Some of the things that you can usually count on are those dining reservations, which you can make 60 days before your visit and then forget about until it’s time to eat. But today we saw a BIG and unexpected dining reservation problem that you could encounter during your trip. Here’s what we know so far about this issue. [Read more…]
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!
Whether it was in Disney World or in your hometown, restaurants experienced limited capacity restrictions beginning in March of 2020 that seemed to all but erase reservation availability. Since then, however, capacity has more or less returned to normal — but has Disney’s Advance Dining Reservation process gotten any easier?
A lack of available dining reservations seems to be a hot-button topic and many readers have reached out with concerns. This led us to wonder if there were actually NO/very limited Advance Dining Reservations in Disney World. We put on our investigator hats and got to work to get an answer!
Prix fixe menus, or multi-course meals at a singular fixed price, have become more commonplace around Disney World. More recently, menus at new restaurants like Space 220 are totally centered around the prix fixe experience (EPCOT’s other new restaurant, La Crêperie de Paris, has a prix fixe option on their menu as well). Some long-standing restaurants have shifted to a prix fixe model as well, including Be Our Guest Restaurant, Cinderella’s Royal Table, and the new three-course menu at California Grill for the 50th Anniversary Celebration.
Is this just a slick new way for Disney World to get guests to pay more for more food than they’ll actually eat while disguising it as a bargain?
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!
New Years Eve will be here before we know it, and it’s sure to look a bit different in Disney World this year!
Last year, the parks closed earlier than they normally would, but this year, they’re staying open late again. EPCOT and Hollywood Studios are open until 12AM and Magic Kingdom is open until 1AM. There are also a few celebrations taking place over at Disney Springs at places like The Edison and Raglan Road Irish Pub. And, the first official party was just announced for a Disney World hotel!
We hope you’re having an amazing time celebrating Disney World’s 50th Anniversary so far!
