This counter-service barbecue joint takes pride in house-smoking its St. Louis ribs low and slow, allowing the rubs to create rich oak flavors. Ribs are finished with the trademark house-made barbecue sauce and served with special-recipe baked beans and coleslaw. disneyworld.disney.go.com

More than 17 million people vacation at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom each year, and that magic—and those long lines—can work up an appetite.

When hunger strikes on your next visit, don’t turn to the nearest food cart or restaurant. It’s worth seeking out certain restaurants at Disney World and Disneyland that will satisfy kids and adults alike and enhance your experience. Waking up to the Princess Breakfast of French toast stuffed with caramel apple and drizzled in caramel at the Cinderella Castle or sampling piri-piri chicken and South African wines at Jiko restaurant can be as memorable as laying eyes on Mickey for the first time.

Some of the best Disney restaurants embrace their own themes, like the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant, where you can dig into house-smoked St. Louis–style pork ribs while watching a black-and-white horror movie on the 50-foot screen.

If Sci-Fi Dine-In transports you to another time (the 1950s), Disneyland’s Blue Bayou transports you to another place—a southern bayou, complete with “twilight” lighting and fireflies. It’s delightful to linger here over New Orleans gumbo as the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction floats by.

We have you covered whatever you’re craving, from great to-go snacks (a jumbo turkey leg) to a celebrity chef’s Mediterranean restaurant on Disney’s BoardWalk.
