The Crystal Palace is a Character Buffet that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. While you enjoy your meal Tigger, Pooh, Piglet and Eeyore visit the tables. The Crystal Palace is a large Restaurant located in the Magic Kingdom right off of Main Street. Reservations are suggested and I think it's a must since slots fill up very quickly especially for breakfast. We always make reservations for breakfast since it is one of our favorite meals of the day and the breakfast here is very good. I have eaten at other Disney buffets and this one is the best food quality, taste and service hands down. Every Disney vacation we make sure to have breakfast here at the Crystal Palace; our most recent visit was in February 2015.
You can't miss the Crystal Palace with it's beautiful Victorian structure and large porch. Check in with the hostess and give her your name. They call your pary and bring you inside to be seated. Inside the dining area is large with light colored walls and an open, airy feeling. The centerpiece of the dining room is the Tigger, Pooh, Eyeore and Piglet colorful topiaries at the entrance. There are several table throughout the dining room that can accomodate as small a party as two people up to whole families of 10 or more.
Liz is a huge Tigger fan and always has a breakfast here when she is in Disney. I ialways indulge her wish and agree to breakfast here when we visit Disney. The breakfast is always excellent with a large selectons of : Mickey Waffles, pancakes, eggs, bacon, potatoes, cereals, fruit, cheeses and assorted pastry.
Characters such as Tigger, Pooh, Eyeore and Piglet roam from table to table signing autographs and taking pictures with guests. Liz enjoys taking pictures with the characters more than any child I have seen. Her favorite character is Tigger but she has to hug all of them. She even told Piglet that she had just eaten her for breakfast much to Piglet horror.
$18.99 for adults and $10.99 for kids (3+yrs old) for breakfast.
Favorite Dish The Mickey Waffles here are very good and cooked perfectly. The eggs here are very good and it's hard to decide between fried, scrambled or an omlette. The bacon and sausage are tasty and cooked well. The fruit selection is good and the fruit is very fresh and delicious. I am always happy with my breakfast here and leave with a full stomach.
Liz loves here Mickey Waffles and enjoys sprinkling them with brown sugar and maple syrup for a tasty sweet treat. She has her own way of eating her Mickey Waffle: at the ears first so Mickey can't hear himself screaming....
The Artist's Palate is located at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa. This is their casual; quick service restaurant/take away. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner here and have a large selection of snacks, beverages and alcoholic items for purchase to enjoy here or back in your room. The decor here is very bright and colorful and their are plenty of seating options throughout the dining room.
Once you place your order; select a beverage of choice and pay; you are given a numbered plaque to place at your table of choice along with your receipt. A server will come with your food and take the plaque away. It is a simple and efficient system to get you fed and out to the parks in little time.
Liz and I have enjoyed many meals here as well as snacks; we usually only do breakfast here. They have some delicious items on the menu for breakfst, lunch and dinner that always taste fresh. My wife and I enjoy the Mickey Waffles. It is a nice sized portion of three smal Mickey Waffles with bacon. The Waffles are very good and filling but the only detraction is their serve imitation maple syrup(yuck). I have also had their Country Breakfast wrap which was quite good with eggs, peppers, potato, sausage and cheese in a wrap with salsa. They aslo make very good buttermilk biscuits.
I love ice cream and thought I would give Twistee Treat close to where I was staying a try. Altogether I must have been there about a dozen times either sitting in, sitting outside and using the drive through and sitting in the car. If you are use to the light Mr Whippy style of ice cream that starts to melt before you get out of the shop this is totally different. I would think that because of the warmer climate, a much thicker mix is used which takes longer to melt. I have tried some of the different cups, sundaes and cones but decided in the end that a simple large vanilla cone was just right. The staff were friendly, polite and it was a great experience. Open from 11am till 10.30pm. 11pm on Friday & Saturday.
Favorite Dish A large vanilla ice cream cone.
As I've probably mentioned before, one of the special things you can do while at Walt Disney World is to pick a few very special restaurants to enjoy your meals and dining with Disney characters is a very special thing to do. Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom park is not only beautiful architecturally but a wonderful place to eat breakfast, lunch or dinner buffet style. The very pleasant interior design is warm and welcoming and comfortable, there are always special flower arrangements or displays which follow the seasons. There is a very large variety of food choices for all meals served here, but the lunch and dinner offerings are really special, and everyone should find something they like.
Try the Mickey-shaped waffles for breakfast along with some of your favorite American breakfast classics. For lunch you will find everything from appetizers to salads, to entrees and all types of desserts. You'll have to try a little of everything in that department IF you have any space left in your stomach after you've had one of the following: citrus marinated flank steak, BBQ tenderloin, flame roasted chicken, Atlantic salmon, green Thai chicken curry, vegetable pasta, pizza, etc. I'm sure you'll have room for Chocolate Marble Cheesecake, Mango Flan, Double Chocolate Brownies, Tres Leches Cake, Apple Cobbler, Banana Bread Pudding with Bailey's Irish Cream Sauce, soft-serve ice cream, etc., etc.,

Favorite Dish You wouldn't particularly call the food here gourmet, but they do a very nice job of offering a well-rounded menu and very good food. Reservations are strongly recommended and I can tell you from experience you will definitely need reservations unless you are prepared to wait for a while to get in.
Disney characters from Winnie the Pooh and most all of Winnie the Pooh 's friends such as my favorite, "Tigger" they will come around to delight your children, and you too! Love those Mickey Waffles!!
How can you go to the USA, home of McD's and not pay a visit to the world's largest McDonalds!? In addition to the regular McDonalds menu, you can choose from a large variety of meals from the Bistro Gourmet menu.
There's a play place and arcade games to keep the kids amused.
Open 24 hours.
Mango Joe's Café Ole is one of the many restaurants/café you can find inside SeaWorld and it is located near Shamu's Happy Harbor.
The food and the service was quite good especially if you're hungry and you spent a full day in SeaWorld :)! You can eat in the patio or indoor.
Favorite Dish I can suggest to taste the following dishes: Combo Fajita Sandwich: tender marinated meats freshly grilled and full of flavor. As dessert you can eat a pudding and drinks coke.
located in the thornton park area of downtown orlando the wildside bar & grill is a fun place to have lunch or dinner. known for their huge barbecue sandwiches they also have a varied menu offering meat, chicken, and seafood. a fun and inexpensive restaurant.
Best wings in the world! Love this place, great food, great atmosphere, cheap food and drinks. Lots of large TV's showing all kinds of sport so if the big game's on this is the place to come. Highly recommended.
Food was good but the restaurant had a very funny atmosphere. It was like all the staff had just been told they were being made redundant. Everyone was miserable, some seemed to be having arguments with each other. While the food was good it was also very over priced. I guess that's due to its location?? but saying that not far away is UNO bar and grill which was excellent with very good food and good price's. There are loads of places to eat in Orlando so avoid this one and go elsewhere.
Shake-N-Steak is a chain restaurant found throughout most of the Midwest & the Southern States. Luckily they are also in Florida with several locations in Orlando. This makes a great break from the "Disney"fare that abounds in Orlando. They serve simple American food for lunch & breakfast. Feeding a family of 5 in DisneyWorld is no trivial matter and going to this place makes everyone happy and budget-conscious.
Favorite Dish I love their grilled chicken sandwiches for its simplicity and the fact that they can do it my way.
Their milkshakes and malts are very tasty too.
We had woken up early and were headed out to catch our cruise ship. We decided to grab breakfast on the way out of Orlando. When I suggested IHOP, Liz was all for it. The IHOP was pretty large and we were seated immediately. The service here was quick and friendly. As always were were very happy with our food and were able to head off to catch the boat with plenty of extra time.
Favorite Dish Liz had her favorite the Cinnamon Bun French Toast and an Ice Tea. I ordered the Strawberry French Toast and an Iced Tea. We're never dissapointed by the food here, it is consistenly good at all IHOP locations we have visited.
The Old Port Royale Food Court is a cafeteria style dining experience for guests staying at the Caribbean Beach Resort. There are plenty of tables and we always found a seat. The soda fountain is elf serve and has a nice selection of assorted sodas. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. There are various sections to get different types of food such as pizza, sandwiches, chicken etc. After getting your food you pay at a central cashier. The prices are quite reasonable and it's a fash way to grab a meal.
Liz and I came here for breakfast, pick up our souvenir refillable mug and get some refills throuighout our stay.
Favorite Dish Liz had the Mickey Waffle with Bacon for breakfast. She loves her Mickey Wafle and it's always a pleasure to watch her smile as she devours Mickey. I had the Bounty Breakfast which is eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes, biscuit and french toast. The breakfast was too much for me and I wound up leaving alot of it on my plate.
The waffle with bacon was an affordable $6.69
The Bounty Breakfast was $8.29
The souvenir refillable mug was $12.49 plus tax.
