The Magic Kingdom is where storybooks come to life, where elephants fly, teacups dance, and every day ends happily ever after. Disney tales and characters are around every corner -- at Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, and classic Disney attractions like the Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean.

At some point, to fuel your fantasies, you and the kids must eat. The Magic Kingdom's restaurants have you covered, with numerous places throughout the park to eat. You'll find eateries with a range of price points, types of cuisines and service, and a variety of themes that will please every taste.  You'll also find links to reviews and more information such as Disney Character dining, mobile ordering and restaurants with shows.
