Destination Disney: Top 6 Disney Restaurants

For this week's Destination Disney with Heidi's Head, we are sharing our top 6 Disney Restaurants.  After looking at my list, I've decided that the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World is lacking in "good restaurants...."  Anyway... on with the list!

#1 Le Cellier  My hands down favorite restaurant is now Le Cellier at the Canada Pavilion in Epcot.  We ate here on our last trip for the first time and will most likely go back on each trip in the future!  To start, the pretzel bread was amazing!  But, the steak was to die for!  It was the best steak I've ever eaten.  I could almost cut it with a fork it was so tender and it melted in my mouth.  In fact, my mouth is watering now just thinking about it!

#2 California Grill  Another new restaurant on our last trip was the California Grill located on the top floor of the Contemporary Resort.  Again, I had the steak.  While it was very good, it was not as good as Le Cellier.  The Plant City Strawberry Salad was very tasty and big!  What I would change about the steak is the barbecue type sauce used on the steak.  The dessert was good too, but the best parts were the view of the WDW resort and watching "Wishes" from the rooftop!

#3 Carnation Cafe  Breakfast at the Carnation Cafe on Main Street, USA in Disneyland is out of this world!  The cast members were extra friendly here and the view of Main Street as the park is opening is so fun.  This is where I had the chance to meet Oscar Martinez in 2010.

#4 'Ohana  Last February when we ate at 'Ohana in the Polynesian Resort at WDW we were lucky to be celebrating our anniversary!  We were asked to dance while Kahula played his ukulele!  It was very romantic in a Disney type of way.  The view of Seven Seas Lagoon and the Magic Kingdom were a nice touch, but the atmosphere inside the restaurant was actually better.  The food was delicious and PLENTY!  The servers were very nice and we look forward to sharing this experience with our boys!

#5 Yak and Yeti  We've only eaten at Yak and Yeti once, but it still stays on the top of our list!  Located in Animal Kingdom, you can order Asian dishes.  Everything we had there was top notch.  I would love to get a reservation around 3:00 and watch the Jammin' Jungle Parade from the window next to our table!

#6 50's Prime Time Cafe  This restaurant has a very unique atmosphere that I've never experienced anywhere else and the food is really good too!  It's set in the 50's with black and white TVs on each table showing reruns of I Love Lucy, Leave it to Beaver, etc.  The servers make you "mind your manners" and aren't afraid to call you out if you don't behave!  I personally would suggest ordering the meatloaf and I've heard the PB&J shake is really good too!


  1. Love Yak and Yeti and 50s Prime Time! Good choices! 

  2. So I want to know what steak you got at Le Cellier.  We have an ADR there in September - and we've never been before. :)

  3. The "Le Cellier Mushroom Filet Mignon".  To die for!  I'm not a mushroom fan, at all!  But, I was a big girl and tried a bite with the mushrooms before I scraped them off and just went with the sauce that was left! :)  My hubby got the same thing and loved the mushrooms!!

  4. Yum! I love all your WDW choices!
