“Brunch at the Top” also features mini-desserts like macarons and chocolate truffles. Yum!

The restaurant has a very modern design, for those who have dined at night, but during the daytime, guests have the chance to truly take in the details of the design. The carpet was inspired by Disney Legend Mary Blair’s sketches, who created iconic Disney attraction characters such as “it’s a small world.”

Cost is $80 for 12 and up. Ages 3 to 11 can eat for $48. Reservations open December 16, and can be made by visiting or by calling 407-WDW-DINE.
