Magic Kingdom Dining

A visit to Disney World’s Magic Kingdom is always a very exciting and magical experience.  While exploring the park, finding good places to eat is also a must!  Here are a few ideas of places to make dining reservations on your next visit to the Magic Kingdom….

Be Our Guest

From the moment you walk up to this restaurant, it makes you feel like you are right in the middle of the Beast’s castle from Beauty and the Beast.  I love looking at it from the outside.  The details as you walk across the bridge to get inside are a lot of fun…I love looking at the gargoyles!  Once you step inside, there is no denying you are inside Beast’s Castle.  There are several different dining rooms to experience and if you are there during dinner, you might even get a chance to meet Beast!  This restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.  For breakfast and lunch, it is 1 counter service dining credit per person and for dinner it is 1 table service dining credit per person.  Reservations are highly recommended for all dining experiences. 

Cinderella’s Royal Table

Cinderella’s Royal Table is truly a magical dining experience.  This restaurant is inside Cinderella’s Castle and is hosted by Cinderella.  During your meal, some of Cinderella’s princess friends will come around to your table to meet guests, take photos and sign autographs.  Once inside, guests feel like they have been whisked away into a fairytale castle during medieval times. This restaurant is definitely one you don’t want to miss. Guests can dine at Cinderella’s Royal Table for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  It is a Signature Dining Experience and is worth 2 table service credits per person on the Disney Dining Plan.  Reservations are highly recommended for Cinderella’s Royal Table. 

The Crystal Palace

Right off of Main Street U.S.A., the Crystal Palace is a great place to have a meal while meeting those famous 100-Acre Wood friends.  The restaurant is beautiful.  It looks like a Victorian-era greenhouse with tons of windows and topiaries and plants throughout.  This is a great place to meet and take photos of Winnie the Pooh and some of his friends.  It is a buffet dining experience that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.  It is 1 table service credit per person on the Disney Dining.  Reservations are highly recommended. 

Liberty Tree Tavern

Who doesn’t love a good Thanksgiving-type meal? Liberty Tree Tavern is all-American food in a colonial-style setting.  For my family, this is one of our go-to restaurants for dinner.  The meal at dinner is served family-style and all-you-care-to-eat.  You can also dine at this restaurant at lunch, but the menu is slightly different then at dinner.  It is open for lunch and dinner and is 1 table service credit on the Disney Dining Plan.  Reservations are highly recommended. 

Tony’s Town Square

Tony’s Town Square is located on Main Street and is themed after the Italian restaurant when Lady and the Tramp shared their plate of spaghetti. The restaurant’s theme is cute and if you are looking for Italian food at the Magic Kingdom, then this might be a place you might want to check out.  For me, if I’m going to eat Italian food while at Disney World, I would rather go to Epcot and eat at Tutto Italia. There is a lunch dining package available at Tony’s Town Square that gives you VIP views of the Festival of Fantasy parade. Tony’s is open for lunch and dinner and is 1 table service credit per person on the Disney Dining Plan.  Reservations are highly recommended. 

Other dining experiences to check out (that I have not tried) are any of the dessert parties, the new Tiana’s Riverboat Party (which I want to try), The Plaza Restaurant, Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen and The Diamond Horseshoe.
