Hello everyone! As my next trip gets closer and closer, I thought I would talk about one of the things I’m most excited for… the food! I’m sharing with you all of the upcoming dining reservations we have! I’ll let you know if I’ve been there before, where the restaurant is located, and any thoughts I have on the restaurant.
Keep in mind that we made our reservations 180 days in advance of our trip (right at 6am), taking park hours into consideration. If we are eating at a resort, it’s because we will be visiting a park nearby that day. if we are eating at a restaurant in a park, guess where we will be that day! It makes it easier for me to keep track of everything, and takes a lot of travelling out of the mix. Also when I’m thinking ahead of what our schedule will be, if I can remember where we are eating, I can remember what we will be doing! Okay, with all that said let’s jump in!
Beaches & Cream at Beach Club Resort– I’ve never eaten here before but am really excited to try it! I’ve heard the food is really good, but the ice cream is even better! They serve the Kitchen Sink here which sounds interesting, but like a lot of ice cream. There will be a few of us on the trip so we may be able to conquer it, but we’ll see! I might stick with the No Way Jose instead. I’ve also never been to the Boardwalk/ Beach Club resort area so I am excited to see that in person. I feel like I have been there because I’ve seen it in so many videos, but I never have! I can’t wait to check it off my list.
O’hana at the Polynesian Resort– I am really excited to eat dinner here! I ate breakfast here in 2007 and don’t really remember much other than Stitch trying to eat our table. Like I said I don’t remember much about the Polynesian resort so it will be fun to see it again. I’m looking forward to dinner and hopefully trying one of those drinks that come in a pineapple!
Be Our Guest at Magic Kingdom– While I couldn’t snag a dinner reservation (probably the hardest dining reservation to get in Walt Disney World), I did a get a lunch reservation! I’ve never eaten there for lunch, so I’m excited to try something new and explore the restaurant more! If you have a lunch reservation, you can actually place your order 30 days in advance, which means you won’t have to wait in line to order at the restaurant! I will be trying this for our trip, so I’ll let you know my thoughts on it!
Teppan Edo at Epcot– I’ve seen this restaurant in a few vlogs I’ve watched, so I’m excited to eat there! This one was Ethan’s idea, and since there are a few of us going, we will most likely have a table to ourselves!
Kona Café at the Polynesian Resort– I’ve never eaten here before, and I’m excited to give it a try for lunch the day we are going to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party! We are thinking about visiting all of the monorail resorts on this day as well. Hopefully there will be some Christmas decorations up at the resorts 🙂
Tusker House at Animal Kingdom– I’ve never eaten here but I’ve heard good things about it! I like that it has some “different” options than the standard buffet, while still offering familiar foods. Plus, it’s a character meal, so that’s always fun!
Crystal Palace at Magic Kingdom– I haven’t eaten here since 2011 (I can’t remember what meal either), so I’m excited to head back! The food is fairly good (from what I remember), and I like to see Winnie the Pooh and friends 🙂

If you have eaten at any of these restaurants I would love to hear your thoughts! Let me know if there’s anything I should try, or avoid in the comments! I’ve also linked to the Walt Disney World website for all restaurants, so you can check out the menus to see where I’m eating!
Thank you so much for reading!
