Outdoor dining has gained popularity over the past year and Walt Disney World has no shortage of locations! If you are looking for a Walt Disney World outdoor dining location, be sure to check out one of the following table service restaurants below! Click on the restaurant name for the menu! Keep in mind that although I reference lunch and dinner menu items, many of these locations also serve breakfast!
Spice Road Table is one of the best outdoor locations in Epcot. This small plate and specialty beverage restaurant has 120 outdoor seats on World Showcase Lagoon in the Morocco pavilion. Be sure to try the Hummus Fries!
At Rose and Crown you can dine on the outdoor patio to get your fix of British Fish, Chips and beer at this local neighborhood pub atmosphere in the United Kingdom pavilion.
Head to the Italy pavilion for outdoor dining at Tutto Italia. You can feast on traditional American Italian fare while under umbrellas in the middle of a piazza or town square. Be sure to save room for the Tiramisu for dessert!
If you’re looking for Italian (or to have your own Lady and Tramp moment) you can dine outdoors overlooking Main Street U.S.A. at Tony’s Town Square near the entrance of Magic Kingdom. Be sure to watch for Hidden Mickey’s in your meatballs!
Although Brown Derby Lounge does not take reservations it definitely deserves a spot on this list since you can order Brown Derby favorites from a modified menu including the famous Cobb Salad and a variety of traditional drinks!
Nomad Lounge, attached to Tiffins is by far my favorite place to be outdoors at Walt Disney World. It is set on a wrap around porch with a quiet and serene overlook of trees and Discovery River. Sometimes it’s easy to forget that you are in the middle of a theme park! PRO TIP: you can sometimes see the character floatillas pass by from this location!
You can sit at an outdoor table along the Boardwalk and enjoy the sights and sounds that it has to offer while selecting a fine wine from an extensive list and savoring the perfect Italian dish for you at Trattoria al Forno at Disney’s Boardwalk Resort.
Legend has it that Olivia Farnsworth had an open invitation to those who smelled her cooking to come inside and eat. she eventually opened her own cafe. If you’re craving some island cooking then be sure to check out Olivia’s at Disney’s Old Key West Resort. There are several tables at the Hospitality House near the boat dock.
Geyser Point at Wilderness Lodge Resort doesn’t take advanced dining reservations but it is one of the top outdoor dining locations. The entire restaurant is outdoors and serves up sandwiches, wings and seafood with fantastic views of Bay Lake. PRO TIP: Eat here at sunset for beautiful views or late at night and you may see the Electrical Water Pageant!
Three Bridges Bar and Grill is also completely outdoors and on top of Lago Dorado at Coronado Springs Resort’s and is complete with fire tables. This restaurant does not take advanced dining reservations but it is an excellent dinner choice with a wide variety of sharables, sandwiches, salads and entrees.
