Who doesn’t love a delectable meal? I know we do. Deciding where to eat is one of the most exciting parts of vacation planning for me. We have a rule in our house: We don’t eat anywhere on vacation, where we can eat at home. This forces us out of our routine, and comfort zone making us try new places.
Some of our most heavenly meals were at Walt Disney World. My youngest discovered lobster bisque at The Coral Reef Restaurant in EPCOT. This lead to a love of lobster anything. He was 8 years old at the time. We were able to try out African cuisine at BOMA, and Jiko in the Animal Kingdom Lodge. Jiko is a favorite. They have one of the largest selections of South African wines. We enjoyed a lovely bottle of Black Pearl Oro. I remember the name because it’s also the name of Captain Jack Sparrow’s ship.
If you are celebrating something, like a birthday or anniversary, Disney loves to join in the celebration. As a vacation planner, I always add notes to the reservations so the restaurant is aware of the celebration. You never know, you may end up with a complimentary dessert! We did for our anniversary.
There is yumminess to be discovered in the parks as well. We have a list of things we must eat every trip: Mickey pretzel, Dole Whip (soft serve pineapple ice cream), Mickey Bar, popcorn, and a roasted turkey leg. On our last trip, I tried the adult beverage version of the Dole Whip with dark rum. After a busy day at Magic Kingdom, it was perfect.
I highly recommend getting reservations for Be Our Guest in the Magic Kingdom. We tried the Grey Stuff, and it was delicious. Towards the end of our dinner, Beast came through the dining room. Some of our favorites are pictured below.
Yes, we have a lot of favorites. We really enjoy our food! What are some of your favorite Disney foods?

OH, what a wonderful treat! I firmly believe that calories on vacation don’t count at all! I personally love the simple but delicious mickey shaped vanilla ice-cream covered in chocolate on a stick. Delicous!
That cake looks delicious. Incidentally, today is my birthday. Would have loved to have gone to Disney and be spoiled rotten.
I have to admit that it can be sad for me food-wise when at Disney. Everything looks so delicious, but I can’t eat most of it due to allergies. I feel like Disney World would better accommodate people like me than some of the smaller parks.

I do know that if Disney is aware of the allergy, the chef will do what he/she can to accommodate. As a planner, I can even add your specific allergies in the notes sections, or call Disney Dining for you. A friend with Celiac’s said she was pleasantly surprised. Having allergies can be a huge challenge. Best Wishes in all your travels!
These look delicious – especially that first picture of the cake! I don’t remember too many different meals we had at our recent Disney stop in Tokyo, but I do remember super long churros! And they were nice and warm too – which was great given it was in the middle of winter.
Lobster Bisque? That’s no joke! I love finding those little treasures at Disney parks, especially when most people go for the junk food. My favorite find has been the monte cristo sandwiches at the Blue Bayou in Disneyland.
I love trying foods from around the world! And lobster bisque is a personal favorite of mine! On our last Disneyland trip, we devoured a Dole Whip float that was pretty tasty!

On our last trip, I enjoyed the Dole Whip with dark rum!
Photo of Cake looks delicious and I would really opt for this in Disney world. On my Disneyland Paris trip we had a buffet lunch and could not remember much about the food. Now I suppose that I missed many delicious things. Also a nice tip on getting a reservation and Be my Guest in Magic Kingdom.
I would definitely settle with the dole whip and lobster bisque. Since I have a sweet tooth, I’m always ready to eat as many desserts as I can. 🙂 This post is so tempting. Cheers!!
That cake looks yummy! I haven’t been to Disneyland yet, but surely will try lots of sweet there. I always try lots of new food on the road.
Disneyland is not exactly the place for solo backpackers like me but the food does look good. Mediterranean Mule looks particularly good. Good to see that there is a variety of cuisine available, representing different parts of the world.
