Menu items change often but include waffles and pancakes layered with fresh fruit for breakfast; prime rib; slow-roasted pork, and peel-and-eat shrimp for dinner; Thai curry chicken; grilled vegetables with balsamic glaze, pasta with wild mushrooms and chicken, shrimp, and a sundae bar. We love the fresh salads - more than a dozen - from a simple green salad to one with papaya, frisee, and arugula.
Breakfast $27 (child $15), lunch $30 (child $16), dinner $42 (child $20).
The best dining value in the Magic Kingdom—go hungry and fill up. The food is consistently good, but eating seems somehow secondary to the desire to get lots of photos with Pooh and his pals.

Setting and Atmosphere
A breakfast or lunch visit to The Crystal Palace surrounds you with cool sunlight and decorative plants, along with a large, easy-to-navigate buffet area. The restaurant’s white steel supports, arched ceilings, and glass roof (especially the atrium) are tributes to its namesake, built to house London’s 1851 Great Exhibition—the first world’s fair—and among the first structures to use plate glass in large quantities. Because of all the windows, the setting is less distinctive for dinner after dark.
The buffet items change often but may include waffles and pancakes layered with fresh fruit for breakfast and, for lunch and dinner, flank steak, roasted chicken, and barbecued pork tenderloin; Thai curry mussels; grilled vegetables with balsamic glaze; pasta with wild mushrooms and chicken; shrimp; and a sundae bar. The salads are exceptionally fresh. Kids get their own buffet with macaroni and cheese and chicken fingers.
