Dining at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa

By Dave Shute

For the first page of this review of Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, click here.


Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort has the best adult dining of any single Disney resort, some fun options for kids, and easy access to even more great dining via the monrial at the Polynesian Village and Contemporary Resort.

All but one of the table service options is in the main building.

Cinderella and Her Court 1900 Park Fare from

On the first floor is 1900 Park Fare, where at breakfast you can find Mary Poppins, Alice in Wonderland, the Mad Hatter, Tigger and Winnie the Pooh, and at dinner Cinderella and her homies–Prince Charming, Lady Tremaine, Anastasia, Drizella, and the Fairy Godmother.

From our book, The easy Guide to Your Walt Disney World Visit 2019:

More on 1900 Park Fare is here.

Between breakfast and dinner, 1900 Park Fare hosts the Wonderland Tea Party.

This event, only for children 4-12 (parents leave after drop-off), includes fun with Alice in Wonderland characters, decorating cupcakes and such.

Around the corner is another of the resort’s five table service restaurants, the Grand Floridian Cafe. Alone among the Grand Floridian table service offerings, there’s nothing special here, so it can be a quite easy reservation to get.

Tea Room Menu at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort from

Centered at the back of the lobby is the Garden View Tea Room with its Perfectly Princess Tea Party, which is I suppose a steal at $333 for a parent and a princess–or more specifically (there’s more fine print to this offer than any other Disney World thingy) one guest 10 or older, and one guest 3-9 years old:

I will have to borrow a princess (and $333) and do this someday.

At the back center of the second floor is the bar Mizner’s Lounge. On the lobby side of Mizner’s you’ll commonly find a band in the evenings.

Victoria and Alberts Disney's Grand Floridian Resort from

On the left is the stunning Victoria and Albert’s–some of the best dining you’ll ever enjoy.

From our book, The easy Guide to Your Walt Disney World Visit 2019:

(Find even more details in this review)…

…and further back, Citricos, a two-credit signature dining venue. From our book, The easy Guide to Your Walt Disney World Visit 2019:

Downstairs, outside, and around the corner you’ll find one of the best counter-service venues in a deluxe resort, the Gasparilla Island Grill. (Menu here.)

Gasparilla Grill has both indoor and outdoor seating, and the outdoor seating is popular during the Magic Kingdom fireworks.

Narcoossees from

Near the boat dock is the remaining table service restaurant, the two-credit Narcoossee’s.

Narcoossee Menu from

Among the three top dining options at the Grand Floridian–Narcoossee’s, Citricos, and Victoria and Albert’s–Narcoossee’s has the most familiar menu and the hardest name to spell. From our book, The easy Guide to Your Walt Disney World Visit 2019:

There’s more dining at each of the pools.
