With four amazing theme parks, more than 25 hotels & resorts and one of the area’s largest shopping dining and entertainment districts in the State of Florida, you can bet there are a number of great restaurants at the Walt Disney World Resort.  

Many of these dining experiences are located not only within the theme parks or at Disney Springs, but some of the best are located at a number of the resort hotels.

In this article we share our list of the 20 best restaurants throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. While everyone as different tastes, especially when it comes to food, your list may vary but we built our list based on those on-site restaurants that serve the highest quality food in a distinctive setting.
