Eating Out in Magic Kingdom, Florida
A lot is spoken about the price of eating out in the Disney parks but in Magic Kingdom there are a lot of options. We’ve not tried them all yet but we are getting there!!
Like all the Disney parks there are various stalls and cafes serving hot dogs, burgers & snacks. They are not too badly priced & fine for a quick bite if you have had one of the excellent breakfast buffets on the way to the park or intend to leave in time to have a meal out on the way home.
Cosmic Rays Starlight Café is located in Tomorrowland & is a self service type restaurant serving the usual burgers, chicken, sandwiches & salads. I cant say that we were very impressed with this option, seemed very expensive for the surroundings & little better than a take-away, but we may have gone on a bad day.
The Plaza is also rated as reasonably priced, we haven’t tried this one but it would appear to offer slightly more choice & sit down service. May be a better choice if you need a bit of a rest.
Tony's Town Square Restaurant is an italian restaurant more suitable for a full meal – anything from pizzas and pastas to steak & chicken & healthy options. (I'm afraid the deserts cant be classed as healthy though!!) This is the first of the restaurants where a table can be booked and this is recommended if you have a particular time in mind.
We had our second character meal at The Crystal Palace and I think this would have to be our favourite. Located not far from the entrance, the setting is beautiful and the food is served buffet style. There’s everything you can imagine on offer – a beautiful salad bar, carved meats, fish, all types of vegetables and deserts to die for! When the characters from Winnie the Pooh came round, that was the icing on the cake! Its not cheap but the looks on the kids faces was pure magic as they had their photos taken with Tigger & Eeyore & pals and the food was great as well. Make sure to book to eat at a time to suit you.
So the only character meal we have yet to try is at Cinderella's Royal Table. As we are not early risers it seems we are unlikely to catch the ‘Once Upon a Time Breakfast ‘at Cinderella's Royal Table but it may be nice to try the ‘storybook dining experience’ at lunch or dinner. Again booking is essential & a deposit is needed for the breakfast but talking to those who have been not only is the food good but it is an experience not to be missed for the little ones!
If you have special dietary requirements then you can phone ahead to make necessary arrangements, Disney are very helpful we have found and If you have somewhere definite in mind where you would like to eat on your visit, it is a good idea to call Disney central reservations to make a booking. Nobody cries as hard as a little girl who cant dine with Cinderella!!
