Dining At The Disney Resorts? Here Is What NOT To Miss! (5:5)

Chef Mickey's
When making your Advanced Dining Reservations (ADRs), don’t overlook the resorts as options. By dining outside of the parks, often the crowds are smaller and the dining experience is more relaxed. The exception being character dining at the resorts, which are often as crowded and rushed as the locations inside the park. The resorts offer an extreme amount of variety in their dining choices and, like the parks, there are quick serve and table options as well as bars and lounges to pop in for a quick drink/snack. As with any ADR, remember to tell the cast member of any food allergies or special requests when making the reservation. The chefs are more than happy to accommodate and will walk through every menu item (even buffets) to be sure that it is safe for anyone with a special dietary need. Disney Dining Plan (DDP) and Tables In Wonderland (TIW) will apply to many of the restaurants, so be sure to check with the cast member when making the reservation to be sure you are getting the best possible deal on your dining.
When planning to dine outside of the park, another important consideration is travel time. Depending on the time of the reservation, getting out of the park could be a problem. Always be sure to give plenty of travel time so that the reservation isn’t missed. Nothing could make a day less magical than missing a reservation and having a party of hungry/cranky people. Also, be sure to see exactly which meals are served. Many do not offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Some are dinner only! So the bottom line is plan, plan, then double check your plan!
Below is a compressive list of all the resort dining options outside of the four parks at Walt Disney World. There are many wonderful options that have outstanding meals, service and atmosphere.
Bon appetit!
