Typically in Walt Disney World the park attractions are what most people focus on the most. It’s so easy to overlook all the wonderful dining locations while you are running from one thing to the next in the the most magical place on earth! Riding the Tower of Terror is exciting (its my most favorite ride in all of Walt Disney World!) but eventually all that running around catches up with you and we all need to stop once in a while to eat.
One of the wonderful things about all the dining options you have as a guest in Walt Disney World is that if a simple slice of pizza is what you crave, it’s readily available. But if you are desiring something a little more, there are meal options from pretty much every food category. Not only are there an abundance of quick-service locations, there are table-service and signature dining locations as well, and they are plentiful. Advanced Dining Reservations for table service dining is usually recommended although there are times when walk-ins are welcome as well. Not only can you get a wide variety of food service styles, there is a fabulous variety of meal options, from mac n’ cheese, to bratwurst in Epcot’s Germany Pavillion, or how about a South African dining experience in Animal Kingdom Lodge’s “Jiko”.
There are also dinner shows and character dining to add even more magic to your meals! Does enchanting music, authentic dances and a polynesian feast sound exciting? Try Disney’s Spirit Of Aloha Dinner Show in Disney’s Polynesian Resort. Or how about breakfast with Mickey and Friends? Try Chef Mickey’s, located in Disney’s Contemporary Resort!
Are your kids picky eaters? Disney has you covered. Most table service dining locations are happy to prepare something that may not be on the menu for your child, such as chicken nuggets or mac’n cheese. A helpful tip is to contact the dining location ahead of time and prepare them, but overall, Disney is happy to accomodate the pickiest eaters, as well as guests with special dietary needs.
Walt Disney World has dining options for every budget and taste. The options are endless! Furthermore, if you need information on dining plans offered with your Magic Your Way Vacation Package or need Advanced Dining Reservations, just ask your travel agent! Bon Appetite!
