10 Best Walt Disney World Restaurant Views

“With so much to see at Walt Disney World Resort, families can be hesitant to spend too much time sitting down in a restaurant due to FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out).  Don’t worry, one way to not miss a thing is to make a reservation at a restaurant with a view.” – James & Lisa

Magic Kingdom

Table Service at Dinner

A quick service location for breakfast and lunch, Be Our Guest Restaurant transforms into a table service restaurant for dinner.

3. Hollywood Brown Derby

Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Fine/Signature Dining

Lunch and Dinner

Menu

The Hollywood Brown Derby, in our opinion, is the best table service restaurant at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.The restaurant is an authentic replica of the famous Brown Derby in Hollywood. And while it is a signature dining experience, there are ways to save a little money. Order the cobb salad and split it with someone or just enjoy an appetizer. It’s a great place to escape the hustle and bustle of the parks.

4. Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen

Magic Kingdom Park

Adventureland

Lunch and Dinner

Menu

The Skipper Canteen is a new favorite. The food is inspired by the cuisine of Asia, South America, and Africa but there is something for everyone. And it is delicious! The theme is also really cool. “Immerse yourself in the legacy of the Jungle Cruise! The same skippers who guided your steamer down the Nile, Amazon and Congo Rivers have opened the doors and kitchens of their tropical headquarters to fellow adventurers and famished families like your own!” Get ready for an adventure!

6. Tiffins

Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Fine/Signature Dining

Lunch and Dinner

You have to try Tiffins at least once. It’s a great experience! The Cast Members are always friendly and helpful. Plus the food is amazing! For lunch, try the Taste of Tiffins. It’s easy to split and you can try several menu items. There are lots of adventurous options and it’s a fun place to try something new.

If you can’t get a reservation (or if you are looking for a quick meal) check out the Nomad Lounge next door. It has it’s own menu but you can also order appetizers from Tiffins. We recommend the Lobster-Popcorn Thai Curry Soup.

Yak and Yeti Restaurant – Animal Kingdom’s Best Kept Secret

“One of our favorite table service restaurants at Walt Disney World is The Yak and Yeti Restaurant. Located in Asia, it’s very possible to walk right past this eatery – it blends in beautifully with the background and is tucked just off the main path. After you’ve stampeded past it to ride Expedition Everest come back and relax in one of the most well-done hideaways on Disney property.” – Beth & Genevieve

Review | Sanaa

“In case you can’t tell by the title, I’ve been watching a bit of “Still Star-Crossed” and I’m feeling a bit Shakespearean these days.  And while Sanaa at the Animal Kingdom Lodge reminds me in no way of Hamlet or any other Shakespeare play, it did give me pause when I first made the reservation. Hence it had me thinking, “to eat, or not to eat” at the best restaurant on Walt Disney World property. Let’s venture back in time to when I discovered this gem and I’ll explain to you the plentiful reasons why you need to add Sanaa to your list of dining experiences on your next trip to Walt Disney World.” – Michaelyn
