Most of us have been eating more outdoors in the past year and a half. For some, it’s nice to get some fresh air while enjoying their lunch. For others, it’s a necessary way to stay safe at Disney World during the pandemic. Whatever your reason for eating outside, our ultimate guide to outdoor dining at Disney World will let you know everywhere you can grab a bite outside at the most magical place on Earth.

Our second entry in the outdoor dining series focuses on Disney World’s second park: Epcot. Epcot is an awesome park for outdoor dining, with a wide variety of offerings. Whether you’re eating on the go as you tour the Food & Wine Festival or sitting down to a fantastic meal in the World Showcase while watching Harmonious, you could spend the entire day at Epcot and never have to eat indoors while enjoying world class food.

I’ve broken it up into “The Best” and “The Rest.” The restaurants listed in “The Best” either have delicious food, great outdoor seating sections, food that’s easy to eat on the go, or any combination of the above. If a restaurant is listed in “The Rest,” it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a bad option. It’s just not one of our favorites.

  • Festival Food Booths (Around the Entire Park) – Whether it’s for Epcot’s International Food & Wine Festival, the Flower & Garden Festival, the Festival of the Arts, or the Festival of the Holidays, Epcot offers delicious small bites at various food booths located around the park. Dining at 2 or 3 (or more, let’s be honest) of these booths is a fun way to enjoy a meal, and the vast majority of them are completely outside.
