Find out the best foods to eat at Disney Springs all in this post!
There are so many places to eat at Disney Springs but usually not enough time to try it all. That is why I am sharing the Best Eats at Disney Springs so you don’t waste any time finding THE BEST food!
Disney Springs is free to visit. It’s an outdoor shopping, dining, and entertainment complex at the Walt Disney World Resort in Buena Vista, Florida. (Near Orlando.) It’s a fun place to visit when you go on vacation to either Disney World or Universal Studios.
I recently went on a trip to Orlando, Florida. We spent 3 evenings at Disney Springs and I have been there a few times before so I know the best eats! I can’t wait to share with you what we ate because it was OUTSTANDING. I am only sharing the best eats with you!
The hardest part of putting this post together is missing this food. It is truly 10/10! Good quality and incredible taste!
Let me know in the comments which place you’d like to try first on your next trip to Disney Springs and if you have already been, let me know what you already love!
Just a note about traveling during Covid. We traveled to Disney Springs in September 2020. They took everyone’s temperature when you enter and you need to wear a mask the entire time. Unless you are eating. But you are not supposed to walk and eat or drink. I didn’t see anyone enforcing masks but it seemed like everyone wore their masks. It wasn’t a big deal. Although not my favorite thing. They do limit the crowd so if it gets to capacity then no more people can enter. That happened Friday evening after we got there so we were worried about Saturday but we were able to get in, no problem.
It’s still totally worth visiting right now if you are unsure.

SAVORY & SWEET
** SAVORY **
The Polite Pig
Modern barbeque with a Florida flair.
I wasn’t sure what to expect at the Polite Pig. But the line was so long when we visited in 2019 we weren’t able to go. We made certain to visit this time and I am so glad. This is what I ordered-
Low and Slow Brisket Sandwich– Prime brisket, Pimento Cheese, Porter BBQ, Pickled Jalapenos, and Onion Straws.
It was incredible and so flavorful! They have an awesome menu too. You can’t go wrong! They also sell cookies from Gideon’s Bakehouse which I’ve heard are amazing!
Check out the menu for The Polite Pig here.
Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’
Southern Homestyle Cuisine with all recipes crafted by Chef Art Smith, an award-winning celebrity chef.
Eating at Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ was at the top of my list. I had heard so many good things! On the first evening, we weren’t able to go because we didn’t make a reservation. You can wait but we were too hungry to wait so we went the next evening.
I went for the chicken, which was really good, but I fell in love with the homemade barbecue potato chips with icebox dressing. The taste, the texture, and the look of it are top-notch! It’s also a pretty restaurant and everyone was so nice there. You will want to eat here for sure!
Check out the menu to Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ here.
Find Italian quick bites here with counter-service pizza, sandwiches, and pastries.
Pizza Ponte is a great quick service place to eat. We’ve been a few times. The food is really good and when you are hungry you don’t have to wait long to eat!
All the pizza looked tasty! We really liked the Pepperoni, Parma Cotta, and Caprese. The sandwiches and salads look great too!
Check out the menu for Pizza Ponte here.

The famous Ghiradelli is in Disney Springs! They sell delicious ice cream sundaes and delicious chocolate.
Ghirardelli has a special place in my heart! On most of my trips that just my husband and I take there seems to be a Ghirardelli close by. We always share the hot fudge sundae. It’s amazing! They have so many fun options to choose from on their menu and often when you enter their store you are greeted with a free piece of Ghirardelli chocolate. What’s not to love about that?!
This is the perfect place to stop for a cool and tasty treat.

Handcrafted ganache squares in 16 amazing flavors. Plus other specialties like homemade S’mores.
I’m still dreaming about The Ganachery! If you care about high-quality desserts this is the place you will want to visit over and over again! I was sad we didn’t make it here until our last evening in Florida.
There are so many delicious Ganache flavors to choose from. I wish I could have ordered 1 of each!
Pictured- Raspberry and Egyptian Sea Salt. Both really good but the second one was outstanding!
Eating these ganache squares is a pure chocolate dream. It’s unlike anything I’ve ever had before! It is creamy, chocolatey, and incredibly tasty. A strong 10/10. These handmade chocolates are something you must put on the top of your “to eat list!”
Before we could enter The Ganachery we had to wait in line because of Covid they were only letting in what seemed to be about 4 people at a time. I wish we would have had more time to make a decision on what chocolates to get but now you have the flavor reference guide so you have plenty of time to decide!
I was so excited to order their specialty item of Homemade S’mores. It’s definitely not your ordinary s’more but quite the opposite. Everything is handmade and incredibly delicious!
Best S’more I’ve had in my life!!
A modern bakery with beautiful pastries.
This is such a fun shop to visit! The desserts are stunning. Pieces of art you can eat! We loved it so much we visited twice in one trip.
Everything was so tasty! They have seasonal items too as you can see on the bottom left we got the Pumpkin Minnie Mouse which was carrot cake, with pumpkin mousse, and marshmallow mousse. It was really good! They also have sandwiches, salads, and full Disney-themed cakes you can buy.

Right Now is a great time to travel to Orlando!
Flight tickets are the lowest I have seen ever. Now would be an amazing time to travel to Disney Springs and Disney World. If you know me, you know that Disney World is pretty much my favorite place on earth.
If you book with Get Away Today, you can save up to $500 on a 4 day/4-night room and ticket package.
Plus with Get Away today you will always have peace of mind when booking. We sadly had to cancel our Disneyland tickets for a special family trip we were going to take in a few weeks. It breaks my heart but I am glad we got a full refund from Get Away Today.
Enjoy your next trip to the happiest place on earth!
Completely agree on Chef Art’s, The Boathouse and D-Luxe Burger but have tried the rest of those you mentioned and won’t go back. We’re local and go often. You didn’t mention Terralina Crafted Italian, which is amazing and worth going to. We also loved The Edison – the theme of the place is great and there is a show (or was before COVID) in the evening that is so worth catching! Food was good but common fare.
Thanks for the input! I’m jealous you are local. All things Disney World is my FAVORITE! I almost added Terralina Crafted Italian so I just went back to add it in!
