And we’ve been covering it all to keep you updated. But if you’ve missed some announcements specifically about menu changes and updates, here are all the menu updates we’ve seen this past month!
We’ve been keeping a close eye on all of the restaurant reopenings in Disney World!
While we’ve been snacking our way around the parks and watching a few Character Cavalcades along the way, we have especially been excited to see multiple spots around Disney World reopen during the holidays. And, it looks like another dining location is welcoming guests back through the end of the year!
We’ve seen SO many restaurants in Disney World reopen lately!
The Crystal Palace and Tomorrowland Terrace recently reopened in the Magic Kingdom, but other restaurants like to keep us on our toes, like Toyko Dining in EPCOT. After briefly reopening in November, Tokyo Dining will be reopening for a very limited time this week!
As the days go by and restaurants throughout Disney World continue to reopen, we’re still hoping for a return from one of our favorite dining spots in EPCOT!
Tokyo Dining has remained closed in World Showcase (aside from a limited few days in November), but with continued menu tweaks, we’re anxious that this MIGHT be a sign that a reopening is around the corner!
For those of us who have been anxiously awaiting the reopening of Tokyo Dining in Disney World, we have some exciting menu news to share! Unless of course you were particularly attached to ramen, in which case…brace yourself.
The Japanese restaurant in Epcot’s World Showcase has remained closed, but with a BUNCH of new menu tweaks, we’re crossing our fingers — and our chopsticks! — that a reopening is imminent!
We love to share our favorite tips for getting Advance Dining Reservations. But the thing is, we don’t ALWAYS have an ADR when we need one. Picture this: It’s dinner time and quick-service just isn’t going to cut it. Is there anywhere in Disney World you can get a last-minute reservation or walk-in?
There sure is! Join us as we take a look at the pretty big list of Disney restaurants where you can snag a last-minute reservation if you play your cards right.
And to help make sure you get GREAT EATS, we’re noting our DFB RECOMMENDED restaurants with a red DFB PREFERRED notation for you. There are plenty of kind of blah restaurants in Disney World that tend to always have dining reservations available…because they’re blah. 😉 Stick with these suggested spots and you’ll be firing on all cylinders!

If you’ve ever reviewed a list of dining options in Epcot’s World Showcase at Walt Disney World, you may have noticed that some pavilions have more eateries than others. France and Japan, in particular, not only have several restaurants each, they’re both in the process of adding new restaurants as well, which will bring the restaurant total in France to five and in Japan to four.
So why do Epcot’s France and Japan have so many restaurants each while Canada can’t even get a quick service spot?
The answer to this question is a little complicated. You may think that the inequality is due to French and Japanese cuisine being more celebrated in the real world, and thus restaurants in these pavilions are naturally more popular. [Read more…]
One of the most exciting things about visiting Walt Disney World Resort is that there is always something new to experience — even if you’ve been hundreds of times. Here we’ve gathered 36 Things You Didn’t Know You Could Do at Walt Disney World — so let’s all go try something new!
1. Experience the Magic Kingdom Flag Retreat
This moving Magic Kingdom experience requires no Fastpass+ — just a desire to participate in a formal flag lowering ceremony held at the Magic Kingdom flagpole in front of the Walt Disney Railroad Station. The ceremony includes fanfare by trumpets, the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance, and the singing of God Bless America and the Star Spangled Banner accompanied by the philharmonic.
After the lowering and folding of the flag, a guest veteran is handed the flag and a short procession up Main Street, U.S.A., is accompanied by a medley of U.S. military songs. This event takes place daily, so check with Guest Services or the Times Guide to find out when to watch!
