Even though it has been quite some time since the parks reopened, not everything has returned back to normal. Despite reopening most merchandise locations, attractions, and all of the resorts, there are still quite a few things that still remain closed. And today, we’re looking at the Disney World restaurants you didn’t realize were STILL closed!
Traditional character meet and greets and character dining in Disney World are BACK in Disney World!
We’ve been checking out ALL of the meet and greet options in all four theme parks, but we can’t forget the character dining! So, which restaurants have brought back the hugs and high fives? This is a COMPLETE list of back-to-normal character dining in Disney World!
Disney World has some stellar character dining options. A meal where you can eat in the AC AND meet your favorite Disney characters? That sounds pretty tempting.
There are a good number of character meals to choose from when you’re in the Most Magical Place on Earth and we want to help make that choice easier. So, we’re RANKING every character meal in Disney World right now!
It’s that time of the year when the weather starts cooling off a bit and we even start thinking we might even need a sweater at night (yes, it DOES happen occasionally in Florida).
It’s also the holiday season, which means while we’re enjoying all the fun holiday decor at Disney World while we start buying ALL the new holiday merchandise, we also want to eat serious winter comfort food. And you know what we’re talking about, right? SOUP! We want soup!
Disney World sometimes closes rides, attractions, and restaurants for changes and scheduled maintenance.
We keep track of the refurbishments schedule and let you know every week what’s going to be closed in the parks and hotels. But now that a new year isn’t too far away (first of all, how did that happen so fast??) we’re taking a look at everything that’s going to be closed in Disney World in 2022. Some of these closures are on the calendar already, and others have just been announced as happening sometime in the year. And some spots on the list have not reopened yet from the Resort’s temporary 2020 closure. It’s a LONG list, so buckle up! [Read more…]
Getting ready for a Disney World vacation can mean a LOT of planning: where to stay, how long to go, and WHERE TO EAT!
Booking your Advance Dining Reservations is SUPER important. There are a LOT of Disney World restaurants that have hard-to-get reservations. To make sure you’re prepared to tackle your upcoming Disney World vacation like a pro, we’re sharing the dining locations that will be the HARDEST to grab a reservation for in 2022!
It may be hard to believe, but it has been a FULL year since the Disney World theme parks reopened following its four-month-long closure in 2020 [when this post was originally published]. It’s a unique anniversary many of us wouldn’t have predicted being faced with just a few years ago, but here we are!
Since then, a lot has changed — health and safety policies have been updated drastically to make face masks optional for most guests and Cast Members in many locations, and most social distancing measurements have also been lifted. For all of the things that HAVE returned to Disney World since the parks reopened, there are also a number of things that have STILL not come back.
Even though it’s been quite some time since Disney World closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are still lots of things around the resort that have remained closed.
Between the rides, restaurants, and resorts, there are a lot of locations that have yet to welcome guests again. Here’s a quick look at everything that still hasn’t opened in Disney World.
Please Note: We have been updating this post since its initial publishing so information regarding returning experiences and reopenings is current.
With Disney World set to reopen its Disney Vacation Club Resorts on June 22, along with Disney’s Fort Wilderness, we’re ready to head back to some of our favorite hotels on property and catch up on EVERYTHING we’ve missed since March!
But not so fast! While we were perusing which restaurants will open on June 22, we noticed there were SEVERAL dining experiences missing from those lists that made our jaws hit the floor! Here are six restaurants that we are SHOCKED to find will not be a part of their resorts’ initial reopenings.
Disney knows its foodie fans are always trying to recreate their favorites at home, so they’ve sent us a gift: food recipes.
And while we are SO appreciative that they’re thinking of us, we couldn’t help but notice they’ve missed the mark JUST A TOUCH in the recipes they’ve been sharing.
We have shared Disney’s recipe for a “frozen pineapple treat,” and while we love a good “frozen pineapple treat” as much as the next person, Dole Whip, this wasn’t. That got us thinking…what other iconic Disney recipes can we share with our readers? We have a few we think you’re REALLY gonna love.
