Okay, it’s been a while since we’ve posted anything on food in Disney. Since our last vacation (2014) they’ve added quite a few new restaurants and foods at the existing quick service stops. It was fun to try the new foods and I can’t wait to share them all with you, good and bad. Here we go!
This restaurant is subpar. It’s good if you want average Chinese food. I ordered General Tso’s chicken buns and they were good but probably not something I would get again because there was too much sauce. Just a personal preference.
Le Cellier Steakhouse
I have always wanted to eat here so Dad made reservations for my birthday. The food was delicious but there wasn’t enough of it for the price we paid for it. I had the filet mignon for $54. It definitely wasn’t worth the money we paid for it, as good as the food was. I would recommend it for a date night though.
The Hollywood Brown Derby Lounge
I’m not going to go into detail on the hidden lounges because it is our little secret ;). However, this lounge was so good that it deserves to be on this list. We enjoy the food at The Hollywood Brown Derby but the lounge allowed us to save money while still eat a decent meal. The derby sliders were fantastic and we even got to try the famous grapefruit cake (not all it’s cracked up to be) and the banana toffee cake (totally worth it!). I can’t wait to go back!
50’s Prime Time Cafe
The ambiance is so fun and enjoyable! The food may not be the best, but the people and ambiance make it worth a trip. On the menu, you will find old-fashioned meals such as fried chicken, Grandma’s chicken pot pie, old-fashioned pot roast, meatloaf, and others. Just imagine you’ve traveled back in time to the era of the Dick Van Dyke show and are having a meal with your family. The servers will remind you that you don’t eat with your elbows on the table and that you don’t waste food. So we don’t love the food, but it’s always fun to eat there (even if it’s just a milkshake).
The Animal Kingdom-
After a not-so-great experience waiting in a crazy long line for that stupid Pandora ride (yeah, we’ll talk about that later), this food was such a pleasant surprise. If you only go to Pandora to eat, it will totally be worth your time! The slow-roasted grilled beef bowl was simply delicious. The meat was cooked perfectly and the salad underneath was so good. Definitely the best quick service in the Animal Kingdom!
This was our first time visiting this little market area. It was such a neat area to eat and the food was pretty good and decently priced. We ate the tikka masala chicken and enjoyed it. It is really filling so it kept us going for the rest of the day.
The Magic Kingdom-
Columbia Harbor House
We stopped here for lunch and the food was decent. We had the tuna sandwich and it was good but the chips were way overcooked. Overall, it wasn’t too bad for a quick service meal.
Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen
This restaurant was so cool! The decorations were awesome. It looks like you are eating in a library that you would imagine Jane and her father (from Tarzan) would have in their home. The food was also very good. Josh got the whole fish and enjoyed it. I really liked the noodle bowl. I think that this restaurant is good enough for another visit.
Be Our Guest
We really enjoy this restaurant, however, it is a little pricey for dinner. Julia decided to celebrate her birthday here for dinner. Unfortunately, we were seated in the West Wing (it’s dark, the rose is there, and thunder & lightning flash and crash) instead of the ballroom. It ended up being a pretty cool room, however, I think we all still enjoy the ballroom much better. Anyway, the food was good. I got the pan-seared chicken and it was pretty good, just a little pricey. I think that it’s a great restaurant if you are really into the ambiance, but the food is not amazing enough to justify the prices. Lunch is good though. The prices are definitely better and the food is good. I recommend the potato leek soup.
Paradiso 37, Taste of the Americas
We were very disappointed with this restaurant. I honestly, don’t remember what I ate but I remember thinking that it wasn’t as good as I thought it would be. The service was also pretty slow. Anyway, it won’t be a redo for us.
Planet Hollywood Observatory
I can’t believe how bad this food was! We were looking forward to great burgers but we got something you could get at a fast-food restaurant. They didn’t even taste that great. I don’t know, I guess if you like that kind of food. The ice cream guessing was pretty fun and yummy (still not worth going just for that though).
This restaurant serves traditional Mexican food that is simply divine! Dad brought me and the boys here for my birthday and we loved the food. I got the caesar salad which had a Mexican flair but the best part of my meal was the flautas. They were delicious! We will definitely be going back here next time. Pricing is good.
Wolfgang Puck Express
Another great quick service! We really enjoyed the food here and will probably go back another time. The food is healthy and simple which makes it great for a quick, delicious lunch.
Now, this was great Asian food! It was my first time having real ramen and it was delicious. I had watched the Food channel the night before and they were making ramen so I thought it would be cool to try. All of the other foods looked good too! I think this will be another restaurant that we will be adding to our favorites list.
Grand Floridian Cafe
We ate here twice this trip, once for breakfast and once for lunch. Lunch was very good! I had smoked salmon with all the fixings and a bagel and it was the best! Breakfast was for my birthday and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The lobster benedict was pretty good but the pancakes with strawberries, cream, and sugar cookies were the best! I totally recommend eating here.
Ample Hills Creamery
Best ice cream ever! I can’t remember the last time I have had such delicious ice cream! I had the peppermint pattie and the ooey gooey butter cake in a cone. I am obsessed with birthday cake flavors but I don’t like the fake flavors, so the ooey gooey butter cake was so good because it wasn’t flavored. It had real cake pieces. The peppermint pattie had chunks of delicious patties, perfect for a hot day.
We love Boma! It has amazing foods from all around Africa. This time we went to breakfast for Julia’s birthday. The food was still very good. It is definitely more expensive because it’s a really nice buffet. If you go for breakfast, try the French toast bread pudding! It is amazing!
