While we love a signature dining experience like Victoria & Albert’s, there certainly comes a time where we have to wonder if it’s still worth the price. If you’ve been considering booking the Chef’s Table, you now have an additional $100 per person to consider. Let’s break the entire experience down to determine if a $350 dinner at Disney World is really worth it.
There are SO MANY exciting changes happening around the Walt Disney World resort!
Between new attractions (hello- Rise of the Resistance!), Epcot’s amazing transformation, and new resort openings, it can be hard to keep up with the latest and greatest restaurants to hit the Disney world scene.
Disney World has so much to offer when it comes to dining — everything from incredible snacks to Table Service meals, all the way up to the good stuff — Signature Dining. But eating the best of the best comes with a steep price tag — both out of pocket AND on the Disney Dining Plan. On the Dining Plan, these choice restaurants will cost ya TWO table service credits!
If you’re going to be dishing out two of your credits on a meal, you want to make sure you are getting the ultimate value for using them! That’s where we can help! We’ve gathered together some repeat favorites as well as a crop of new additions to our list of BEST two credit restaurants at Disney World.
We’re feeling quite fancy this morning as we take a jaunt over to the European Riviera.
At least we feel that way because Disney’s Riviera Resort is OPEN today! We’re live from the opening of the NEWEST Disney World Resort hotel and we’re checking out everything there is to see and do over at Riviera.
Of course, that means we’re also stopping by Topolino’s Terrace — Flavors of the Riviera to do a FULL REVIEW of their Breakfast à la Art with Mickey & Friends experience, and you’ll definitely see some familiar faces.
Hello again from Jaleo in Disney Springs!! We have found ourselves back for more tapas, paella, and sangria! They’re just so good we couldn’t resist.
Jaleo is a Spanish restaurant known for its authentic cuisine and cooking style. It’s brought to us by James Beard Award-Winning Chef José Andrés, and this is the fifth Jaleo location in the country. It’s also the largest!
Like I said, we enjoyed Jaleo on opening night, but with such a large menu, we were excited to finally go back and try new items!
Jambo! Recently, we were at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and had a hankering for a nice and unique lunch. Having not been to Tiffins in a while, it seemed like the perfect choice.
Tiffins is the only signature restaurant in the park and features African and Indian inspired dishes. In the past, we have really enjoyed our meals here, but they have updated the menu since our previous reviewed visit and we were excited to check out both some old favorites and new choices.
in the Canada Pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase at Walt Disney World is a signature dining spot for lunch and dinner.
Le Cellier Steakhouse
It’s tucked low in the side of the pavilion, and entering this popular restaurant is like stepping into an elegant wine cave cellar.
We’ve dined at Le Cellier many times, starting back before the Disney Dining Plan even existed, and then when it was still a one-credit meal for both lunch and dinner. That changed in 2012, when dinner became a signature dining experience requiring two Disney Dining Plan table service credits. Then, in 2013, lunch at Le Cellier also went signature, and lots of readers wanted to know if it was still worth a visit.
The short answer is yes… if you can spare the credits or bite the budget bullet out of pocket. Le Cellier crafts high-quality meals with thoughtful components and incorporates Canadian ingredients in subtle ways.
But I’m always re-trying old favorites to ensure that DFB can still endorse them, so I journeyed back to the Great White North to confirm Le Cellier’s place among the great restaurants of Walt Disney World.
The dining room at Le Cellier creates a distinctive dining atmosphere — and it’s one that I love. [Read more…]
