When it comes to dining, Walt Disney World has an abundance of dining options which can make choosing those table service restaurants a hard task. I've put together the top five table service restaurants in the Walt Disney World resort using a variety of factors like popularity, themes, atmosphere, and food quality. Some of these restaurants are very popular and are among the best Disney World restaurants so it is recommended to always get a reservation for any table service restaurant!

1. Be Our Guest in Magic Kingdom
This makes the top of our best Disney World restaurants list due to the amazingly accurate theming of the beloved Beauty and the Beast movie. This restaurant is set inside Beast's castle and each dining room transports you to the movie whether you are in the Beast's chambers or the ballroom where Belle wore that iconic yellow gown. Keep in mind that this restaurant offers quick service for breakfast and lunch before transforming into a table service option for dinner with an entirely different menu. This is the only place in Walt Disney World where you can meet the Beast which is a plus for many guests. Enjoy French dishes and callbacks to the movie like the “Grey Stuff mentioned in the Be Our Guest song. Make sure to get your dining reservation as early as possible- this is on the hardest places to get a dining reservation in Walt Disney World!
Pros: great atmosphere and theme, quality food, kid friendlyl
Cons: hard to get a reservation, not guaranteed to get the popular ‘ballroom' seating
2. Tiffins in Animal Kingdom
Tiffins in Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park is a great dining experience for guests with diverse taste buds. This restaurant offers a variety of foods with African, South American, and Asian flair. They also offer specialty wine, beer, and cocktails rooted in the same cultured foods. One of their most popular dishes is the fried octopus appetizers which is definitely food for the adventurous eater. No formal attire required- casual park clothes will be just fine. Make sure to take a look at the decor while you dine. This restaurant is filled with sketch books, artifacts, and indigenous art found by Imagineers as they researched Animal Kingdom's initial design. The combination of great food and Disney centered design makes it a great choice for our best Disney World restaurants list.
Pros: diverse food options, great decor for Disney history buffs
Cons: above average cost, not great for picky eaters
3. Rose & Crown in Epcot
This classic English style pub and dining experience is a great mixture of casual dining and great food. Enjoy traditional British fare like fish ‘n' chips, bangers and mash, and shepard's pie. Children will feel totally welcome here which is the norm for any table service restaurant inside the Walt Disney World theme parks. The outside dining offers great views of the World Showcase Lagoon and offers a popular dining package for viewing the nighttime spectaculars at Epcot.
Pros: casual dining, great food, dining packages offered
Cons: dining packages are costly, can get crowded
4. Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo in Hollywood Studios
Well, this may be cheating a little bit since it's technically not considered table service but I couldn't resist putting this on the top list for table service restaurants at Disney World. While this technically isn't considered table service, the food is such high quality that it deserves a spot on the list. You can find this galactic dining option inside Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge and it even offers mobile ordering to make getting that farm fresh food even easier. Don't forget to try dessert!
Pros: great food, themed dining
Cons: extremely crowded, no waited on service
5. Victoria and Albert's at Disney's Grand Floridan Resort
You can't have a top five list of best table service restaurants at Disney World without including Victoria and Albert's. This exclusive restaurant is geared for adults only. In fact, children under 10 aren't even allowed in the dining room! This is definitely an option for adults looking to celebrate a special event like a birthday or anniversary. The food at this restaurant is remarkable and has earned this restaurant the AAA Five Diamond Award for years. Add the harpist and option of dining at the exclusive Chef's table and this becomes one magical experience. Formal attire is recommended but ties are optional for the men.
Pros: top fine dining option in the area, great food, beautiful atmosphere
Cons: extremely high priced, not child friendly
