Teen Disney: Top 3 Restaurants

Hey guys, hope everyone is doing well! For this post I am going to talk about my top 3 favorite restaurants an the Walt Disney World® Resort. These picks are not only good for the hungry teen, but the hungry adult as well.


1: Teppan Edo®. Located in the Japan Pavilion at EPCOT® this teppanyaki style restaurant is AMAZING! If you happen to not be familiar with teppanyaki, it is a style of Japanese cuisine where your main meal is done on a flat grill right in front of your eyes. It is a great fun family dining experience and a must hit at EPCOT. My personal favs are,

Appetizer: Either the Wafu Pork Ribs or maybe some Sushi

Entrees: Filet Mignon or Chicken Breast

Dessert: Chocolate Ginger Cake

2: Be Our Guest®: Located in Fantasyland® at the Magic Kingdom®, this French-inspired menu is just great! Think of the movie Beauty and the Beast and picture eating in the main ballroom where Belle and the Beast share their first dance or maybe the rose gallery and the infamous west wing. Well you can do it all in Magic Kingdoms newest (and best if you ask me) full service (at dinner) restaurant. Make sure you come for dinner and not for lunch because lunch is just over the counter and dinner is full service. Eating here is more than just a meal, it is an experience! Adults, this is the only place in Magic Kingdom where alcohol is served.

Appetizer: French Onion Soup

Entree: Braised Pork (Coq au Vin Style)

Dessert: Triple Chocolate Cupcake

3: California Grill: Out of all three this is the most expensive, but well worth it. Overlooking Magic Kingdom this restaurant is located at the top floors of the Contemporary Resort®. With a full panoramic view of the Magic Kingdom resort area and observation decks outside for sightseeing and wishes (don’t worry, if you eat there before wishes starts you are invited back to those decks for the show) this is a signature dining experience at Disney. California Grill’s modern design along full sushi bar and an extensive wine collection makes it arguably the best on Disney property. A must hit, but I would recommend it for a romantic evening with your significant other or parents with older kids and teens.

Appetizer: Heirloom Tomato BLT Flatbread or any Sushi (my favorite is the Pork Belly Nigri)

Entrees: Oak-fired Filet of Beef or Bell & Evans Chicken

Dessert: Warm Homemade Fritters

All these three restaurants are great, but make sure to keep track of time and make reservations as soon as possible. The earliest you can make them is 180 days out.

Bon Appetit,
