Homecoming is located along the springs in the new section of Disney Springs. Just like the name suggests comfort food is the specialty here. Celebrity Chef Art Smith is the mastermind behind this Southern Florida cuisine. Originally from Florida, Smith makes his return to his home state and gives this place its name. If you have never heard of him before maybe you have heard of Oprah Winfrey? He was her personal chef for years!
Once inside this small dining location, you will instantly feel like you stepped out of Disney into a barn. It’s light and airy and has a very homey feel, at least for those of us who are used to the country life. It is covered with the details of the history of Florida.

Homecoming features specialties like fried chicken and shrimp & grits. Their chick is marinated for 24 hours in buttermilk, this keeps their chicken from being dried out and tasteless. If you are struggling with what to pick out on the menu I would stay stick with a chicken dish, you just can’t go wrong.
If you love comfort food and aren’t worried about eating healthy than Homecoming is a great place for you to try. One of my favorite parts about this restaurant is that a vast majority of ingredients sourced from local farms, ranches or fisheries. The prices at the restaurant are pretty reasonable as far as Disney pricing goes. If you stick with a sandwich or burger off the menu plus combine it with a discount card (if eligible) it makes it about the price of a higher end quick service location in the parks.
If you are looking to be in and out quickly you may want to give the outside bar a try. Here you can pick up a more limited amount of food items but it does include some of the best, like the fried chicken sandwich. The Shine Cake is also available here and a delicious way to treat yourself after a long day of running around Disney World.
