If you’re a regular reader at this site, you don’t have to be told how much I love Walt Disney World. There are far too many reasons to give you a true picture of what that place means to me, but I’ve touched on it before.
One special aspect of Walt Disney World that is often overlooked is the food. Yes, much of it is expensive, but it’s absolutely worth it to try some of the great things that WDW has to offer. Here are some of my favorites:
Steak at Le Cellier: The steakhouse in the Canada pavilion at Epcot is simply amazing. Without a doubt it was one of the best steaks I’ve ever had. Even a steak I’ve had from there that wasn’t cooked properly. Just like everywhere else at Disney World, the atmosphere is completely immersive. The sides (especially cream cheese mashed potatoes) and bread sticks are really good there as well.
Breakfast at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall: Having three nieces, I have to go to things like the Princess breakfasts. The breakfast at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in the Norway pavilion at Epcot is a great family style meal where the girls will enjoy interacting with the princesses. There’s nothing Scandinavian about the food other than the lingonberry jelly, but this family style classic breakfast is delicious and fun.
Mickey Waffles: OK, so these aren’t exactly revolutions of flavor, but they’re unique to Disney World, and when I get them at the food court at whichever resort I’m staying. It’s a nice reminder of where I am.
Pastries at Boulangerie Patisserie: For many years it was a family tradition to get pastries from Boulangerie Patisserie in the France pavilion at Epcot. There are always so many exquisite choices there (too many, maybe?), and we really couldn’t go wrong there. I don’t know why we haven’t gone there our last couple of trips.
Dole Whip: This is far and away my favorite treat at Walt Disney World. It’s only available at a stand in Adventureland in the Magic Kingdom and at the snack bar at the Polynesian Resort, so it’s a truly special item. Pineapple soft serve…it couldn’t be much simpler…but it’s great way to celebrate your time at WDW.
Those are just a few of my favorites. Disney fans, what are your favorite things to eat at WDW?
