We have been here in previous years when visiting Disney so looked forward to another experience here and booked before leaving home using the Disney App. I do think that when dining at Disney it is not just about the food it is the experience and hopefully, a unique experience. I was a little concerned when we first arrived at... More

One of the best meals ive had in a restaurant but also great atmosphere and it was an amazing experience to watch the fish and diners whilst eating. Never ate here before and I would advise booking well in advance but the staff were lovely at it was an overall amazing experience will go again 100%

I ate here 15 years ago with my family and it was better than I remembered! My husband and I just got back from a week long trip to Disney and on our last night we ate at the Coral Reef restaurant. We arrived 30 minutes early for our reservation in order to *request* a table by the aquarium. The... More

We are not Disney frequent visitors. We came here to celebrate grandkids birthday for a week. First night dinner was fast food in the food court- uh - not good. Foodies like us would rather go hungry. But today for lunch was a different story. Made reservation at Coral Reef - a pleasant surprise ! Good seat with a view... More

The food at the restaurant was outstanding. The steak was amazing. The service was like no other. Well worth the wait and time. Our table was right across from the big aquarium. Definitely a must when you eat there. So entertaining.

To truly get the most of your Disney vacation you need to "stop and smell the roses" appreciate everything the parks and restaurants have to offer. Absorb every detail. The lighting, sounds, smells.... Our first trip to WDW was very rushed and when we left I realized I was so focused on having 'fun' and hurrying to experience everything that... More

The chef came out to discuss my food intolerances with me and we were able to easily adapt the menu to suit my needs. I had the best baked chicken from a restaurant and a salad that could have served as a main course in itself. This is definitely a family-friendly place as the huge aquarium wall fascinated even the... More

A repeat visit. We checked in earlier than our reservation and were seated promptly. It is a bit crowded and noisy. Tables are fairly close together, which makes it hard to talk to each other. Service was fast. The food well prepared and tasty. We plan to go back on future visits.

I won't recommend this restaurant to anyone. If you want to see the aquarium you can do so with out paying. I got the salmon and my sister got the seafood noodles. I ended up not eating all the salmon because it was freezing cold and tasted way over cooked. My sister thought her food also cold and her noodles... More
