You Shouldn’t Eat in Magic Kingdom. But If You Do, Go Here.

Magic Kingdom has a lot going for it — but it’s not a perfect park.

We have a little bit of a bone to pick with the mediocre food options at Magic Kingdom. Really, we recommend you head out of Magic Kingdom to one of the monorail resorts for a great meal. But if you do have to eat in Disney World’s flagship park, we have some suggestions.

Here are the places you should be eating in Magic Kingdom!

Table Service

Be Our Guest Restaurant is a pretty good option for Table Service. The food is yummy (try the Grey Stuff, it’s delicious!), and the theming might be the best of any restaurant in Disney World. Still, it’s a little expensive now that Quick Service isn’t an option.

If you’ve got adventurous eaters in your party, you might want to head over to Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen instead. Skipper Canteen has a surprising menu and some pretty hilarious details in the restaurant.

Skipper Canteen is one of the finest dining options for Jungle Cruise travelers!

The other Table Service restaurant that we recommend is Liberty Tree Tavern — but you’ll want to make sure you’re in the mood for this one. It’s hearty, all-you-care-to-enjoy Thanksgiving food. Come hungry!

Quick Service

Quick Service in Magic Kingdom usually means a lot of basics that are only mediocre. Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe has hearty portions of Tex-Mex eats that can really help you fuel up during your park day.

During normal times, Columbia Harbour House serves up a lighter, fish-heavy menu. Right now, Tomorrowland Terrace opens on busier days serving up the Columbia Harbour House menu!

Casey’s Corner might be our favorite restaurant in Magic Kingdom. Hot dogs, fries, and corn dog nuggets reign supreme here. Too bad the spot is still closed at the time of writing!

You can find a few tasty snacks in Magic Kingdom, too! Obviously, we love a Dole Whip from Aloha Isle or a Citrus Swirl from Sunshine Tree Terrace in Adventureland!

The Friar’s Nook in Fantasyland also has some yummy tater tots options. IMO, tater tots are the ultimate snack.

  1. Last time I visited Magic Kingdom, on August 18, 2016, I ate lunch at Pinocchio’s Village Haus in Fantasyland and dinner at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe in Tomorrowland! Those eateries are both quick service restaurants.

  2. The Plazas Restaurant!! I highly recommend it!

    My family ate there on May 5, 2021, just days ago. Three of us are celiac and have to eat gluten free. Sherri, our chef, was wonderful! She made us feel safe, understood, and cherished like family. We ordered the Plaza loaded fries appetizer. They have a dedicated gluten free frier, so very little risk of cross-contamination. It was a little light on the cheese, but we did not mind. For my pickiest eater, Sherri made 2 over-easy eggs, bacon, plain shoe-string french fries, a small side salad, and a fruit cup. For my other celiac kiddo, she made the Main Street Burger on a gluten free bun. He said it was the best burger he had ever had! I had the roast beef au jus and mashed potatoes as my side. Sherri toasted up two gluten free hot dog buns and served up two generous mini hoagies, perfect for dipping in the au jus. It was delicious! 100% worth eating! My husband ordered the Chili-impossible Burger, and said that the way it was seasoned and cooked, he thought it was the real thing. He enjoyed his meal. As a bonus, when we asked, Wei, our waiter, gave a brief Chinese history lesson to my son who is studying it in school right now. Thank you, Wei! The restaurant was bright and cheery and had a great view of Cinderella’s Castle. I highly recommend The Plaza Restaurant. Go there.

  3. Liberty tree tavern! Be our guest! And crystal palace when it was a buffet with the Winnie the poog characters

  4. It’s almost time for me to get up and eat breakfast. I usually have scrambled eggs in the morning. But on Sundays we usually have bacon, sausage, grits, and a jelly biscuit to go with it!!!! Am I making you hungry???????
