Magic Kingdom

From cheeseburger spring rolls to Mickey-shaped pretzels, many guests have favorite snacks that they swear by in the park, but what about dinner? Magic Kingdom has tons of options to choose from, and that’s why we’re listening to YOU, our loyal readers, to find and rank the BEST dinner at Magic Kingdom. Let’s dive in!

Best Magic Kingdom Table Service Dinner

Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace, a restaurant on Main Street U.S.A., is set in a Victorian-era conservatory with high ceilings, hanging plants, and stained glass windows. Here you’ll find an all-you-care-to-eat buffet for breakfast, lunch, and dinner where you can meet characters from Winnie the Pooh.

At this location,  Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore, and Piglet visit guests at their table as they dine on American classics with favorites like Shrimp and Crab Claw with Cocktail Sauce, a loaded Tater Tot station, Carved Prime Rib, Strawberry Shortcake, Cobbler, and more. Pro tip: ask for a seat by a window so you can catch a glimpse of the Main Street parades or Magic Kingdom fireworks.

Some classic dishes at this spot include Calamari and Spaghetti with Meatballs (for obvious reasons). While the food hasn’t impressed us much over the years, you can’t beat the location! If you get a patio table, you’ll have a great view of the parade!

Cinderella’s Royal Table

Reservations for Cinderella’s Royal Table, a Pre-Fixe dining location, are some of the hardest to come by. Some of the classic dishes at this location include Stuffed French Toast, Beef Tenderloin, and Major Domo’s Short Ribs. While the food here is simply adequate, the main draw is the location.

A winding stone staircase leads you up to the dining room, where you’ll find stained glass windows, plush tapestries, and Disney Princesses! Characters are subject to change, but we have seen Ariel, Jasmine, Aurora, and Snow White in the past!

Best Magic Kingdom Quick Service for Dinner

Tortuga Tavern

Tortuga Tavern is another option in Adventureland — but this is best for when you’re in a hurry.  This counter-service restaurant is right across from Pirates of the Caribbean, and it has an old-world pirate charm to it.

Tortuga Tavern

Since this location is seasonal,  it has an inconsistent schedule and an ever-changing menu. But recently we’ve seen a Barbecued Slaw Dog and a Peanut Butter, Chocolate-Hazlenut Spread and Banana Sandwich.

While the food here doesn’t always impress us (we’re looking at you, flatbread), you can’t beat the atmosphere. The artwork inside celebrates the Disney film Pinocchio, and you’ll even find some tables by the window overlooking “it’s a small world”.
