Where to Treat and Eat with Dad for a Walt Disney World Father’s Day

No matter if you’re challenging him to a round of golf (or mini-golf), cruising the Disney World waterways with a boat rental or spending quality time in line for some of the theme parks’ best rides, Dad is bound to work up an appetite after all that fun. 

Well, you’re in luck. Walt Disney World is positively chockful of yummy eats and memorable dining experiences perfect for Dad’s special day, including some dishes cooked up especially for Father’s Day. Think smoky-sweet BBQ, nods to some of Disney’s most beloved dads and all things bacon. Oh, and don’t forget the quintessential Turkey Legs!

Dad-friendly food can be found across the Central Florida resort, whether you’re searching for a fast-and-easy quick-service restaurant inside the parks, a sit-down table-service meal back at your hotel or anything in between. 

Keep in mind that advance dining reservations are suggested for many of the restaurants on our list. So, if you haven’t secured one yet, consider dining during off-hours for a shorter wait on the walk-up list. Or, skip the hassle altogether by sticking to Disney World’s many quick-service restaurants.
