Delicious Dining at DVC Resorts

Posted:  Dining Resorts

Let’s talk about DVC Resorts and their food options. I’ve had wonderful dining experiences while visiting Disney, and my favorite four dining spots are located at or right next to some of the most beautiful DVC Resorts! 

Sign for Disney’s Riviera Resort

Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Kidani Village is where you can indulge your taste buds at Sanaa, Disney’s Riviera Resort offers exciting experiences at Topolino’s Terrace, Disney’s Beach Club Villas has the best Tomato soup and Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa is just a walk away from Disney’s Springs where you will find Raglan Road.

Starting with the well-known restaurant Sanaa, is a delicious experience located at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Kidani Village. This East African-inspired eatery offers some exceptional meals for guests to enjoy! You can also see stunning views of the savannah especially when the animals are out and about!

You can start your day with a casual breakfast, awakening all your senses, or for lunch and dinner, you can find a variety of authentic choices from tender meats to vegetarian dishes! All these flavors will melt in your mouth while giving guests an experience of the flavors of Africa through taste!  

One of my favorite things at this restaurant is the Indian-style bread service with nine accompaniments from sweet to spicy!

Next up is Topolino’s Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera, and I highly recommend it. I had the pleasure of dining here for “Breakfast a la Art with Mickey & Friends,” and let me tell you, it was phenomenal! This breakfast will begin with what seems like endless amounts of fresh pastries and bread, and has entrée options to please everyone in the family.

You can choose a classic Two Egg Any Style breakfast or go with something a little fancier to start the day. You can also dine here for dinner with endless homemade dishes infused with French and Italian flavors! Whichever you choose, this is a fun and exciting experience to have during your Disney vacation. When you visit be sure to step out on the patio and enjoy the rooftop view.

One of my favorite meals and bucket list desserts can be found at Disney’s Beach Club Villas and occurs when dining at Beaches & Cream Soda Shop!

Beaches & Cream Soda Shop has lots to offer guests with its casual American Atlantic Seashore dining! You can sip on some flavored sodas and whipped-up milkshakes while enjoying some off-the-grill items.

My bucket list item would have to be what they call the “Kitchen Sink.”  With eight scoops of ice cream, a full can of whip cream, and all the toppings you can handle, this is one for the books!

My absolute favorite item on the menu is the Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup. With a few options for your grilled cheese, complimented with a phenomenally-tasting soup, you cannot get better than this. My mouth is watering as I write this!  

All in all, this spot must be one of my favorites and always makes me feel right at home!

The next location would technically not be at any DVC resort; however, it is just a short walk or boat ride from one of my favorite resorts, so I thought I would throw this in here as a bonus option.  

Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa

When staying at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa, you’ve picked a great location for dining options.  If you’re looking for some good food and entertainment, I highly recommend walking over to Disney Springs and stopping at Raglan Road Irish Pub!

This dining experience is another one of my favorites and gives guests the opportunity to engulf themselves in the life and soul of Ireland! You will be amazed by the dancers and the live bands. If you can’t get a spot inside, check out the Raglan Road Live Music – Patio Stage, as they sometimes will have open tables on the patio.

With numerous dining options, flavors, and encounters with Disney friends, DVC Resort dining has always been an amazing opportunity for me to get to see a resort and have a delicious dining experience! Be sure to find some favorites you can always go back to; I have mine!
