Epcot is one of the best places to visit for great healthy food at Disney World. It’s a goldmine of unique restaurants and dining experiences representing many different parts of the world.
I could spend my whole Disney World vacation at Epcot. It’s my favorite Disney park. I love all the fun, educational attractions in Future World, and the atmosphere of the World Showcase is enchanting.
The international pavilions celebrate different cultures from around the world, highlighting food and architecture from each country. On a walk around the World Showcase, you might catch a performance by Chinese acrobats, Japanese taiko drummers, or Moroccan dancers. A visit to Epcot can have a slower pace than a visit to the other Disney parks, which is part of what I love about it.
Healthy Epcot Restaurants
More than any other park at Disney World, Epcot offers lots of healthier dining options. You can find great food at table service and counter service restaurants, as well as seasonal kiosks with internationally inspired dishes.
I have lots of favorite healthy Epcot restaurants. There’s something for every budget and appetite.
Sunshine Seasons is a great place to grab lunch in Future World. There’s a wide variety of healthy food here, including Asian dishes, quinoa salad, and fish tacos. With so many choices at this food court, you’ll be able to find something for everyone in your group.
The Garden Grill is a character meal restaurant where you’ll meet Chip ‘n Dale, among other characters. Located above Living with the Land, Disney’s own innovative farm program, the Garden Grill’s family-style menu includes some food that’s sourced right there in the on-site garden. This all-you-care-to-eat meal is a great way to fuel up for a long day at Epcot.
Coral Reef features a seasonally changing menu with farm-fresh ingredients and sustainable seafood. While you dine, you’ll have a great view of an aquarium full of 4,000 sea creatures. There aren’t many inexpensive options on the menu, so it’s a great place to use the Disney Dining Plan if you have it.
Tangierine Cafe is a good choice for counter service in the World Showcase. Located in the Morocco pavilion, this restaurant offers several wraps and platters garnished with things like hummus, tabouleh, and couscous salad. Unfortunately, the children’s menu only offers hamburgers and chicken tenders, so I recommend ordering an adult meal for the kids to share.
Spice Road Table is one of the newest restaurants in the World Showcase, featuring small plates of Mediterranean food. I haven’t eaten here yet, but the menu looks great. The Greek Salad, Stuffed Grape Leaves, and Mediterranean Vegetable Platter all caught my attention. This will definitely be on our Epcot agenda the next time we visit. (Note: Spice Road Table is one of the few Disney restaurants that doesn’t participate in the dining plan.)
Teppan Edo is one of my favorite places to go for real food in Epcot. Traditional Japanese food is prepared right at your table, complete with knife tricks and fun conversation from the chefs. The children’s meals are Japanese too, and this was the first place my son ever ate rice that he actually enjoyed.
Le Cellier Steakhouse in the Canada pavilion is considered to be one of the best restaurants in Disney World. The menu features several healthy options, including a children’s menu that branches out beyond chicken nuggets and macaroni and cheese. This is also one of the priciest dining options in Epcot, and it requires two table service credits for those on the Disney Dining Plan.
Festival Kiosks and Outdoor Kitchens are my favorite place to grab a quick bite. They’re open during the annual Flower and Garden Festival as well as the Food and Wine Festival. If you’re visiting during the spring or summer, look for them throughout the World Showcase. Many countries serve three small plates of dishes traditional to their country. My children were so excited to enjoy Fruishi (fruit sushi) at the Japan Kiosk during our visit a few weeks back.

We haven’t been to all the restaurants in Epcot yet (there are dozens!), so I may have missed a few good ones. Please share your favorite Epcot restaurants in the comments.
