Of the park's six full-service restaurants, Be Our Guest (dinner) in Fantasyland is the best, followed by Liberty Tree Tavern in Liberty Square and The Plaza Restaurant on Main Street.

These two restaurants' menus have the most variety within the Magic Kingdom. Be Our Guest serves a tasty tuna niçoise salad (with seared tuna), a grilled-ham-and-cheese sandwich that’s better than you’d expect, and a juicy braised-pork entree. Columbia Harbour House’s offerings include lobster rolls, grilled salmon, and a delicious hummus sandwich on multigrain bread. Beyond these, the Magic Kingdom’s fast-food eateries are undistinguished, not to mention about twice as expensive as McDonald’s, for about the same quality.

A good rule of thumb with Magic Kingdom dining is that most counter service restaurants are the same, with the exceptions of Be Our Guest Restaurant (lunch) and Columbia Harbour House, which are the best in the park.

Food Carts

Food carts come and go in Magic Kingdom, but in most lands you'll be able to find bottled beverages, popcorn, and ice cream novelties. Special items include turkey legs (Frontierland), churros, and egg rolls (Adventureland). Don't worry, you're never far from a food cart in Magic Kingdom. While these carts move from time to time (that's why they have wheels), we do try to keep up with them on our comprehensive list of Magic Kingdom food spots.
