One of our most favorite places to eat at Walt Disney World is The Garden Grill. Not only is this a character meal, it’s got some really amazing food! Another fun bonus: the restaurant spins while you’re eating! Located above the Living with the Land ride, it gives you a unique view of the attraction as well as ever changing scenery while you’re enjoying your meal. The motion isn’t really enough to notice while you’re dining but for some reason it always gets me as I’m stepping out back onto non-moving ground when we’re done eating.
Every time we’ve dined here, the characters have stopped at our table at least twice (sometimes more!). The first visit is the “norm” – sign the autograph book and get a picture. When they make it around a second time, there’s a lot more playing involved. Sometimes one of the friends gets hungry and wants to share our yummy food so be sure to keep an eye on your food! Curious what’s on the menu? Check it out here!
Stroller parking is located outside the building near The Seas with Nemo and Friends so bring whatever you might need before you park and head in. It’s a few minutes walk back if you need something during your meal. Be sure to keep your diaper bags and coolers closed tightly while in your stroller. The squirrels are not afraid to hop in and look for snacks for themselves. We’ve scared them off countless strollers.
The Garden Grill is certainly place we would return to. Have you been here before? Share your thoughts below!
