Cast Members will welcome you in the lobby. The parquet floors, gold trim and blue drapes bring a feeling of southern Louisiana charm. I suggest arriving early (about 30 minutes) for your reservation and requesting a table by the water. These tables will offer a perfect view of the beginning section of the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction. You will hear the sounds of the swamp, like crickets and frogs chirping. You can see fireflies twinkle, the old fishing boats and cabins on the bayou and watch park guests float by.
Hollywood’s Golden Age spanned three decades and gave us classic films and movie stars. From the late 1920’s through the late 1950’s, people were mesmerized by the glitz and glamorous lifestyles of film makers and actors.
Now we can relive this magical era by dining at Carthay Circle Restaurant in Disney California Adventure Park. A meticulous reproduction of the original Carthay Circle Theater, which premiered Walt Disney’s Snow White in 1937, Carthay Circle Restaurant is located on Buena Vista Street.
Dining options at Walt Disney World Resort abound! You can dine with beasts, royalty and critters. You can try cuisine from almost every country in the world. You can have the Kitchen Sink for breakfast and do a pub-crawl for dinner. Or you may desire a restaurant with a completely distinctive atmosphere and dishes reminiscent of a simpler time.
Let’s go back to poodle skirts, convertibles, milk shakes and drive-in movie theaters! Let’s check out Sci Fi Dine In Theater at Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
Sci Fi Dine In Theater is on the Disney Dining Plan and is one table service credit. Advanced reservations at 180 days prior are highly suggested. This restaurant is on Commissary Lane near the Star Tours attraction. Tables can seat 4-6 guests, with a few options for larger parties.
As you walk up to the entrance, you will see a 1950’s convertible and an enormous sign.
Car Hops are there to greet you with a friendly smile, take you to the drive-in theater and seat your family at a table…? a car…? This is what makes your experience so unique. Your table is a car… your car is a table!
When you think of a Walt Disney World quick service meal, does your mind automatically go to burgers, nuggets and mac and cheese?
I believe Disney has really raised the bar when it comes to their quick service options with Satu’li Canteen. This restaurant is in the new Animal Kingdom land of Pandora – The World of Avatar and offers healthy dishes with well-known ingredients.
Looking for a bit of Southern hospitality and fantastic BBQ fare? Take a closer look at River Belle Terrace in Disneyland’s Frontierland. Located next to Pirates of the Caribbean and across from Rivers of America in a quaint white building with tall columns, green shutters and intricate wrought-iron railings, you can’t miss this table service restaurant.
Garden Grill, located in the Land pavilion in Epcot, is one of those hidden treasures that all families must experience. Chip ‘n Dale’s Harvest Feast will now be a character dining option for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
