Not every meal has to be a fancy, extravagant affair at an upscale restaurant.
Sometimes it’s nice to enjoy a buffet dinner, especially after a long day in the parks.
We understand the feeling when it’s just too much to even have to look at a menu and decide what to eat! Buffets are a great option when you aren’t entirely sure what you’re in the mood for because you can just figure it out once you get there. Plus, if you are a large group with a variety of tastes, buffets are an easy solution. Read below for information about every single buffet location at Disney World!
