Dose of Disney: My favorite places to eat!

I'm currently in TOTAl denial because I don't have an upcoming Disney trip to look forward too! But, to fill the void today I'm talking about Disney food! 

One of the best parts of Disney is the food! Most of the time I feel like I never stop eating. So, in today's post I'm going over my favorite dishes, snacks, and restaurants at Disney World that you have to try! 

Breakfast | Breakfast is a must at the parks. Normally I don't eat breakfast but we always stop and eat something in the morning during days at the parks. One of my favorite dishes is Mickey Waffles. A. they are so Instagram worthy and B. they are delicious! I ate these at the Polynesian Resort, but you can get them at a lot of places in the park. Another family favorite of ours is the Disney Cinnamon rolls. They are great no matter where you get them! If your looking for a sit-down restaurant for breakfast the Crystal Palace is also a great option. It is a buffet style and has characters like Pooh Bear and Tigger. Major plus: you get to be in the park early which means pictures without anyone in the way. Score! 

Where to eat breakfast: 
 Sunshine Seasons | location Epcot 
Gaston's Tavern | location Magic Kingdom Fantasy Land 
Kusafiri Coffee Shop & Bakery | location Animal Kingdom 
The Crystal Palace | location Magic Kingdom Main Street 

For lunch we have eaten everywhere and anywhere basically. We normally do quick service for lunch, but sometimes we do sit down as well. My favorite lunch dish is the roast beef sandwich at Be Our Guest. It is so tasty! Plus you can eat at Be Our Guest for lunch as a fancier quick serve vs. a sit down meal. But, you NEED a reservation. Especially with the current Beauty and the Beast buzz YOU WILL NOT GET IN WITHOUT A RESERVATION! I can't stress this enough. So many people think they will get in with walk-ins. Trust me it is a bad idea. 

For Epcot, we have a lot of favorite lunch spots. For me, I LOVE the little quick serve area in France. I get the turkey BLT and it is so good. Then you cannot forget dessert! These two desserts (pictured below) are my all time favorite Disney treats. They are very underrated, but they will not disappoint. Also in Epcot we love the quick serve fish and chips stand. It is the same fish and chips in the Rose and Crown Pub, but a lot cheaper (and quicker!). For Animal Kingdom my family and I switch off between the BBQ place and Pizzafari. But, the menu changed at Pizzafari to be more healthy (like no) so we might need to find a new favorite. As for Hollywood Studios we are mourning the loss of Pizza Planet. So, we don't have a new restaurant we love yet. But we did try _____ and it was pretty good. The entrees are super big so if you don't eat a lot like me be sure to split something! 

Where to eat lunch: 
Be Our Guest | location Magic Kingdom in Fantasy Land 
Backlot Express | location Hollywood Studios 
Flame Tree BBQ or Pizzafari | location Animal Kingdom 

Now on to dinner, my family and I certainly have our favorites for dinner spots at Disney. Usually our sit down reservations are for dinner, but not always. Our go-to dinner reservation restaurant is the pizza place in Italy at Epcot. This place is a must!! It is so so good. Some of the best pizza ever! Also, we tried Liberty Tree Tavern this trip and we really enjoyed it. We ate there for lunch but I recommend going there for dinner because it is on the heavier side. If your willing to venture outside of the parks our all time favorite dinner place is Boma at Animal Kingdom Lodge. It is a buffet with African style food plus some classic favorites. They have the best prime rib, hummus, coleslaw, and dessert. Really random favorites, but everything is super tasty! Also, they have an extensive menu of cocktails that are also equally delicious. As for Magic Kingdom we usually stick to quick-service spots like Columbia Harbour House for fish & chips, Cosmic Ray's for a burger or chicken strips, or Pecos Bill for Mexican food. Pecos Bill has a little patio that is also a good spot to watch a night time parade! 

Where to eat dinner: 
Boma | Animal Kingdom Lodge Resort 
Rose & Crown Pub | United Kingdom at Epcot 
Chefs de France | France Pavillion at Epcot 
Via Napoli | Italy at Epcot 
Columbia Harbor House | Liberty Square at Magic Kingdom 
Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe | Tomorrowland at Magic Kingdom 
Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn & Cafe | Frontierland at Magic Kingdom 

Snack all day everyday is my motto at Disney. I am a huge snacker so Disney is my paradise. Here are a few of my favorite snacks.... 

Mickey Pretzels 
Dole Whips | location Adventure Land Magic Kingdom
Frozen Chocolate Covered Banana 
Pretzel in Germany | location Epcot
