Disney Dining Quick Tip – Read the Menus Before You Leave Home

Making Disney Dining reservations is something I look forward to.  There is always my “go to” favorites for character dining, such as Akerhaus and Chef Mickey’s.  Then there are the new restaurants I’d like to try while on my trip.  After visiting Walt Disney World a multitude of times, I can pretty much tell you what is on the menu at the majority of the restaurants, or what you can expect from some of the dining experiences.   But there’s more to eating at Walt Disney World than meets the eye.  You should read the menus before you leave home.

  • Reading the menus assures you variety.  If you are on the Disney Dining Plan, you have a lot of options to spend those dining credits.  One complaint we hear from people is that the Quick Service restaurants all serve the “same thing”.  That is why it’s handy to read the menus before leaving home.  I like to make sure we aren’t just eating hamburgers and chicken tenders while on the DDP.  Reading the menus and having a list of restaurants and what they serve is helpful while we are deciding what to eat in the parks.
  • Reading the menus will help you prepare your children for their dining experience.  Do you have a picky eater?  My two boys always want to know what’s on the menu no matter where we are.  We read the menus with them, while making our ADRs, so they know what to expect.  Knowing they prefer breakfast foods to some dinner foods, I know that we’ll all have a more enjoyable experience if I make reservations for a character breakfast vs. a lunch or dinner.
  • Reading the menus beforehand will give you an idea of healthy eating options. Disney is trying  hard to create menus and items that allow you to make healthy choices.  It’s a good idea to be responsible, and check out the menus before you go.  This will give you the chance to decide what to splurge on, and where you’ll want to watch your calories.

Do you read the menus before visiting Walt Disney World?  If so, how do you find that to be helpful?
