We are headed to the Disney area in June. But alas, have no budget for Disney passes this trip. Which resort Restaurant would you chose to eat in, that would give you a tasted of MAGIC without visiting a park? We surprised our DDs with lunch at Sanaa on our visit over Easter break and we all loved the food and seeing the animals. Any ideas?
We have DDs age 13 and 10.
'Ohana and WC are both favorites we have been to before.. We've never done 1900 Park Faire. Hmmm....DD 13 Has high end taste, she would love seeing the GF I am sure. Can you see the fireworks from GF? Or maybe we could time it to see the water pageant. Great suggestion, thanks.
I am thinking dinner this time. I've never been to Kona, but always want to try it. Wishes from the beach would be an awesome idea. Isn't there some place at the Poly that you can get Dole whip too? DD's would be in heaven...me too.
My favorite Table Service Restaurant among the resorts is the ESPN Club @ Disney's Boardwalk Inn & Villas. Even though it's got a sports theme I personally think their food options taste great & you will be surprised at how good it is. Now they don't accept ADR's, however assuming there is no major sporting event happening there should be very little or no wait to get in. Finally the boths & high top tables in the bar area always have open seating, so if they are free you seat yourself whenever you walk in.
Thanks everyone for the great ideas. Many of the choices were not available. I did get ADR for 1900 Park Faire at 7 PM.. DH and DDs have never been there. That should allow us time to see the electric water pageant and Wishes from the beach. It will be a great surprise for the girls. It will be great to have some of the magic without visiting a Disney park this trip.
I think you'll enjoy it. Your DDs will get the extra magic from the characters, the food is good, and GF is a great place to watch Wishes and the EWP. Plus, the band is just lovely in the GF lobby. Go early, explore the resort and just relax!
