2. Oven Roasted Shrimp Scampi at Tony’s Town Square Restaurant

Magic Kingdom is home to a sweet Lady and the Tramp-themed Italian restaurant: Tony’s Town Square. This restaurant takes American-Italian cuisine and presents it in a classic yet refined way. Fans of the classic Disney film will enjoy all of the nods to the characters as they dine. After enjoying Tony’s garlic bread for the table, guests can choose from a variety of dishes like tortellini, spaghetti and meatballs, fettucine alfredo, and chicken parmesan. However, our favorite pasta dish to enjoy at Tony’s Town Square is Oven Roasted Shrimp Scampi. This dish takes shrimp with lemon, roasted-garlic butter, and white wine, and serves it over hot spaghetti. This pasta dish is light, refreshing, and perfect for enjoying after a long day at Magic Kingdom.

Earning its spot as number 1 is the famous Ohana noodles, served at Ohana Restaurant at Disney’s Polynesian Resort. This restaurant treats everyone like family and serves a delicious family-style buffet of meat, wings, pork dumplings, greens salad, and bread pudding for dessert. However, one of the dishes that is served during this feast is the Ohana noodles. These noodles are sweet with notes of brown sugar and pineapple, with hints of ginger and garlic noted throughout. They are truly unique and are a fan-favorite of so many guests for a reason.
