Have Big Eaters? Top All You Care to Eat Meals at Disney

Eating at Walt Disney World can be expensive, especially when traveling with big eaters. As our kids moved from the kid’s meals to full adult menus, we realized that we might have to adjust our eating plan at Disney.

If you are in the same situation, we will share the top all-you-care-to-eat meals at Walt Disney World. These dining locations include fresh, well-prepared meals to get the most out of your money. We like these options as they allow everyone to enjoy more of their favorites without it costing more.

Whispering Canyon Cafe- Wilderness Lodge (all meals)

Not only do we love eating at Whispering Canyon Cafe because of the beautiful atmosphere, but we also love eating here because of the all-you-care-to-eat skillets. Enjoy these outstanding skillets for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

You will see four main skillets at dinner. They are The Traditional, The Pig, The Land and Sea, and a Plant-based skillet. Each skillet features a variety of proteins and sides for guests to enjoy. The best part of the skillets is that you can ask for more.

We also enjoy Whispering Canyon Cafe, as only some have to choose a skillet. They also have traditional entrees if that is more your style.

Whispering Canyon Cafe is full of great food in a fun atmosphere.

Liberty Tree

Liberty Tree Tavern- Magic Kingdom (lunch and dinner)

In Magic Kingdom, guests can enjoy this all-you-care-to-eat Thanksgiving-themed meal all year round. Liberty Tree Tavern offers a family-style meal featuring salad, turkey, pot roast, and great sides.

Guests can keep getting more items throughout the meal until they can wrap up with the delicious Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake. This classic American-inspired menu is all about comfort food.

Not only do we love the food options, but the restaurant’s atmosphere is also excellent. There are six dining rooms, all featuring American heroes. The six rooms are Betsy Ross, George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, John Paul Jones, and Paul Revere.

Liberty Tree Tavern is an excellent option for big eaters as the food can just keep coming.

Boma Buffet Disney World

Boma- Flavors of Africa- Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, Jambo House (Breakfast, Dinner)

Another excellent option for those looking for an all-you-care-to-eat meal is over at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. Boma- Flavors of Africa is a buffet restaurant that offers fantastic food. Boma is an excellent option for those with a combination of picky and adventurous eaters.

On the buffet, you will find a combination of traditional items, such as waffles for breakfast and chicken for dinner; however, you will also find more unique items. Guests wanting to try dishes with African flavors will discover various options at Boma.

As a buffet, it is a great way to try new items. We love that we can take a small amount of something to try and head back once we find our favorites. Make sure you grab a Zebra Dome before you leave.

Biergarten- Germany Pavilion, EPCOT (lunch or dinner)

If you find yourself in EPCOT and need an all-you-care-to-eat experience, see if Biergarten in Germany has any openings. This buffet features authentic German offerings such as sausages, potato dishes, and amazing desserts.

We love the entertainment offered throughout the meal and the welcoming atmosphere of this restaurant. Having a buffet full of protein options is great for those big eaters.

Garden Grill- The Land Pavilion (all meals)

Another fantastic EPCOT option that is now again open for all meals is Garden Grill. Located in The Land Pavilion, this all-you-care-to-eat family-style meal is a fan favorite. Not only do guests get to meet Chip ‘n’ Dale and their friends like Farmer Mickey, but they also get to see parts of Living with the Land below.

During their meal, guests are brought family-style platters full of delicious choices. Guests can request more favorites like Liberty Tree Tavern and Whispering Canyon Cafe. The menu offers classic options like waffles, sausage, and eggs for breakfast and potatoes, turkey, and pork for lunch and dinner.

Garden Grill is an overall fun and satisfying restaurant.

Ohana's Disney Polynesian Resort

O’hana- Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort (breakfast and dinner)

Over at the beautiful and tropical Disney’s Polynesian Resort, guests can enjoy an all-you-care-to-eat breakfast or dinner at O’hana. These two meals are served differently; however, both offer endless selections.

Guests are provided a skillet with waffles, eggs, sausage, ham, and potatoes for breakfast. During the dinner hour, guests are served a salad, chicken wings, the beloved O’hana noodles, and port dumplings family-style at the table. During their meal, meats that have been cooked over the open fire are brought to the table. Guests can ask for more of whatever they desire during their meal.

O’hana is a fantastic choice for big meat eaters as beef, shrimp, and chicken are continuously brought to the table.
