What’s better than a great meal with a great view? In fact, Disney has some of the best to offer. Here are few to contemplate:
California Grill; Disney’s Contemporary Resort
The drop-dead-gorgeous setting on the 15th floor of Disney’s Contemporary Resort enjoys Disney’s best view—period. From its lofty heights diners can see the Magic Kingdom® Park, the sparkling Seven Seas Lagoon, and, best of all, Wishes fireworks.
Sanaa; Animal Kingdom Villas – Kidani Village
This charmer of a restaurant has the advantage of full-length picture windows overlooking the savanna with views of the resort’s grasslands filled with hundreds of roaming exotic animals.
Capa; Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World® Resort
This lovely restaurant, located at the Four Seasons Resort Orlando within Golden Oaks at Walt Disney World Resort, has spectacular views on offer. From its lofty perch on the 17th floor, guests can partake in not only the restaurant’s Spanish-influenced cuisine, but also the sweeping views and evening fireworks.
La Hacienda de San Angel; Epcot®
La Hacienda has the advantage of a prime location on the World Showcase Lagoon. Here you’ll find excellent, traditionally-made Mexican food and, if luck has it, a prime view of Epcot’s nighttime spectacular, Illuminations.
Fulton’s; Downtown Disney® Area, Walt Disney World Resort
Dine on fresh seafood in a docked Mississippi riverboat either outdoors under the stars or indoor dining, but if it’s prime seating you want, ask to sit in the bow of the boat for perfect sunset views.
Ariel’s Grotto; Disney California Adventure® Park
There’s outdoor seating if you so desire with fantastic views of Paradise Pier along with a parade of Disney princesses during your meal.
Napa Rose; Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel® & Spa
If you love a view of kitchen action, consider the restaurant’s Chef’s Counter accommodating up to eight people with two seatings per evening. At the counter are three menu options: the regular dining room menu, a four-course Vintner’s Table pre-fixe menu that changes weekly . . . or simply have Chef prepare a multi-course meal according to his whim and your taste. Feel free to chat up the kitchen staff, asking any questions that might come to mind.
