Top Restaurant Views

By February 16, 2018 April 8th, 2019 No Comments

Dinner with a view.  There’s a reason why major cities in the world have wonderful restaurants on top of tall buildings.  A good view can make any overpriced food item bearable.  All kidding aside, I personally prefer outdoor seating when the weather is nice enough, especially if there is a scenic view.  Preferences like this gave us our topic for today’s post.

Welcome to Believe Vacation’s search for the BEST RESTAURANT AT DISNEY where today, we’ll provide results of establishments we thought had the Best View.  For this list, you’ll notice some indoor locations made the cut and that’s because the interior may be designed to look outside or replicate being outside.  Others are strictly based off what you see from a table on the corner.  So get those glasses on because we’re starting with:

Pull Up a Chair

Casey’s Corner (Quick Service, 1 credit) – Sitting on the corner, you get the view of Main Street to the right, the Castle to the left and the famous piano player behind you!

Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe (Quick Service, 1 credit) – Maybe not so much in the daytime but check this spectacle out at night for all its glory.

Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe (Quick Service, 1 credit) – Still one of the more underrated parade spots, catch views of Big Thunder Mountain and Splash Mountain.

The Garden Grill (Table Service, 1 credit) – The restaurant rotates so you’ll see out into the lobby of The Land and also watch the boats for Living with the Land passing by.

A Whole New World

The Crystal Palace (Table Service, 1 credit)  – The scenery outside is pretty good with the castle in front of you.  But for this one, the glass atrium look with all the greenery makes this establishment majestic.

Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant (Table Service, 1 credit) – Yes, this one is indoors so you have to pretend you are at a real drive-in theater from the 50s or 60s.  The cars and taillights, the picnic tables, the night sky and the sci-fi trailers on the big screen set the mood for a romantic date.

Be Our Guest Restaurant (Table Service, 1 credit) – Another indoor restaurant, you have the once in a lifetime chance to dine in the castle of the Beast.  Complete with a main dining hall and even the forbidden West Wing, you’ll always have incredible views and scenery surrounding you.

Cinderella’s Royal Table (Table Service, 2 credits)  – I personally have never been inside a castle but I can imagine it’s lovely.  Now imagine being inside THE CASTLE complete with your favorite Disney Princesses and we’re talking major visual overload.

San Angel Inn Restaurante (Table Service, 1 credit) – Yes, being inside with a fabricated painted night sky counts!  Special points if you have the tables closest to the river track for Gran Fiesta Tour all while an ominous looking Mayan Pyramid casts its large shadow on the other side.

Under the Sea

Coral Reef Restaurant (Table Service, 1 credit)  – The seaweed and the “scenery” is always greener in this restaurant.  Location within the actual aquarium that makes up “The Seas with Nemo” at Epcot, this underwater restaurant allows you to dine and view colorful marine life at the same time.  Of course, one of the most spectacular views comes when a scuba diver makes a plunge and starts waving at your table.
