When it comes to Disney World buffets, you really can’t go wrong. All have a variety of food choices and allow you to eat as much as you would like. You will find at least one buffet at each of the four Disney World resorts and there are buffets at many of the Walt Disney World Resorts.
Some Disney World buffets even allow you to meet and greet with characters while you dine!
These character buffets are great because you are able to enjoy a wonderful meal and meet your favorite characters without having to stand in a line!
Disney World buffets charge one flat fee that is based on the type of buffet it is and the age of the guest.
Dinner and character buffets tend to be more expensive than breakfast and lunch buffets.
If you are using the Disney dining plan, you will find that all Disney World buffets qualify for a table service credit, but character buffets are generally 2 table service credits.
Best Disney World Buffets
When trying to decide on which buffets you are going to experience, you will want to do your research. While all are good, some are better than others. Here are the ones we always choose when going to Disney World...
If someone in your group has a special love for Stitch, you are going to want to make a reservation at 'Ohana for either breakfast or dinner.
'Ohana is located at Disney's Polynesian Resort and is a character dining experience where you can meet Lilo, Stitch and Mickey Mouse.
At the 'Ohana breakfast buffet, you will be served an all you can eat Family Style breakfast. It is the only place where you will find Stitch waffles and their signature Pineapple-Coconut Breakfast Bread.
Dinner buffet has a selection of chicken, steak and shrimp along with noodles and stirfry vegetables which are all brought to your table.
The meal ends with one of the most amazing desserts, the ‘Ohana Bread Pudding topped with Caramel Sauce and Bananas.
Located at the Beach Club Resort, Cape May has two buffets, one at breakfast and another at dinner.
While the Breakfast buffet at Cape May has traditional breakfast favorites and features some of your favorite Disney characters like Donald Duck, Minnie Mouse and Goofy, the dinner buffet at Cape May is very unique.
At dinner there are no characters and it is a seafood buffet featuring clams, mussels, crab legs, shrimp, along with ribs, chicken and more.
I've been wanting to try the Cape May seafood buffet for several visits. But I keep getting scared away at their generic menu online. It doesn't really list what they serve, and "Classic Favorites for Children" doesn't tell me a whole lot. I have a picky eater, so I have to know before I go if there's anything she'll eat. She'll eat chicken nuggets/tenders but doesn't eat drumsticks, for example.
Do you know what's offered on the children's buffet? I was glad to see you posted for Biergarten (another one I want to try but have shied away from because of my picky eater, but can reserve now with confidence).
