Fodor's Review

The view from the surrounding Disney parks from this 15th-floor restaurant—the World's signature dining establishment since 1995—is as stunning as the food, especially after dark, when you can watch the nightly Magic Kingdom fireworks. The entire space and menu underwent major transformations in 2013, from new midcentury modern furnishings and chandeliers to kitchen equipment such as a cast-iron flat grill designed specifically for cooking fish. Expect locally sourced

foods where possible, made-from-scratch items such as the sausage-in-a-duck sampler appetizer, and many items cooked in the wood-fired oven. Sushi remains a highlight, alongside creative, globally inspired entrées. Specialties include a short-rib fillet cooked at a low temperature for 24 hours sous-vide style and served with red-wine butter, and scallops with homemade gnocchi, smoked pork, and Parmesan foam. A 10- to 14-course omakase (tasting menu) is available.
