along with getting to experience family life from decades prior. The food and desserts are pretty cool too.

2. Ghiradelli Ice Cream and Chocolate Shop-This soda fountain is famous for its sweet treats and combinations made with that famous Ghiradelli chocolate!

1. Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater-This restaurant is also about the experience as when you visit, you will truly feel as if you’re outside at sunset at an old drive-in! Most guests get the chance to dine in an old fashioned car parked in front of a giant screen which displays clips of cheesy old monster flicks and even those concession stand ads! If this wasn’t enough to entertain any teen, the menu here consists of tasty burgers, onion rings, and milkshakes.
