One of the best parts of a Disney World trip is the FOOD! You’ve probably seen a million pictures of Instagram-worthy sweets and treats, but there’s so much more to eat at Disney World. And there’s still plenty of places to grab amazing eats at Disney World right now! Today we’re going to take a look at those dining locations currently open at Magic Kingdom and review our favorite snack & dining options.
Favorite Snack & Dining Options In Magic Kingdom
We are going to break down the dining locations currently open based on snacks and meals! As of right now, the dining locations that are currently open in Magic Kingdom include the following. Keep in mind, this list can and will change.
First up: SNACKS!

Can you imagine a trip to the Magic Kingdom without a Mickey pretzel, hot fresh popcorn, or a turkey leg? I know I can’t! Here’s our top 3 snack picks in Magic Kingdom that are currently open right now, along with recommendations on where to save and where to splurge:
Dole Whip from Aloha Isle
For a treat to cool you off in the Florida heat, stop on over at Aloha Isle where you’ll find Dole Whip – that incredible mix of vanilla and pineapple flavored soft-serve that can only be found at Disney World. I personally stop here every time to grab Dole Whip, it can’t be beat!
- Save: Pineapple Dole Whip Cup, $4.99
- Splurge: Get it in the souvenir Tiki Bowl! $9.99
Cinnamon Rolls from Gaston’s Tavern
These are not just your average cinnamon rolls. No, these are as large as the man the tavern is named for. These are EXTRA large, ooey gooey, melt in your mouth cinnamon rolls. Countless make-at-home recipes abound, but there’s nothing like having the real thing at the park. Pair it with a glass of LeFou’s Brew for a truly over-the-top sweet treat.
- Save: Cinnamon Roll, $5.99 – big enough to split!
- Splurge: LeFou’s Brew in the Souvenir Stein, $12.99
Waffles at Sleepy Hollow
If your sweet tooth really needs a fix, try any of the waffles or funnel cakes from Sleepy Hollow. My personal favorite is the fresh fruit waffle sandwich, which comes slathered in chocolate hazelnut spread and stuffed to bursting with fresh fruit. Totally indulgent while also getting your daily fill of fruits.
- Save: Mickey Waffle with Powdered Sugar, $5.79
- Splurge: Sweet and Spicy Chicken Waffle Sandwich, $10.49
Just looking for a quick place to nab a to-go snack or a coffee? Head to Main Street Bakery (better known as Starbucks) for some familiar favorites, or stop at the Liberty Square Market for a quick to-go snack to tide you over between meals.
Next up: FULL MEALS!
- Be Our Guest Restaurant
- Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe
- Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen
- Liberty Tree Tavern
- Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe
- Pinocchio Village Haus
- The Plaza Restaurant
- Tony’s Town Square Restaurant
Sure, we’d all love to fill our bellies full of cinnamon rolls, pretzels and Dole Whip, but at some point you’ve gotta have a real meal! Magic Kingdom has plenty of great quick service and table service restaurant choices that are open right now. The best news? It’s now much easier to get into table service (i.e. sit down) restaurants since crowds are at an all-time low! Here are our favorite picks of the restaurants that are currently open at Magic Kingdom:
Named for the restaurant where Lady and the Tramp had their famous spaghetti-kiss moment, Tony’s has a wide variety of Italian food that’s sure to please your entire group. There’s a little something for everyone, and even the pickiest of eaters are likely to find something they like!
If you’re really hungry, stop in and try the Thanksgiving-themed family-style meal at Liberty Tree Tavern. All dishes are served family-style (one large portion brought to the table), and are bottomless. This was some of the best pot roast I’ve had in my life, and their mac and cheese was perfect after a long day of walking the parks!
Pecos Bill is underrated, and therefore less crowded, than other restaurants. You’ll find a southwest-style menu along with some traditional American favorites like burgers. They’ve also got some great Halloween-themed specials going on right now that will definitely bring some seasonal flare to your meal!
