There are a lot of restaurants at Walt Disney World and dining can be an important and fun part of any Disney trip. In fact, the single largest component of Walt Disney World vacation planning typically is (or at least should be) dining. Beyond just making “good” Advance Dining Reservations and purchasing the Disney Dining Plan, there are a lot of things that can save you time and money, or improve your Walt Disney World experience just based on little decisions–or big ones–that you make with regard to where you eat at Walt Disney World.
Many of you have loved our 101 Great Walt Disney World Tips post, and since dining is such a big thing, we thought we would see if we could follow that up with one specific to dining. This was no easy task. While there are literally 1,000 tips we could share based on our experiences eating at Walt Disney World, many of those would be hyper-specific, probably too specific, and thus not things we really thought would be good for more than a few slots on the list here and there.
Rather than a list with tons of menu recommendations and things like that, we decided to come up with 101 random tips based upon our experiences in years of dining in nearly every restaurant at Walt Disney World that would be helpful to most readers. These tips consist of both fundamental, high level tips (like the necessity of making ADRs) and some more specific tips (like what to order for breakfast at Roaring Fork).
You’re going to find that some of these tips aren’t applicable to you–that’s probably a good thing, as following 100+ tips just relating to dining on a single Walt Disney World trip would probably take a bit of tenacity. You may also disagree with some of these tips, but such is the nature of such a list, which offers subjective tips.
We do want to point out that many of these tips were submitted by fans of the Disney Tourist Blog Facebook page. We mention this not to say “thanks” but as a follow up to that last point about you possibly disagreeing with some tips. If you do disagree with any of the tips here, they are definitely the tips submitted by readers. The tips with which you agree are the ones I thought up.
Just kidding on that–and a huge thanks to the readers who offered their two cents. Although this list is 95% things we thought of, there were several comments that corroborated our tips, and other pretty clever ideas we had never considered. Plus, it’s always helpful to get multiple perspectives when it comes to anything Walt Disney World-related. On that note, if you have some tips of your own that we didn’t cover, please help others out and share them in the comments!
We have a lot of ground to cover, so let’s get started with our list of 101 Delicious Walt Disney World Dining Tips… (more…)
