It seems as though there are plenty of dining options at Walt Disney World aimed squarely at the princess crowd, so if you have a little girl, there is no shortage of dining options right up their alley. There are also a few that feature the Fab 5 Disney characters, which tend to be pretty gender neutral. But, there isn’t really one boy-themed character meal. Where is the Pirates of the Caribbean breakfast, or the Monsters, Inc Meal? I would love to see a Star Wars themed meal in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and I am sure that is coming at some point in the future, but it isn’t there now. So, you have little boys and are going to Disney, what do you do?
Here is our list of the top 5 Disney World restaurants for boys:
- Toy Story Pizza Planet – Disney’s Hollywood Studios – If you have a Toy Story fan in your family, Pizza Planet is the place for you. This is the only counter service restaurant in the list. While the pizza isn’t too bad, this is just a fun place to eat for everyone, and the fact that Buzz, Woody and friends are all over the restaurant is a plus for any boy. – $ ($14.99 and under per adult)
- Whispering Canyon Cafe – Disney’s Wilderness Lodge – The ultimate boy restaurant if there ever was one. If your boys like to horse around, this is the place. Whispering Canyon features boy friendly food like Kansas City-style pork ribs and mashed potatoes. They often have broom horse races around the restaurant and other crazy games that boys love.
