4. Reservation Info
A common rookie dining mistake is to not make reservations for table-service (a.k.a. sit-down) restaurants. This is a grave error. Most restaurants fill up months in advance and walk-ins are rarely accepted during peak meal times. Instead, note that you can make reservations 180 days in advance of your trip. (Again, this applies to guests regardless of whether or not they booked a dining package. It also applies to guests staying on oroff-property.) To make Advance Dining Reservations (or ADRs), ask for assistance from an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner, book online, or call Disney directly at 407-WDW-DINE. While it may seem silly to be making dinner plans months in advance, this preparation will pay off.
5. A Foodie Destination
Surprisingly, Disney World has so much more to offer than amusement park fare. Sure, you won’t have trouble finding chicken fingers, but you can also dine on world-class steaks, sushi, and cuisine from all over the globe. EPCOT’s World Showcase and the Deluxe Resorts are well known for these fine dining experiences. Favorite “foodie” spots include the Contemporary’s California Grill, the Boardwalk’s Flying Fish, the Animal Kingdom Lodge’s Boma, and so many more. As with all tourist destinations, some locations excel more in ambiance than food. However; with just a little research, you can book meals at places that will make the dining experience satisfying and memorable.
We hope that these suggestions have brought some light to any Disney Dining confusion. With these tips on hand and the guidance your fellow Disney Fanatics, your next trip is certain to be the yummiest one yet!
