Disney is well-known for many things, with their theming being at the top of that list. Disney’s immersive, interactive, and detailed theming transports guests into different stories, worlds, and universes each day.
Think Pandora — The World of Avatar, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, or Tower of Terror. But that doesn’t just apply to lands and attractions, as their restaurants sometimes have the same level of detail! And with Disney’s theming abilities in mind, we had to ask our readers for some input!
We took to our Facebook Page to ask our readers, “What restaurant theme would you want Disney World to do next?” We got 438 responses, with a ton of passionate answers! Here’s what you guys thought!
That’s right — the bar filled with ruffians from Tangled. Just think about it — elixirs, meat, and karaoke!
We had some commenters provide ideas like, “When you come in, you tell a CM your “dream” and they work the good/appropriate dreams into a show/song, Monsters Inc style.” Another commenter thought a Tangled-themed restaurant should be a “dinner show like hoop-de-doo or spirit of Aloha.”
This idea had a ton of comments and reactions! Ghosts and New Orleans food? We’re in!
We received comments like, “YESSSSS where you eat in the dining room with the ghosts!!!! How awesome would that be!” Another commenter said, “Absolutely!! With items moving around by themselves and lights flickering and having the ghost host make announcements. It would be a fun experience.” We love this idea — how do we make it happen?! Fun fact, Dining in Disney has eaten INSIDE the Haunted Mansion. You can read all about that experience here.
We had a ton of responses wanting a Princess and the Frog-themed restaurant in Disney World, which Disney World recently made plans for with the expected addition of Reflection – A Disney Lakeside Lodge. However, there’s been no movement forward on this project, and the project may have been canceled. But no worries, this idea has already been carried out on the Disney Wonder Cruise Ship!
But we still want our Princess and the Frog-themed restaurant in Disney World too! Commenters asked for a “Tiana’s Place-themed restaurant with new Orleans style food” with requests for beignets and frog legs! (Sorry, Tiana and Naveen!)
We haven’t seen much Luca representation in the parks, but commenters are asking for it!
One commenter nailed the theme down with the idea of “pasta in Italy pavilion with 50’s/60’s Italian music” that’s “Amalfi coast inspired.” Of course, we wouldn’t mind some Luca-inspired pesto pasta in Disney World!

Of course, Encanto was included on this list! One commenter had the idea of the restaurant actually being Casita, with the decor coming “alive like the house does.”
Commenters added that it should have “actual Columbian food” with “coffee and arepas of course.” Disney has commented on Encanto potentially making more of an appearance in the parks. So fingers crossed some Encanto-themed announcements roll out soon!
