PassPorter’s popular capsule reviews cover all table-service restaurants, as well as counter-service eateries at the parks. Our reviews include all important details, plus ratings. Below is a key to our eatery charts. Dig in!



Description Key

Eatery Name [D-22] (Bar Color3) B $, L $, D $, S4

Description offering an overview of the eatery, including comments on the theming, quality, and menu range. We try to give you an idea of what sort of foods you’ll find at a particular eatery, along with typical prices and our recommendations. We also include information on the availability of lighter fare, children’s meals, and alcoholic beverages. Whenever possible, we describe the type of seating (tables, booths, etc.) and whether it is indoor or outdoor Type8

1 Each chart has an empty checkbox in the upper left corner—use it to check off the eateries that interest you (before you go) or those at which you ate (after your return).

2 Map coordinates—match them up to park maps in “Touring the ‘World’” for locations.

3 The bar color indicates the eatery’s main draw, as follows:

4 Meals are indicated by letters: B (breakfast), L (lunch), D (dinner), and S (snack). The dollar figures that follow each meal type represent the average cost of a full adult meal. Table-service meal costs include appetizer, entree, dessert, soft drink, tax, and 18% tip. Average counter-service meal costs include entree, dessert, soft drink, and tax.

5 The “DDP” symbol indicates that an eatery participates in the Disney Dining Plan (see page 223). Note that the eateries are subject to change at any time—check with Disney before making plans. The color and letter in the lower right corner shows the type of Dining Plan eatery: blue “S” is snack, red “Q” is quick service (counter service), purple “T” is table service, and gold “2” is signature (because a Signature eatery requires two table-service credits). Verify participation at 407-WDW-DINE.

6 Eateries with a reasonable selection of healthy items (low-fat/low-sodium/low-calorie) are indicated with a tape measure symbol. These are also friendly to weight watchers!

7 The three white boxes on the right show ratings on a scale of 1 (poor) to 10 (loved it!). The first rating is Jennifer’s, the second is Dave’s, and the third is our Readers’ rating. We offer our personal ratings to show how opinions vary, even between two like-minded people. You can also use our ratings as a point of reference—Jennifer likes eateries with extensive theming and well-prepared foods that aren’t too exotic or spicy. Dave has more cultured tastes, enjoys unusual, spicy, and barbecue dishes, and loves seafood!

8 The boxes on the right beneath the numeric ratings give basic information: eatery type (Table, Counter, or Buffet), cuisine, noise factor (from quiet to very noisy), seating (if reservations are accepted, needed, suggested, recommended, or required, and how many days in advance you can call), average wait time, and the eatery’s hours.
