Feasting and Snacking
Contrary to popular belief, we think the food at Walt Disney World is outstanding! And we're no strangers to either a kitchen or a fine restaurant -- we've both worked in the food service industry, had our recipes appear in cookbooks, won culinary awards, and dined in some of the finest restaurants in the U.S. and abroad. We can say with confidence that Walt Disney World's dining smorgasbord is one of the most varied and tasty you'll find around. We've eaten in almost every restaurant in the "World"-- only a small handful of newer restaurants that are out-of-the-way or generally unappealing have escaped our scrutiny.
We've cooked up some helpful tips and hints to help you choose from the overwhelming number of dining options, whether you opt for counter service, full service, character meals, or dinner shows. Check-out the menu of features to the right and dig in!
Oh, a word of warning: We don't suggest you visit this section on an empty stomach, or you may end up booking five meals for one day!
