All Disney Deluxe Resorts offer at least two table service restaurants, and Moderate Resorts all offer one. That's a lot of choices and we are still far from visiting them all; but today, we are going to list our favorite resort restaurants (so far) and why!
The Grand Floridian Cafe-The Grand Floridian is also home to the most restaurants of any Disney Deluxe, several of which are signature restaurants. But if we don't want to spend that much, but still enjoy an elegant meal that captures the spirit of the Grand Floridian, we head to the Grand Floridian Cafe with it's airy, Victorian décor and whimsical touches! We especially enjoy visiting here for lunch and ordering the dessert platter, which is one dessert credit but offers several choices! It's a great value and so good!
Chef Mickeys-This Contemporary Resort restaurant is really popular and for good reason! We think the food here is some of the best that a character buffet on property has to offer. Plus, we get to see Mickey and the gang, and the Monorail is only feet away!
Boatwrights-A hidden gem, Port Orleans Riverside's Boatwrights is themed after a ship builders shop and serves up some famous southern style dishes with a New Orleans flavor! The unique southern menu and warm atmosphere makes it one of our faves; and we especially encourage you to try the warm Pecan Pie and Bananas Foster!
Trails End-This Fort Wilderness restaurant is another hidden gem which offers a homecooked buffet in a rustic, log cabin where your drink comes in a Mason jar and part of the buffet is served up on an old fashioned stove! The cozy atmosphere makes us feel like we're enjoying a Sunday meal back at home and it's one of the best values in regards to price at WDW!
So what do you think? Are any of these resorts your favorites? Why or why not?
