Epcot Dining…Beyond the Park!

As one of the four Disney World theme parks, Epcot is a driving force for the foodie element of your trip…with festivals and a multitude of dining locations, one will never go hungry while touring this park! While you can find amazing dining in all the theme parks, nothing compares to the number of restaurants available to you in Epcot.  The number of table service meals inside each of the parks is Magic Kingdom with 6, Hollywood Studios with 5, Animal Kingdom with 4, and Epcot with a whopping 17 (not including 2 additional locations set to open later in 2019)!

Even with that many to choose from, more options for an “Epcot” restaurant can be found just outside the park in the Epcot Resort area, just a 5-15-minute walk from the International Gateway entrance in World Showcase.  With even more options, there is truly something for everyone.

The resorts you will visit to access these dining options include:  The Yacht, The Beach Club, and Boardwalk Resorts. The Swan and Dolphin Resorts are non-Disney resorts, but are still an option.  Note: The Swan and Dolphin do NOT take the dining plan or Magic Bands for payment.

The chart below shows the table service dining options available to you in these areas.  Remember, this does not include snack windows and quick service locations.

 

Also keep in mind, all these additional restaurants are just a quick 15-minute boat ride from Hollywood Studios.  So, while the options may be limited in the Studios, these restaurants are easily accessible to add 8 more dining options to this park day.

When you are planning out your dining reservations with your Me and the Mouse Travel Specialist, add these to the list of potential dining locations for your family to enjoy!  Remember advanced dining reservations open for our guests at 180 days before your vacation begins, so have them planned out early to have the optimal chance to book your favorites.
