Disney has certainly come a long way and has become a foodie destination. During our visits in the early 1980’s, you would have been hard pressed to find a decent meal in either the parks or the resorts. We used to go off property to Jungle Jim’s in the Crossroads center to eat dinner. I remember one horrible buffet dinner at the Contemporary that was almost inedible. The parks offered typical amusement park food of hot dogs and hamburgers. I did not go to Disney then for the food, that’s for sure. Oh how times have changed!

Now, there is so much good food to be had, there is never enough time or stomach to try it all. My new favorite blog is DisDining.com which features descriptions and reviews of various restaurants around the World and lots of places that we have never eaten at. Aside from the Food and Wine festival, we have several new restaurant visits scheduled. And even with that, they’ll still be many more spots left untried. I think I need about a month in Disney World to sample all the delicacies. I never thought that would be the case.

Where is your favorite place to eat?

  1. I’m fascinated by the notion that it will be counter service lunch and table service dinner. Could be a major headache with ddp! Looking forward to adding this to our rotation. Mk dining is so hit and miss!

  2. The menu looks great and I was intrigued by how much the food story has changed for the better.
