What is a Signature Restaurant?

There are 139 restaurants at Walt Disney World Resort. While many offer unique dining experiences featuring Character appearances and/or distinctively themed décor, only a handful are considered Signature Dining experiences.

Signature Dining restaurants provide unparalleled cuisine in upscale, elegant surroundings, sampling only the finest fare Disney chefs can prepare. Each meal includes an entrée, dessert and non-alcoholic beverage. Children’s menus are available. If you are on the Disney Dining Plan, Signature Dining restaurants will require two of your table service credits. If not on Disney Dining, expect to pay $30-$60 per adult entrée. Appetizers and desserts are an additional expense and gratuity is not included.
