    Are you allowed to dine at resorts if you are not staying on property? We would like to eat that the Old Port Royal Food Court, but are staying off property.

    Hi Fred!

    You can absolutely dine at the Walt Disney World resorts even if you are staying off property. The Old Port Royale Food Court at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort has a great selection of wonderful dishes for breakfast and for lunch. Please note that beginning in May 2017, the Old Port Royale Food Court will be unavailable due to refurbishment. 

    But don't fear, there are several other wonderful restaurants throughout the Walt Disney World parks and resorts that I highly recommend. Check out Cítricos at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. They have great Mediterranean cuisine. Another favorite of mine is Beaches & Cream at Disney's Beach Club Resort. This great burger and ice cream joint is located on the Boardwalk and is known for their Kitchen Sink ice cream sundae, made to share. Animal Kingdom Lodge also has a great selection of restaurants, including Sanaa, Boma - Flavors of Africa and Jiko - The Cooking Place
