There are over 200 Walt Disney World places to choose from when you want a bite to eat, including 90 table service restaurants, so the decision can be quite tricky.

With several different palettes and preferences, choosing a Disney restaurant can be tricky. To make those choices a bit easier, I came up with what (in my opinion) are the best Walt Disney World table service restaurants to visit in 2020.

Remember, dining reservations are highly recommended as most restaurants located throughout the theme parks and resorts can be tricky to get into.

Of course, this table service restaurant is going to be at the top of my list. One of the most popular and unique restaurants located on Walt Disney World property is San Angel Inn.

While dining at the Mexican restaurant, located in Epcot, you will get an up-close and personal look at the Gran Fiesta Tour while surrounded by the beautiful atmosphere.

Victoria & Albert’s

Victoria & Albert’s is located in Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, near Magic Kingdom.

To this day, this is still one of the hardest table service restaurants to get a reservation for. Both breakfast and dinner at this restaurant is divine and is a must-try.

Breakfast is a character breakfast where you can meet Stitch, Lilo, Mickey, and Pluto during your experience. The meal is served family-style and consists of Mickey waffles, sausage, bacon, eggs, fresh fruit, and more!

Dinner is also served family-style, but this meal isn’t a character dining experience. You will enjoy a variety of dishes such as teriyaki noodles (my personal favorite), sweet-n-sour chicken, pork dumplings, Szechuan sirloin steak, ‘Ohana pineapple-coconut bread and more.

‘Ohana is located inside Disney’s Polynesian Resort, near Magic Kingdom.

Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue

This hilarious and high-energy show is something the whole family will enjoy, guaranteed. Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue is a MUST every single Disney trip.

The show is one-of-a-kind and engaging while the food is finger-lickin’ good!

In between the scenes of the show, you can chow down on buckets of all-you-care-to-enjoy fried chicken and smoked BBQ pork ribs, as well as a tossed green salad, baked beans, fresh-baked cornbread and strawberry shortcake.

Hoop-Dee-Do Musical Revue is located at the Fort Wilderness Campground.

Maya Grill

This Mexican-style table service is one of my favorites, and I feel it is very underrated. You can typically get a dining reservation the same day, which sometimes you don’t even really need (though I still recommend getting one just to secure a table).

Maya Grill is a table service restaurant located inside Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort. After dining here, take a stroll around the resort. The atmosphere is extremely peaceful and a great way to wind down and relax to end the night.

Yachtsman Steakhouse
