The Five Best Bar Meals at Walt Disney World

No Reservation? No Problem! Walt Disney World offers several bars and lounges on property where you can order a top-notch meal right at the bar. Eating at the bar is a great option for solo travelers as it gives you the option of chatting up the bartender for fun gossip and up to the minute Disney information. While there are many Disney lounges that offer food, these five bar meals are my favorites!

Tune-in Lounge at Disney's Hollywood Studios

The theme may be 1950's kitsch, but the food is all pure comfort favorites. Attached to the 50's Prime Time Cafe you can order right off their menu seated at the bar. Start off here with the Beer Battered Onion Rings, and then go for the sampler, seriously. A Sampling of Mom's Favorite Recipes (Golden-fried Chicken, Fork Tender Pot Roast, and Traditional Meatloaf with all the fixings) shows off everything that's great about days gone by, and for dessert the Mom's Chocolate Peanut Butter Layer will have you feeling young again.

Territory Lounge at Disney's Wilderness Lodge

This rustic favorite is a warm and cozy location with a menu full of wonderful wilderness eats. Start with a delicious Onion Soup (featuring with Roasted Shiitakes, Sour Cream, and Chive Oil), then move on to the "BLT" Flatbread (Tomato Jam, Applewood-smoked Bacon, Arugula, and Fennel Aioli make this a real winner), and finish up the legendary Artist Point Cobbler. And it's all just a 5 minute boat ride from the Magic Kingdom!

Raglan Road Irish Pub at Downtown Disney

Belly up to the bar at this traditional Irish Pub. We've had exceptional bar service at this Downtown Disney favorite, with the bartender's recommendations providing top notch eats to pair with the Irish brews. A Crock O'Pate (Our crock of rustic chicken liver pate served with an apricot chutney and a berry compote) sets the tone for hearty Irish fare, Bangers and Booz (Guinness & onion bangers on mash, topped with caramelized onions & beef stew) is a stunning second round, best followed up with a rich and decadent Dunbrody Jaffa Kiss (Chef Dundon's gift to America; Chocolate, orange marmalade centre, add more chocolate , then add some more.)

Tutto Gusto in Epcot's Italy

This bar was literally made for this purpose. Showcasing the fabulous food and wine of Italy Tutto Gusto features small plates and big sips. Cozy and inviting start your wine cellar meal by ordering up an Italian Wine flight. The Cacciatorini offers black pepper, wine marinated, beef & pork cured sausages to nosh on while waiting for your meal of Cavatappi Ragu d'Agnello (tossed with lamb ragu and pecorino), for dessert indulge in the Nutella Chocolate Cake paired with Prosecco.

Crew's Cup Lounge at Disney's Yacht Club Resort

Sitting right next to Disney's signature dining experience, Yachtsman Steakhouse the Crew's Cup offers some truly exceptional food in a more laid back atmosphere. Start off with Lump Crab Cakes (with Fire-roasted Corn Succotash and Lemon Emulsion), move on to Steak Frites (New York Strip Steak with Cabernet Reduction, Truffle Fries, and Roasted Shallot Mayonnaise), to finish off your meal take a stroll over to Beaches and Cream for dessert.

We just got back from WDW. During our visit to Tutto Gusto, we were told you can no longer order off the menu from Tutto Italia.

Territory Lounge and Raglan Road are two of my favorites, but I also love the Tambu Lounge at the Poly. The pulled pork nachos are a favorite, but you can also get the Banana Bread pudding from Ohana.

What about the Kona Sushi bar, Trader Sam's or my favourite, the Top of the World lounge? They make an amazing flatbread.

Unfortunately, several of the items posted about are no longer available at these locations and haven't been for a little while... The menus have been updated for a little while now and while most of these items no longer appear the new options at these locales are also pretty tasty.

Cheese fondue from Territory Lounge is my personal favorite.

Kurisuta - All of these menu items should be available, as I double checked against the official Disney menus online while I wrote the article. However as with all things Disney, it's always subject to change without notice.

Paul C - Top of the World is my favorite too! But I stuck with lounges everyone has access too for this article.

Carolyn - The pulled pork nachos are one of my very favorite Disney foods!
