Victoria and Albert’s
This is the highest end of the Disney World fine dining restaurants. It’s a AAA 5 diamond restaurant in Grand Floridian. The Dishes are exceptionally fancy and the price is astronomical. Especially if you want to dine at the chef’s table. The 10 course menu includes fancy wines and expensive caviar. Check out the menu here.
Truly fine dining with a lot less stuffiness. This Animal Kingdom Lodge restaurant has the largest selection of South African wines outside of Africa. The food is expertly prepared and plated and the meal is prefaced with a refreshing Moroccan Mint iced tea. Check out the menu here.
This high end Restaurant sits high atop the Contemporary with a stunning park view perfect for fireworks. California Grill has an exceptional menu but is known for sushi among other things. Check out the menu here.
Flying Fish is one of the newer exciting restaurants in Walt Disney World. It’s a terrific addition to Disney World fine dining, with inventive seafood dishes and a stunning waterfront location on Disney’s Boardwalk. I was able to have a 5 course dinner during the press trip to the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. It was such an incredible experience–the staff and the food were both phenomenal!

The Yachtsman is the number one preferred place to get a steak in Walt Disney World. The aged cuts of beef are seasoned to perfection and go well with greens from The Land pavilion in Epcot. Check out the menu here.
Right next to Victoria and Albert’s in the Grand Floridian, Citrico offers fine dining with a more casual flare. This restaurant even has a dining event that you can attend and dine with an imagineer. This is by reservation only. They also do this at the Hollywood Brown Derby. Check out the menu here.
Hollywood Brown Derby
This may be a restaurant inside a theme park, but it might also be the best Disney World fine dining available. The replica of the original restaurant does its namesake justice. The famous Cobb Salad is one of the most popular items, but all the food is fantastic and well worth the price. Check out the menu here.
