Two Unique Restaurants Are Reopening in the Port Orleans Resort and Disney’s Wilderness Lodge

If the delicious holiday treats at Walt Disney World haven’t already satisfied your appetite, then we have exciting news! Two Walt Disney World Resort hotel restaurants that were closed are reopening, according to the Disney Parks Blog, and there will be new offerings in store for Guests!

The first hotel restaurant that’s reopening is Story Book Dining at Artist Point at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, which uses ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’ as its inspiration. This eatery will reopen on December 16th, but you can book your meal starting on December 2nd.

The restaurant is coming back with some special bonuses as part of its return, including a “new Character Dining experience” that will allow everyone to observe Snow White, Dopey, Grumpy, and The Queen in the Enchanted Forest! While you’re observing these classic Snow White characters, you can enjoy “individually plated entrées”, “shared starters and desserts”, or cocktails like the brightly-flavored Enchanted Apple! Favorites like the Royal Prime Rib Roast and A Stroll Through Nature (which is a vegetarian option) are back, and so is the Poison Apple dessert that features “dark chocolate-apple mousse”.

If you like the sound of the meals and desserts from the Enchanted Forest, but want something more in keeping with ‘Princess and the Frog’, then head to Boatwright’s Dining Hall, the “hidden gem at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside” that’s reopening on December 14th! You can start booking reservations as early as December 2nd.

At this Dining Hall, you can “enjoy the flavors of the Louisiana bayou with the all-you-care-to-enjoy Chef’s Platter featuring ribs, Nashville hot chicken, smoked sausage, and barbecued beef brisket with mashed potatoes, mac & cheese, street corn, and green beans”. Other crowd-pleasers are General Fulton’s Prime Rib, the Deep-South Shrimp and Grits, Boatwright’s Jambalaya, and the plant-based Boatwright’s Harvest Jambalaya. For a dessert focused on “Southern sweetness”, try the Mississippi Mud Crème Brûlée, “a decadent chocolate brûlée with a chocolate shortbread cookie”!
