Perhaps unsurprisingly, theme and chain restaurants dominate the dining scene in Orlando. Vast numbers of families are looking to be fed cheaply and efficiently and the major fast food corporations are more than happy to oblige. For food that is a bit more elevated, there are many themed restaurants that pepper the theme parks, mostly places for children to meet their favorite cartoon characters and buy more merchandise—and the food selection tends to be more desirable. Even more pleasing for adults are the upscale dining opportunities, ranging from the celebrity outposts from chefs such as Emeril Lagasse to truly world-class dining rooms such as Victoria & Albert’s. It’s well worth remembering that most restaurants in Orlando have kids' menus at hugely discounted prices.
