It’s okay. We know you come to Disney for the food. We do too!
And boy, does Disney have options when it comes to where you eat! There are places like Morimoto Asia in Disney Springs or Le Cellier in EPCOT. Every year, theme park restaurants are nationally ranked on which are the best, and this year, THREE Disney World restaurants made the cut. Let’s find out which ones they were.
Every year, USA Today’s 10 Best works with a panel of theme park insiders to create a list of nominees for best theme park restaurants in the US. Then, the readers vote for their favorites leaving us with this Top 10 List.
And what do you know?! THREE Walt Disney World restaurants are in the top 10. Space 220 came in at number 3, Yak & Yeti came in at number 2, and Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria almost missed the list coming in at number 10!
Here’s a quick refresher on these three restaurants. Let’s start with Space 220. It’s a futuristic restaurant that takes guests on a dining adventure 220 miles “above” EPCOT in the Centauri Space Station. It features a multi-course, prix fixe menu with two courses for lunch and three for dinner. The 8oz Filet Mignon was the standout in our opinion when it comes to dinner.
About Yak & Yeti in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, it’s a table service restaurant that offers a flavorful fusion of Asian cuisine complete with special Disney touches in a detailed Nepalese-style setting.
The menu at this Asian fusion restaurant is a delicious blend of Chinese, Japanese, Thai, and Indian flavors. You’ll find an array of interesting and tempting dishes to choose from, including pot stickers, lettuce cups, ribs, seafood curry, Lo Mein, soups, salads, stir-fried meats, sweet and sour meats, hot teas, and delicious desserts.
Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria, located in EPCOT, never fails to impress with its authentic Neapolitan wood-fired pizzas, mouthwatering cocktails, and classic Italian dishes that are made with the utmost care.
From the moment you step inside, you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to Naples! Whether you’re a pizza fanatic or simply love good food and great vibes, this restaurant is a must-visit.
