Our Top Favorite Table Service Restaurants at Walt Disney World


There are so many great places to dine on Walt Disney World property that it’s hard to narrow down the list to our absolute favorites – but we did. We’ve dine at these table service restaurants the most over the years of vacationing at Walt Disney World. What do they have in common? Well they both are all-you-care-to-eat options (can’t go wrong with that) and they are both located in Disney resorts, so no park ticket required. So, what is our favorite places to chow down, you ask?


Fall 2018 Trip Preview

It’s (almost) time for another vacation! We feel like we deserve one after the summer we’ve had.

This time the focus isn’t really Walt Disney World. Well, there really is no focus to this trip because we’re doing a little bit of everything!

This trip’s agenda includes:

  • 4 nights at Walt Disney World, staying at Disney’s Pop Century Resort
  • 5 night cruise sailing out of Tampa on Royal Caribbean’s Brilliance of the Seas to Cozumel and Grand Cayman
  • 2 nights at Universal to attend Halloween Horror Nights, staying at Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort


Top 9 Things to Do at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Before Animal Kingdom got a boost with the (fairly) new arrival of “Pandora: The World of Avatar”, it was largely regarded as the “park to skip” if you were in a time crunch.  While I can agree that Pandora has become the “main attraction,” so to speak, there are plenty of other great things to do during your visit to the park.

Without further ado, here are my “Top 9 things to do at Disney’s Animal Kingdom!”


Star Wars at Walt Disney World

Star Wars is going to have a huge presence in the Disney parks next year when Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens in both Disneyland and Walt Disney World. But let’s check out some of the Star Wars happenings at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World now.


Walt Disney World Free Dining Promotion 2018

The promotion that most Disney fans go gaga over is Free Dining – and it’s here! It’s changed a lot over the years, so this is the 2018 version:

  • You must purchase a 5-night/6-day non-discounted Magic Your Way package that includes the Park Hopper option.
  • Dates are August 20th – September 29th, November 24th -November 27th, and December 7th-December 23rd. NO dates in October this year, but if you check in before September 29th you can apply this promotion to your trip even if it extends into October.
  • Select value and moderate resorts stays will receive a free quick service dining plan. This will include 2 quick service meals and 2 snack options for each night of your trip. This year alcoholic drinks are included in the plan.
  • Select deluxe resort stays will receive a free standard dining plan. This will include 1 table service meal, 1 quick service meal, and 2 snack options for each night of your trip. This year alcoholic drinks are included in the plan.
  • You can pay to upgrade your meal plan. For example, if you want to stay at a moderate resort but prefer the standard dining plan, you can pay around $23 more for adults and $4 for kids to upgrade your dining plan.
  • There are many resort exclusions, and within the included resorts there are room category restrictions.
  • Inventory is always limited.

Sometimes it’s better to purchase a discounted package and add the dining plan. Remember, when you book the free dining promotion you are paying full price for the room.
