The Top Must-Eat-Here-in-2017 Restaurants at the Walt Disney World Resort

So here we are, a week into the New Year. Did you make any delicious resolutions yet? How about making a list of all the places you want to eat, drink, and be merry at the Walt Disney World Resort this year? Now THAT seems like the best kind of resolution to make.

Where are you eating this year at Walt Disney World?Where are you eating this year at Walt Disney World?

Last year was an amazing year when it came to dining at Disney World. So many new spots opened in 2016 (many of them in Disney Springs) and we also had some exciting food-related news. So let's check out the top spots you might want to add to your must-dine-at list for 2107.

1. Chef Art Smith's Homecoming Florida Kitchen: This new spot opened in 2016 in Disney Springs and celebrates Southern comfort food with Chef Art Smith's Florida flair. The fried chicken is amazing (according to all reports) and you just gotta try the Shine Cake and the Hummingbird Cake. Check out this recent review from our friends at the Disney Food Blog.

2. Tiffins and Nomad Lounge: In 2016, Disney's Animal Kingdom opened its first signature dining spot, Tiffins, and the adjoining Nomad Lounge. These spots have been on our Disney Dining Bucket List since opening (mainly because we really want to order the whole fried sustainable fish). The Nomad Lounge is a lovely spot to relax and enjoy an afternoon or evening cocktail.

3. Frontera Cocina: Disney Springs became the place to be in 2016, if you're a celebrity chef. Rick Bayless joined Art Smith and Iron Chef Morimoto when he opened Frontera Cocina last summer. The menu features dishes inspired by authentic and modern Mexican cuisine. And let's not forget about the margaritas and other cocktails (even one with a black ant rim). We're intrigued!

4. STK Orlando: Another spot to try this year is STK, the signature dining spot that opened in the summer of 2016 in Disney Springs. The Crispy Rock Shrimp, Little BRGs, and of course steak are all must-try dishes at STK. Dinner at STK is an upscale experience for sure.

5. D-Luxe Burger: This Disney-owned spot is the place to go if you're craving gourmet burgers, fresh cut fries with dipping sauces, and artisanal gelato shakes. The burgers aren't your standard theme park burgers and if you can't decide what dipping sauce you want for the fries, just ask for all six!

6. Magic Kingdom Restaurants Serving Alcohol: In late 2016 it was announced that four restaurants at the Magic Kingdom would start serving alcohol (joining Be Our Guest). The restaurants - Cinderella's Royal Table, Tony's Town Square, Skipper Canteen, and Liberty Tree Tavern - have added beer and wine to their menus that fit with the theme of the restaurant. Sure it goes against the long-held "no alcohol" policy at the Magic Kingdom, but we can't wait to see what it's like!

7. Ample Hills Creamery: We have a serious love of ice cream and we can't wait to check out this new-in-2016 ice cream shop at Disney's BoardWalk. The Disney World location is the only Ample Hills outside of Brooklyn, New York so you know it's special! The ice cream is house-made and features flavors like Malty Salty Pretzel Punch, Baked/Unbaked, PB Wins the Cup, and Ooey Gooey Butter Cake. Can't choose just one or two flavors? Choose an ice cream flight!

8.AbracadaBar: This magic-themed bar opened in the summer of 2016 with a backstory about magicians who mysteriously vanished 70 years ago and a menu featuring 'enchanting elixirs.' Drinks include The Conjurita and the Parlor Trick. Non-alcoholic drinks include the Seashore Sweet with cotton candy! If you're looking for a cool spot to relax on the BoardWalk you'll want to check out the AbracadaBar this year.

9. Amorette's Patisserie: This high-end pastry shop in Disney Springs has been wowing guests since mid-2016 with incredible cakes and sweets. The dome cakes are fun and often themed to Disney characters, and you'll also find macarons, cookies, and signature cakes. The sweets are a bit pricey but it's a good splurge. And don't forget to order a glass of champagne or sparkling wine to go with your treat.

10. New Restaurants Still to Come: This year we're eagerly awaiting the opening of Paddlefish (located in the former home of Fulton's Crab House), Wine Bar George, Planet Hollywood Observatory, and Choza Tequila. The slate of new restaurants coming to Disney World this year pales in comparison (so far) to the number that opened in 2016 but we're still excited to check them out!

What restaurants are you adding to you must-dine-here list for 2017? Let us know in the comments.

Many thanks to the Disney Food Blog for use of their photos.
