While Disney World has become synonymous with trendy snacks and treats, it is also home to many upscale and themed restaurants. While the cuisine at these special locations oftentimes tastes amazing, the price can add up quickly. With that said, we’re here now to look at some of the most expensive restaurants on Disney property.
Before we dive in, it’s worth noting that we won’t be taking special multi-restaurant dining experiences or seasonal eating events into account. Instead, we’ll be focusing on the restaurants that are available year-round.
It’s also worth noting that these prices are approximate, as many of them don’t include tax or tip. Disney can also change the prices at any time. Finally, we'll be picking the most expensive restaurants from the list of locations with four dollar signs ($60+) on the Disney World website. With that said, it’s time to fine-dine at the theme parks — here are is a selection of the priciest restaurants at Walt Disney World Resort.
10 Cinderella’s Royal Table
This enchanting character dining experience inside of Cinderella Castle at the Magic Kingdom allows you to meet princesses while trying items like chicken breast, chickpea panisse, and seared pork rib chop for dinner. For breakfast, you can enjoy Caramel Apple-stuffed French Toast, Royal Avocado Toast, or Baked Quiche.
If you attend a morning meal, you’ll be paying $62 per adult. If you instead choose to go in the afternoon or evening, you’ll be pulling out $75 per guest. Top it all off with a whipped cheesecake, peanut butter cake, lemon sorbet, or dark chocolate mousse.
9 Be Out Guest
Deeper in the Magic Kingdom’s Fantasyland sits a gorgeous Beauty and the Beast-themed restaurant known as Be Our Guest.
Though the castle ballroom, west wing, and rose gallery become quick-service locations for breakfast, they transform into a sit-down experience for lunch and dinner. Adults can expect to pay over $60 for a fixed-price three-course meal. We suggest trying the Grey Stuff; It’s delicious.
This trendy Spanish-influenced restaurant and bar, located at the Four Season Resort Orlando on Disney property, serves up rooftop views that are almost as incredible as the food.
Though small plates cost between $12 and $18, the main dishes including fried eggplant, sea bass, chicken breast, and duck breast range from $28 to $45. You’ll be paying the most for grill entrées. While the 12-oz Prime New York Strip will have you pulling out $48, the 32-oz Prime Porterhouse will cause you to leave $118 behind.
7 Garden View Tea Room
If you’re craving morning or afternoon tea, this is your location, Located inside of Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, the Garden View Tea Room provides an array of tea-time snacks and drinks.
Though you can get away with a traditional afternoon tea experience for $35 a person, The Berkshire Tea — which includes finger sandwiches, scones, dessert, caviar, and two teapots comes out to be $150 for two guests. That being said, the garden views, fine dishware, and elegant setting are unbeatable.

5 Luau Cove

1 Victoria & Albert’s
