Whether you’re looking for food and drink inspo for your upcoming trip or if you’re just hungry right now and looking at photos of food at Disney sounds fun, we’re here for you. Either way, bookmark this page so you can come back to it when it comes time to plan! You won’t want to miss these if you can help it.

Just be warned, you’ll probably be booking a trip just to eat all the food by the end of this post.

1. Cold Brew Black Caf (Kat Saka’s Kettle, Hollywood Studios)

The Cold Brew Black Caf at Hollywood Studios - cold brew with Cocoa Puffs

As if we needed another reason to hang out in Batuu, Kat Saka’s Kettle offers you Joffrey’s Cold Brew coffee topped with Sweet Cream Cheese creamer and Chocolate Puffs. Order it with Godiva chocolate liqueur for a delicious adult twist! Our only complaint is that you can’t bottle it to take home and drink every single day until your next trip.

2. Tony’s Garlic Bread for the Table (Tony’s Town Square, Magic Kingdom)

The Tony's Garlic Bread for the table at Magic Kingdom - slices of toasted and buttered ciabatta bread covered in cheese and garnished with parsley stacked high on a plate.

Tucked away immediately to the right of the entrance of Magic Kingdom, so close you almost miss it, is Tony’s Town Square Restaurant. Toasted ciabatta with roasted garlic butter and parmesan fonduta. We don’t even know what Fonduta is, but we know you fon-don’t wanna miss it. Have we gone too far?

3. Strawberry Dream Rossini (Via Napoli, EPCOT)

The Strawberry Dream Rossini at Via Napoli at EPCOT - a peach bellini in a champagne glass next to a strawberry rossini in a martini glass. The rossini has a strawberry popsicle resting inside as garnish.

Home to one of our absolute favorite pizzas at Disney World (the Carciofi Signature Pie!), Via Napoli wowed us with this summer-y, fruity concoction: Strawberry puree and Prosecco served with a strawberry popsicle. The whole thing is kinda like a fizzy, adult popsicle now that we think about it. Extra refreshing on a hot day! 

4. Braised Wild Boar Tenderloin (Jiko, Animal Kingdom Lodge)

The Wild Boar Tenderloin appetizer at Jiko at Animal Kingdom Lodge. Three slices of tenderloin in a red sauce with white creamy sauce in it.

This starter lives rent-free in our heads (and our taste buds).

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: Jiko is hands down one of our top three favorite dining spots on property, and this is an appetizer we will never get boar’d of (heyo!).

Served on creamy pap and garnished with chakalaka tomatoes and a herb-smoked oil, the tenderloin is unbelievably tender and well seasoned. Don’t let the unfamiliarity throw you off, this dish isn’t as intimidating as you’d think.

And we’ve only eaten this recently because we eat it all the time. It MIGHT be our #1 dish on property…

5. Duck Confit Gnocchi (Topolino’s Terrace, Riviera Resort)

The Duck Confit Gnocchi at Topolino's. The gnocchi are topped with a creamy white pesto, pine nuts and small pieces of duck confit.

Topolino’s Terrace at the Riviera Resort is worth the visit for the rooftop views alone, especially at sunset. But we aren’t going just for the views, we’re going to get our hands back on the gnocchi appetizer.

Served with duck confit, pesto bianco and garnished with kale and pine nuts, this is probably the best gnocchi we’ve ever eaten in our whole lives. Definitely splittable amongst a smaller group…but you aren’t going to want to!

6. Casa Beer (Morocco, EPCOT)

During your visit to Morocco at EPCOT, make sure to swing by the walk-up bar at Spice Road Table and order yourself a Casa Beer.

It’s a pretty light lager, but that’s what makes it perfect for a hot day and a leisurely stroll around the World Showcase. It has a subtle honey undertone, a fresh take on otherwise very familiar malty flavors.

If you’d like to sip this while stationary, cross straight over to the shaded plaza, or find yourself a spot on the other side of the outdoor patio partition at Spice Road Table. You’ll get a nice lagoon-front view under the trees! Bliss.

7. Steakhouse 71 Stack Burger (Steakhouse 71, Contemporary Resort)

We’ve talked about this one before, and with good reason. It still holds up!

Made with a signature blend of beef, American cheese, red onion and housemade pickles on a Brioche bun, it’s an elevated take on an American classic. This burger is easily the best burger anywhere on Disney property, and we think about it way too often.

We recommend taking a midday break from the hustle and bustle of Magic Kingdom and jumping on the monorail to this spot for lunch. The white tablecloths might make you pause, but we promise everyone eating here is also wearing their Mickey ears and regular ol’ theme park couture.
