The city of Orlando Florida bills itself as the “theme park capital of the world” and in fact it is home to Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando Resort, SeaWorld, and Legoland. Tourists can also visit and stay in areas like Lake Buena Vista and the Disney Wide World of Sports complex. Most who vacation in the area know exactly which attractions they want to see so the choices are easy. But choosing a place to eat is not as simple.
There are over 5000 restaurants in the Orlando area and they all have their information listed online. If a particular restaurant wants to check the way a listing appears, they can just go to Google My Business and click on the see it here option. An individual looking for a place to eat needs to deal with the issue that many Orlando restaurants are not just eateries but complexes that present an opportunity for a complete entertaining and dining experience. There are destinations like Topgolf where you can play golf and arcade games, have dinner and drinks, and enjoy live music all in one place. Then there are entire sections of the city designed for your shopping, dining, and entertainment pleasure.
Disney Springs – There are over two dozen restaurants located at Disney Springs. This area continues the theme park atmosphere created by Walt Disney World by providing great souvenir shopping and both indoor and outdoor entertainment and parades. But it may be most known for the number of celebrity chef-owned restaurants in the country. From Guy Fieri to Rick Bayles to Wolfgang Puck, you can sample a variety of food types in a number of different atmospheres. There are also over the counter eateries and theme dining offered by the Rainforest Café and T-Rex.
Universal City Walk – This village-like setting is the hub of the Universal theme park. The Walk is lined with restaurants but some of the rarer food attractions stand out. You can sample treats from the Toothsome Chocolate Emporium or the Cowfish Sushi Burger Bar. Even if you decide to only shop at City Walk you will be tempted by food stands offering a variety of treats and you probably will not be able to avoid entering the Hot Dog Hall of Fame.
International Bar and Restaurant Row – True to its name, this area offers foods from almost every country. Big name restaurants are combined with even bigger named entertainment to create a constant party atmosphere. With restaurants like Mango’s Tropical Cafe, Hanamizuki Japanese Restaurant, and Vincenzo Cucina Italiana, you can always find something to appeal to your taste.

If you want to avoid the crowds and just enjoy a meal, then the downtown area is the place for you to search.

Whatever Orlando restaurants you choose, just remember to make a reservation and take your appetite with you.
