What is the best place to eat on a theme park vacation? Theme Park Insider readers have been rating and reviewing restaurants at top theme parks and their associated hotels, and on July 4, we will reveal the winners of the 16th annual Theme Park Insider Awards, honoring the best in-park table-service, counter-service, and hotel restaurants in the world.
We would like to invite you to make your voice heard in this year’s awards. Below, we have listed the dozen or so restaurants that currently boast the highest average reader ratings in their category. Not all of these restaurants yet have gotten enough ratings to be eligible for the awards, so we’d like to get more ratings cast before the June 30 deadline.
If you have eaten at any of these restaurants in the past year, please follow the links to submit a rating. (Please rate only the restaurants you’ve visited!) And if you are a registered member of Theme Park Insider (registering is free, and only takes a moment), you can submit a written review and photos of your meal, if you would like.
