Le Cellier Steakhouse at Epcot World Showcase

Photo credit: http://guide2wdw.com/

For my birthday this year, my wife booked us a reservation at Le Cellier Steakhouse in the Canada exhibit in Disney World's Epcot World Showcase. Forget about a walk up table as it simply is not going to happen. Most recommend making a reservation 180 days ahead of time. We did not have to go quite to that extent, but a reservation will be a requirement as it is the most requested dining reservation within the Disney World Resort.


Yes, it is pricey.  I will not begin to tell you any different, but sometimes in life, you get what you pay. And this is one of those occasions. The steaks are cut somewhere between 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick. A medium rare steak while having its traditional warm red center will come out with a wonderful exterior seer, amazingly tender, and full of flavor. If you prefer your steak medium, medium well, or we'll done, I will never understand you. But in any case, I would recommend having your steak butterfly cut to achieve the finish you desire just because they are so thick.



I have not yet sampled them, but I understand their Whole grain, pretzel, and sourdough breadsticks and their Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup are the requests of repeat customers.

For the adults seeking a refreshing beverage, they have a well stocked bar with a separate drink menu that is as thick as the steaks. I am comfortable saying that everyone should be able to find a beverage to their delight.

The price may preclude visitors from dining there on every visit to the Disney World Resort,  I would submit that it merits a position on your bucket list.

A belated Happy Birthday! That looks like a great place to celebrate. Thank you for the review and the reservation warning...

A friend's son picked up a sous vide device in Amazon and "cooked" a whole pile of steaks (about 100 or so, and each one sealed in a vacuum bag) at one time to med-rare (129°F). Then when someone was ready, he cut the vacuum package, and threw it on a very hot grill for about a minute to sear the outside. They were uniformly cooked all the way through. I was pretty impressed.
