One of the major components of booking a runDisney vacation is deciding where to eat throughout your trip. There are so many great places to choose from at each resort, it can sometimes seem overwhelming and hard to choose! When it comes to eating on race weekend, I always have one thing in mind… Carb-loading!


Luckily, Walt Disney World® and Disneyland® are full of great choices to help you to fuel up before you run and relax after you cross the finish line. Since I often get asked for recommendations on places to eat, I have gathered a list of some of my favorite restaurants, and some recommended to me by my runDisney family.

Walt Disney World Resort

Disney's Hollywood Studios®
Greek Yogurt
Walt Disney World Resort Hotels

Disneyland Resort

Downtown Disney Area
Fresh Salsa

Disneyland Resort Hotels

  • Napa Rose, Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa


I highly recommend that you make Advance Dining Reservations for these restaurants. And of course, be smart with what you order! Don't try anything too spicy or unusual just days before your race! Foods that you have eaten before (and are easily digested) are what you should stick with.


Do you have favorites that aren't on this list? Tweet me at @rundisneylori and let me know.
