There are plenty of dining choices in Fantasyland, and the first kiosk you will come to next to the mad tea party teacups is the Cheshire Café. Here is where you can grab a pretzel or a Cheshire Cat tail pastry or a choice of hot and cold beverages including slushies.
Moving further round into Fantasyland, next to The many adventures of Winnie the Pooh, you can find Storybook Treats, another kiosk specializing in ice-creams, sundaes floats, and drinks. They always offer a special limited item, like this Peter Pan float, so grab it while you can!
Right next door is the Friars Nook, another kiosk that is open for breakfast and lunch. In the morning they serve breakfast sandwiches and different bowls that usually come with tots, and for lunch, they serve hot dogs, Mac & Cheese, or buffalo chicken and they all come served with tots. I like that this location is offering something other than the usual fries, so come and grab some tots from Friars Nook.
We now head to Cinderella’s castle, where you can find Cinderellas royal table. There is a reason why this is one of the most popular restaurants in all of Walt Disney World because you’re eating inside the castle and as this is a character dining restaurant, you will dine with Disney Princesses. It can be expensive with breakfast costing over $60 per head and lunch and dinner can be as much as $80 dollars a head, but I guess that’s the cost of dining with royalty. There are plenty of dishes to choose from, like steak, fish, or duck for lunch and dinner and baked quiche, French toast, or a traditional breakfast in the morning. There are also plenty of plant-based options at all mealtimes. Cinderellas Royal Table is notorious for being difficult to get a reservation, so I would suggest booking a table as soon as you possibly can!
Our next restaurant is besides It’s a Small World and is the Pinocchio Village Haus. This quick-service restaurant has a nice quaint setting, with plenty of decorations featuring characters from Pinocchio. They have a nice selection of flatbreads, Caesar salads, and chicken strips along with plenty of sides like breadsticks, garlic knots, and soup.
Now, let’s take a look at the dining locations in new fantasyland starting with the Be Our Guest restaurant. This Beauty and the Beast Restaurant is obviously inspired by French cuisine and has a fixed menu for lunch and dinner. For $62 for adults and $37 for kids, you can choose from appetizers such as a meat and cheese board, French Onion soup, or lobster bisque, and for your entrée, you can choose from steaks, scallops, chicken or pork tenderloin, as well as a nice selection of desserts. Being a French restaurant, They also have an extensive wine menu along with plenty of other beverages. This is a huge restaurant with three dining areas, and during dinner, you may come across the beast roaming in his study. Similar to Cinderellas royal table this is a popular restaurant, so make your reservations early.
If you head over the bridge further into New Fantasyland, you will come to another Beauty and the Beast-themed dining location, Gaston’s Tavern. Here is where you can find the popular LeFou’s Brew, which is an alcohol-free frozen apple juice with a hint of toasted marshmallow and topped off with passion fruit and mango foam, It’s delicious and can also be purchased with a souvenir stein. Gaston’s Tavern also serves warm cinnamon rolls and the Grey Stuff cupcake as well as plenty of other beverages.
We finally end the Fantasyland dining locations with Prince Eric’s Village Market, a kiosk selling snacks and drinks. You can find jumbo pretzels with a beer cheese sauce, huge Turkey legs, cookies, fruit, and the mermaid donut.
So plenty of amazing dining locations within Fantasyland. Let me know your favorite restaurants and dishes in a comment down below!
