Make a reservation in advance for any of the Table Service restaurants at Magic Kingdom and take some of the stress out of your busy park day! These themed dining options each give you a chance to relax (in air conditioning) and enjoy some time away from the walking and the crowds. And as a particular bonus if you need additional help de-stressing, these restaurants are the only option for having a glass of wine or beer while in Magic Kingdom.
Be Our Guest
Be Our Guest Restaurant takes you inside the Beast’s Castle from Beauty and the Beast. In 2020 the restaurant began offering a 3-Course fix prixe meal at both lunch and dinner. While not guaranteed, The Beast has been known to make the rounds during the meal. While you’ll be seated in one of the three areas (the Ballroom, the infamous West Wing, and the Gallery), you are free to explore the rest of the rooms during your meal.
Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen
Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen is located in Adventureland. The restaurant takes the boat cruise humor and theming from The Jungle Cruise and applies it to the decor and cuisine. The menu allows you to order per item, and I find the vegetarian options to be the best in all of Magic Kingdom.
Cinderella’s Royal Table
To go inside Cinderella Castle, reserve a meal at Cinderella’s Royal Table. Dining is located on the second floor, with the experience beginning as you walk up a spiral staircase. During our 2016 visit, all of the children were given wands with pointy stars upon arrival. After eating significant amounts of sugar, they were encouraged to wave them in the air. Disney Princesses will once again be greeting guests in late February 2023.
Dining in Frontierland
Table Service in Frontierland includes Liberty Tavern, a colonial themed restaurant. It felt like home to a family that lives in Colonial Virginia, with Williamsburg as a local attraction. Just down the street takes you further west, to the Diamond Horseshoe. You can learn more about this restaurant (which is only open during the most crowded times) on my Old Time Adventures blog post.
Dining on Main Street
Tony’s Town Square diner is a convenient first or last stop in Magic Kingdom. The Italian menu and theming celebrate Lady & the Tramp’s dinner date. The Plaza Restaurant has castle views with a classic American menu and epic milkshakes. When the fireworks are scheduled for late in the evening, it’s our favorite spot to secure a late dining reservation to enjoy drinks and dessert before the show.
