Top 5 Places to Eat at Disney

As you know, I love all things Disney. And Disney Springs is no exception! Of course, we love all of the Walt Disney World theme parks, but sometimes, you just need a relaxing day of shopping and eating, and Disney Springs is absolutely perfect for that plan. In the last few years, this area has experienced quite the revitalization and has transformed into one of the best places in Orlando to spend time with family and friends. We have had the wonderful opportunity to experience a lot of what Disney Springs has to offer, and I thought it was time to assemble some of my favorites into one post, so you can find my recommendations quickly and easily! Now, as a caveat, this list is in no particular order. The locations that I am recommending each serve a unique purpose and are great for different occasions.

2. Brunch at Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin.Remember when we experienced that amazing Disney Springs Date Night event? The last part of that wonderful weekend was a brunch at Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’. That brunch included some of the most delicious breakfast items I’ve ever enjoyed. The atmosphere is so relaxed and welcoming; we enjoyed our meal for hours with new friends! I haven’t had the opportunity to go back for lunch or dinner, but I know the food would be just as amazing. I’ve heard their salads are huge and who can resist those Southern desserts? It’s definitely a win for families with children, or a just a casual meal with friends.

3. A Friendly Competition at SplitsvilleWhen you are looking for more than a great meal, look no further than Splitsville at Disney Springs! My husband and I are a pretty competitive couple, so combing a date night with some friendly competition is perfect for us. At Splitsville, you can challenge your friends to bowling, while enjoying a meal right at your lanes! This is luxury bowling at it’s finest, and the atmosphere is really fun and laid back. It’s a great stop for appetizers before a sit down meal, or to make a whole night of bowling! We’ve celebrated a few birthdays here as well, and it’s always a great time, no matter the occasion.
