10. Lavish dining experiences
Disney is home to a vast number of well-known delightful dining venues and mealtime experiences for all to enjoy, including character dining, themed restaurants, and overall original eats. But there are also several other more elite culinary quests that make the Disney Dining A-List. From private dining, tasting events, tea parties, and other extras, the list goes on. The Chef’s Table at Victoria & Albert’s and the Chef’s Domain at Cítricos (both located at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa) are two such private dining pursuits in which you and a small number of guests can enjoy an intimate multi-course meal at a special place, in the company of the restaurant’s chef. Dine with an Imagineer options are currently offered at The Hollywood Brown Derby at Hollywood Studios and at Cítricos and let you share a private meal with one of Disney’s magic-making masterminds along with a select number of other lucky diners. Throughout the meal you will all learn all about different behind-the-scenes secrets and fascinating tidbits. Likewise, there’s the unique Dine with an Animal Specialist option at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge’s Sanaa Restaurant. The Highway in the Sky Dine Around takes diners on an epicurean epic adventure via monorail, where they will stop to enjoy a five-course meal beyond compare, spread out across three Magic Kingdom Area Deluxe Resorts—Disney’s Contemporary, Disney’s Polynesian Village, and Disney’s Grand Floridian. Don’t forget exceptional breakfast possibilities either, like the all-you-can-eat option that’s part of Disney Early Morning Magic—Fantasyland and Sense of Africa at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, which combines great food with backstage tours and personal animal encounters. Other engagements to consider include Afternoon Tea at the Garden View Tea Room (Grand Floridian), the Wanyama Safari and Dinner at Jiko—The Cooking Place (Animal Kingdom Lodge), Jiko Wine Tasting (Animal Kingdom Lodge), Savor the Savanna: Evening Safari Experience (Animal Kingdom Park), and so many others.
