A guide to where we dined while at Disney World!
Grand Floridian’s Garden View Tea Room
For as low as $30/person, you can enjoy three courses of tea. That includes one pot of tea. a variety of sandwiches and fruit, scone, tart and dessert. We went around 4:30pm thinking we’d be hungry again around 7pm for dinner. Nope. This three course tea is REALLY filling. We were absolutely stuffed even before the dessert course! It was worth every penny to enjoy some quality time talking while eating fun foods. Just be sure to make reservations!
The Magic Kingdom
I admit it, we basically just ate sweets here. With breakfast donuts and coffee the size of our heads, Dole Whip, Mickey Ice Cream and The All American Sundae, we were stuffed! We mainly came to The Magic Kingdom for the magic and sugar.
We ended up being at Hollywood Studios for only a matter of hours. Luckily, it was around lunch time where we split a burger, over-salted green beans and french fries at The ABC Commissary. Then, we followed up a just okay lunch with this amazing chocolate peanut butter Darth Vader cupcake. After a quick latte refill at Starbucks we were onto the next park!
Epcot is one of my favorite places for food. The World Showcase alone has some pretty special treats! First up was gelato in Italy (I’ve had much better gelato in Charleston…kind of disappointed with that cone), pizza at Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria (amazing!) and another coffee.
Our final meal at Epcot was at The Coral Reef. It’s one of my favorite restaurants with the entire wall of aquarium to gaze at. Plus, the food is great! My favorite thing to do is to book the latest reservation possible at The Coral Reef (or any Epcot restaurant), then you are literally the last person in the park, sometimes even escorted out by cast members. It’s magical to see the park so empty and lit up. Perfect time for some photographs on your walk out of the park!
We made a quick trip to Animal Kingdom (mainly to ride Everest and experience It’s Tough to be a Bug. But, along the way we had a Mickey Popsicle and a delicious Teriyaki Beef Bowl at Yak and Yeti Local Foods Cafe. I was bummed to see that they got rid of the shrimp lo-main they used to carry there. It was AMAZING!
