Favorite Places to eat at Disney World Resorts

This week we will be discussing Dining at the Disney Resorts. I myself have not eaten at any of the resorts, but I have heard amazing things about the restaurants the Resorts have to offer. Let's start with the quick service restaurants. Most of the quick service at the resorts are cafeteria type restaurants, but they are still special. Here are the favorites.

1. Contempo Cafe- This restaurant is located at Disney's Contemporary Resort, which is in the Magic Kingdom area. Come here for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Try some oatmeal, eggs, French toast, bakery items, burgers, sandwiches, flatbreads, pasta entrĂ©es and more. Grab and go food is also available if you want to eat on the run. Don't forget to wave at people on the monorail as the ride by. Also order your meals on a screen and then wait for your food to be brought out to you. Amazing right?

2. Captain Cooks- This restaurant is located at  Disney's Polynesian Village Resort which is also in the Magic Kingdom resort area. Try a Mickey Waffle or banana-stuffed Tonga Toast for breakfast. For lunch and dinner try a variety of sandwiches, salads, flatbreads, even beer and wine. Did I mention they are open 24/7?

3. Landscape of Flavors-  This restaurant is located at Disney's Art of Animation Resort which is in the Wide World of Sports resort area. Food here is inspired by classic American fare including build-your-own burgers, pizza, salad and an array of specialty beverages. For breakfast try some french toast or a specialty platter or even a make-your-own omelette. For dinner have some fish, chicken, ribs and more. Kids options available at all meals.

Next we are going to check out the table service and signature restaurants.

1.  Jiko - The Cooking Place- This restaurant is located in the Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge which is in the Animal Kingdom resort area. They offer a blend of traditional African, Indian and Mediterranean cuisine. The menu changes seasonally but includes flatbreads, filet mignon, and more including options for the kiddos. There is even wine tasting offered. There are twin wood-burning ovens whose light mimics an African sunset. There is a dress code at this restaurant. Reservations are recommended.

2. Sanaa- This restaurant is located in the Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village which is also located in the Animal Kingdom resort area. This restaurant mixes African cooking with Indian flavors. For breakfast they are a casual quick serve restaurant with waffles, sausage, bacon, eggs and more to help you get your day started. Start your lunch or dinner with Indian-style bread service with 9 accompaniments, from sweet mango chutney to spicy red chile sambal. Then go for a meat, seafood, or vegetarian entree. You can try some wine from South Africa, beer from India or Kenya, and specialty cocktails like the Malawi Mango Margarita. Watch the African animals as you dine.

3. California Grill- This is a big talked about restaurant located at the Disney's Contemporary Resort in the Magic Kingdom resort area. They offer American cuisine, seafood, and sushi. As you eat take in the sights of Seven Seas Lagoon and Magic Kingdom park as the restaurant is located on the 15th floor. Guests of age can choose from over 300 wines!!! They also offer one of the best fireworks dining experiences and if you dine before the fireworks just bring your receipt back for reentry to watch and enjoy.
