Epcot Dining

Epcot is one of my favorite places to go to for a bite to eat!  There are so many options and so many different types of restaurants in the World Showcase. Epcot is also a great place to use a counter service credit because of all the options.  Below are a few of our favorite table service options at Epcot…

Akershus Royal Banquet Hall

For those looking for a fun Disney princess dining experience, this is a great place to go in Epcot.  Akershus is located in the Norway Pavilion of Epcot’s World Showcase. There are always several Disney princesses who will come around to your table for photos and autographs.  During a visit to Akershus, you may be able to meet Snow White, Cinderella, Belle, Princess Aurora or Ariel.  From time to time, other Disney princesses will stop in to say hello.  One of my favorite Akershus memories was when Mulan was there and wanted to help teach my kids how to be a young warrior like her. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall with a bit of a Norwegian flair.  It is worth 1 table service credit on the Disney Dining Plan.  Reservations are highly recommended.

Les Chefs de France

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the World Showcase.  The food is French-inspired and you feel like you are sitting in the middle of a café in Paris. The French Onion Soup is so yummy! At certain times of the day if you stop by the outside of the restaurant, you can watch the Server Amusant perform.  Always incredible! Lunch and dinner are served at Les Chefs de France.  It is worth 1 table service credit on the Disney Dining Plan.  Reservations are recommended. Bon Appétit!

Coral Reef Restaurant

The Coral Reef Restaurant is located in the Seas with Nemo and Friends pavilion in the Future World area of Epcot.  If you are a seafood lover, you might want to check this restaurant out.  The views in this restaurant are amazing.  If you are lucky enough, you can sit by the large aquarium and watch all the sea life and even sometimes a scuba diver swim by! Lunch and dinner reservations can be made for the Coral Reef.  It is worth 1 table service credit on the Disney Dining Plan.  Reservations are recommended. 

The Garden Grill

My family has always enjoyed The Garden Grill for the Chip n’ Dale Harvest Feast dinner.  It is located in the Land Pavilion of Epcot’s Future World.  The restaurant slowly rotates through some of the different scenes from the Living with the Land ride.  It is an all-you-care-to-enjoy family-style meal.  Chip n’ Dale are the hosts and are usually joined by Farmer Micky and Pluto.  Before enjoying your meal, take a ride on Living with the Land and you can go through the greenhouse and see where some of the food is grown that you are about to enjoy.  The Garden Grill is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  It is worth 1 table service credit on the Disney Dining Plan.  Reservations are highly recommended. 

Le Cellier Steakhouse

This is a must for the steak lover!  Le Cellier Steakhouse is located in the Canada Pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase.  All I’m going to say though is, “Cheddar Cheese Soup!”  It is so good!  This restaurant makes you feel like you are sitting in a wine cellar of a chateau-inspired hotel in Canada. If you happen to be one of the first lunch reservations, you will be greeted into the restaurant by the staff singing, “O’ Canada.”  Le Cellier Steakhouse serves lunch and dinner. It is a Fine/Signature Dining Experience and is worth 2 table service credits on the Disney Dining Plan.  Reservations are highly recommended.

San Angel Inn Restaurante

Located in the Mexico Pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase, San Angel Inn makes it’s guests feel like they are dining at night at the base of the Mayan Ruins. As you dine on your Mexican-inspired meal, you can watch the Gran Fiesta Tour boats go by. Even though it is not in my top favorites, San Angel Inn Restaurant is still a good restaurant and a great place to go to get out of the sun.  San Angel Inn Restaurante serves lunch and dinner and is worth 1 table service credit on the Disney Dining Plan.  Reservations are recommended. 

Teppan Edo

For those who love Japanese steakhouse-style restaurants, this is your place!  The Teppan chefs cook right at your table and it is so much fun! Not only are they great cooks, but they also do a great job at entertaining! This is always a fun dining experience for the whole family!  Teppan Edo is located in the Japan Pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase.  Lunch and dinner are served and is worth 1 table service credit on the Disney Dining Plan.  Reservations are recommended. 

Tutto Italia

My favorite Italian food at Disney World! For those looking for good Italian food while at Disney World, this is where to go!  Tutto Italia is located in the Italy Pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase. It is worth 1 table service credit on the Disney Dining Plan.  Reservations are recommended. 

Via Naploli Ristorante e Pizzeria

This is a great place for families, especially those who want to eat in the World Showcase, but might have picky eaters.  Everyone loves pizza, right? Besides pizza, there are pasta dishes too.  I love looking at the wood-fired ovens in Via Napoli…they are so much fun!  Via Napoli is in the Italy Pavilion in the World Showcase and serves lunch and dinner. It is worth 1 table service credit on the Disney Dining Plan.  Reservations are recommended.  

Other table service restaurants around Epcot (that I have still not tried) are the Biergarten Restaurant in the Germany Pavilion, La Hacienda de San Angel in the Mexico Pavilion, Monsieur Paul in the France Pavilion, Nine Dragons Restaurant in the China Pavilion, Restaurant Marrakesh in the Morocco Pavilion, Rose & Crown in the Great Britain Pavilion (I’ve actually ate here, but it’s been a really long time ago), Spice Road Table in the Morocco Pavilion,  and Tokyo Dining in the Japan Pavilion.
