Summary

The food quality is, in our estimation, just OK. Nevertheless, readers really seem to like Garden Grill; we think the retro- Disney setting and the characters are at least as much of a draw as the food. If you can’t get an Advance Reservation for one of the other character meals, this place is worth checking out.

Setting and Atmosphere

With the popular Soarin’ Around the World attraction nearby, the all-you-can-eat Garden Grill stays busy, even though the concept and the dining room have grown rather dated. Even so, it’s a classic: The floor revolves slowly as you peer down into the unseen side of scenes from Living with the Land, the Land Pavilion’s ride-through attraction (see page 523). At about the time you finish a meal, you’ve revolved once, past scenes of a desert, a rainforest, and a farm—an otherwise hidden view of inside the farmhouse. The constant crowing of a “rooster” and dog barks are questionable highlights.

Much more exciting for kids are the Disney characters—Mickey, Chip ’n’ Dale, Pluto, and others make stops along the inner wall of the circular restaurant, far enough away to be safe but close enough for good photos.

House Specialties

Grilled beef, chimichurri, turkey breast with stuffing and gravy, BBQ ribs, mashed potatoes, veggies, and salads made with ingredients from The Land’s greenhouses. Dessert is a berry shortcake with whipped cream. Plant-based options available on request.
