Dining at Disney World is one of the best parts of vacation. And with the generally warm Florida weather, there are plenty of outdoor dining options at Walt Disney World. This is a list of the current locations where you can eat outside at Disney.
Where Can You Eat Outside At Disney World?
In this current day and age, eating outside is one of our favorite things.
If that means waiting a bit for an outside table or taking a meal to go, we’re big fans of dining in the sunshine!
Especially when it comes to dining outdoors at Disney World.
So where can you eat outside at Disney? Here are a few locations to consider when stopping to feed your crew on your next Disney trip.
Magic Kingdom Outdoor Dining
Magic Kingdom offers quite a few spots to enjoy a meal outside.
Unfortunately, not many of the Table Service options give you an outside option.
Table Service Outdoor Dining At Magic Kingdom
Tony’s Town Square is the only Table Service that offers a limited patio seating option.
If you can grab an Advanced Dining Reservation to fall in line with the 3:00 pm parade, you’ll have a front-row seat to the fun!
Full disclosure: it’s not our *favorite* place to eat at Magic Kingdom, but there are some winners on the menu… if you aren’t Italian and super picky.
Places To Eat Outside At Disney: Magic Kingdom Quick Service
These locations offer mobile ordering AND outdoor dining at Magic Kingdom.
Place your order, skip the line, pick up your meal and find a place to eat outside.
Protip: if you can score a seat by a door, you’ll also soak in some of that sweet, sweet AC during the summer as most of the doors are left open for guests. Pecos Bills is our go-to for this tip.
- Casey’s Corner
- Pinocchio Village Haus
- Cosmic Rays Starlight Cafe
- Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn & Cafe
- Sleepy Hollow
- Columbia Harbour House– special mention. You’ll have to grab a seat nearby in Liberty Square since the resturaunt itself does not offer outdoor seating.
Epcot Outdoor Dining
Epcot is a special park that has loads of dining options.
If you are visiting during one of the 4 festival seasons at Epcot, you may find the best dining to be right outside the booth you just visited.
Those tables aren’t always available, but if they are, this is the best way to eat around the world and enjoy outside dining at Disney World.
Table Service Outdoor Dining At Epcot
Epcot has a few more outdoor options than Magic Kingdom.
Here’s a list of the Epcot outdoor dining options:
- Rose and Crown Dining Room (UK Pavillion)
- Spice Road Table (Morocco Pavillion)
- Via Napoli (Italy Pavillion)
- Tutto Italia (Italy Pavillion)
We put the two Italy locations on the list, but these outdoor dining at Epcot options are not always being used.
Please manage your expectations (and you can cancel your ADR if it turns out they can’t accommodate you outside!).

Hollywood Studios Outdoor Dining
Hollywood Studios offers an assortment of dining options.
There are plenty of places to eat outside, but most of the better dining at this Disney World park will be found inside.
Good thing there are plenty of Quick Service outdoor dining like Woody’s Lunch Box available!
Table Service Outdoor Dining At Hollywood Studios
The only Table Service location that *kinda* counts for outdoor dining at Hollywood Studios will be the Hollywood Brown Derby Lounge.
Please note: this is not the restaurant!
But you can walk up to the outdoor lounge location and add your name to the waitlist.
And the famous Cobb Salad IS on the lounge menu.

Table Service options are extremely limited at this Disney park for outdoor dining.

Currently, the only Table Service outdoor dining option at Animal Kingdom will be found at Nomad Lounge which is part of Tiffins Restaurant.
If you can score an outside table here, you are going to love the ambiance! The menu isn’t too bad either but remember: it’s not a full menu if you choose to eat outdoors at the lounge.
