4 Amazing Non-Park Restaurants at Walt Disney World

Polynesian Resort Ohana's Grill

2. ‘Ohana Nestled inside Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, ‘Ohana is a restaurant that truly can’t be passed up. Breakfast and dinner are both buffet style, but breakfast is character dining and dinner is not. During breakfast, you are able to meet Lilo, Stitch, Mickey and Pluto while feasting on waffles, eggs, biscuits, bacon and sausage. Trust me—as far as breakfast spots ...

Peter Pan Loading

6. Ride the classics While some may think they are outdated and tired, I am such a sucker for the classics. Attractions like Carousel of Progress and It’s A Small World make me feel like I’m riding a piece of history, which is pretty awesome.

However, Cinderella’s Royal ...

Cinderella’s wishing well is tucked away near Merida’s meeting spot, and it offers a beautiful side view of Cinderella Castle. It’s also nice that the money ...

1. Get pixie dusted This is on my own personal must do list and my family sighs as they reluctantly walk with me to New Fantasyland. I love the process behind getting pixie dusted and it’s magical whether you’re 3 or 23. You get to make a big wish and have pixie dust sprinkled on your head, making you glimmer ...
