Grand Floridian Cafe is one of those underrated Disney World restaurants you rarely hear about. Located at the Grand Floridian, it does have a lot of other acclaimed restaurants to contend with like Victoria and Alberts and Narcoossee’s. Not only is the food here fantastic but it remains one of those great values for dining, that is only if you are paying out-of-pocket. There are many dishes on the menu that remain under the $20 price point. If you are on the Disney Dining Plan you may want to skip this stop unless of course everyone in your family plans on eating the strip steak off the menu, which wouldn’t be a bad idea actually!
The atmosphere here is like much of the rest of the Grand Floridian, Victorian details, bright and airy atmosphere. The times I have stopped in to dine here it hasn’t been overly crowded or noisy. Plus the service has always been top-notch! Now let’s get into some of the nitty-gritty of the Grand Floridian Cafe!

Two thumbs up! Some solid affordable options for both brunch and dinner.

It’s a great stop for a quite and inexpensive meal. So if you spent a long day in the park and are sick of counter service this may be the perfect fit for you.
