Dining + Snack Options at Magic Kingdom 77/#100DaysOfDisney

Dining + Snack Options at Disney's Magic Kingdom. Never be stuck for where to eat at this theme park ever again!


Visiting Walt Disney World and any of their theme parks is as much about the food and dining as it is about the rides, parades and entertainment! I bet you won’t find a single person who has been to the World that doesn’t have a favourite snack or quick service location or restaurant… probably several favourites! I thought I would write about the dining options at each of the four theme parks: Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and Epcot. This week it is the turn of Magic Kingdom.

We have far from tried every eatery at the theme parks – but we have our favourites that we re-visit each time we go, and there are some which we are planning on dining at during our Halloween in the Wilderness trip. I’ve taken lots of random photos over the years we’ve visited Walt Disney World, so if I have any pictures of the dining establishments, I’ll be including them here, as well as links to our reviews of the places we have dined at or bought snacks from.

Dining at Walt Disney World is broken down into Table Service – where you sit inside the restaurant and are served at your table. A table service restaurant may also be an All-You-Care-To Enjoy Buffet, where you help yourself, but are brought drinks to your table by the server, or Family Style, where platters of food are brought for you all to share. Quick Service – or counter service, where you order your food at the counter and take it to the seating area, which is less formal than a table service establishment. Snacks and drinks can be bought at Kiosks, Carts, or Walk-Up Windows.

Unless otherwise stated, you can use Disney Dining Plan credits to purchase your meal. Check the menu boards at kiosks and shops for the symbol below which tells you that you are able to purchase the item using a Disney Dining Plan Snack Credit.
