The Average Cost of Table Service Meals at Disney World
Disney’s Table Service restaurants are full-service and typically have an elaborate theme. They can be family-oriented, fun, kitschy, exotic, or upscale and classy.
You can count on fantastic customer service and delicious food and drinks at Disney’s Table Service restaurants.
There’s also a huge range of prices amongst Table Service restaurants but they always cost more than Quick Services restaurants. We think it’s worth splurging while you’re on vacation but you certainly don’t need Table Service for every meal.
Cost of Regular Table Service Restaurants
Let’s look at 50’s Prime Time Cafe (in Disney’s Hollywood Studios) as an example of what you might expect from a casual table-service location. It’s open for lunch and dinner and serves classic American fare like fried chicken, pot roast, salmon, meatloaf, and other hearty items.
Entrees at 50’s Prime Time Cafe (and similar Table Service restaurants) vary from $15 – $30 for both lunch and dinner. Kid’s menu items range from $10 -$15.
Cost of Family Style Table Service Restaurants
Some Table Service restaurants offer “all-you-care-to-eat” family-style meals. With this option, you pay a set price and have the freedom to sample all kinds of different foods.
As an example, Liberty Tree Tavern (in Disney’s Magic Kingdom) is a family-style dining location serving both lunch and dinner for $39 (adults)/$21 (kids ages 3-9). You receive three courses: a mixed salad to start, the main course is a Patriot’s Platter with roasted turkey breast, pot roast, and oven-roasted pork with mashed potatoes, seasonal vegetables, herb stuffing, and house-made macaroni and cheese, and Oooey Gooey Toffee Cake for dessert.
Cost of Disney Character Dining Meals
Disney’s “Signature Dining” restaurants are Disney’s top-of-the-line dining locations…and destinations unto themselves. They offer creative cuisine and memorable experiences in a fine dining environment.
There are Signature Dining locations at most Disney Deluxe Resorts and at least one at each theme park.
Victoria & Albert’s, located in Disney’s Grand Floridian, is a AAA Five Diamond Award-winning restaurant.
Magic Kingdom has Cinderella’s Royal Table; EPCOT has Le Cellier (Canada Pavilion), Monsieur Paul (France Pavilion), and Takumi-Tei (Japan Pavilion); Disney’s Hollywood Studios has Hollywood Brown Derby; Disney’s Animal Kingdom has Tiffins.
Signature Dining entrees tend to be in the $30 – $60 range.
Appetizers at Table Service restaurants typically cost $11 -$15 and desserts average in the $10 – $16 range.
Count on about $8 for a beer and $18 for a glass of wine or cocktail.
You can see how a Signature Dining experience for 2 adults can easily cost $150, and upwards of $200 when you include two kids.
Total Cost of Table Service Dining
It will cost a family of four (two adults, two kids) anywhere from $75 to $200 on average to eat at a Disney Table Service restaurant. The total cost depends on what you order and the type of Table Service restaurant you choose.
