Disney’s Contemporary Resort, California Grill (menu)(allergy menu)
It overlooks Magic Kingdom and has the best damn fireworks viewing/dining experience at Walt Disney World! And the food is damn good, too. Arguably the best dining experience period based on the proximity of the number 1 vacation spot in the world. – Pat Neistat, Notclub33 Co-Owner
It’s hands down the best dining experience I’ve had on Disney property. The servers are extremely knowledgeable and can pair the perfect glass of wine to your tastes and the meal, the food is perfectly prepared, and if you get reservations anywhere near the 8:00 hour, you’ll get views of both Epcot and Magic Kingdom fireworks. If I can’t be cynical about something, it must be amazing, and California Grill fits that bill…along with one for about $250 plus tip, but it’s worth it. Bobby Burchins, Cynical Disney Owner
‘Ohana, at the Polynesian Village Resort, has a delicious Hawaiian-inspired dinner, beautiful view, amazing service, and you will leave with a full belly. Treat yourself to a fruity drink and a couple more servings of dumplings and grilled shrimp–it’s sooo worth it! – Mark and Laura Schmitz, Lifetime Disney fans and parkgoers
We love a few resort restaurants, Olivia’s Old Key West (Buttermilk Fried Chicken) Sanaa at Animal Kingdom Lodge, but our Favorite has to be Ohana’s at Polynesian Resort atmosphere wonderful especially If you can be there during the fireworks overlooking the Magic Kingdom and the grilled steak, and shrimp wonderful but the Best is the Bread Pudding, save room for that! – Tom and Laura Alagna, DVC Members and AP Holders
Disney Springs, The Landing, Morimoto Asia (menu)
Morimoto Asia isn’t AT a resort (walking distance from Saratoga Springs though) it’s wonderful food – I’m a sucker for sushi, if you go here order the sake flight for sure. Now, if I have to get technical and pick a spot at a resort I’ll just say go anywhere at the Polynesian or Animal Kingdom Lodge – you can’t miss at either. – Steve Rhodes, Notclub33 Co-Owner *Editor’s note: Don’t freak out. It’s close enough.
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, Trader Sams Tiki Terrace (menu)
Not gonna lie, walking to the Counter Service at Pop Century, Art of Animation, or Caribbean Beach Resort (etc) to get a pizza after a long-ass day at the park is well worth it, just like getting a cheap kid’s meal is. BUT, if I didn’t recommend Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto / Tiki Terrace at THE Polynesian Resort, you’d know something was wrong. Splitting a few apps can really help soak of some of the (tiki tiki tiki tiki tiki) rum. – Becky Wells, Notclub33 contributor and AP Holder
