Food tips

Get groceries delivered to your hotel room with Garden Grocer.

If you have a villa or suite with a kitchen and want to cook your own meals in your rooms, but don’t have a car, you should use Garden Grocer which will deliver your goods for you.

Book your meal during Happily Ever After or Harmonious for spectacular views.

Imagine enjoying some delicious California cuisine while being serenaded by Disney tunes and colorful fireworks. By planning a meal during the fireworks, you’ll experience one of the most memorable moments of your trip.

Try to plan your trip during the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival.

If there’s one tip that you take from this listing, it must be this one. If you love food and want to try some of the most delicious dishes and wines from over 25 different countries and regions, you MUST come during the Food and Wine Festival. It’s incredible! Usually runs from mid-September to early November.

Eat during a parade for a shorter wait time.

Okay so maybe you don’t care about that parade, or maybe you already saw it. You should eat during this time instead because it’s generally the lightest moments at the restaurants as most people are starting to head over to the parade route.

Time your restaurant reservation times at Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom for the perfect parade view.

How awesome would it be to watch the Festival of Fantasy at Magic Kingdom (3 pm) while enjoying some Italian food from Tony’s Town Square? Talk about magical!

Book a dinner show for a one of a kind experience.

Whether if you like luau’s or Wild West revues, a dinner show is a one of a kind experience that you absolutely don’t want to miss out on. Plus, the food ain’t half that bad! (Unfortunately, Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue is close permanently due to the pandemic).

Ask cast members what there favorite restaurants are.

Cast members usually know all the ins and outs of some restaurants, that’s why I suggest you ask them and see what there favorites are. Sometimes, their recommendations are spot on.

Try the food even if the review says “NO

Just because a certain food that you wanted to try get’s a bad review doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t try it. I mean honestly, are you going to trust a complete stranger? (like me lol) Give it a shot because you might be that 1 out of the 2300 people who actually loves it.

Avoid certain over-hyped restaurants or foods.

Just because a restaurant is super hyped up doesn’t mean you’ll like it. Always check out their menus and look up restaurant reviews online. ‘Ohana, worth it. Be Our Guest, incredible atmosphere, expensive foods. Everyone has their own opinions so make sure you truly want to go to a restaurant and are not basing your decision off of what your friend is telling you. For example every blog I read talks so highly about the school bread from Kringle Bakery at Epcot’s Norway Pavilion. I think it’s overrated. (Yeah, that’s right, I said it. Fight me!)

You don’t always need a reservation for a fantastic meal.

There are quite a few delicious restaurants that you can just walk up to and get a great meal, especially at Epcot’s World Showcase. Best of all, these restaurants post their menus outside their doors so you can evaluate their options.
