We love eating in Disney World, but not everything we try can be a winner.
For every incredible meal we’ve eaten, there have also been some food and drinks we’d probably never try again. We were curious about what our readers think, so we decided to ask you! We asked AllEars readers, “What’s the WORST thing you’ve eaten in Disney World?”
We reached out on Facebook (give us a follow if you want to share your opinions in the future!) and over 700 of you responded to tell us about your experiences with not-so-tasty foods. Let’s get into it!
Regal Eagle Smokehouse
Several readers mentioned the menu at Regal Eagle Smokehouse in EPCOT as one of the worst places to grab a bite to eat in Disney World. Regal Eagle is a fast-casual American BBQ restaurant with dishes such as Memphis Dry-Rub Pork Ribs and Kansas City Half-Smoked Chicken, among several others.
Reader Joseph R. said, “Sadly…. The food at Regal Eagle…. The brisket was super fatty, the rest of the food had almost no flavor,” and reader Megan L. said, “Brisket sandwich at Regal Eagle.” That’s two downvotes for the Sliced Texas Beef Brisket Sandwich!
Some of our readers said the entire menu isn’t good. Reader Ellen H. said, “Everything at the Regal Eagle. It was horrible. (Power Greens Salad with Chicken was awful).” The Power Greens Salad is made with fresh citrus fruit, sunflower seeds, dried cranberries, and radishes in a fresh citrus vinaigrette dressing.
If you’re not a BBQ fan, Regal Eagle may be worth a skip for you. Thankfully, if you’re already in EPCOT, there’s no shortage of food options! If you’re looking for quick service, stop by Yorkshire County Fish Shop for some tasty Fish & Chips, or visit during an EPCOT festival and snack your way around the World Showcase!
Tony’s Town Square Restaurant
Tony’s Town Square Restaurant also received a lot of responses. Tony’s is an Italian restaurant located in Magic Kingdom, and it’s based on the restaurant in Lady and the Tramp.
Reader Michelle Y. said, “It was barely a step up from a Budget Gourmet microwave meal. No one in my family was excited about their meals,” and Katie A. said, “My mom always took us [to Tony’s] every year because I was obsessed with Lady and the Tramp when I was little. A while ago the quality went down bad and we haven’t been back since.”
Several commenters asserted that Tony’s used to be good, but the quality has declined over the last few years. Reader Kelly W. commented, “The food at Tony’s Town Square! It used to be good and somewhere we would eat each trip. We then had 3 bad experiences in a row so we’re done.”
Other AllEars reviewers feel similarly, as Tony’s is rated fairly low compared to other Disney World restaurants. If you’re an Italian fan, you might want to bypass Tony’s and instead try Trattoria al Forno on the BoardWalk or Via Napoli in EPCOT!
The Spring Roll Wagon received a surprising amount of votes! This popular snack spot is located near the entrance of Adventureland in Magic Kingdom, and you can find a variety of flavors such as Cheeseburger or Pastrami.
Reader Eric H. is not a fan. They said, “The spring rolls in Magic Kingdom. Everyone always talks about how good they are and they were disgusting. We threw them away.” Reader Linda K. added, “Cheeseburger Spring Rolls! They didn’t agree with me at all!”
You can get either two spring rolls in one flavor for $9.50 or one of each featured flavor for $9.50. If you’re not in the mood for a deep-fried snack, you could instead visit the nearby Sleepy Hollow for the Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich for another filling option!
Hamburgers are available at many restaurants throughout Disney World, but not all of them are good. And our readers have spoken — some hamburgers are the WORST food they’ve had in Disney World.
Reader Jody A. said, “I’ve never had a good hamburger [in Disney World].” Ouch! And reader Carol D. pointed out a specific burger: “Burger from Backlot Express in HS. Like eating a hockey puck!”
We HAVE found good burgers in Disney World, so they’re not impossible to find! The Stack Burger at Steakhouse 71 is delicious, and the Bison Bacon Cheeseburger from Geyser Point Bar & Grill at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Resort is a popular choice! You may not, however, find the best burgers at many quick service spots around Disney World.
Ah yes, turkey legs. One of the most divisive Disney World snacks. Many of our readers are NOT fans — although we know there are many turkey leg people out there.
To put it simply, reader Ryan D. said, “Turkey leg — it’s nasty,” while Denise M. said, “Turkey leg wasn’t yummy.” Reader Stacy M. made a vow: “Turkey leg. Never again.” With so many other snacks available in Disney World, the turkey leg is not a must-do for everyone.
Pizza was also a popular response! Disney World serves what many people refer to as “puffy pizza,” and if you know good pizza — you’d probably hate it.
Reader Maryann S. said, “Pizza — just the pizza is terrible,” and reader Maryann S. replied, “Yeah, except at Italy in EPCOT, all the pizza is meh.” They have a point! If you want good pizza in Disney World, Via Napoli in EPCOT is an excellent spot to stop for tasty pizza.
